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!

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…
#1 – Laura Stewart – 72.5km (7 runs) HOOOORAAAAY!
#2 – Hilary Billie Wilson – 68.1km (6 runs)
#3 – Sharon Tsang – 51.9km (6 runs)
#4 – Abby Ajayi – 42km (4 runs)
#5 – Leah Evans – 34.4km (5 runs)

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!?
