Zwift But Not Swift

Tried Zwift on the treadmill today. It started life as a social turbo trainer app for cyclists and they've now added running. It was actually pretty good. Gave an incentive to keep treading the boards as the stats accumulated. Doesn't look to be many runners on it yet though but there were loads of virtual cyclists constantly firing past - which is a surprise seeing as how much it costs. If the monthly fee for running is as high I won't be continuing past the beta but if the price is right I'd give it a go as it really was pretty good for getting over the boredom that is the treadmill.

5k completed in a time not worth mentioning but Garmin's VO2max stats continue to edge up so I must be headed in the right direction...
