Man, oh man, there is a raging fire tornado in Nike+’s pants right now. I trot off for my lovely little 3mile jaunt around the neighborhood (I can neither confirm nor deny that there was some air guitar action for Glee’s Total Eclipse of the Heart). I know this is three miles. How do I know? OK, I’m a dork so I mapped it out on Nike+’s MapIt feature and yes, I drove it in my car. 0I’m about a half mile from home when the show tunes end and some groovy mellow tunes come on and I check my Nike+ in my iPod. The lovely man’s voice tells me I’ve run 3.3 miles at a pace of 10 minutes and 23 seconds.
Are you insane??
First of all, a worm hole didn’t just open up and add an extra half mile onto my run. I am certainly not cool enough to have an Einstein theory proved on my running course. Second, I do not run that fast.
I re-calibrated my Nike+ yesterday because it was add about an extra quarter mile to my runs. That’s not so bad, but an extra half mile is a wee bit out of control. I’m going to have to do some research on what’s up with that. Any Nike+ users out there wanna clue me in, I’d love the support!
My fibbing Nike+ says I ran 3.77 miles in 41:09 at a pace of 10’54″ burning 527 calories.
