Default Counting Laps

Well, sometimes I run on our indoor track. I have used the lap counter on my Timex Iron-man watch. I recently got a Garmin and the foot pod with it. It will track my pace/distance. If I wanted I could turn the GPS off and still have the foot pod count pace/distance & track my laps on the same watch. My wife walks and she uses her phone and clicks the lap counter on her stopwatch feature.

I kind of want to start a thread about suggested routes here. Running is one part, but we also try to use the time to sight see. The one trip to Costa Maya- we thought it would be interesting to walk the small village on the beach, so we went out a few more miles, and getting back to town was a stroll through before the finish 2 miles to the ship.

Sometimes, the routes are not all that great, OR I'm just so hot that it's miserable. But we try.
I would love to see your running route for Nassau. We are going on the Oasis in may and only in port for a few hours but long enough to get a run in.

Rubber band counting has been suggested for keeping track of one's daily water quota...8 bands.

Sorry I missed this- we were on the enchantment last week.

One "easy" one is start at the port, run toward and over the bridge, and then stay on the main road going the opposite direction of Atlantis until you reach the guard gate. That should be close to 3 miles. If you want more, you can run into Atlantis for an extra mile. Net 6-8 miles.

The long one isn't as easy- I'd need to map it out, as it goes into the neighborhoods. but it's a 5 out and back route that runs by both of the bridges and out to a very very small fort before heading inland.

Going over the bridge is the safest, and easy to follow. But the bridge is a BIG hill.....
