Nike+ trainers have a built-in pocket under the insole for the Nike+ iPod sensor, which measures your activity and wirelessly transfer the information to your iPod nano while it continues to play your [MusicGuru running playlist]

You can choose whether the iPod nano displays information about the pace, time, distance or calories burned on your run. It intermittently gives you real-time voice feedback and gives you a performance summary at the end. You are even congratulated when you hit your personal best by either the Lance Armstrong or Paula Radcliffe!

If you feel you’re lagging, hold down the centre button on your iPod nano to play your pre-set Power Song. We’ve compiled a top ten list of the best motivating songs that you could use as your Power Song:

1.                  Eye of the tiger, Survivor

2.                  Pump it, Black Eyed Peas

3.                  Walk this way, Aerosmith and Run DMC

4.                  Firestarter, The Prodigy

5.                  I’m Still Standing, Elton John

6.                  Holding Out for a Hero, Bonnie Tyler

7.                  Don’t Stop Me Now, Queen
