It’s Wednesday… so I thought it was fitting to give you some workout updates….
1. Couch to 5K is in full effect. I have one more day of “Week One” and I’ll be moving onward to “Week Two.” I’m also planning on raising the incline on the treadmill. They say it’s an easier transition to outdoor running if you put it on an incline of 1. Planning to try that tomorrow! NINE WEEKS until my race!
2. I’m Getting Super Strong – At my YMCA, they track all the weights you lift and all your cardio. There’s even prize intervals once you hit different levels of working out. They have a whole point system they use. Pretty cool!
I got an email today from one of the trainers at the gym that I’ve now lifted
more than 100,000 lbs so far!
I also spent time with one of the trainers on Friday learning about new machines and new exercises to tone up some problematic areas…. I see 200,000 lbs in my future really soon as result!
3. FitBit is BACK - Last week on the SAME day that I had my root canal, I pulled a pair of workout pants out of the dryer to find that my FitBit was attached to them. Now, what this means is that my favorite pedometer/life tracker went through not only the washer, but also the dryer. You might remember that I just got a warranty replacement MAYBE three weeks ago!!
I got referred back to FitBit customer service via Twitter and they once again took care of me! They’re sending me a new one! I didn’t beg for a new one in any way… they are just really generous about it!!!
In appreciation for their goodwill and because I had been eyeing it… I pre-ordered the new Fitbit Aria Scale! It is amazing and will replace my current WW scale. It wirelessly updates your weight online with your FitBit tracker (which feeds into MyFitnessPal) and it measures things I’ve never measured like body fat percentage, etc. I’m really excited about it. Will let you know what I think of it when it arrives!
Thank you once again, Fitbit. You’ve created quite the promoter in me!
How are your workouts this week??
