I became a Biggest Loser fan around this time last year – no idea why I started watching it, but for whatever reason, I totally get motivation from these people!
I suppose traditionally sports and geeks don’t always mix – but I think it’s pretty geeky to do what I’m doing with some iPhone apps!
Getting my dog Admiral Ackbar turned me into someone who walks everyday now, and for quite a while, I was also running with him with the help of Couch to 5k! If you don’t know what Couch to 5k is, it’s a training program to help ANYONE start to run! I’ve never thought of myself as a runner and this program helped me get all the way to 10ks!
Now, I moved a while back and got pretty busy and stopped running. I decided to give it another go, but I also missed using my Nike+ from my iPod nano. Well, Nike just announced Nike+ GPS app! Combined with iOS4, I can run both apps which allows me to:
- Map my run
- See how far I ran
- How many calories I burned
- And get the training I like with the C25k program.
You should totally give this a try if you’re looking to try or get back to running and keep track of your stats like a geek 😉
Purple Sports Bras
I figure that purple is a good cross between finding blue bras and pink bras – plus when you mix those colors you get, well, lilac.
Workouts aren’t fun – but at least they can be colorful?
