    My left big toe is one big blister after yesterday's walk/run. I definitively need some better running shoes if I'm going to try a bit of running and not just walk from now on... :eek:

    Anybody know if Nike will come in a offroad/waterproof running Nike+ shoe...? I asked at the sports shop I got the Nike+ module, and they said "sure" in a very distrusting tone...

    start saving your nickels and dimes....:D

    i'm not sure. i have Nike Men's Air Max Azulikeit +

    i like the waffle tread. i never run on the roads, and they've done pretty good so far i think.

    Thanks Mr. A for setting up the thread.

    Saw the 1 mile and 10K, but the 5K one disappeared from LikeTom...was there another 5K challenge that I missed the boat on? nike+ name ---> ziwi

    Any idea what the total group mileage ended up at for January? Just wondering if the group can best that in a shorter month this time.

    I'm pretty stoked that I got 36 miles in last month, and hoping to do the same/better in February. Like the others have said, I'm doing much better thanks to these challenges. Though today I about died at the end, since I lowered my overall pace by 1 minute/mile. Now I'm pooped.

    ok, so i had a pretty good run today. it was cold, and based what others said about your fastest mile had to be your first, i decided to run a little harder for the first mile of my 10k. i was planning on going about 6:45 for the first mile...

    but i ended up running 5:48:eek: and i slowed down a little bit, but kept it going pretty good the rest of the run. i averaged 6:17 per mile for the total run.

    my legs are tired now though

    Forgive me if everyone else has noticed this, but I *think* it's pretty new. There's now a feature to map your runs within the nike+ site. It's pretty cool, but I haven't messed around with it too much, since my runs lately have been on a treadmill.

    It's pretty cool, so far, actually. You can assign each run to a route, and then sort your runs by result...so I can see how well I do just on my "round the block" route vs. how I do on the treadmill. Plus, I was using the comments to keep track of this information (where the run occurred), and now I can use the comments for how I feel during or after the run, or the weather during it, or anything other random notes, like it should be used.

    I planned to get into the february challenge, but looks like I will be at a disadvantage, because my Nike + is still on the way. For the record, I ran about 4 miles today. Hopefully I will have it for saturday for the 10k road run I am doing.

    Here's what it looks like when you start out too fast and fade at the end. Usually I do a better job of pacing myself....stupid 1 mile challenge :p.

    Well I certainly hope not to bring up the ass this time!
    I may have to do more walking though than running, but hey movement is movement!

    yeah, hopefully you'll get it soon. it'll help you in the race if it doesn't get in your way

    as long as you make up for, we'll forgive you ;)

    j/k, but it's good that you're making up for it :)

    nothing wrong with that. at least you didn't quit. that's what matters. never give up ;)

    hey, there's nothing wrong with walking. i've walked more than you think on here. keep your head up :)

    It was pretty tough at the 25-minute mark, there was a little gremlin saying "it's OK if you walk for 30 seconds, or maybe a minute...". At which point I actually sped up a little, just to fight him off. If I'd had to go another 5 minutes, he might have gotten me.

    :eek:

    WOW! Now that's a time to be beaten by! I knew you were going to post an impressive time but that's 1'06 faster! Not sure I can make much of that up..... I'm going to see how close I can get though!

    I'm going for a 10k today to at least post a time, I'll be happing with something around 55mins so that I'll put me last of people who have done 10k but they only way is up after that!

    I know it's nice to have it with Nike+ site but Map My Run is a seperate site that I use to do exactly this. I use it to try and find myself new 5k and 10k routes so I don't get bored...... also means you never have to worry about it when you are out there.
