Improve your treadmill runs with Zwift
Updated: Dec 2, 2019
Disclaimer: I received a free Zwift RunPod as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro by going to https://www.bibrave.com/bibravepro. Find reviews for races of various distances at www.bibrave.com.
I had the opportunity to test the Zwift virtual reality (VR) app and its accompanying RunPod over the last couple of weeks; here is my video review for it.
In addition, below the video I have included a number of screenshots that show part of the process and experience using the Zwift VR environment. If you have any questions about this neat program, please don't hesitate to reach out to me on both Twitter and Instagram; my handle is @3dotjuan and I'd be glad to help you out.
This is the Zwift RunPod; it locks with and is held in place by the matching base you see below the laces on my running shoe.
It is recommended you use a computer or tablet to connect with the RunPod via Bluetooth, but you may also use a a mobile phone. However, you'll have the best overall experience using a computer or tablet since it will be easier to read the text and interface messages that appear in the program.
The program offers a good variety of course locations and options to choose from within each course.
Another neat aspect is the variety of running tips it flashes along the way to help you improve and stay focused.
Motivation messages are varied and plentiful as well:
