I love my toys, but this one just baffles me.
|This is how I felt I looked|
I'll tell you why.
Because the road to Starbucks is uphill, both ways. In blasting wind. With snow and ice and a a sharp, sharp 35 degree grade.
Hey. Would I exaggerate?
It's only a mile and a half--or probably only a mile since I'm not on the sidewalks and not looping around the park partway--but I haven't been on it since the Great Colitis Debacle in July. I didn't feel like my heart rate was getting too high, but holy fritos, my legs were burning before I was even halfway there.
I survived. And I'll do it again.
I haven't been slamming myself trying to get into shape RIGHT THIS VERY MINUTE. I figure I'll be more likely to stick with it if I ease into things. I'm not obsessive about my diet yet, though I need to be fairly soon; I've noticed that the days I don't eat a lot of processed carbs that my gut does better. I'm moving a bit more; there's a DYI 10K coming up in March benefitting the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and I'm walking it. I can walk 10K easy.
|Worn at the same time; that's a huge difference|
Really? Why the frak wouldn't they work on that before taking peoples' money? You know, like FitBit and Body Media and a bunch of others got mostly right from the moment they launched.
Yeah, not happy. But they also allow the use of the Nike phone app, so I'll wind up using that for the 10K.
I'm only doing it for the t-shirt. If not for the t-shirt, phfft. 10K, 4K, whatever...
Fine, don't believe me...
