04 Feb Adventures with Ami: Running Back in Time
If you know me at all, you know how I detest cardio.
Fitness in general for that matter.
I have had moments of like with a few things in the arena of exercise.
I really enjoy Bikram (hot) yoga.
I like riding a bike for transportation, but not for fitness.
There is a difference.
I don’t mind weight training.
I DETEST boot camp.
I hate running.
I’ve never been any good at it.
Nike Free Run+ 2
They do so by uploading your run data into the nike+ portal via your iPhone.
The transmitter calculates everything.
There by challenging you to try harder, run faster, farther, more often.
If you are at all competitive – like myself
you indeed will feel like you have on bionic shoes.
Employing any mechanism that will make me feel like going for a run
is a true feat.
My personal trainer, Travis, can attest to the numerous dirty looks and grumbling excuses any time the words run or jog come up in a session. My gym teacher in 5th grade Mr. Burgoing, can show you my failed Presidential Physical Fitness assessment. My sister can tell you that while she was running miles and miles in practice for field hockey, I opted to be a cheerleader, because we didn’t have to run. Seriously.
I have bionic shoes.
My husband bought them for me for Valentine’s Day.
He loves me.
He loves my heart too.
I ran 3 kilometers today.
2k solid without slowing to a speed walk to catch my breath for a minute or so.
I did it on purpose.
Tomorrow I will do it again.
