Walking the line

CardioTrainerI try to walk every chance I get during lunchtime at work (30 minutes), and I use Cardiotrainer.  It keeps me informed every few minutes by announcing my distance, speed and calories, and it also records my walk on a map, allowing me to see exactly where I walked. Over time I’ve noticed that these maps result in some rather interesting shapes, and I could see how it would be very easy for someone to actually draw things during their walks, much like those who leave giant messages that only something like Google Maps can actually see. I uploaded few of my recent walks, most of them 30-minute periods over lunch at work.  Take a look.

I find it interesting how some of them make me look drunk, zig-zagging back and forth a lot.  I think GPS measurements vary a bit more depending on cloud and/or wind  conditions… in ADDITION to my usually trippy walking style, that is…
