Mousey has figured out Nike+

Okay, I have used up ALL of my computer battery just browsing the net and procrastinating on a post. So much so, it took me a whole 2 mins to remember what it was that I wanted to blog about. I still don’t remember exactly. I have a moleskin notebook just for this reason and yet I don’t use it. I carry that moleskin for the added fun of carrying around added weight. Whee!! πŸ˜›

Anyhow, I wanted to update everyone on my last frustrating post regarding Nike+Ipod. In the end, I finally figured out why it did not do what I wanted it to do. This, is after a sleepless night (not from thinking about this) of tossing and turning in bed from the extreme heatwave hitting us here in Italy. I suddenly thought about checking the settings on the app. Right at the bottom, there is a “send to Nike+” button. After clicking on that, it sent! I didn’t realise I had to do that each time I want the details sent. It used to do that automatically. Something has changed.

Then, I was wondering why my runs didn’t show up on the history part of the app. I am thinking it is because the history part only holds the runs that I did with my Nike sensor. Since all the rest that I did with the treadmill in the gym is all recorded but not shown. The last run shown on it was the one that I braved the summer heat here (not repeating this performance!) with the sensor tucked into my shoe.

So, here it is my revelation! and the update on my debacle with the Nike+Ipod app on my Ipod. πŸ™‚

Now I can rest in peace. πŸ˜›

Shop is closing for the night. It is almost 1 am here. Goose night people!!


Not a happy camper!

I have discovered to my dismay that my “Nike+Ipod” app is not working well on my Ipod. 😦 Since I started exercising (OMG, you can’t imagine how long it took me to spell exercise!! I really need to brush up, man!) again, I have been monitoring my running with this app. So far so good. Once, my data was not updated on the Nikeplus site because it was missing. I didn’t know what happened but the next day it was back and updated.

So this time I thought it would be the same. How wrong was I!! It has updated only till the 7th of August but since then I have been back at the gym at least 5 times and not once was it recorded at all! Dang it! Even today’s run was noted on my Ipod but after the run I went to check and it wasn’t there! How frustrating!! *_*

Is this normal? Is it normal for the Nike app to do this? Anyone knows?

I have reset the Ipod to their factory settings and restored everything. Fingers crossed, it works.

All my hard work down the drain. Well, not exactly. The hard work should technically be showing on my body but I want to track my progress! 😦

Luckily I didn’t sign up for one of those Nike+ weekly or monthly challenges. I would have failed miserably and not even due to my own laziness! Technical fault and through no fault of my own.

Now to drag my ass for more gym.

Toodeloos and goose night!!
