I went for a run

Nike+ Running

Usually not one to feel the need to participate in any kind of organised exercise I decided back in January to start running to get myself fit, after all, one needs to be prepared at all times in case called upon to make one’s Formula 1 debut…

One of the first things I did was invest in some decent shoes and gear, shoes in particular making all the difference. Being an information and statistics junkie, I also picked up a Nike+ kit to keep tabs on my running. After using it for a couple of weeks, I found it was also brilliant for staying motivated to try and beat my personal best time and distances whenever possible. At first I found that it wasn’t very accurate though after a couple of different attempts at callibrating it eventually started tracking distances with a fair degree of accuracy.

I’ve included a couple of sample graphs that are provided by the Nike+ service. Top one shows my run log, bottom one showing a recent run that happened to take my total distance covered since January past 125kms.
