Tracking Your Runs

I have been using Nike+ for the past 3 years. It’s a non-removable app on my iPhone so I figured it was worth a shot. I did some research and when I was about to buy shoes I opted for ones compatible with Nike+. I also purchased the little tracker that goes in your shoe.


Not always accurate distance.


You need to purchase both the tracker (as far as I know) as well as the Nike+ compatible shoe. This narrows your shoe choice to only Nikes.



Tracks a number of things like pace, elevation, distance, and breaks it down by the kilometer/mile

You can adjust audio distance reminders, I have mine set for every 3km I have someone telling me how I’m doing

You can add friends and see their workouts


Compatible with any shoe.

NOT limited to running.

This app tracks your walking, running, cycling, mountain biking, hiking, downhill skiing, cross country skiing, snowboarding, skating *gasp* wheelchair, rowing, elliptical and other. I would think other would include rollerblading, skateboarding, that sorta thing.

In summary I would just like to say how not cool it was that I have been running all this time and reading running blogs and never once had mentioned to me, or stumbled across people suggesting RunKeeper for a tracker. So, I’m saying it now *climbs onto mountain, bullhorn to mouth* RUNKEEPER IS ONE HECKUVA RUN TRACKER!!!!

  1. Definitely think I’m going to download Runkeeper and try it out. I’ve been using MapMyRun and MapMyRunTraining to train for a 10k and half marathon. But I’d like to be able to keep track of other activities besides running.

    • It’s proven to be a great app. I track my walks/bike rides to work just because I can. And when I go out rollerblading it works for that too. It’s pretty great. And yeah, there’s the training plans too which are good.
