Couch to 5K

Apple Nike and ipod sports kit on its way to me:)

Week 7 run 1 done and really enjoying it. Birthday next week and had a bit of a celebration last weekend as we could all get together and it was my eldest daughters birthday too. I had a running top and the above but it didn't fit the nano so am waiting for the next one to arrive. Really excited about this as I never know how far I have run think its about 3.5 k in 25 mins but can't wait to have a play with my new toy. Anyone else use this?

Yes, I've got the Nike+ sensor for my iPod Touch. It's really good for seeing how you are progressing. But it's worth calibrating it against a measured route (use a GPS to measure the distance) as everyone's stride length is different and if you just go with the basic settings, it might not be that accurate. Enjoy yourself.

Yes, it will hopefully be good for charting progress.

Does it function like an app like Runkeeper? Or is it more accurate?

I think it is, but I will know more when It arrives. I think any measure will be good because at the moment I haven't a clue. So long as its not wildly out I will be happy

Afaik it doesn't use GPS, so would suspect it's less accurate, but don't quote me on this - I might be completely wrong

I don't have a smart phone so this should help me chart how I'm doing, hope it arrives soon.
