It has let me down, it has let me down so bad that soon after writing this blog post I am going to delete it from my phone! I have been using Nike+ Run Club ever since I started running and I thought a change of app would do me good, was I wrong or was I wrong? The plan was to try it out on my 3 runs this week. The first day went though but the following 2 days were a disaster!
There are 3 things that really put me off about this application.
- It did not record my distance. There I was running my heart out only to sync my run and realise that there was no record on distance and average pace. What the heck?The same thing happened today, what a let down.
- When I use Nike+ Run Club I can have a basic run or select the distance, duration or speed I want to run. Unfortunately Adidas does not have this option.
- I made sure my location was on and lo and behold, nothing showed at the end of my runs. I am really disappointed.
Now you see why people are resistant to change?
In other fitness related news, this morning I managed to do my morning workout in exactly one hour. When I started on Monday it was taking me a good 1 hour 15 minutes sometimes more. You see the benefits of rest day right there! I am doing a 6 week challenge which I compiled for myself and it is tough!
I was thinking of the progress I have made over the past 2 years and I am very proud of myself. Two years ago I struggled to do 10 sit ups but look at me now! You can read all about my fitness journey here. It has been a rocky road but every step of it has been and continues to be worth it.
I would like to know from those who are addicted to running; what is the running application that you have found to be very reliable? I have a challenge coming up in a week and I want to make sure I use something that doesn’t have a lot of glitches. The last Nike+ Run Club update has my runs disappearing into thin air and I can’t afford to have an experience like that during a challenge.
