Pebbles In My Pocket


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I always lose count of which lap I am on when I do distance walking of the track. My mind wanders and then I'm like, which lap am I on? Now, I carry a pebble for each lap I want to do and toss the pebble after each lap. When my pocket is empty, then I am done! Now I'm free to let my mind wander, think, and dream!

    This is such a fantastic idea! In addition to the intended purpose of getting the lap count, it's also kind'a motivational to empty your pocket so it may inspire a better run. Good one!

    I used to do this when swimming laps in my pool. I'd precount 20 rocks from the nearby landscaping and place them at one end of the pool, then everytime I got down there, I'd toss one back where it came from until I was done!

    What a great idea!! I always lose track as well and this will solve the problem!
