So, how is the prize money going to be split up? Is any of it going to the current challenges?

My point was even after calibration, there is some inaccuracy based on the terrain you're running on. As for being up to 10% inaccurate out of the box that's plain false.

My wife's was spot on. Mine was shortchanging me by 12% each mile.
OK. So your point is it can be MORE than 10% inaccurate?? Good for you. My point is that people need to calibrate the sensor. I have seen way too many people complain about the distance being off when they don't do the calibration out of the box.

It sounds like you are getting good results on both units in your home.

I was going to ask you all, has anyone tried nike+ with another iPod, say the 4g iPod? I am curious if the nano is really needed to work.

this has been gone over quite a few times. At this time the Nano is the only one it works with and most people agree that it will stay that way. You can run and record your progress. Someone in the challenge can tell you where you would theoretically be in the standings.

I have run a couple of times with Nike + Ipod. I then hooked it up to my computer and let it upload my data. I can see that the Ipod recognizes my run, but on the Nike site, it won't show anything. Under the "My Runs" tab on the site, It asks me to Preview Nike+ runs now. Anyone know what the problem is?

Are you sure you are signed in to your account on the Nike+ site? I know if you check the site without logging in you see the "Preview Nike+ runs now" instead of actually showing your runs.

I am pretty sure that is your problem. Double check that you are signed in and you should have no problems from there.

I am positive I am logged in. It says Welcome Tyler at the top right next to Logout, My Account, and Newsletter. I don't get it at all.

After I emailed them, I got this stock reply:
Dear Nike+ Member,

Thank you for contacting Nike+ regarding your missing run data.

The Nikeplus.com website has experienced a problem recognizing many current
users. This issue has caused run data to not display or for members to be
prompted to open a new account. The Nikeplus.com website support team has
identified this issue and this will be corrected soon. We anticipate that all
run data will be restored to user accounts within 24 hours.

We apologize for any confusion this may have caused.

Thank you again for contacting Nike+.

I am looking to start a Nike + Challenge today for the most miles in a month, I want to get as many people as possible please either pm or post your emails. Most miles in a month is probably a good one because it doesn't measure how fast you run, so everyone has a chance.

For those walkers* who're using this device... anyone keen on doing a challenge for walkers only? Say, 200miles in 4 weeks or somwething to begin with?




* To me, walker = too fat to run! :)**

I'm training to do the Nike 10km Run London in October, bought the kit for motivation, love it, if someone could add me to their challenge I would be even more motivated.

Alternatively, I have set up a 10 day challenge starting on Monday 14th August, to see who can run the most km's in 10 days. Would love people to join up, particularly if you are doing the Run London 10km in October. PM me your email address.

I read that alot of you are needing an armband for jogging. I have the Xtrememac sportswrap. I bought it before the nike+ kit came out. So it does not fit, but it's made of neoprene. So I just made a small cut on the bottom for the sensor to fit through. I've logged 11 runs I think so far with no problems at all. I wear mine upside down since the earphone jack is on the bottom(keeps it from getting pulled too much, or getting under my elbow), plus this way to skip to the next song i just reach up and click right, instead of having to look at it and make sure my finger is in the right spot. Just make sure your cut doesn't connect to the hole for the earphone jack, and make sure it's slightly smaller than the jack for the sensor, neoprene stretches ofcourse. I connect the sensor then slip it into the jack. It has windows for the wheel and the screen, hope this helps.

The Challenge Begins!

It's 6:30 a.m. here in the Bx. NY. I'm starting with a 6 miler. Could I win this with 5 10- mile runs? No, I think I'll stay on my 10K race schedule. Shorter runs, faster pace. I'm getting too old to knock out double workouts, but I really like the motivational aspects of the Nikeplus site.
At least I'm running against guys in my age group which provides continual hope that not all is lost after one turns 55! By the way at 3 miles it started to pour. I tried picking up the pace but I was only getting more tired; besides who can outrun the rain? I was only wearing shorts due to the humidity, but they got so wet I thought they were going to fall off. I made it back home, 200 meters short of my 6-mile goal, but faster than I'd planned.
Good luck to everyone who's participating in the challenge. I hope that we'll have more of these in the future.

Wed. 9:30 p.m. = I've been away all day and when I checked the challenge site (First to 50) I was listed as having "no run data". Why is Nike cheating me out of my rain-soaked 6-miler on the morning of the 15th? So I ran a quick 2.5 mile workout this evening to check the challenge site to see if I would be listed. I was, but has anyone figured out what each segment is equal to in miles on the challenge bars?
Also how will the awards be meted out? 1st 4 places? Age-groups? Experience groups? 1st place gets it all? And what about a database of potential e-mail addresses for future challenges? Is there a Nikeplus administrator within this iPod forum?
