I finally got all of the pieces to try out the Nike+iPod system. I signed up on the Nike Running website to set up my account. I inserted the Nike+iPod kit into my left shoe, and into the iPod nano. When I put the shoe on I couldn’t even tell it was in there. For my first run, I chose the timed session, and chose 50 minutes. I didn’t know what to expect, and didn’t calibrate it. I started my run, and after 5 minutes passed, it advised me of such. I counted up until minute 25, and stated my run was halfway through. From then on, it counted down every 5 minutes. Once it got to 5 minutes, it counted down every minute until the end. The mileage was pretty close! It was barely under, but I’d rather it be under than over.
When I came back and uploaded into iTunes, it prompted me to go to Nike’s website. I logged in, and there was my run. It was broken down into each mile and how fast I ran each. A nice little graph dipped and raised showing when I was going fast and at which times I slowed down. I’m impressed so far. I’ll post updates when I do each type of workout and give my final opinion on the product then.
