And now a silly question

Thursday, March 15, 2012

Due to the weather last night, I decided to go swimming.

Two laps in and the power went out at the gym. They told us that we needed to leave. I was halfway dressed when the power came back on.

It took some kicking of my own a$$, but I decided to give it another try.

Here is the question.

How many fitness points do I get to log in for getting on a wet bathing suit?

Seriously, that clown dance should be worth *some* sort of points.

    lol! (Literally!) That clown dance really does deserve some points! I have whined so many times about men's verses women's swim suits, and tried a two piece at one time, but it tended to ride up and down in different places. Will have to decide what kind of swimsuit to buy now that I have reached maintenance weight.

    Now that's determination and I think you should get an extra hundred points for that one.

    i do the bathing suit dance every summer on holidays I agree it should be worth some point more when the suit is cold

    Now that's what I call a Trooper!
I'll give you 100 points....5 for getting the suit back on and the rest for making the more difficult choice to actually do it!

I'm impressed! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Question for all you smart people

Wednesday, March 14, 2012

My Goodies don't automatically show the latest ones I've received. I have to periodically go in and move them up.

I poked around and still haven't found how to make that so.

Anyone know where the magical button I have to press is???

    Hmmm...I think I have to be counted out as "smart people"!

Mine also pop up in order, newest first.
You should ask that on the main community help board.

Not nearly as scary as I thought

Monday, March 12, 2012

I actually ran in public on Saturday. I did 6 miles of walking 3 minutes and running 1 minute.
emoticon
I had a Gymboss (wee timed vibrator) on my arm to remind me when to do either. It would have been impossible for me to do that without it! For those that are interested, I picked it and the band up from Amazon.

No land speed records were set, but I did knock 2 minutes off of my average minutes per mile. I'll take that!!
emoticon
The other good news is that while my knee was a bit sore by the end of the day...no real pain. Aside from some of my muscles that are wondering what the hell happened.
emoticon
I went straight from my 6 miles to the Olympus Spa where I soaked in the 60 degree pool for 15 minutes.
emoticon
Oh, man was that cold, but I think that my running friends were right and it really did help with the inflammation in my joints.

There were several women that walked by me shocked that I was still in the cold pool. Talk about a conversation starter!

So here it is Monday and I have a few sore spots. I've done the stairs here at work a few times now and I'm feeling it.
emoticon
But weather permitting (that is kinda iffy) I have everything packed to go do it again after work. So please send your sunshine thoughts over (or up or down) to Seattle!!

    WooHoo! Big Step! You can do this. Glad the knees aren't acting up too badly. I found out just how bad my knees are when I completed C25K and ran my one 5k - I was in pain even on non-running days. But that's me and I'm not sorry that I got that far and found that out. This is the perfect time of year to get out there. Okay, perhaps after this week...

  Cool! I have been "going to start" Couch to 5K for 6 months now, but I'm embarrassed to go out in public. You are a great motivator! Time for me to get out there too! Thanks!
