Day 3 On Track

Thursday, January 10, 2013

Wow! 3 days in a row!! I'm so proud of me! emoticon
So, I got to the gym, all ready to get on the treadmill (which I have MASTERED in two days!! LOL) and I see the treadmills are NEW! WTH? How do you use these? Where are the old ones? Dang! I hop on and start pushing buttons... different buttons than before. It's asking me questions I have no idea how to answer! My age - okay, got that... My weight - okay got that.... My resting heart rate... what? dunno.... used the default for now... My target heart rate... HTH should I know? I just started exercising. Okay.... use the default for that too.. belt starts moving.... it's too slow! and it's telling me to slow down!!! WTH??? So I stop the darn thing and it tells me which button to push to resume or push "reset" to cancel. I can't find "reset"!! The belt starts moving again!! I hit "stop" - again it tells me to push the button to resume or "reset". I can't find "reset" still, but I hit the button that had some kind of symbol on it & it worked! WHEW! There was an gym employee wiping down the equipment next to me and I asked her for help, but she just kept working without looking up,like she didn't hear. Then I noticed she had earphones on. Great! There was a maintenance man working on the new treadmills and he heard me asking her for help, and noticed she didn't hear me. So, he explained to me how to use this new piece of ... equipment! Wow! It's complicated! But AWESOME! Got 2.5 miles in 45 minutes for an average speed of 3.3 mph! Good Girl, Lala!
