    Yeah that was fun Sean. Thanks for joining the event. Once we get Mobile Link supporting the run event filter (in December) I think we can get some good visibility of all the events coming up and get some bigger numbers to turn out.

    Good running with you guys! Created a segment https://www.strava.com/segments/16508929 and looks like 10 of us have registered with Jon just inching ahead! Think we "lost" one guy early on who got misdirected and we had at least one guy who came along to wave us off so to speak. I took some footage on a Virb which is a bit shaky but will upload to YouTube for posterity shortly. Slightly awkward moment when discovered my gym opens at 0830 on Saturdays and guess what time we started!

    So how does it work. Does everyone set there treadmills to the same pace for a group run or was this a race?

    Group run so the aim was to stick together although we had a little "sprint" in the last 500m. Pace was just over 12 kph for most of it or just under 8:00 min/mile pace. Worked well I thought as we did indeed stick together.

    Cool I really hope to get access to a treadmill soon and really want to do some Zwift running. Any suggestions on what foot pod to go with?

    I got the Milestone Pod, which works, but does not handle pace changes we’ll at all. Steady state runs work fine, but poor for intervals. (Or that last kick at the end of a group 5k when you crank up the treadmill to 20kph and it still has you as cruising at about 15 and everyone runs away from you on screen)

    Milestone for iOS, Garmin for PC/Mac or, if your budget stretches to it, a Stryd and then can use either protocol and it is for most people the best foot pod.

    Stryd is the pod to get if you care about the pace detection being accurate rather than just 'close'. We're trying to get a manufacturer to come up with a cheaper pod that has accurate pace without all the fancy other stuff stryd does, but it remains to be seen if Zwift can get that done this winter or not.

    I need to check that out. If that is the most accurate then that is what I will want. By the way Jon nice work on the TVOS App. Everything works great with it. The only issue I seem to have is getting my Apple Watch hr to work every time. It is hit and miss for me.

    I have used all the foot pods in general usage and the Stryd is by far the most accurate. It is not the most accurate solution which is probably what Jon uses - the Wahoo GymConnect that basically relays the treadmill speed to Zwift. Of course you have to then believe your treadmill is accurate. Actually that does allow a bit of a jump in game and noticed today Jon whacked up the speed in the final sprint and off he went. Could of course have just have been a good turn of speed LOL but foot pods do tend to show a bit of a lag in reflecting a new pace.

    PS interesting about a lower cost Stryd. These days I tend to see more people getting one as a good foot pod when of course the power meter side of it is meant to be the USP. Bit of sceptical of that TBH and with Garmin about to bring out essentially a free algorithm for running power it will be interesting to see how things develop.

    Sean I have the Milestone Pod as well and have seen similar results. I think I calibrated the pod at my average easy pace of about 10kph, and it seems when I run close to that speed (whether on treadmill or not), the accuracy is ok. But you're right, when I increase my speed for intervals, it is only partially detected by the pod.
