I drove down the road intending to do an outdoor run. But when I stepped out of the car and got hit by that icy blast, I quickly changed my mind. Back to the Prudhoe Bay Hotel, and the treadmill. This was my first time to use the Nike+ with GPS on the treadmill. I wondered how in the world it could actually track your distance accurately while on a treadmill. I found that it didn't do a very good job. But on the treadmill, I can keep track of my actual distance, then the Nike app asks to calibrate to the actual distance. So, it was accurate in the end. I only ran 4 miles, but ran faster than I have been lately. In some ways, the treadmill pushes me more than I am able to do outdoors. With the current weather conditions, I may use it a lot for the next couple of weeks until I go back home.
Snowing today - the first day of fall!
