GPS track of where, and how far, I ran during today's soccer game

For this game I ran approximately 3.59 miles (5.78km) in 80 minutes.

 

I think I'd normally run a little further, but not only was today rather hot, we were also a man down for half the game, then two down for the second half, and three down for 5 minutes when someone got a yellow card. By the mid-point of the second half I could barely move I was so tired.

 

I put the GPS unit in the "cup pocket" of my underpants for the game (along with my fitbit).

 

Update: to give you some context, according to FIFA stats for the 2010 World Cup, Michael Bradley, a USA midfielder, averaged 8 miles per game. Wayne Rooney, a striker like me, averaged 5.7 miles per game. Their games were all 90+ minutes.
