Daniel Dias: Speed Takes Freedom - adidas

Sport allowed Daniel Dias to feel free. It gave him the chance to represent his country and be proud of what he does. Sport levels the playing field. In the pool, it’s just Dias and the water. He focuses on being the best he can be. He doesn’t impose any limits and goes as fast as he can.#SpeedTakes freedom.

Ellie Simmonds: Speed Takes Sacrifice - adidas

Reaching the top is hard. Staying there is harder. Ellie Simmonds burst on to the scene in Beijing when she was just 13. Training as a full-time athlete meant she missed out on the usual teenage experience. Eight years on, she still wants more. She’s still looking to be faster. Now more than ever she knows that speed takes sacrifice. Simmonds is a creator of speed.

I Ran, I Ran Not So Far. Couldn't Get Past Lazy.

Okay so I'm butchering a great 80's classic.  But I did go on a run yesterday.  My goal yesterday was to wake up at 5am and go running before swimming.  Now I did wake up at 5am but it was pouring outside.  So I turned off the alarm and slept in.  Little did I know at the time that the rain would stop by 6am.  Oh well.  So I didn't swim in the morning.  The rain did stop and the sun sorta came out and then it rained some more.  But of course it didn't start raining again till I was out on my run later in the day. Runke_wed
I dropped my stuff at the gym and hit the bricks as they say.  Well part of the run is on a cobblestone path so I can say bricks.  As you can see on my Runkeeper map above I ran to a point well a dead end and headed back.  I thought a street cut back but it turned out to be a dead end into a parking lot.  Oh well.  It was raining a bit at this point so I just ran back to the gym. Nike_wed
The difference between Runkeeper's GPS report on my Android phone and the Nike+ Sportband without GPS isn't all that much.  Now why do I use both then?  Well cuz' I like charts and graphs.  USA Today you had me at little colored infographics!  I have some friends on Nike+ and some on Runkeeper.  Then on top of that I also use DailyMile and now FitocracyDailyMile I can input or sync my Nike+ runs or if I had a Garmin I could import those runs.  While Fitocracy I can only sync Runkeeper.  At some point I'll hafta decide on one or another.  Note noone uses the Adidas miCoach app or device so that has falled off my radar and my phone.  Which is a same cuz' Adidas miCoach isn't so bad.  I'm rambling on about all this because for the holiday's I'm hoping to get a new training device.  And I'm a bit confused and overwelmed by all the choices.  My options right now are the sorta new Nike+ GPS Tom Tom Watch, Garmin Forerunner 910XT or the new Motorola MotoACTV.  Then on the other hand I can just continue using my Nike+ Sportband without GPS so I can continue on with Nike+ and Dailymile but for swimming but the FINIS Swimsense watch which can be synced with Runkeeper.  Too many choices!

Anyways, the point is that I did run yesterday.  And I ran with my new sneakers!  I now am running with Zoot Advantage 3.0's.  After my run I was back at the gym doing weight training focusing on arms and chest.

This morning it was swim time.  And boy was it chilly outside.  I heard reports that it was 48F while I see now that it is 50F.  Cool air but warm water with a pool temp of 83F.  Ugh.  Hate that! 

Warm Up

Mixed 500 followed by 300 Drill/Kick/Swim.  (800)

Main Set:

4x100's on 1:40

400 on 6:00

4x50's on 50

200 on 3:00

4x50's on 50

200 no interval

No extra breaks in between but had plenty of rest.  Almost too much rest.  I was getting chilly in between.  The deal was to get faster during the set.  The 100's were to be descending or pacing then the 400 would be swam at the faster pace.  The 4x50's were to set our pace again and the 2nd 200 was faster then the first 200.  Okay I did that.  My 100's were not descend but pace doing 17's and 16's.  My 400 I can in on 4:57 so had a minute rest.  My 50's sucked but my first 200 I did a 2:25 and my second a 2:15.  Not great but okay.  I was stuggling.  I could feel the cold air on my recovery and my arms were not liking that.  I felt sore by the last 200.  And not sore cuz' I was working hard but sore cuz my muscles were getting tensed up from the cold.  (1600/2400)

I then warmed down a 100 and called it a day.  Total workout 2,500 yards.  Would be interesting to see the swim in infographics via Swimsense.


NIKE+ Not Working? Nike's Working On That.

NIKE+ not working?  Say it isn't so!  Well I haven't had much problem with my Nike+ Sportband and using the nikerunning website.  Of course I haven't been running that much.  Well it sees according to Techcrunch "Nike Apologizes For Nike+ Issues, Promises Fixes, New Platform Soon.  Jayme Martin, VP and GM of Nike Running, has emailed a letter to Nike+ users, apologizing for the platform’s performance over the past few months. He says that Nike is aware of a number of issues that have been affecting its users, including problems logging in, syncing devices, sharing runs and editing profiles."  Hmm…I gotta admit that I did see my run the other day on Facebook but don't recall seeing it on Twitter.  Of course this whole slowdown/shutdown could have been in the time I was injured.  As of know I've yet to get my letter from Nike but here it is below


"    Dear Nike+ Member,

    It’s been a tough couple months for Nike+. We know from the feedback that there have been a number of issues, including logging in, syncing devices, sharing runs and editing profiles. Not everyone has been affected, but if you have experienced any of those problems, I’m genuinely sorry. Running is supposed to be pure, simple Nike-sportband-01-570x489 and uncomplicated. And Nike+ is supposed to enhance it, not make it more complex.

    Just like you, we hold ourselves to incredibly high standards, and right now Nike+ isn’t living up to them. There are lots of reasons why these problems began, but this letter isn’t about the excuses. This letter is about what we are doing to fix them and what’s coming next.

    As of today we have increased login speed and eliminated a majority of login failures. We have improved your ability to sync devices, log runs and post information to Facebook. We are also working on a new version of the Nike+ GPS app that will be released shortly. It will introduce some great new features and address some of the recent bugs.

    Things are better but we aren’t done yet. We’re working on a brand new platform for Nike+ that includes better coaching, maps and challenges. It will be much faster, more social, and easier to use, providing more information and analysis of your runs. Also in the works are some really exciting new products and services. We are committed to relentlessly improving and innovating to ensure that, just like you, Nike+ is never standing still.

    Thanks for taking the time to read this. If you have any thoughts or questions please email us or go to our Facebook page and we’ll get back to you.

    Thanks for your patience. We really appreciate you being a part of the Nike+ Nike+-SportWatch-GPS-powered-by-TomTom-WM0069_077_A family. There are great things to come.

    Jayme Martin

    VP/GM NIKE Running"



Now one could just say to hell with it and switch to Adidas miCoach or RunKeeper but if you are like me and been a long time Nike+ User (me since Janurary of 2007) it's hard to break the habit.  All those fun challenges and colored levels keep me running.  I'm at the purple level and I'm so proud.  I do gotta admit I use the Nike+ Sportband as a back up tool and to just to keep my Nike+ account busy/active.  It's also great for treadmill running as GPS really doesn't work then. 

I do hope they fix whatever problems they have had and come up with some new exciting stuff to keep us Nike+ fans happy and running.  I'm so not ready to give up my Pink and White Sportband!  Not yet!  Although the new Nike+ GPS Watch is pretty cool.
