Working off dinner… c’mon… let’s do it !

By Skip

Had to work off a very large dinner…..  My wife and I were walking back home and I convinced her to walk one of the routes with me.

It was very strange to walk it and not run… I kept wanting to pick up the pace and just go for it!

I posted this because I also wanted to tell you one last thing about the Nike+ app.  Besides the built-in workouts that are available, it allows you to create “My Workouts” which you can create your own program, like before that consists of any of the following types of workouts:

  • Basic
  • Time
  • Distance
  • Calorie

Once you choose the type of workout, choose the options and choose the music or playlist that you want to listen to.  It will then store that workout for you so next time around all you have to do is click one item and it will begin your pre-arranged workout & music!

I know I have talked quite a bit about the Nike+ app but really, it is one of the single most important aspects that kept me motivated up until now.  I can not stress that enough.

So if you have read any of the blog thus far you know a little bit about me… I can not be told what to do and I push myself about as far as I can be pushed!

But how did I get here and why? Well, that is what this page is about.

I was never really the athletic type. Sure, I played tennis in high school (and quite well, mind you) but running CERTAINLY was never my thing!

The start of 2009 was big for me as I came to the realization that I had put on too much weight over the past 10 years (read more...)
