Nike+ Challenge

Calling all joggers!

I’ve had the Nike+ system for a while now, and I have to admit that it’s become a key part of my jogging. Being able to track how far I’ve run, and the average pace I run at has been a huge help. Sure the site is a bit big and clunky but with a nice fat broadband connection it’s fairly slick. Mind you I’m still duplicating my run data over on Fetch, as that lets me track other factors (temperature, shoes used, and any comments).

Whilst the Nike+ ‘community’ could do with a lot of work – they seem to be missing the boat when it comes to the social networking side of things – it does have some features and has really helped to keep me motivated.

But it’s time to move things on, there are only so many goals you can set yourself before you realise what you really need is… competition! I know a couple of you have the Nike+ system so how about a challenge? Let’s see who has the highest mileage after 30 days.


Leave a comment with your Nike+ id (or email address), or contact me separately. Once I’ve got a list or participants I’ll kick off a new challenge sometime next week.

Let the racing begin!


I’ve long preferred the hoops to the ..ehh… goals.. and being starved of NBA action is killing me, watching grainy 30-sec clips via the NBA website is NOT enough.

So my parents to pity on me (and are inflicting this on Louise) and bought as tickets for the Harlem Globetrotters on April 15th. Should be fun if not wholly basketball related. Can’t wait!
