I’m all about keeping running fun. Specifically, keeping track of running. I use two online sites to record and share my runs: MotionBased for GPS data from my Garmin and Runner+ for data collected via Nike+.
(Some days I sepnd more time uploading my runs and look at everyone else’s, than actually running…)
For a while I was using the Nike+ kit with my iPod Nano, but it was not exactly convenient or accurate and started acting up over the past couple months. I’ve decided to give the new Nike SportBand a try.
It doesn’t operate through my temperamental iPod (guess what I need for my Birthday!) and it can be manually calibrated – two huge perks over the old system. So far, I like it, but it’s amazing how difficult it is to get used to wearing something new on my wrist. This tiny band is unbelievably annoying, but I barely notice the chunky-monkey Garmin on my other wrist anymore, so I’m sure I’ll adjust to this.
