Keeping Track of Casino Walking

Self Portrait Saturday 11-24-07 from FlickrYesterday, I used the Nike+ to keep track of all the walking we did around Las Vegas. Unfortunately, we didn’t log too many miles. Whenever we stopped walking, the Nike+ would eventually stop the workout, but I couldn’t hear it do it because I didn’t have my earbuds in. I wish I could set the thing to keep tracking no matter how many times I stop.

You can see the results of the walk here:

I only logged 1.11 miles because it had turned off a couple of times and I didn’t notice. Considering how often it turned itself off, we probably walked about 2.5 miles. Nike+ isn’t perfect. Not even by a long shot, but it’s better than anything else I’ve used and I LOVE competing on Runner+.

I’ve done pretty well exercising while I’ve been in Vegas, but no matter how much I exercise, I can’t make up for the eating. Someday, I’m going to figure out how to be with my family on a vacation without overeating. When I do, I’ll give you the inside scoop, okay?

    I had the same problem when we went hiking. We would have to pause for others in our group and it would turn off without me knowing.

    How about the Nike Amp+, do you think this would have the same issues??

    The Nike+ Amp only controls your iPod. It doesn’t measure your walks or runs at all.
