Fit Friday Finds: 3.29.13

It’s been a few weeks since I did an installment of Fit Friday Finds, but after discovering this fun running tool online, I knew I had to do one for this week!

With , you can choose your distance and your goal time, and it immediately spits out what your splits have to be to hit your goal time. However, unlike other online running tools, you can actually choose your exact race so the tool takes elevation into account (which is huge for me running in hilly Pittsburgh!).

I started by choosing my location and distance…

I hit “go” and then chose my race…

Next, I hit “settings” at the top…

…and then put in my goal time (4:00) and adjusted my expected pace on hills (10 is the average; I put 12 since I haven’t trained on hills as much as I’d like).

I scrolled down, hit “save,” and bam…

Out came my paces (which sound quite manageable, thank goodness!).

There are many different races to choose from, and I love that the app adjusts for elevation. You can even order a tattoo with your splits to put on your arm on race day. Pretty sweet!

And, on a completely unrelated note, here was another fun thing I found this week…I am a Gilmore Girls fan through and through and just loved this article from BuzzFeed!

Any other Rory & Loralei fans out there? What’s your goal for your next big race?

    Its official…my coffee addiction definitely stems from watching too many episodes of Gilmore Girls!

    I used to love Gilmore Girls! Have you seen bunheads by the same writer/producer? It reminds me of Gilmore Girls so much and so I really enjoy it :)
