Ok, so week eight run one today. Was tipping down and lightening predicted, so thought it would be a good idea to stay inside. Have been having probs with the podcasts as headphones keep cutting out on runs ( my fault for buying reconditioned iPhone on eBay, but I am used to Mr IPad and love my cheap Tesco deal and needed smart phone for the podcasts ha! ) anyway, thought would be a good idea to play week eight on the iPad and compare the distance with the Fitbit. Did the 28 mins and, to be honest, was not noticeably more gremlinyidh than the 25 ones last week (2 out of three outdoors). However, big prob is that when I finished the 5min warm up and the 28 min run, the treadmill said 4.4 km and the Fitbit said 4.53. Appreciate that this is not a huge discrepancy, but I would like to keep an accurate record of my progression. As my Fitbit is a very basic one, once I start to record my run times only, as opposed to the warm up included, my options would seem to be: take out iPod, phone (for emergencies), glasses, as can't easily read Fitbit screen in bright light, pencil and paper in order to pause at end of warm up to record distance before setting off on run. All seems problematic so would appreciate advice. Am prepared to throw money at it as love this programme. Also prepared to accept that I may be being too neurotic too soon
