SparkPeople NIKE RUNNING Team Messageboard Do you use Nike application to track? Want more friends to challenge on Chat about it here. This is the Sparkteam for you! Fuel band and ipod optional! SparkPeople NIKE RUNNING Team Messageboard Bringing the Team back to Life This used to be a very active team, but it seems to have gotten pretty quiet around here. What can we do to wake it up? Fri, 13 Mar 2015 17:04:42 EST Hello Hi my name is Kristi. I started running a little this summer. I am trying to stay motivated to keep going. I started using the Nike app a few weeks ago. I would love to have a few friends to keep me motivated. I have my first jogging 5K in a few weeks and I am going to walk/jog my first half marathon in Nov. 2015. My nike screen name is UOgirl4life. Sun, 7 Dec 2014 12:44:01 EST Nike+ Running App Hoping to get more friends on the Nike+ Running App. Screen name Chandra_Randall Thu, 4 Sep 2014 09:39:27 EST New to the team Hi, everybody. My name is Nancy, and I just joined this team. I have never been a runner, and I'm not very good at it at all, but I am motivated to make an effort to improve. Most of my friends either are or have recently become runners (and are good at it); my husband ran track in high school (and is very, very fit). I want to be like them! I've been doing the "fun" 5Ks (e.g., Color Run, Zombie Run) for the past few years, but I've never been able to run one all the way through. I want... Thu, 31 Jul 2014 08:05:57 EST June Hundred Me and some of my nike + distance buddies are setting up a hundred mile challenge for June. If you want in or you know anyone of your friends who do, let me know! Sun, 25 May 2014 19:23:43 EST Who's down for a May challenge? I know it's already over a week into the month, but if anyone wants me to set one up and add you, let me know!! Mon, 12 May 2014 14:31:13 EST Nike challenges Nike has luckily brought the challenges back - unfortunately just for iphone (the android app does not work properly - that's at least what I have been told) <BR> Do we have a team challenge there? Can we have one? <BR> <em>304</em> <em>312</em> Wed, 30 Apr 2014 02:11:25 EST Interested in the Nike+ FuelBand SE Hi! I just joined this team. I had a fitbit force that I had to return after the skin sensitivity/rash issues. Does anyone on this team have a FuelBand SE? How do you like it? So far that is my front runner in terms of what I'll replace my force with. I'd love to hear more about how users like it and any pros and cons. Is it compatible with any SP tools or food tracking? Thanks in advance for sharing any tips and experiences. Wed, 9 Apr 2014 17:30:24 EST February Chat Hello! Welcome new members! I'm sorry my leadership has slacked in January! I've been struggling with Michigan weather and down comes more snow and sleet today. Uggg. I know it's just an excuse not to get out there, but I need some motivation for you all. Any of you running in the snow? I usually run on my treadmill in the winter, but unfortunately, it has broke down. Hoping my husband can fix it, but we'll see. <BR> <BR> How is everyone doing?

Mon, 6 Jan 2014 16:50:59 EST Less of a runner, more of a racer So I haven't actually run on my own in several months simply because my schedule has been crazy (final year of grad school) but I do at least one race a month (5 in November, phew!). I'll use Nike+ for anything over a 5k. If you'd like to request me my name on there is Malia green. Looking forward to seeing you all on there! Thu, 5 Dec 2013 09:59:45 EST It's all about you!

I'll be running in February. My first goal is a marathon in May. I've run it every year for the last 7. My next goal is an ultra in July. I've run this particular ultra every year for the last 4. These two races are important to me. I know I'll be pushing it for the marathon in May, but, I think it's very manageable. So, I can support you all until February, then, I can run...

So far, I have found 3 Nike groups, fuel band (which I just took over because there was no leader), ipod, Nike + runners challenge (three leaders and I like this Team Name the best!). All these teams seem to be inactive. For those interested I'd like to close down a couple of teams and just make one Nike Runners Fan Team or something like that. Any suggestions and inpu...

I just recently tried to, pops up, but it doesn't register any of them. It still has me in a week of July 2012. I have contacted Nike Support, and I have gotten a few things to try, but nothing has worked so far. Just wondering if any one else has had this problem to see if there is something that will work!

Thu, 6 Dec 2012 22:01:34 EST Jumping Ship I didn't think this day would come, but I'm officially a Garmin girl now. I was sad that Nike+ took the challenges down (supposedly they will return some day...), because I really enjoyed running with all of you month after month! <BR> Last month, I ran a half marathon and borrowed a friend's Garmin, and I officially got addicted. I am now the proud owner of a watch, foot pod (for the treadmill and indoor track running), and heart rate monitor. <BR> I'm sad to leave you but ran out of ...

I am an older and sloooooow (very, very slow lol) runner/jogger/walker but I love the Nike+ app on my iPhone. I've tried all sorts of running apps but think this is the best one. <BR> <BR> Nice to see all of you here. Fri, 10 Aug 2012 23:40:07 EST Nike+ Fuel Band I know I don't need it but it looks so cool, I really want it. Does anyone own one that has something to say that will sway me in either direction? Sat, 7 Jul 2012 09:28:29 EST iTunes won't sync my iTunes stopped syncing yesterday .... I keep getting an error message that "the server has returned an unexpected response. Try again later." Apparently, it is a known problem and doing a restore like Nike suggests does not fix it .... it only deletes your runs unless you are savvy enough to save them off your iPod first. <BR> <BR> Nike's help desk suggestion is to hold off on syncing until "sometime next week, when we hope to have the problem resolved." They are pretty sure it has s... Thu, 5 Jul 2012 10:57:15 EST Android or iPhone? I know Nike+ has an app for Android now, but I am eligible for an upgrade on my phone and have planned to get an iPhone to use Nike+. Can anyone weigh in on how Nike+ works with either format? Thanks in advance. Mon, 25 Jun 2012 20:02:27 EST New Website and New App So the new website has been out for a week or so. Yeah! Kinda slick but i'm definitely missing the challenges and friends. Nike promises those features will be back shortly and i'm excited about it. Anyone have any thoughts on the new site? <BR> <BR> Also, the Nike+ GPS was updated last night. I went for a big run this morning to try it out and ran into a hiccup. On the old app you could hit the power button on the top of your phone/ipod to turn off the display screen and the app would...

One is House Music, the other I picked is Motion Traxx. Both podcasts have 30 min to hour and half long playlists. I download so many to my iPod, and they are pretty good. <BR> Most of them give the beats per minute, from walking beats to running, intervals, couch to 5k, etc etc. <BR> SO MANY to choose from.

I used to HATE running or most any exercise for that matter, but I have seen the light! I am running my first 5K this Thanksgiving and decided to get myself an iPod Nano instead of investing in both an mp3 player and running watch. I am so happy I did!

I have been using it for a year and a half now (with a couple of sensors), and while there have been minor issues getting it calibrated right and it occasionally losing workouts or quitting in the middle of a long run, it's worked relatively well. Recently, however, it is not recording anything correctly. I've tried getting a new sensor, resetting my iPod, recalibrating--no go, nothing seems to resolve it. When I try recalibrating, it tells me I... Mon, 31 Oct 2011 12:08:06 EST Join my Holiday Exercise Streak Challenge!

I've done several 5K's and a couple of 10K's. I'm hoping to run the St. Pete Women's Half Marathon in November. I love the Nike+ website and use the iPhone app with every run.

I have been doing the Couch to 5K program and it has helped me track my improvement. <BR> <BR> In about a week's time I will be doing my first official 5K race. I was just wondering if anyone has actually used their Nike + iPod for a race?

I decided to join after getting the nike+ app on my phone. I have and iPhone 4 so it has the GPS in it as well. So far I LOVE this! I have already beat my personal best 5k record and I'm pretty sure it was because of the pace tracking and the kilometer indications. Hearing these milestones really helps me push that little bit more. I'm no superstar by any means, but running a 5k in 35 or so minutes was so exhilerating to me. (3 minutes faster than last years best) Now I can't wa... Sun, 15 May 2011 09:40:54 EST Anyone Tried the New Nike+ GPS Watch? I'm interested but I don't know that it would be worth $200 for a device that only tracks mileage and maps routes. Any input would be appreciated. <BR> <BR> Thank! Fri, 13 May 2011 18:14:55 EST Anyone else use ipod touch? Hello, <BR> <BR> I have an ipod touch and apparently it doesn't have a hold button unless I'm just blind :) But I was wondering if anyone else does and if you do if you have the problem where the stop workout button is bumped and you have to start over. I find this very annoying and I wish there was either a "hold" button or a resume workout. Ex: I set it for 2 miles and then bump the button 1 mile in.

Sat, 30 Apr 2011 16:57:47 EST Nike+ GPS Tag Group Hi Everyone! <BR> <BR> There have been a few of us looking to try the Tag feature our on the Nike+ GPS app. Let us know if you want to join in or send me a friend request on the Nike+ site. My username is the same as it is here, Jeepin04. <BR> <BR> It looks like you can start and join tag matches based on most miles or most time run. The person with the least distance or time would be it. Still learning about the feature and can post updates as we learn more. <BR> <BR> According to the ... Wed, 27 Apr 2011 19:14:48 EST Nike + male vs female challenge Hey ladies! <BR> <BR> Those of you who are on Nike plus just wanted to let you know I joined the male vs. female challenge and we NEED MORE LADIES!!! Just letting you know! I might start a challenge in May. <BR> <BR> Wed, 27 Apr 2011 16:25:54 EST Loooove Nike Training Club I've had my ipod for over a year but got bored and put it away. Basically I wasn't staying ontop of apps and music downloads($$$). So the other day I updated and found this free app and it is amazing! I'm on my 3rd day and am super excited for the next 27 days. The workouts are all different and I don't think I could possibly get bored! <BR> <BR> I've been a spark member for some time now. The year I joined I was 180+. Last year I saw 150 but am currently at 154. Hopefully I'll finall... Wed, 27 Apr 2011 00:00:04 EST How to change songs? What is the best solution to changing songs during a run? I really dislike how you have to pause your workout, go out the the song selection menu and then hit another but to resume your workout again. <BR> <BR> I know you can buy a amp+ watch that will attach to your wrist but it has bad reviews. Anyone had any experience with it? <BR> <BR> Also, has anyone tried buying Apples remote to see if it will switch songs for you without having to pause your workout? Tue, 19 Apr 2011 16:03:09 EST Got the tech Hey everyone, I just bought into the technology that's required to be a part of this team so I thought I'd join up and say hello. Anything I should know before my first run? Any shortcomings on the technology? <BR> <BR> Edit: Thought I'd add my Nike+ username in case anyone wants to play "tag" with the gps app or just add as a friend. It's the same as in sparkpeople - WarmBadger <BR> <BR> Sun, 17 Apr 2011 15:30:42 EST Crazy Walker Well it was a beautiful morning so I hitched up the dog and off we went. Five miles later and all is well. Seven miles and I am beginning to wonder about the wisdom of this whole thing but I am too far away from home so I have no choice but to continue. After 10 miles we are finally back home. <BR> <BR> I am sure that my dog thinks that I am crazy and he is probably right. As a side note I didn't know a dog could pee so many times in ten miles. Gosh I think he hit every tree along the ... Sun, 10 Apr 2011 15:10:05 EST Just Joined Morning! I just found this team. I've been running with my iPhone and the Nike+ app for the past month or so. I've found it really motivates me. Love running with the music. I've certainly been out there much more than I have been. I also noticed that it totally broke my weight plateau!! I might hop in with the April challenge if y'all don't mind. <BR> <BR> Meghan Sat, 9 Apr 2011 10:35:57 EST I challenge you to a 5k! <link><BR>/nikeplus/en_US/plus/#//challenges/det<BR>ail/1235627739/ </link> <BR> <BR> My new 5k challenge :) Feel free to run against me!

I'm BuckeyeGirl1215 on Nike+ Fri, 8 Apr 2011 13:54:34 EST Does your Ipod motivate you? I definitely feel like being able to track everything that nike+ lets you do motivates me to want to keep going week after week. I also like to switch up my playlists so my runs don't get predictable, and I've noticed listening to classical and jazz music makes for a very relaxing run and it lets me focus on my pace much more! <BR> <BR> Have you ever gone running without the nike+ merchandise and do you think it's more fun now that you have it? Thu, 7 Apr 2011 10:07:04 EST Plantars Fasciitis... What a PAIN ! I am really sick and tired of this persistent attack upon the left heel of my foot. I jogged 2.5 miles Saturday then walked 2.5 miles. On Sunday I walked 5 miles. All was ok until I went to get out of bed Monday morning. When I went to stand up the pain in my left heel was excruciating. I have been limping around since. <BR> <BR> Last summer I was walking 5 to 10 miles per day. Somewhere along my journey this pain hit and has been with me since. Some days have been better than others ...

I finally started to run more often and eat better over the last year. (I actually finished my first 15K road race last summer too, just don't ask what my time was...) I hope to keep the momentum going this year and think this team is the motivator I was looking for. I've just started to use the Nike+ GPS and sparkpeople apps on the iPhone th...

Hi there! My name is Stephanie and I'm 23 and happily married with no children yet. I've been a member of SP for about a year and a half now. I plateau a lot, but I've managed to lose about 30 pounds and keep it off. That's almost halfway to my "soft" weight loss goal (I'd maybe like to go a little further, but I know where I'd at least be happy at). <BR> <BR> Recently (as in the last week or so recently) I've been really throwing myself into my running program and strength training workout...

The first time I used it, I stuck it inside my non-nike shoe, I got a result of 3.13 miles in 30 minutes. However, the treadmill said I had walked 1.78 miles in that same half hr. I know I do not walk a 10 min mile so I stopped using it. I just got the little pouch that goes on my laces. I haven't had a chance to use it yet but hoping that it is more accurate. <BR> <BR> Any sugges... Thu, 10 Feb 2011 20:11:16 EST Looks Like I'm the 500th Member! Hi everyone! <BR> <BR> My name is Steph and I started running last year after becoming intrigued with the Nike+ app on my (then) new iPod. I ended up with horrible shin splints and quickly became disenchanted with running altogether. It was my own fault. I tried to do too much too soon. <BR> <BR> Well, I'm back and committed. I started running again in mid-January and have, thus far, avoided the nasty shin splints. I was actually able to run my very first 10K last week! I have a goal ...

I worked my way up to about 3 miles/day. I was 20lbs. heavier as well. As soon as the weather got hot I quit running. I couldn't afford a gym membership. I have regretted quitting ever since. So, now it's winter. There's snow and ice on the streets. But I want to pick it up again. I can do a mile without stopping. Any suggestions? I'm thinking of maybe heading over to the mall parking lot. I... Wed, 12 Jan 2011 11:45:36 EST is my foot bod running out of juice? I'm thinking that my foot pod is running out of charge... seems that only a third to maybe half of my steps are being recorded! I went for a 3 mile run (measured via my car, mapmyrun, and my garmin gps watch), and my nike+ only recorded 1.5 Then... it wouldn't let me adjust the measured distance at all! <BR> <BR> Ick!

Sun, 28 Nov 2010 15:38:42 EST Who would have thunked it? Well this is new. I have always joked and said if you saw me running look a few yards behind me....something is chasing me. Yesterday I decided to start a 12 week running trial. I had gone to a running store here in ABQ and had myself taped on a treadmill to make sure I was getting the correct shoe to train in. I loved it. I got a pair of Nikes and since I have an iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad, decided to get the Nike+ Sensor. I was just going to use it for walking at the beach. That was three... Thu, 18 Nov 2010 15:11:35 EST Sensor calibration, one more time I am about at the end of my tether with this stupid thing. I have tried to get it calibrate it a couple times. Today I did 2 miles on a high school track (8 laps in the lane 2, there were benches in lane 1), and it was wildly off, it said 1.79 miles. <BR> <BR> I am going to give it one more chance. I will do one mile on the track at a steady pace, and if it won't calibrate to a mile I am going to take a hammer to it!!!!!!!!!!!!! <BR> <BR> Any other trips before I visit violence on it? Sat, 13 Nov 2010 18:46:00 EST Daily Mile website A friend just turned me on to It is really cool, because you can sync your Nike+ runs automatically, and it provides a great graph of your distance and time. I was able to upload 3 years worth of data in a really short time! <BR> Does anyone already belong? I'd love to buddy up there, too! You can also sync it with your Facebook profile if you are not a private person <em>2</em> . I don't think I'm quite ready to share that much information...yet!

Fri, 29 Oct 2010 00:54:58 EST How to set the nike+ to give me run/walk cues Ok. I can run a half marathon, using a run/walk system. I'd like to be able to get myself to running a longer time without a single walk break. <BR> <BR> I'd love to set up my nike+ to tell me when to walk and run.

When I play music while walking with the pedometer on, it does not log any distance. Luckily I know how far my walk at work is so I can account for the distance in my fitness tracker, but I will not get credit on the NikeActive web app. <BR> <BR> Anyone else having this issue or is it just me? Tue, 12 Oct 2010 13:58:59 EST Just thinking ahead.... 2011 Miles Challenges?! I know it's still early, but as I was jogging this morning, I started thinking about my goals for next year. This year I am on track to reach my goal of 520 miles (10 miles/week). I took a few months off, so I have had some catching up to do, but I should make it with a few miles to spare. <BR> <BR> Next year, I would like to strive for 20 miles/week (around 1000 miles), and I would love to create a challenge so that those of us who want to run close to 20 miles/week could encourage each o...

I just moved from Hawaii to California and I'm trying to get adjusted here. I want to start running again but I will have to start walking first. I know, I can push myself to run but I want to enjoy my process. Hopefully here I can find support. <BR> <BR> Thanks Fri, 24 Sep 2010 10:36:51 EST Newbie learning how 2 walk before she starts 2 run Good morning, <BR> <BR> I just bought the sensor yesterday, and am already excited about the possibilities. I cannot wait until I'm able to start running with this, but for now, the motivation for my morning walks to work have just been kicked up another notch by using this. <BR> <BR> My screen name on Nike is the same as it is on here. Fri, 24 Sep 2010 09:27:55 EST Created my first challenge - for beginners I love the challenges on Nike+ but sometimes find them overwhelming since I am returning runner, not even running a whole mile yet. So I created a challenge for new/returning runners, runners that aren't running more than 10 miles a week. Hoping for some level competition!! <BR> <BR> <link><BR>us/en_US/plus/#//challenges/detail/181<BR>7942596/ </link> Thu, 23 Sep 2010 15:16:01 EST New to Nike-Ipod and running! Hi, <BR> <BR> I just got the Nike app and sensor and Nike shoes and have started running. I would love to meet some other runners and newbies as well. <BR> <BR> Please add me and invite me to any challenges. Also anyone who is looking for a buddy, let me know! Tue, 21 Sep 2010 17:51:59 EST Hello all! I'm new to this group, but been using my nike+ for some time.... when I used to run that is. <BR> <BR> Just getting back into the running after a long break. <BR> <BR> Please add me as a friend at the Nike+ site "Linnea-Mae" <BR> <BR> Talk to you all soon! Tue, 21 Sep 2010 12:53:39 EST My app failed me today :( So dissappointed. Second run since back on the nike+ site and nothing to show for it, publicly that is. Wish I could manually load the run. <BR> <BR> I'm using the iphone app and tried the "challenge last run" option. It seems like a great tool for me since I am wanting to increase my runs by tiny distances each run. (I'm talking from .58 mile to .62 mile!! ha ha) <BR> <BR> Hopefully tomorrow will be better. Tue, 21 Sep 2010 12:38:13 EST Re-New I don't actually fit in the new category as I was once a member of this team. I left when my sensor died and I really couldn't justify buying a new one. Today I spent $1.99 on the new Iphone app for my 1st gen. I'm VERY excited about getting back to using the nike+ app and site. I was much more motivated to walk/run when I had it before!!! <BR> <BR> Hope to get know y'all!!

Mon, 9 Aug 2010 19:26:25 EST Hello! :) I love my Nike+Ipod! :) I'm not the best runner in the world but I try. I had some issues with shinsplints not that long ago, and it made things difficult.

Hi. <BR> On Nike + I go by Lalaflowers, just like here. <BR> <BR> I've been playing with the pedometer setting on my IPOD, and playing the milage game by just walking. It's a nice new motivator. I need to get a race for me to 'train' for. Not a crazy long one.. but a 5 or 10k.. that doesn't have a huge entry fee attached to it. <BR> <BR> I'm excited to be able to better track my running. And to increase my running time. I've completed a half, so I've got endurance, but at a run / walk ... Thu, 22 Jul 2010 20:29:47 EST New to the team Hi everyone, <BR> <BR> My name is Danyelle. I have been using the Nike + Ipod for about a month now. The sensor is actually a loaner, so I will be needing to get my own soon. <BR> <BR> I really love how it works and when I saw this team I knew I needed to join. Thu, 22 Jul 2010 09:48:17 EST What do you think about? Hello.I can't stop thinking about how much longer I have to go when I'm running. I hate that I can't think about something else. I know my time would fly by if I did. Does anyone have any advice? Thanks!! Wed, 21 Jul 2010 08:59:22 EST Hi Everyone! I'm Amber, I'm new to the team. I've been on SP for almost a year now and I've been on Nike+ system of about the same. I just was browsing for some new groups with different motivation and found this one!! So excited to be part of the group and make some new Nike+ running buddies!! I've been running for a little over a year and currently run about 10 miles a week, if the time permits! In the last year I've lost about 50 lbs, with about 35 more to go!! My Nike screen name is pleasantal. Good L... Mon, 19 Jul 2010 19:28:52 EST Help with sensor and/or ipod 3 miles into my run today, the mileage didn't move and the pace showed all zeroes, but the time kept calculating. I tried cutting the sensor on and off but then the ipod kept saying walk around for sensor but never activated it. <BR> <BR> Do you think I need another sensor this soon? It's only been 6 months and I've used it for about 330 miles so far. <BR> <BR> I havent checked the forums on nike + yet, but I'm headed there now; figured I'd check with you all first. Thanks! Tue, 13 Jul 2010 16:35:30 EST On choosing shoes I hope this is an appropriate place to ask this question. I am a fairly new walker/runner, and the shoes I am currently using are just a pair of Adidas cross-trainers I picked up at J.C. Penney's for about $45 when I first began walking about 2 months ago. I've been researching and reading about shoes the last few days, especially after buying my Nike+ last week (bought the shoelace adapter pouch, not the Nike+ shoes), and I could use some good shoe wisdom, namely your favorite brands and mod... Sat, 10 Jul 2010 22:12:49 EST Hello, I'm new to the group Hi, my name is Kathy, I'm a wife and mother to 3 children, and I'm a nike+ fan! I've been on Spark for awhile now and just happened to think...hey there might be a Nike+ here I am. I'm looking forward to joining challenges and getting some miles in this month! Thanks for having me! <BR> Kathy Fri, 9 Jul 2010 04:31:24 EST Sensor? I tried to start my ipod for my run yesterday and it could not find the sensor. Does that mean that it is done? When I get a new sensor will it link like the old one or do I have to recalibrate and everything? Tue, 6 Jul 2010 09:36:14 EST Troubles with peroneal tendon? Anyone ever have troubles with their peroneal tendon? Last year I injured it pretty bad, now it flares up every once in a while. I know I need to get better and where my brace when running, but does anyone know of some good stretches for this particular part of the foot? Mon, 5 Jul 2010 12:04:31 EST I created a July challenge... if your birthday is in July (or not! whatever, lol) I started a challenge titled "Crabby Cancer Challenge". I don't know how to get the link directly to it but it's public if anyone's interested <em>331</em> Fri, 2 Jul 2010 15:24:22 EST July's Challenge is Open! I will be at the beach <em>218</em> when the challenge starts, so feel free to join now and be ready to "Run-ble"! <BR> <BR> <link><BR>us/en_US/plus/#//challenges/detail/677<BR>956480/ </link> Wed, 23 Jun 2010 21:35:51 EST Hiya Hello, joined this team about two weeks ago. Went on vacation though, so just now getting around to introducing myself. I love spark and I LOVE my nike+. I get so excited each time I get to plug it in. I am a single mom of a wonderful ten year old boy, he is my life. I work full time at eBay and am in school full time for nursing. All and all pretty busy, but getting back in shape is an extremely important part of my life and I can't wait to run my first 5k in a few months. I never woul... Mon, 21 Jun 2010 16:00:50 EST I've lost a week of challenge reporting I misplace my receiver every day when I go to plug my iPod to my laptop. But this time, though, it has been a week. I feel so lost without it. It was my greatest source of motivation. I have looked everywhere for it. Now I'll have to get another sport kit. I wouldn't mind so much but I just brought a new pair of running shoes last week. I already had an extra sensor because I brought it single initially thinking it would work with my iPhone 3G. Then I found it only works with the 3GS so I had... Fri, 11 Jun 2010 16:41:32 EST My sad mini ;-( I hardly ever go a few days without a run so my mini is always jumping hurdles and dancing. Yesterday I get on my laptop and my mini screensaver comes on....too funny! I haven't ran in like 5 days and she's walking and talking smack, "I sure would like a run but my hands are tied" <em>246</em> <BR> <BR> I thought it was the funniest thing, and I remember someone here telling me that would happen if I slacked a bit. <BR> <BR> Needless to say, I got up and ran this morning to keep mini happ... Thu, 10 Jun 2010 15:40:16 EST What is your favorite part of a run? This morning I went running outside at daybreak for the first time since September. As I approached mile 2 of my neighborhood loop, I head west and get an awesome view of the Colorado Rockies with the reddish orange sky behind me lighting them up and making them purple. I sometimes wish I had a camera for the beautiful skyscapes that I experience on my morning runs. It got me to thinking, what do other people enjoy about their run? Thu, 3 Jun 2010 14:10:10 EST June Summer Lovin' Challenge is Open for Business! If no one objects, I'll just keep them's a lot easier, and so far we haven't had problems with anyone crashing and running up the mileage. In fact, we've gained a few members who saw us there! If you do notice anybody taking advantage, I can always remove them.... <BR> <BR> Happy Running! Mon, 31 May 2010 21:00:30 EST I started a June group challenge <link><BR>us/en_US/plus/#//challenges/detail/544<BR>107126/ </link> <BR> <BR> It's a challenge for June and everyone is welcome to join! :) Sun, 30 May 2010 17:08:50 EST Hello were you hiding this team? Hi My name is Monique <BR> <BR> I am new to the team but not to Spark. I have been sparking for two years now. <BR> <BR> I am a big fan of Nike+ Ipod. I had mine for over a year now and it is my best friend. I am not really an active runner like I should be because I only run on the weekend,but I will get there if it kills me. I am also active on the Nike+ website keeping track of my progress and I did pretty well but would like to get better. See you around the board. Fri, 28 May 2010 09:23:34 EST My Challenge I have an ongoing challenge: <BR> <BR> <link><BR>us/en_US/plus/#//challenges/detail/101<BR>4995477/ </link> <BR> <BR> It's 2010 miles in 2010. I messed up when I started it and set it at 50 miles, so we all had to restart. Anyone is welcome. Don't feel like you have to run 2010 miles! Many of us will not. It's just fun to run all year with the same people. <BR> <BR> I then set up a monthly challenge with groups every month. Again anyone is welcome! ... Thu, 27 May 2010 14:30:12 EST Hi!!!!! I must have missed this team. :( I run with Nike+. I found another team and was wondering why I missed the challenges I came across in Nike+. Now I know! I saw some long distance runners on nike+ that are on this team and want to join in the fun! My nike+ name is Luv-2-run also. :) <BR> <BR> Looking forward to challenges! They keep me going. I love that it's a solo sport and yet there are others out there, running with me. <BR> Thu, 27 May 2010 14:20:21 EST NIke+ Heart Rate Monitor - Available June 1 Good News! <BR> <BR> Clover at the Nike+ Forums confirmed they are finally launching the Nike+ Heart Rate Monitor June 1st. <BR> <BR> Now keeping fingers crossed it will be compatible with my current iPod! <BR> <BR> <link><BR>=30444 </link> <BR> <BR> <link><BR>nike-heart-rate-monitor-due-for-launch<BR>-june-1st/ </link> Mon, 24 May 2010 08:35:48 EST Reconnecting to an old love When I was younger I LOVED to run. However I took a fall with a horse my freshman year of high school and running became too painful to enjoy. More recently I gained a large amount of weight and became less and less mobile. September 21, 2009 I started a diet program and have lost 55 pounds to date. I am smaller than I was in high school even. Due to the rapid weight loss I had to have my gallbladder removed on May 7th, and to allow for adequate recovery I am not allowed to do my usual aerobi... Tue, 18 May 2010 20:58:42 EST Aloha! Hi, I am Sherry from Kona, HI. I am so glad to have found this group through Nike Running when searching for challenges. I have signed up for my first 5K in June at the Kona Marathon and am currently working my way through the C25K training program. I just got the Nike + sensor last night and am looking forward to breaking free from the treadmill! There are so many great places to run here that I am excited to take my running outdoors again. Fri, 7 May 2010 14:35:33 EST New to team and I love my Nike+ Ipod I'm Paula from Central, Florida. I started my C25K program a few months back. When I came home with my new running shoes I realized they were Nike+. Unfortunately my 1st generation iphone didn't work so I purchased an Ipod nano and the sensor. I'm up to the 20,000 step challenge on the Nike website. Hope to learn from and contribute to this team a lot. <BR> <BR> I did my first 20 minute run this morning! Paula Mon, 3 May 2010 07:30:05 EST May Running/Walking Events What events do you have planned for May? I know a lot of people are planning to Race for the your upcoming events and results here! <BR> <BR> I have a 5K on Memorial Day. Sun, 2 May 2010 06:21:06 EST Sparkpeople Merry Month of May Challenge is posted! You will need to search for it and join. The challenge will be public for one week...if you join after that time, Sparkmail me and I'll invite you. I'll remove those who don't belong to our group. <BR> Let me know if you have any trouble finding it! Happy trails! Sun, 2 May 2010 06:19:35 EST New to the team, running, and Nike+! Hello all! I'm starting the C25k program this weekend, and decided to gear up with a Nike+ sensor to go with my iPod! So excited to start running and try it out! Fri, 30 Apr 2010 17:56:14 EST When did you realize that you loved running? I am working through the walk to run coaching program on the Nike+ website. Its week 2 and I am NOT loving the running portion of my workouts. I am doubting whether I am a runner at heart, but then I wonder if maybe it just takes some time or a milestone before the dread turns into something less awful and then turns to like and love? Thu, 15 Apr 2010 23:04:44 EST How many Pairs? Here is a question: <BR> How many pairs of running shoes do YOU own? Why? If you have more than one, why do you pick one pair over another on a given day? <BR> <BR> <em>331</em> Wed, 14 Apr 2010 08:36:04 EST I love my Ipod/Nike Combo!! Hi, my name is Serina and I'm new to this group and to SparkPeople. I love running! I get a high from it. I joined this team for some motivation! Sun, 11 Apr 2010 19:17:25 EST New to running and the team :) Hi everyone I'm Natasha, I started the Nike+ walk/run programme two weeks ago. <BR> <BR> Before two weeks ago I had never run before and now I have clocked up 25.8Km thanks to my fancy little Nike+ sensor and trainers giving me the motivation I needed to get my ass into gear :) <BR> I am really enjoying getting into running, and am really glad there is a group on Spark people for Nike+ <BR> <BR> My Nike+ profile feel free to add me <BR> <BR> <em>244</em> Sat, 10 Apr 2010 17:44:19 EST Just found this team! Hi everyone, there are few things in life I love more than my Nike+ sensor and my iPod. Ok that might be an exaggeration but really I love it! Anyway I'm Leah, glad to be a part of the team :) Tue, 6 Apr 2010 23:17:40 EST New to Nike+ and looking for an answer? Hi, my name is Dani, and I'm new to Sparkpeople as well as to this group. I got my Nike+ a month or so ago, when I got my new Nano, and I have a question: I know that you can do 2 separate calibrations for the Nike+, walking and running, but I'm wondering if the sensor picks up on the differences if you do both in the same workout? For example, I'm doing Couch to 5K, which has running intervals mixed with walking intervals. So far I only use the Nike+ when I'm walking because I just can't ru...

I am not new to Nike+ though, I've had mine since Dec 2007, I actually switched to the Garmin 305, then just recently switched back to the Nike+. <BR> <BR> I am 34 and married with 3 boys (15, 5, & 18 months), I live in Harleysville,PA. I am a walk/runner, hoping to run more and complete a half marathon sometime in the not to distant future. Right now I ave about 10 to 12 miles per week, I would like to increase that so ... Wed, 31 Mar 2010 08:25:32 EST back at it Hello again - its been WAY too long since I was dedicated to my health but I am back on the wagon now. I just finished my first month back on SP and reached my goal of 5 pounds lost ... mostly thanks to tracking my food and using my Nike+. <BR> <BR> Are there any monthly goals or challenges for our team? I am not a runner (yet), but I do try to walk at least 5 times a week for 30 minutes. So far I am up to about 2 miles a day in that time. I am thinking of starting a running program, but... Mon, 29 Mar 2010 20:51:26 EST NIKE and IPOD? I'm in heaven! Happy to be here! This is so cool. I am a total Nike and ipod person. Actually I run to tunes on my iphone, but same difference. I can wait to meet you all! Fri, 26 Mar 2010 20:11:32 EST 10K training with Nike+ Hello Everyone! I am finishing up week 6 of the 10K training program. Is anyone else doing this? I've loved the challenge and can't believe how I have been able to increase my mileage, although the jumps seem to be a bit bigger than recommended (one mile at a time, vs. 10% of your max). <BR> <BR> I'd love to compare notes if others are using the 10K or any of the training programs. <BR> <BR> -Amy Fri, 19 Mar 2010 09:57:45 EST Manually add a run to nike+? Does anyone know if you can manually add a run to the Nike+ website? I ran this morning but I didn't have my ipod with me and I want the run to count towards my goals/challenges. I looked on the site and I don't think you can but thought I'd ask you guys. Sun, 7 Mar 2010 13:55:43 EST What do you record in Nike +? I got my Nike + system in December for Xmas. I have been using the site to only record my running miles, not my walking miles. Do you record both running and walking or just one or the other? Fri, 5 Mar 2010 07:56:30 EST Congratulations February Challenge winners! 1st Place <em>208</em> : Kathianne 130.97 miles <BR> 2nd Place <em>264</em> : GlennGlenn 125.97 miles <BR> 3rd Place <em>109</em> : Uhura 82.67 miles <BR> <BR> We had our largest turnout yet: 29 participants! <BR> <BR> Way to go, Team! <em>250</em> Thu, 4 Mar 2010 20:15:29 EST Yet another great way to use your Nike+ I just bought a new pair of runners yesterday & was thinking there has to be a way to track my mileage on them to see when they're getting close to needing replacement, besides watching them slowly ware down. <BR> <BR> I set up a private 500-mile distance challenge, so all my walks & runs will automatically be logged. It won't log the "incidental," everyday usage, of course, but my serious mileage will be there. <BR> <BR> I &#9829; Nike+! Thu, 4 Mar 2010 17:39:53 EST March Goals Would anyone else care to join me in setting some March goals and helping keep each other motivated? <BR> <BR> I planned my workouts for the month today, and I've scheduled 58 miles of jogging and 1200 total exercise minutes. I will update each week's total here on Sundays. I also set a goal to run 5 runs in under 11:35. Last month I set a goal of running 5 runs in under 11:40, and I need to complete one more of those before I move on. I love Nike+! If you haven't checked out the Goal S... Sun, 28 Feb 2010 10:58:52 EST March Madness Invitations Are in the Mail! If you don't get yours, shoot me a Sparkmail! We'll give the February Challengers time to upload through next Wednesday and announce the winners. Can you do better in March?! We get an extra 3 days, so no excuses!!! <em>57</em> <em>312</em> <em>311</em> <em>313</em> All levels are welcome!!! Sat, 27 Feb 2010 15:19:19 EST Had the Nike+ for years and yet..... So my husband bought me the ipod nano for Valentine's day (3 yrs ago) and we went out the next week and bought the sensor, shoes and running shoes. I started the C25K on Feb 20, 2007. And it lasted for ~ 3 weeks. Then it got hot and I quit. I restarted this past Sunday. I have completed 2 runs. This time, I am able to run each time trial and feel better about it. I am (because I am completing each 60 second run) running fast than last time too. Now here is hoping it isn't raining tomor... Thu, 25 Feb 2010 02:17:43 EST New to Spark, Nike+, & Walking (for exercise) Hello All! <BR> <BR> I'm new, as you could already probably tell! I just bought the Nike+ Sensor for my iPhone... I can't afford the shoes or the little pouch thingy, but I did get a nice, cheap pair of walking/running shoes for $25!!! I just tuck my sensor under the laces at the bottom of the tongue, it has a lace loop in the center of tongue/toe area that keeps it from sliding out the bottom! Anyway, I'm not too good at describing myself so all I'll suggest is that you check out my SparkPa... Tue, 16 Feb 2010 01:18:29 EST Mini What is the mini about? All I see on the site is it's for motivation but what does it do? Thu, 11 Feb 2010 00:41:39 EST Can I get an Invite? I am new here,but over there I have 2 L's! It's ArtemisKalli. <BR> <BR> Thanks! Wed, 10 Feb 2010 20:43:07 EST I think I must be backwards ; ) I just joined SparkPeople, but I have been into Nike+ for ages. I think I was an original there, I started over 3 years ago and have been through 2 entirely new "dashboards". I was doing WW but it just wasn't motivating enough. I am a Blue Level there with 1228.63 miles logged. <BR> <BR> I can run like a demon is on my tail, but if I don't count calories, I gain weight. Generally I am a trail runner, only run on asphalt or concrete if its been raining too much to hit the dirt. I did a p... Wed, 10 Feb 2010 20:29:35 EST Hello! Just Bought Nike+! I just bought a Nike+ thanks to Nancy-Girl. I bought the Sportband version because I am anti-apple and refuse to own an i-pod. I can't wait to get it in the mail. It is meant to be my end of March "prize" to myself but I will be using it as soon as I get it. I will be using it for walking until spring because at 286 lbs and icy sidewalks make running not ideal. My brother and I will be trying C25K in the spring and will start running then. I think it will be a huge motivator to get me walking... Wed, 10 Feb 2010 19:28:15 EST Nike+ vs Treadmill So the treadmill at the gym says I ran 2 miles yet my Nike+ tells me I ran 2.24miles!! I have calibrated the Nike+ and I am just very confused!! Does anyone else have this problem?? Which one is accurate? <BR> <BR> <em>234</em> Wed, 10 Feb 2010 15:28:51 EST We ROCK! There are 175 teams listed under "walking teams," and we are currently #23 for fitness minutes this month! <BR> <BR> There are 67 running teams, and we are #18. <BR> <BR> We are relatively small compared to some groups, which makes it all the more impressive! <BR> <BR> <em>244</em> <em>185</em> Wed, 10 Feb 2010 07:32:37 EST Manually enter data? Hey everyone! Just wondering if anyone knows if lets you manually enter runs into your profile. I forgot my iPod in my desk drawer at work today, but did my 3.2 mile run on the treadmill anyway. I'd really like to enter data, but not sure if nikerunning gives you that option. Anyone know? <BR> <BR> Thanks for any ideas! :) Tue, 9 Feb 2010 21:46:49 EST problems with nike+ I'm having some issues with my nike+ and its driving me crazy. I noticed my pace was faster than a friends, and she runs faster than I do, so I knew something was up. I calibrated it one day (my pace was off by about a minute). The next day I went to run on the track and it was off again! I've only had this for a few months, with not that many miles on it. I had no problems with it, until one day I took out the thing that is on the shoe. I put it back in a few days later for a run and that wa... Tue, 9 Feb 2010 11:02:38 EST New Headphone Recs? I've been using earbud-style headphones for a while now, but they've been annoying me lately. Especially since I lost one of the rubber covers, and now that one won't stay in my ear! <BR> <BR> So, I'm looking for a recommendation for a good set of headphones for my iPod Touch. I need headphones that will actually stay in/on my ears as I run! Tue, 9 Feb 2010 00:56:46 EST Cross-training What do you do besides run/walk? Lately I've been trying to increase my endurance, so I haven't done a lot of other activity. I did get Denise's Daily Dozen DVD, which has different 12-min exercises for each day of the week. I skip the Mon, Wed and Fri cardio sessions, but I like the Tues lower body/abs, Thurs upper body/abs and the weekend yoga (great for runners...lots of hip/thigh stretches). I also recently discovered Zumba, which I take with two friends on Saturday. I'm planning to ... Sun, 7 Feb 2010 10:49:08 EST Whatcha eating? I exercise before I go to work, so I usually don't eat anything before I run, but afterwards I've been loving oatmeal with a Tbsp of peanut butter and 1/2-1 banana, depending on how hungry I am. <BR> <BR> Anyone else eating something great lately? Sun, 7 Feb 2010 10:46:12 EST Help for Haiti challenge If you aren't aware of it, Nike is trying to raise $100,000 on top of the $400,000 they pledge to donate. For every mile we run, they'll donate $1. Here's the link if anyones' interested: <link><BR>ws-en_US/2010/02/01/help-for-haiti-joi<BR>n-the-challenge </link> Thu, 4 Feb 2010 14:20:52 EST Current Power Songs?

Sun, 31 Jan 2010 13:27:25 EST Hello! Hi everyone! I'm new to the team. <em>213</em> I've had my Nike+ since about August. I stopped using it when the weather turned cold and ran inside on a treadmill for a while. Just pulled it out again today for the first run outside in about two months. Woo hoo! Feels great! <BR> <BR> I tried to find a February challenge on Nike+, but all I could find was the January one. Is there not one out for February yet? <BR> <BR> Looking forward to running with you all! Sun, 31 Jan 2010 01:38:13 EST Looks like there hasn't been a newbie for a while. Hi folks. <BR> <BR> I'm Nancy from Vancouver(ish) BC. I got my Nike+ in November, but haven't started using it 'til lately. I think I have 4-5 "runs" logged. I'm primarily a walker, but I toy w/ jogging every now & then, tossing is a bit of a jog into my walks or trying out C25K here & there. <BR> <BR> I love my Nike+ & am thrilled to see y'all have a challenge on the Nike+ website. I'll join the Feb. challenge, if that's OK... <BR> <BR> Cheers! Wed, 27 Jan 2010 20:19:42 EST Tracking runs I was just wondering do people only keep the + going for the running portion of your workout or do you include your warm up/cool down walk, if you do one? It seems it would alter your overall pace records if you keep tracking while you're walking. <BR> Which is best? Tue, 26 Jan 2010 23:29:37 EST Any SP challenges on Nike+? Anyone here have a challenge on Nike+? I was just wondering as a team are their challenges posted here or there, if any. Mon, 25 Jan 2010 23:39:33 EST Are manual logs possible? Last week I was vacationing in Cozumel, Mexico and ran every morning (the place just welcomes you to do that). I was so proud I could make my 4 and 5 mile runs at a very light and steady pace (with no walking breaks) but the battery on my ipod just died... the very second day! So, I could record only one run and the 5 other runs just are on my fitness log and not on the Nike+ website, not mentioning that my MINI is quite hostile right now (LOL). <BR> I hope Nike would allow us to manually log... Sun, 24 Jan 2010 19:20:59 EST What am I doing wrong? calibration today=FAIL. <BR> <BR> It started out ok for the walking portion; I set it for one mile and when I hit the distance, stopped the calibration and the voice said it was set. When I went to set it for run, the first thing I noticed was it said walk, uncalibrated. run, uncalibrated. So did it save? <BR> <BR> Then I tried to do it for run and all it kept saying was walk to find sensor, but it never found the sensor. What am I doing wrong? <BR> <BR> This is so frustrating and I tri...

Last year I was overly ambitious and didn't come anywhere close to reaching it. <BR> <BR> This year I am going for 10 miles/week (520 miles), and I plan to run Sun, Tues, Thurs and Sat, so 2.5 miles each on average at the minimum. It seems doable to me now....hopefully it will still seem that way in a month or six! :) <BR> <BR> What are your goals?!

After Nike+ changed the setup of the website, creating challenges became much more difficult that it should be. Also, my latest Nike+ sensor died on me after only having it for 4 months.

Current goals are to run a 10k, lose weight and be healthier. <BR> <BR> Good luck to all! Mon, 28 Sep 2009 12:24:23 EST Data won't push to iTunes/Nike=no challenges I had trouble with my Nano. The Nike+ is working for me with my for training purposes...I am okay. However, the tab on my iTunes is gone and it isn't prompting to send data or visit Nike anymore :( <BR> <BR> Since I have not lost total function of the tool, I don't plan to replace it. I did a 23 miler last week and it won't count in the one challenge that I was still in with you guys. Ah well! Sun, 20 Sep 2009 10:08:51 EST Hi Everyone! Hi all!

Apple introduced a new iPod Nano with a built in pedometer this week.

Fri, 11 Sep 2009 08:29:36 EST track calibration I thought I would share this info: <BR> <BR> I calibrated my Nike+ on a track in my neighborhood only to discover 8 months later that it is not a regular 400m track. I had always thought it was the varying inclines on my run but no. <BR> <BR> If you are using a track at an elementary school or middle school, it may be worth asking the office or a runner's group that uses it.

Thu, 13 Aug 2009 13:25:36 EST Line Graph Question on Nike+ Website Hi, <BR> <BR> You know that line graph that you see on the Nike+ website that charts your latest run? Can we do anything more with it than just look it at? I noticed recently that I have been seeing a lot of "dips" in the middle of my run (according to the chart), and I want to be able to figure out WHEN exactly those drops in pace happen; like how many minutes into my run did I slow down because I really cannot tell that I'm doing that. <BR> <BR> Anyone know if there is more to that li...

WOOT! I just purchased my Nike sensor and I LOVE it! My husband bought me an ipod for Mother's Day. When I discovered the Nike+ system I was thrilled because I just started walking this summer for exercise. I didn't buy the Nike+ shoes. Instead I bought a Nike+ pouch that fastens on my shoes with the use of my shoe strings. It works great! Now if I could only get rid of the blisters on my heels!

I find the Nike+ calories to be greater! I have not been losing and wondering if I may be consuming way too many calories. Anyone have an experience like this?

It's pretty easy for me but I'm trying to ease myself in without burning out - my normal issue.

Thu, 28 May 2009 17:18:41 EST Hi There!! Ok, so I bought the Nike + Ipod on Friday and LLOOVVEE It!!! I'm a newbie runner and Friday night I ran a full mile outside... a big accomplishment for me since it's something I've never done.. Anyway, My question is this. I ran on a treadmill with the chip and while the treadmill said I did 2.0 miles, my shoe said I did 2.5 miles. Anyone know which is more accurate? I mean I'm happy either way, I'm just curious.

Other than going to a track, how can I calibrate it in my neighborhood? How close to the chosen distance do u have to be? <BR> <BR> Thanks :) Tue, 19 May 2009 21:27:37 EST nike+ ipod touch issue I went out today to try to calibrate my nike+ sensor. It seems that the sensor didn't calibrate. Exactly how does the ipod need to be worn and do you have to go into the ipod settings to get it working properly? <BR> <BR> I read a few different sites and I went through the nike+ thing on the touch and picked walk and the distance but nothing. Any ideas? Thu, 7 May 2009 19:56:18 EST Hello from California I just recently purchased and IPOD NANO and nike+... I use it with the pouch so i can run with my sauconys or new balance shoes.

You can track what you eat and how much and it equates for your exercise and give you a timeline for when you will meet your goal! <BR> <BR> BAD part is that I can't get the Nike+ to pick up my sensor!

Sun, 15 Mar 2009 09:38:23 EST FRUSTRATED! How Do I...? After trying unsuccessfully for the millionth time to calibrate my Nike+iPod, I thought I'd turn to you guys for help. <BR> I'm not sure what it is that I'm doing wrong, but every time I try to calibrate it, it takes me a good 45 min to reach the minimum of .25 miles. Now I know I'm not as in shape as I could be, but I'm young and not shuffling around with a walker. I know that I'm going faster than that, though it doesn't seem to register. <BR> What could I be doing wrong? Sun, 22 Feb 2009 10:42:27 EST Won't Play!!! Okay so I just wanted to get some insight into why my Ipod can't handle the Nike+ system and see if anyone else had this problem! <BR> <BR> My Nike+ stopped working in November and it made it so that my Ipod wouldn'd play at all. So took it in and got the Ipod fixed and he said the Nike+ was working fine it found the sensor and everthing. Got home and put it in my shoe and wouldn't find the sensor. Finally two weeks ago got a new sensor thinking that was the problem! NOPE and when I tried to... Fri, 13 Feb 2009 19:35:28 EST Belkin Sports Armband and Sensor Pouch - Free!

I'm curious if anyone uses more than one, and if so how it works. Ideally, I'd like to buy another sensor to use with a different pair of running shoes, but still have both of them connect to the same profile and use with the same ipod. <BR> <BR> Does anyone know if this is possible? <BR> <BR> I'm trying to alternate the shoes I run in and bought something to attach the sensor to my Brooks running shoes.

I've been running ever since doing track in HS during my football and lacrosse offseasons. I've had a few detours into the land of Marlboro and laziness but I've been back on track since September. Part of my deal that I made with myself was to invest in the Nike+ system so I can motivate myself past the "wall" of which I'm sure we're all familiar. So far I love the system and look forward to utilizing it in my training for some upcoming races in which I hope to be running. First up is a 3K i...

The breakdown is as follows: <BR> <BR> Beginners: just started running within the past year <BR> <BR> Intermediate: have been running for 2 to 5 years <BR> <BR> Advanced: have been running for more than 5 years <BR> <BR> When you accept the challenge, pick what group you fall into. If everyone likes this challenge, I'll change it up next month but with mile times, etc. Wed, 29 Oct 2008 06:59:47 EST Christmas Challenge Hi everyone, I've been off track for about a month now. I just issued a challenge in the hopes that it will get me back on track (and keep me on track). If you do a search for Reindeer Run on the Nike+ website it should come up. <BR> <BR> Keep running! Sun, 26 Oct 2008 15:32:42 EST Life of Nike Sensor Ok, I must admit that I have not been very consistent to working out with my NikePlus. However, I want to become dedicated. I think one reason for this was that my first sensor did not seem to have a very long life. This question is for those of you who have used Nike Plus for a long period of time...let's say over a year. My question: What is the normal life of a sensor if used on a daily or every other day basis? Also...I know we are supposed to deactivate the sensor when not in use f...

Wed, 22 Oct 2008 19:01:52 EST Nike+ Women's Half Marathon Anyone else running the Nike+ Women's half marathon this Sunday? I'm running it virtually but I'm still excited about it as it's my first half marathon! Fri, 17 Oct 2008 14:34:40 EST Need to Get Started! I have my Nike+, am super excited about it, but I can't get started... Manuals intimidate me, I guess, even as simple as this one seems. <BR> <BR> Can someone explain to me how I calibrate my Nike+? I know I need to go a mile... does it have to be at a steady pace (like on a treadmill)? Can I both run and walk during that initial calibration? Do I just hit a button that says "Calibrate" and start running? <BR> <BR> It may sound like I'm a techno-idiot, but I've been looking at this thing... Wed, 1 Oct 2008 11:41:36 EST Marathoning for Mortals Is anyone else using the Marathoning for Mortals training? I've started a group to support the training!!!

New to the team, returning to SparkPeople, not new to nike+. <BR> <BR> Love the device, but am not so happy with trying to calibrate it...does anyone have any suggestions? <BR> <BR> Currently using the nike+ device to report distance and a Garmin Forerunner 205 to verify the distance. The Garmin is much more accurate than the Nike+, hence the desire to calibrate the Nike+. <BR> <BR> <BR> Lynn (anotherdusty) Mon, 22 Sep 2008 18:19:23 EST What's your powersong?? I'm currently using Plastic Bertrand Ca Plane Pour Moi, but I'm in need of something faster! I need a 160 to keep me at pace - 163 BPM to get me to my best pace. <BR> <BR> Anyone else score their runs by BPM? Mon, 22 Sep 2008 13:32:18 EST What are you training for? Since we have so many hard-core runners on this site, I am curious to see what races everyone is training for. If you're not training for a race, but are trying to tone up, lose weight, etc, post too! We can all cheer for each other! Sun, 21 Sep 2008 19:47:23 EST running question Hey!! I am relatively new to running outdoors. We are starting to have cool weather (48 degrees was the coldest so far on my run).I think that is cold but know it will get much colder soon. Anyway, my question is what to wear? Also is it normal to be more sore after running in the cold?? Fri, 19 Sep 2008 14:48:53 EST if you get a new ipod... does it saves your history of your workouts? or is there something i can do to transfer that?

Mon, 15 Sep 2008 08:25:07 EST Any lost a run on their iPod? *grumble grumble* <BR> <BR> I was 4.5 miles down on my 5 miler when my iPod stopped playing. I looked down and saw that my iPod was REBOOTING!!! When it finally came back on, my 4.5 previous miles WERE GONE! Ahhh!!! <BR> <BR> Has anyone ever had this problem?

I am 5 ft 6 inches and at my heaviest was 169. I dusted off the old iPod yesterday and hit the gym last night and this morning for a run/walk.
