I treated myself to a shiny new Ipod touch a few weeks ago and decided to try Runkeeper on my plogging outings. Well, what a laugh!! Before the voice said '5 minutes' I had apparently already done more than 1k! Every couple of minutes I seemed to have run another 1,000 metres! Fortunately I also had Laura to keep me on the straight and narrow so just kept with the programme (I'm working my way back to 30 minutes running after a break).
When I got back to the car (I jog when waiting for my daughter to finish her ballet lesson) I checked my route on Runkeeper and it looked as though a small child had scribbled all over it! No wonder I had apparently done 12k in 30 minutes - the GPS was 'fair' so no wonder - it thought I was going back and forth all over the place. However, it was fun being told I was a complete whizz at running.
I've saved that 'fake' run - it makes me smile just thinking about it!
