First Post Christmas Run...Much Needed!

Well, it was far to long of a break, but I am back in the saddle with my first Post Christmas trail run!

The trail was beautiful, but the snow makes for SLOW going. My average road rate for jogging is 9:30 min/mile and my normal trail rate is 11:30-12:00 min/mile. Today it was a slow 13:53 min/mile. It makes it a little harder to get the full cardio workout, but with small steps and keeping your feet under you, it is more of a Cardio challenge than it sounds! It also brings a lot of focus, core and balance to the dance. For my fellow BTWG'ers with iPhones and similar devices, I highly recommend the iMap My Fitness App (screen shot below). It is a great way to track and monitor your progress. Also, if you run lots of different places it makes it much easier to know distance and pace!

iPhone Blogger App

Well, as the name of my Blog suggests, I travel a lot! I am trying a new iPhone App for blog posting. I want to see how easy it is to use and how it looks on the Blog. So far so good on my side, how does it look on the Blog?

Check out the World's Best Trainer on Fox 59 this morning. I personally think the example student he showed is Extremely Good Looking! HE HE HE!

Here We Go Again!

Well, even though Chris has taught me everything I need to know to Live a healthy life, I desperately need a refresher. My exercise routine has stayed pretty strong, the last few weeks have been a challenge with added responsibilities at work, but overall, that is NOT my biggest challenge, as always it is food and drink!

I struggle with Portion sizing and mindless eating more than anything, and the Project helps me focus on being accountable for every bite I eat. I also feel the project motivates me to see myself differently. It defines me as a fitness minded person with responsibility to
Myself, Chris and my fellow recruits. I am looking forward to the new challenges and wrinkles that Chris has thrown into the Project and I am excited to meet my fellow recruits, old friends and new!

Let's get this party started!
