Not Quite Boot Camp

Fri Apr 09, 2010 5:14 pm by Drew

I don't know that anyone will read this, but I'm going to say it anyway...

Starting Sunday, I'm getting off my butt and doing what I'm supposed to. For the past three weeks, I've been getting up early and going to the gym, but I haven't followed it up with cardio and diet. (Cardio - no excuse. Diet - its been a bit hectic)

So I'm making a public commitment to do better for at least the next …

Come Run With Us

Fri Jan 15, 2010 7:54 pm by Drew

Marcus and I did the Walt Disney World half marathon on January 9. We both had done a half marathon before, but never in such a large group.

The run was great. It started outside EPCOT, ran over Disney roads, then through the Magic Kingdom (including running through Cinderella's castle), and back to EPCOT.

While it was fun, it would have been better in two ways: 1. not be so stinking cold …

Boot Camp is Over. Now What?

Fri Apr 09, 2010 3:53 pm by Drew

One of the worst things about boot camp is when it ends. Yes, it is wonderful to not have people yelling at you to "Hold Plank!!" for an hour, but what do you do after that in order to not lose the progress you made?

Let's get some ideas, people!

A Shot of Motivation for those in need

Fri Apr 09, 2010 5:04 pm by Drew

A couple thoughts to motivate you in the hard times.

If you quit when things get hard, you will never realize exactly what you can do and how far you can go.

The saying goes "Pain is weakness leaving the body." I'd like to add that pain is also a way to remember that you were built for more than eating and sitting. I remember some of the days that were the hardest and I HATED …

Confession Corner

Fri Apr 09, 2010 4:01 pm by Drew

Okay, so I did boot camp last year. Three of them, in fact. Since then... let's just say I fell off the wagon and haven't tried to catch it till recently.

I went from 270 (1/09) to 237 (8/09), mostly because of boot camp. However, after August, I have done very little, except run occassionally. I'm back around 255. I CONFESS!!

I know that I am not the only one. Someone else 'fess up. …

Cardio Miles?

Cardio Miles?

Post  gypsysusana on Sat Jan 23, 2010 9:19 am

Could someone please clarify how many cardio miles we can substitute when doing an extra boot camp, kick boxing class, or other class? What about when doing cardio on the Elliptical or treadmill? How do you calculate the miles, do you write down the actual miles listed on the machine or some way calculate the speed plus distance? Thanks!

how to track cardio...

Post  Bonnie on Sat Jan 23, 2010 9:49 am

Kickboxing, Step & Spin count as 3 MILES

As for doing cardio on machines, you'll just use what it says. If you run/walk outside, you need to jump in your car and map it out.

Also, there is a KILLER program for the iPhone called RunKeeper that tracks miles, pace, time, etc. It also has the option to make a program so it can tell you to speed up or slow down at set times. It's super cool!

PS: No matter what cardio you do it should AT LEAST be for 30 minutes. So if you are a faster runner - guess what? That means you need to up your miles!! Smile

tracking miles

Post  rsullivan on Sat Jan 30, 2010 10:40 pm

I have that irun app is really cool, too. If you are like me and dont have an iphone, you can check out my most recent running aid. It is the Nike sport band and I love it. It looks like and is a watch, but with a real thin band. You can pick what color band you want and everything. It has you input your weight, which you can change as you lose, and it calculates your distance, time, pace and calories burned. It comes with a little chip that goes in your shoe. The Nike plus shoes have a little receptacle under the sockliner in the heel area for it, so you dont feel it at all. I love that I dont have to go to the park or somewhere where I know for sure what the mileage is. I can try different destinations now because the band will keep track of how far I have gone along with the other data. Then, that part detaches from the band and you insert it into your USB port on your computer and it uploads all your runs to the Nike plus website where you can track your progress, set goals, even create challenges or competitions with other runners or chat, blog, whatever. You can even put in what the weather was like, what terrain you ran in, how you felt, etc. It shows you your route and graphs it all out for you so it is easy to see your progress over time. It tells you your average pace for the run and for the whole week and also tells you the cumulative calories you have burned, so that is a motivator, too. and, it only costs $59. I personally love to have a destination. If I am at the park and keep doing the same lap, every lap or half mile, there is my car again and it is so easy to just say, I am tired, I am getting back in, but if you are halfway through 5 or 6 miles, you gotta run the other 3 to get back to your car or your home, whatever. I know I have to force myself to do what needs to be done a lot of the time, LOL. Have a great week everyone. can you believe it is going to be your third week? Robin
