Nike+ Experience - 14.04.2007

The day before The Orange Run, I went to the Fitness First to try out the Nike+ thingy. Actually, I dont think would fancy Nike shoes again as they didn’t give me a good experience. Nike Air burst! Crap!

Coincidently, there’s a <4min-in-1km> challenge. The reward, a baby Nike bottle.

My last treadmill experience caused me a backache. Heck, only 1KM this time. Inserted the iPod transmitter to the Nike Air Structure Triax+ 10 shoes, and plug the other receiver to the iPod Nano, off we go. It’s cool! The iPod gives you a reading on km/min, distance build up, time and of course, the music.


Started slow to warm up. And, when I was ready, time started to elaspse. Behind the timing initially. Then, my finger kept pressing the + button to increase the speed, 3.5Min/Km shown on iPod! Such ready excited me a lot as you would want to go faster. Maintained the speed until end of 1KM. The bottle is mine. Wahaha. Big drop of sweat though...

Then, the Nike girl plugged the receiver into into laptop, and it shows my running pattern and speed spread in graph. Never doubt Nike is miles away in design and creativity though. With iPod, this product is really really really cool! But, the price and shoes quality always turned me away.


Shopping lists:
- Nike+ iPod Sport Kit (RM138. SGD43 in Spore)
- Nike+ Ready Shoes (Pricey. RM300-500)
- iPod Nano (No info. Cause I already got one ;-)

Sigh, cool gadget needs cool $... Cruel world.
