The true answer to that was that I couldn’t remember. For the past few years, I have become a slave to tracking my pace through Strava. I rarely leave the house for a run without recording it, and have become part of the ‘if it’s not on Strava, did it really happen?’ club. Sometimes that’s a really good thing, but sometimes it’s pretty demoralising and probably not very good for your mental health. When you see that you’re running slower than you normally would, not as far as you did last week, or not as consistently than the previous month, you inevitably start to lose motivation and can quickly find yourself in a downward spiral. Of course, that’s how the apps operate, they give you a target which makes you want to run more, and use the app more.
