I haven't been running over the past few years, but I have been recently. I'm a couple generations behind on the NikePlus experience, so I plugged it in this morning to see how it had evolved. The iPhone app and web dashboard are completely new to me, and entirely for the better. All the things that used to annoy me about running with it are gone (although I'm sure I'll find new ones). All of my old challenges, goals, and running maps were there, and I was immediately fed several suggestions to improve my running practice based on past behavior (even one suggestion that a goal may take "92 weeks" - yikes!)
I totally agree! I haven't been running for the past couple of years, either, but I started up again a couple of weeks ago, just casually, and NikePlus has gotten even better than it used to be.
It was great to see all of my old run data still there, and to be reminded of the last day that I ran (October 8, 2007, 2 days before Penelope was born). It's definitely time to start up again.
