Yesterday, Clay posted about Stravaling – trolling for segment Course Records or King of the Mountain…. He went out and tried to best my 2 mile Time trial, but had some technical difficulties. IT IS fun to go Stravaling, but I have been using Strava in a slightly different way. There are certain courses that I run only at certain times of the year. In the fall, I run from Hillivew to Mt Rite Aid. In other seasons we tend to favor other runs and courses. I searched my logs and found 7 Mt Rite Aid runs going back to the fall of 2009. I am sure that I ran it more times than that, but I may not have always worn a GPS. Anyway, I was able to download the GPS data from each of these runs and compare them with Mt Rite Aid, last Monday and today.
I did not set off trying to set a record this morning, but that is exactly what I did. My time from the light where we cross Rancho Vista up to the top of Mt Rite Aid was 27:09. Of course I set it up as a Strava Segment.
