Get in shape with Nike+iPod: Day 1

I made a bit of a pledge to myself a little over a month ago: I would get back into shape. I recently moved into my late twenties and wanted to feel better about my fitness level and less winded after somewhat routine athletic activity. At one point in my life, I was in good shape. I was competing in athletics. I just lacked the motivation that working with a team once offered. 苏州美睫美甲

So like any good geek, I spent money as a means for motivation. I went out and bought myself an Nike+iPod Sport Kit. It's not a terribly large amount of money at $29.95, but the combination of technology and a small investment was enough to get me out and running. I have now completed my first month of training and thought I would take some time over the next week and talk about some of the things that have made my running experiences more "enjoyable" (or as enjoyable as running can possibly be). Sure the kit has been out for a while, but if this inspires even one person to start running again, then score.

I ran into a problem almost immediately with my Nike+iPod Sport Kit: like so many, I don't fit into Nike's shoes. If you don't know already, most Nike running shoes have a divot taken out of the insole so you can place the sensor portion of the kit inside the shoe. I had a few different options: I could cut a hole into the insole of my shoes, I could "tie" the sensor into the laces, or I could buy a pouch for the sensor. Being what some may consider frugal, I decided to lace the device into my shoes: it took only a few days before I gave up on this tactic. The sensor would slip around no matter how tightly it was tied in, and there was always that uneasy feeling that it would squirt out of my shoe completely. Add this to the inconsistency of the distances I was running, and I was ready to pony up a nominal amount of money for a pouch.

The pouch that I bought was made by Grantwood Technology and cost me around $7.00 shipped from Amazon. It is simply a pouch with a black with a white logo on the front. When laced into your sneakers, the opening faces your laces, so there is nowhere for the sensor to go which equates to peace of mind.

I had an initial concern when I received the unit: at the time I wore my running shoes for more then just running and had to take the sensor out of my shoe after each run to save battery life. I was worried that with the way the pouch laced into the shoe, I wouldn't be able to get the sensor out without unlacing my entire shoe. It turned out that my fear was unfounded, and the sensor was easily enough removed. Since then I've gone to running-only shoes, Saucony Hurricane 8s, and I am glad I did. I'm also glad that I don't have to squeeze my feet into the sausage casings that are Nike's shoe line.
