THANK YOU AL GORE FOR CREATING THE INTERNET!
I am a huge fan of technology because I am lazy and anything that accelerates my life and helps keep me organized is AOK in my Kindle. Today I created an account on mapmyfitness.com. I’m all about keeping track of what I’m doing since there is a goal to this whole blog- I am supposed to run 52 miles per month people! This website helps you not only to keep track of your workout goals, but also your nutrition goals… nothing like typing in “bacon cheeseburger” to make you feel like a real health fanatic. I also downloaded onto my phone their nifty running app because as they say, there is an app for that… this app uses GPS to track your workout, the time, and the calories burned based on your height/weight. Yes, I kind of felt like big brother was watching and it did kind of creep me out that this phone knows where I am at all times… but I’m a sucker for this stuff! I used it today on my run and it definitely helped me see where I am at physically since it allows you to compare and contrast prior workouts.
I also created a new goal- because one isn’t enough. I started out aiming to not only run 52 miles per month, but also to complete a 5K in September (see here). I have been running on average 2 miles/day, but ultimately I want to be up to 4 miles by the end of next month! Here we go!
So, my advice- go set a goal, any goal! Make it something that you believe you can do, something you will be proud of, and something that you can modify once it had been accomplished!
Now for the rest of my day I have a yoga session, a bike ride, and some tacos in the horizon… All of which I will be documenting on the app.
