Nike + Plus Ipod Running Shoes : Nike + Model Shoes

The Nike + plus running shoes are shoes from Nike that comes with a pouch for a sensor device from Nike that calculates the distance traveled, pace and calories burned by a runner.

Not all Nike shoes come with a ready made pouch for fitting the sensor, runners are advised to buy Nike+ model shoes.

One Nike+ model shoe is these Nike Men’s Air Max Moto + 6 shoes.

Once a runner purchase the gear he can register with official Nike Plus website to store his workouts.

Nike Plus does all these little things, like when you do your longest or fastest run, Lance Armstrong or Tiger Woods comes on and congratulates you on your iPod. So, you’re thinking while you’re running, I’m not going to get Tiger Woods unless I run really fast or long.

Running Tip : Swing Your Arms & Hands To Run Faster

One technique for proper running is to always remember to swing your arms while running. Most runners make the mistake of running with their arms at a stationary position. We runners have the tendency to hold our arms on our chest. The proper running technique is your arms should swing forwards and backwards the same as your leg movement.

Running well and running fast is a skill, not something you were born with (unless off course you are Usain Bolt or Kenenisa Bekele). And just like any other skill it can be taught.

In the following video shot at Nike naked running camp, you will see when the runners slow down, the coach or camp director shouts at them reminding them to use their arms / hands to run faster.
