Is it ever going to happen? I remember the guys talking about it in the 2016-17 Podcast Range. Nate said then, that treadmill manufacturers wouldn’t allow control by 3rd partys and that was kind of the crux regarding the whole thing.
I happend to stumble upon TrainerRoad while rehabbing from a lifting injury. I was immediately hooked but never was able to dial my bike in a 100 %.
As I had no ambition to race, I gave up after changing a lot of parts and 2 bike fits and went back to lifting, running and soccer when a was fully rehabbed.
After moving to a different town I was left without a good place to run in my immediate surrounding. So I bought an assault air runner. As it is Bluetooth enabled, I paired it with Zwift and it was glorious
Obviously not as good as TR but near the same revelation as I had using TR for the first time on my bike with the NEO.
Before then (on the bike) I also started with Zwift but ended up preferring TR. As I probably would now for running, but sadly that is not an option.
Maybe you could revisit the possibility’s regarding a TR running? On BLE enabled curved treadmill it would be perfect.
But even for dumb treadmills there are now things like the RUNN, footpods like stryd or the GEM RETRO for CSAFE enabled treadmills.
I know for non curved treadmills you would still need to push the speed buttons, but as most running seems to be programmed along 80/20 running, the changes of pace per workout would be a lot less than in the bike plans.
I would encourage you to complete your Office CrossFit setup with an assault air runner and get somebody who is fond of running and just try it with Zwift.
Maybe you would get a taste for it and since Zwift is in really early stages it could be overtaken in short time.
Then again, I do not know how big the market is for something like TR running. I would subscribe
