Right. I decided that I had had enough of living in dream land and I should calibrate my machine. After all, much as I like to think that I can whizz round my runs in under 10 minute miles, I know this is far from the truth. So today I measured a mile in the car and calibrated.
I was due to run 20 minutes today. Not walk/run, RUN! So after I had calibrated the Nike+ I set it for another 10 minutes and off I ran. Well, typically the rest of my route included a lot of uphill so I had to walk. It was either that or a coronary. The end result was that my run averaged a 12 minute + mile. Oh well. At least I now know the truth. And I can get faster. I can.
The excellent thing about today was that I really enjoyed my run, even though it was hard. And when I came back and uploaded it onto my computer I saw that 22 people have taken up my " 100 miles by Christmas Challenge "How fab is that ??!! I am coming 13th at the moment, which is not bad I reckon and I almost went straight back out again to move up the table. But I didn't.
So if you have one of these brilliant machines ?? JOIN IN !!! :)
