Two weeks ago I decided I would use daily mile to track my 10K workout results instead of my handy dandy pen and paper, which I also still use! Pathetic I know, but I get a huge sense of accomplishment, looking at my once blank page of paper sitting on my treadmill fill up line by line by line! No, I have never added up how many miles ran/ walked, calories burned, or time spent on my lame ole treadmill, but by writing each workout results on that paper is my way of giving myself a pat on the back.
Now back to me being a wanna be. In an attempt to complete various sections of profiles on several accounts, I came across this section on daily mile:
I am a: (pick one)
- Athlete (NOT)
- Runner (I wanna be!!!)
- Cyclist (NOPE)
- Triathlete (DEFINITELY NOT!)
- Walker (Yea I can walk!)
Kinect Adventures! is the only game we have so far, and only because it came with the package, but I promise if you do 20+ minutes (straight, no breaks!!!) you will get a bit of a workout. I started with River Rush which is a lot of jumping a walking side to side to guide your raft down the river to collect as many coins as possible. I stink at this game! After I sunk, yes sunk, after my third run for only collecting 45 coins, it was time to change 'adventures'. My adventure, reflex ridge! On this adventure you move side to side, duck, and jump to avoid being hit. You also 'strike' different poses to collect coins and the more you jump the faster you go. You will use ever ounce of energy and just about every muscle! Oh and for kicks, your picture is taken at various points in each game and saved for future viewing, which is great for a quick and ongoing laugh! And NO I will not be sharing any of mine on here! A few hours later I jumped on the treadmill to complete my walk for the day.
Today's workout results: 4.16 mile walk completed in one hour, averaged a 14:25 pace.
