Nike+iPod Failure

Nike + iPod Sport KitWendy walked her seventh marathon and even after seven events, she is still learning. Read about her thoughts here:

Most importantly, she had trouble with her Nike+iPod:

Electronic Failure: I walked with my iPod nano and planned to track it with my Nike+iPod sensor. But I should have turned it on at home and tested it out. Instead, I tried to do it in the portajohn line and, by golly, lots of other people were wearing Nike+iPod sensors and it wouldn’t link to mine. Oh well. I still had my Sportbrain pedometer to track my performance.”

I should have known that there could be interference with other Nike+iPods. I’ve never run into that problem with mine because I always run alone. If I went to a race, however, I’m sure I would. That’s another reason why a Polar system would be better. They have coded transmitters to prevent interference with other devices. Still, for 20 bucks, the Nike+ is a good little device.

    Sorry I haven’t kept things up to date. I should be up and running on Monday. Thanks for worrying about me.

    Thanks, Laura
