Nike + Problems

I dropped my daughter off at church youth group and planned a run in the neighborhood near our church. It's called Dobson Ranch and it is a master planned community built in the early 1980's. It has several lakes and I ran around the north lake. It was dark, so I didn't see much, but I enjoyed the run.

I started my nike + on my ipod but I didn't get voice prompts. The music played, the time and mileage got recorded. I just didn' t hear the lady tell me my pace and when I reached each mile. When I got home, all the data was lost. I hope this is only a one time problem. We'll see.

Before I lost the data, I did look at it. From memory I did about 4.8 miles in 1 hour and 1 minute and some seconds. I ran a bit better, but in the middle of the run I walked for almost half a mile. I don't know why. I was just enjoying the walk.

This time next sunday I will have done my first half marathon. Before than I will attend a TnT meeting on Wednesday, met several fellow bloggers on Friday, gone to the health expo and carb loaded with the Tnt'ers on Saturday night. On Monday I am going to hear The Penquin, John Bingham speak to a group of TnT'ers.

It'll be a perfect week, especially if the Buckeyes win big tomorrow night. (I grew up in Ohio and my heart is still with my Ohio teams: Buckeyes football, Bengals football & Reds Baseball)

I deleted it because it was just too weird and had nothing to do with anything.

Best of luck this week Pat. You've done a great job training for your first 1/2 marathon. You should do very well with your run/walk strategy.

Pat, It sounds like an awesome week!

I can't come to the blogger meet up, my little tyke has a bday party that night. Bummer. Take lots of pics for me!

GOOD LUCK PAT. I hope Ohio State wins tonight as well. Not much of a SEC fan.
I do hope Wisconsin beats Ohio State in hoops tomorrow. The Badgers have the highest ranking in school history right now and it would be awesome to see them win a national championship sometime in my lifetime in either hoops or football. Once again GOOD LUCK.
