11:57 a.m. - Due South

I ran all the way down to the South Bridge again today to Skaha Lake and knocked 3 minutes off the time I last did it in. Still running for 6 mins and having a 1 minute breather. Hopefully my body won't go into meltdown after last time I did that run.

The recently recalibrated pedometer says 7.83km. I still haven't verified any of these distances against the 1:50,000 map. I must, I really must. Or come in on my bike and check it with that toy... or Hubby's GPS.

I don't 'get' GPS systems. We sell them in the gearshop, and I've taken one out for the day to play with. And I just don't get what the fuss is all about. Give me a map and compass any day...

I'm with you on that one. Someone sometimes obsesses too much about it being in THAT direction and I have to repeatedly point out that it's much easier to get there using this wiggly path on the map than bushwhacking in a straight line for 5 miles.

Saying that, in situations where it's hard to get a point of reference they're a good tool eg. river gullies, treed slopes and monotonous railway cuttings where you can't tell where the next bend is and can't remember where the last one was. I've better things to do than count steps and the pace varies depending on the weight of my legs.
