My biggest aggravation with running outside is that I have to carry my phone with me everywhere just so I could get my milage and time. Finally yesterday I decided to go and look at watches and decided on a Nike Plus watch. It’s a very simple watch and will make do until I figure out how much running I’m going to do. When I have a routine set, I’ll be getting a fancy watch. My thoughts are geared towards the Sunnto Ambit watch but it’s a whopping 500 dollars!

The Nike Plus watch connects to Nike Plus. It’ll be interesting to see how that works! I already had the tracker for my shoes but I still had to have my phone with me. I took the watch out for a quick spin last night (.75 mile) and at first it took a good while to connect with the GPS system. That wasn’t fun, standing around and waiting when I was all ready to go. Once it connected, it performed pretty well. Connected with the system and tracked my run really well. I had set it to recognize .25 miles as a lap. This gave me a high school track feel to my run.

This is the most exciting thing that has happend to me this week when it comes to running.
