I got my Nike+ ipod sensor last August. It’s been fine, but I have been coveting a Garmin Forerunner. I told myself I wouldn’t get the Garmin until I hit 168 pounds (GW). I’ve been in plateau-ville for 200 years now, but I still want to hold out for my reward.
When I got my Brooks, I bought the Nike+ sensor pouch for it and ran my half marathon with it a few weeks ago no problem. Well in the last 2 weeks my sensor has died. Really it didn’t even last a year? Of course it dies while I’m speed training, but I’ve gotten through it with my ipod’s stopwatch function.
However Sunday is my Race for Hope 5K which will be the 2nd time I ran this race (which last year was my first ever). I’ve been hoping to smash my time, but I’m worried that without the sensor that my pace will be off, plus I like knowing how far I am. The course last year was marked in kilos and I prefer miles.
I really don’t want to buy another sensor because I want to upgrade to the Garmin in 10 pounds. So here I am frustrated!
