We all know that exercise makes you feel good. But wow, I just got done with a 4 mile jog/walk and I feel on top of the world! WOOHOO! Oh, fingers crossed that I can get used to this feeling so I can stop being so darn lazy and start exercising everyday!
I have never really been a runner. I grew up playing soccer and I have played my entire life. This is the first time in my life that I am actually starting to enjoy running. Gosh, I used to despise it. A goal of mine would be to run a half marathon. And I am going to try to work towards that for next year at the Music City Marathon. It will be perfect. It will force me to be in shape and hopefully look amazing in my wedding dress the next month. The marathon is in the beginning of April I believe, and our wedding is in May.
I thought that I would share some tools that are amazingly helpful. This is certainly not any kind of product review, this is introducing you all to the amazing-ness that is my running buddy. It is the Nike Plus Sportsband. It is a watch with USB thingy and sensor that "records" your runs. It logs time, distance, pace, and calories. This is what I love. You actually get to see how much work you are doing. So this allows you run anywhere and still see how far you are going. Once you are done, you just plug the USB thing into the computer and you have a page where is keeps track of all of your runs, data and everything. You can set up training programs and challenges with people from all over the world. There is the worlds largest 10K run on 10.24.2009. It's a great tool, and I love it!
So what motivates you all to get off of the couch?
I'm hoping that I can move tomorrow, so that I can get a good dose of running in again. I feel GRREEEAATTT!!
lol- and I'm a dork.
