I just saw the challenge you posted, wanna go and do it??? You'll just need my email, let me know.Tonzino said:Anyways... who wants to start an iLounge Nike+ Challenge??? it says you can challenge up to 50 people that would be kind of cool...id probably come in last lol im not the most hardcore runner by far but i think it would be cool to have a little friendly competition here.... maybe if we get enough people the Moderator can sticky this and see if we can get some prizes or something haha
Well my suggestion for the challenges would be Fastest 1 mile, Fastest 5k/ 10k, and Most Miles ran in like a span of 2 weeks or something....
Whoever wants to start it up or has any suggestions on how we can do this go ahead and post in here...

I posted the following on a different thread but this looks a better place for it.
I bought a new Nano and ipod kit yesterday and went out for a run last night to try it out. Everything seemed ok, it linked and I did some calibration and then set out on a 5K run.
The problem came with its actual measurement of the distance. As I progressed I was thinking that I had covered more ground than the female voice was informing me and by the time I came to the end of my 5K route it stated that I had covered 4.1 km instead.
Now I planned out this route on Google's pedometer so i'm pretty sure that it is a true 5k, my time was consistent with what I would expect for that distance too.
The only thing that is slightly different from the proscribed set up is the sensor in the shoe business. I bought a Nike key pouch that goes over my laces and popped the sensor in there as this seems to have worked for others.
Also the calibration should be done at the pace you'll be running at and if you calibrate for running and walking both I find you get better accuracy.
So does anyone else have similar experience with this, or be able to recommend a solution ?
