I have a list of all the names as well and next to the names of those who have confirmed, it reads "No Run Data", although I did run this AM. It could be the problem that others are reporting about the Nike+ website.Hect0r said:how do you view the challenge? As the person who started it I just have a list of who is confirmed and who isn't. How does it look to participants and how might I access a graph or something showing how everyone is doing. Thanks.
Yesterday my nike+ just quit on me at the end of my 6 mile tempo. It was pretty hot out, around 92. So it maybe the heat. This just makes me made because I was going out at a pretty nice of approx. 5:45/mile and to have the thing crap out on me during the last 100m.Marathonman said:I agree there are problems with the Nike+ site. It also lost my goals and even though I ran 3 miles in the 90+ degree temperature yesterday, the run doesn't show up in my challenges, so I'm down 3 miles and I need all I can get.
Both my college and my high school track coaches emphasized to never stretch when you are cold. Cold stretching causes microtears in your muscles that can lead to muscle pulls and tears down the road (pardon the pun).[email protected] said:I think the advice about being careful not to increase mileage too much too fast is good, however, it is not clear that stretching BEFORE a run when your muscles are cold is good for you.
There is still a lot of raging debate going on about stretching in general. I do not stretch cold muscles. Most experienced runners will warm up first (2-3 miles), and then stretch.
I always stretch after a run, and it seems to be working well for me.
Obviously, everyone should do what their medical professional has recommended, but I don't think you can say that everyone should stretch before a run as a blanket statement.

yeah, I just cranked out a 7 mile recovery tonight in 84 degree heat and had no problems tonight except for the nike+ website screwing up the times I did my run. It said I ran at 1 am...last time I checked I was asleep at 1:00 am on 8/2/06.tenja said:I agree. You will win the competition hands down if you are a college runner prepping for the fall season. You should be cranking out 8-10 miles a day at this point in the summer.
As for the competition and challenges, I can see where it will be fun to challenge your friends. It won't be so much fun on a broad scale strictly based on the different levels of people's ability. I like what Nike is doing, I just don't see the challenges as that big of a sell point. I hope they fine tune some more options for the logging, like being able to download your data in spreadsheet form, etc.
