If you want to make a histogram, they look way better in R than in Excel.
Then I thought about it and thought that sometimes I run with other people and I might run at their pace (slower or faster) so I figured out how to do some plots with Who I ran with too.
- In my base data, if I ran with more than 1 person, I only listed 1 person.
- If I ran 1/3 of the run with someone else and 2/3 on my own, I listed the other person
- Most of the times that I ran/walk with Dave, I did not put them in my base data. If I ran/walked with him then ran on my own, then I put it in the file.
- I would have graphed the mile pace versus mph but couldn't figure it out.
- I have run with more people but if I only ran with them once or twice, I removed them. I kept Jill on because I liked that regression line.
- I had to go back and fill out half of March, April, and May last night because I was slacking off back then. So I might have missed running with someone.
- Update: Someone pointed out that the lack of trend could also be because I've run when injured.
I need to make a file with only my data with Dave and not when I ran on my own before/after.
On a side note when I was going through the data, I had all the distances written in my file but not the total time. I was using my Garmin tabs to fill that out if I filled those out. A few weren't on there so I made a guess. Then once I realized since I ran it on the treadmill, it might be in my running notebook. It was. And I was 1 second off from my guess! Then later I had another one I didn't know and guessed. Then I realized it might be on the Garmin site. It was. I was 1 second off again. Both of my guesses were 1 second too slow. Maybe I don't even need all this data since apparently I can guess. Or maybe all the data, helped me guess the missing times. I based my guess on where I ran and the time of year so I knew what shape I was in. I also know that treadmill runs tend to be faster because they weren't as hilly.
Time to look into this program some more to see what else I can do. I have a lot of files of data but they don't mean that much so it's hard to play with the program to see what cool things to do. I just need more data. I need to run more to get more data. I need to run with Hilary more times so she can be included. I need to do other things (I just don't know what) so I can get more data. Any suggestions?
