Challenge Runs

Recently the Nike+ Running app underwent an update...


They added Challenges! ...so rather than just comparing yourself on a day to day basis with friends, you could now set specific challenges with time limits! I'm pretty sure I remember them doing similar things in the past but they were always via a web app not actually through Nike+.

...the new update and my new running shoes were the perfect motivation / excuse to clock up some km's around my tight schedule! ...short and sweet I thought!

Oooooo and not forgetting my yurbuds! Check out the little write up I did on them :)

It seemed everyone was excited for a little competition in running! Immediately I got invited, and accepted 3 different challenges! I thought even if I didn't win I could make other people look good ;)

It's fab the little chat option they included! It's not exactly the most interactive chat system but it's great for a little bit of banter between each other! 

The week 2 standings for the Team Naturally, Run challenge looked like this... 

Drumroll....Week #2 standings on the Nike+ challenge run like so...

I'm not bottom (yet)...that's me #10... but I have some catching up to do! Leah set a great little goal for the week - to try to catch up with the person above you! I don't have too far to go, which is lucky with the busy week I have ahead but I will still aim a little higher! 

And look what arrived just in time...hopefully to help me run a little faster!

Are you the competitive type?! Liking the new Nike+ running update?!

What motivates you to get out and run, especially on those down days!?
