Get fitted at a running store for those shoes! You're knees will thank you.

As far as rewards... having a sleek physique and not being embarrassed at the neighborhood's pool this summer was going to be my reward. But lately I've been thinking that when Mrs. J hits her goal (probably this fall), I'm going to buy us a couple of motorcycles. Shhh, don't tell her.

You never regret the workouts that you do. You regret the workouts that you DON'T do.

If I can do it, YOU can do it!

I'm investing sweat equity into... me

Oh I hear you about the shoes. Pulled out my old running shoes and went for my first run a week ago. My knees were complaining when I got back. Shoes are a tad old for the pounding despite me being 20# lighter. New shoes are in order.

Bought myself some new running clothes. Soon I will need a new pair of shoes.

the machine has a great feel and with the maps and the 30 different work outs, and 4 different levels, it really has a lot to offer as far as making the run less mentally boring, the ifit live is great and is free the first year. there are some off road programs that are short on miles but big on the elevation and that really works the legs but how often to I get to climb a trail in California with a 1600 foot gain. and the decline really makes the run feel more like I am working all the leg muscles. and for the price there is nothing out there I found that has the features for anything close to the price. I had a Nordic Track before and put 2000 miles on it and now it needs more in repairs then I thought it was worth,

I would love to get a report on your new treadmill; what you think of it, any negative points compared to others you have tried. What do you think of the iFit Live? Is it all that it's cracked up to be?

I bought a new thread mill, went all out and got a nordic track c1750, google maps, touch screen, commercial grade and it declines -3%. I prefer to run outside but some times that is not possible, and now there are 4 of us use it I thought it would be a useful to everyone. and with all the features, the miles really go by fast

I completed the SP 5K walk/jog training program. It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. So now I've taken the next step for this 60 year old body and signed up for another SP 5K jog/run virtual race. Since the weather here is heading for the better, I'll be doing most of my training outside at the park. Sick and tired of the damn dreadmill. I want some real road!!

In February, my reward for walking at least 1 mile each day of the month was dinner out at the Passion 8 Bistro (90% organic foods. Classy restaurant). Yes, it was food, but it was good quality and a special treat. (Can't afford to eat there regularly).


Did not set a reward for March.

For April, I've set a reward of some plants for the garden.


Nothing tastes as good as being healthy feels!

I'm not sure what mine will be yet. I want a new kayak or maybe I'll spring to get my bike overhauled but my reward for reaching my goal will definitely be some form of gear to stay active with!

Yours?
