There are two Nike apps. One is gps and one is not. I have the one that is not.

Instead of distance being gaged by gps, I have a sensor in my shoe that talks to my app. The distance came out almost perfect when I did never land 5K. HOWEVER, this is because I calibrated my very first run in the most accurate way. Instead of on a treadmill ( or instead of using factory setting) I started at the start line at the high school track field, ran 4 laps at a CONSISTENT pace (doesn't matter what pace as long as doesn't vary) to the same exact start line... Staying in the SAME LANE the whole run. This is the best ad most accurate way to calibrate because the track field is Pre measured to perfection.

Now, if there were minor differences in a race than it is usually because I took extra steps to use a restroom, stop at a station...

This has worked very well for me. HTH

Live to run, can't wait for never land 5K 2013!!!!!

This morning I ran 30 minutes straight on the treadmill. That made me do this:
Congrats on the 30 min! And remember what you said ~ any progress is good progress plus you still have 4 months to go. You'll totally be ready for the 1/2.

Kinda. I bought a cheap neon shirt at Michael's that I'm going to cut up a little and found some cheap jelly bracelets and neon glasses to accessorize. Thank you Halloween!

I'm doing the 80's run down here in San Diego... I have an "I the 80's" shirt - neon pink, of course. That will be fun!

Aaawww!! SD, how I miss you! Where do you live? I used to live in North Park just overlooking Balboa and I miss it so much. I always say if a job opportunity opened I'd move back there in a heartbeat. I used to get my fill w/ the RnR races, but they charge waaaaay too much. But I signed up for the SD 1/2 in March.

8 days at Disney

Hi all DH and I just got in late last night from our wonderful vacation at DLR and I am now trying to catch up on all things email and such.

Am a little off on the Tink training but with my "mileage" my legs didn't get a rest. 2 of the days we walked 9.5 miles and the rest was 7.25 to 7.8 miles.

We did make it to the power walk 2 of the days we were there and it was a fun time. Sally kept the pace up. We walked at 16 min mile one day and the other day was a 15.5 min mile.

I will get my runs in today and fri and then on Sun I will run the Race for the Cure 8K then I should be back on pace for the training.

How's everyone's training going?

I just got in from my 30 min run for the day. I ended up going right around 5km in the 30 mins so not too bad considering its really hot and sunny here today.

Just over 4 months ladies! Woohoo!

I did P90X legs and back yesterday, so gave the legs a much needed rest today. They hurt! But plan on doing a long run tomorrow--- or maybe a 30 min with the long on Sunday. Will have to see how things shake out.

My knee has been a little wonky since my 7 miles on Sunday. Tonight will be my first run since then. I'll do intervals if I feel it at all. Dont want to hurt myself before my 10K on Sunday!
Ran over to Fleet Feet at lunch in my never ending quest for a headband that stays on my head. Decided to give "sweatybands" a try. Got a super cute one thats hot pink and black and has little martini glasses on it! Doesn't match any of my running tops but I guess that mean I need to buy some new ones.....Lets hope this one works and doesn't slip off of my head!

I can't find one that stays on my head either. I think its the shape of my head - I don't have a "ledge" at the back for it to stay under. One of my daughters has the same shape head as me and can't wear them either and the other one can. I'm a little jealous.

I can't wear them either. Lol. I have to run with a visor to keep my hair out of my face.

I'm all about the visor too. I put the matching headbands around my visor though if I want to look cute.

Yes ladies this is me too! Visors work for me and I guess thats what I'm going to stick too.
Though I will say the sweatyband stayed on for a 40 minute run/walk on the treadmill last night. Thats never happened before. I'll give it a few road tests next week and see if it stays on outside. For the race I'm definitely sticking with my visor though. In fact I think I'll pick up a new visor in DL on our vaction in a couple weeks.

Question for you all - does running on a treadmill ever get easier?
I dont do it often. Haven't done it in a few months. But I hate it. I have to run slower than I run on my outside runs, no clue why. I hold on with at least one hand for the majority of my run cause I get nervous. And the whole time I just feel awkward!

I know if I'm going to continue to run through the winter on week nights(and I am!) that I'm going to need to embrace the treadmill but I'm just not a fan.

I hate treadmill running but I do it on occasion. It seems like I'm working harder and going slower. There are no distractions either nor any change in pace, surface, foot strike or anything so I find it very difficult. But maybe I'm just a whiner! lol!
