Do You Stravulate?

This is my first year logging my pre-Northshore workouts religiously on an application like Strava. Overall it’s a helpful way of
memorializing the distances and speeds I already know I’m traveling, and tracking some of the new routes that I might want to try again 일빵빵 다운로드. I love looking at the map afterwards to see what previously unexplored corner of earth I’ve found. For people who aren’t already motivated to exercise, something like Strava can give them a new lease on life 다운로드.

This is a tool that also can be abused however. I’ve seen people so focused on accumulating mileage that it becomes the sole reason for a workout, come hell or high water 천지인 플러스 다운로드. I’ve seen others take their attention off the road just to check their statistics. Then there are the types who pause the recording mid-workout so their average speed doesn’t drop 산돌 고딕체 다운로드. It just so happens that Strava doesn’t consider skating to be worthy of tracking in the same way as it does biking or running. It won’t create a training log to track progress, segment, or power goals unless you set your activity to cycling 도로명 주소 다운로드.

At this stage of my athletic career, I’m all about enjoying my workouts 다운로드. That’s my goal. It’s not my full time job to suffer like I
used to, so I get into good shape precisely so I don’t have to hurt when I’m out there going hard 스페인하숙 4회 다운로드.

So far, I’ve figured out how to use Strava without Stravulating — that is without letting Strava control my life 다운로드. How about you?
