Using the Running Log
Run Type or Walk Type - Example run or walk types that you might enter into your running log include Training, Light, Moderate, Vigorous, Hike, Hill(s), Intervals, Long Steady Distance, Marathon, or Race.
Pace - Strictly speaking, pace is another word for speed, which is distance divided by time. However, it is also common to record your pace as the amount of time required to walk or run a specific distance, like a 6-minute mile or a 2-minute lap. Unless you are carrying a GPS device, you can't easily track your speed as you run or walk, but you CAN check your TIME as you complete laps or hit mile markers.
