training status: unproductive

76.00 minutes

I know better than to be insulted by technology, algorithms, or any piece of software, but it still made me do a double take when after proudly finishing a ten klick training run this morning my new watch announced that my training status was "unproductive." The calculation with my always-on heart rate monitor on the new watch compared me to the last time I wore my last rarely-on heart rate strap run, which was probably a couple years ago when I was mid-training for something serious. "Oh, b.t.w.... compared to the last time we measured you doing a training run you're kinda sucking air these days, huh?" I'll take it. I finished and I didn't need to stop for a coughing fit, not even once.
