1/8/12 Community Jog

Untitled by lisas.lil.lam at Garmin Connect - Details

I did it. I got out there again. Actually, I've been out there a couple of times, but I kept forgetting to charge my Garmin device, so I couldn't post my results.

My New Year's Resolution was just to get off my butt more. I was able to get hold of a used elliptical similar to the one I had before, but a level or 2 up from mine. I just picked it up a few days ago and have logged a few miles on it so far.

Today, while my kids were eating breakfast, I logged approximately 2.12 miles on the machine. Boy was I drenched. But it felt good to accomplish that. I didn't get to do much else in exercise afterwards because we were cleaning house and prepping our kids for going back to school after our "Winter Break". So, I decided I wanted to log some more miles. I used the Garmin 500 Edge device as usual to monitor my distance/time/calories. But, I also used the "Couch to 5K" app on my iPhone. It has to walk/run, training your body to handle a straight run of the 5K. I tell you, when I don't use this app, I overdo it and my knee feels like it wants to fall off, rather pop off and scream bloody murder at me.

So, in conclusion of my exercise today I feel pretty darn proud of myself. I accomplished 6.45 miles today. Holy Cow!!! That's a lot for me!

What are your New Year's Resolutions, if any?
