I went back to the running store to exchange the inserts yesterday. I had some to correct my feet that pronate, but they caused my knees to hurt. My physical therapist says sometimes our feet will not adjust to one that is too corrective.
When I got the new one in, I tried them out by running, outside the store. In my skirt. I must have looked really funny, but what the heck. I regretted it after I got back inside the store and began to sweat. Just before our choir party, I wanted a shower.
oh well, I really didn't run that far, maybe a couple of blocks, but it was in 100 degree weather, and my body protested.
But while there, I purchased a new gadget. It is called Nike+Ipod. To quote the web site:
"The Sport Kit allows your Nike+ shoe to talk to your iPod nano. The sensor uses a sensitive accelerometer to measure your activity, then wirelessly transfers this data to the receiver on your iPod nano."
There is a voice that tells you how many minutes you have run, and how many left, how far you've run, what your average mph is and calories. It depends on if you set your goal for calories, distance or minutes. Today I set it for 60 minutes. I wasn't home when I had completed the 60 minutes, but it continued to count and then summarized it all when I got home. Sometimes she is a bit of a nag, but as I get better, I think I will look forward to her nagging/er um reminding.
I have to set up a Nike account then when I plug my nano into the computer, it will send all that information to my account.
Wow, we have come a long way in technology. Totally amazing.
Having fun with my new gadget.
why am I so exhausted? I am craving a chocolate chip cookie. I had better get out something healthy.
