In search of synchronized treadmill workout videos.

I just purchased a new treadmill (yay!). It does not have iFit or a similar feature that will sync Google maps street view to the program you are running, but I think I can go one better: are there any POV videos around for the purpose of viewing while on the treadmill that can match the speed and elevation of the program you are running?

I am thinking of hiking trails, mountain runs, anything with nice scenery that would add a holodeck element to my workout.

I could manually create the treadmill program if the video was accompanied with speed and elevation info...

Collage Video would be a good place to look.

That's a starting point, but I am really looking for something more tightly synced with the program you are running, to enhance the illusion of actually being there.

I'd suggest checking out some of these DVDs.

There's also the option of finding some of the older Ifit videos. They always announce on them when there is a change of pace or incline, so you can do that yourself manually and be in "sync."
