I'm in the middle of a good stretch here. Monday comes, decent weather, and a 6 miler to bang out. I look down at my Nike Sportswatch this morning when I pick it up from the counter, F, it's completely blank.... I get to work, plug it in my mac, nothing. I google how to reset it manually, hold down the select button and the up button, nothing.
Now, right before I run this morning, I send messages to Nike, a blogger I talk with once in awhile, and hope for some help with this situation. Now I wait.....
I ran a information-less 6 miles today, around an 8:15-8:20/mile pace. I ran on grass to keep the pounding to a minimum. I am putting in some longer miles tomorrow and this week in general so I want to be smart about the pounding of the pavement. It's funny, because I sometimes unplug on runs anyway. However, when you are forced to go without a watch, it is uncomfortable. I missed my ability to get real time results, even if I was just looking for time or distance.
Time to fix or get a new watch. I am currently in contact with Nike.
