Sweaty GPS?

Very strange data from my run today. Somehow my phone was out of sync with the satellites and gave me bogus data for the run. The sun was pretty intense and I was sweating a lot, so thought maybe the water was messing with the device in some way it shouldn’t be.

When I finished and looked down at the display, it showed some staggering results. I was thinking, “Awesome! A day or two off from running, come back and look what I can do!” In reality, I didn’t just run nearly 8k’s or average a blistering 12km / hr. The top speed stat, which is always funky to begin with, gave me the biggest chuckle.

Top speed: 140km / hr.

Fast enough to hydroplane on water like these guys.

Oh, and today’s run.
