Great Saturday! January 7, 2012Posted by gogirlcindy in Tools & Gadgets, Training Tips.
Thanks to everyone who came out this morning, we had a great run and a nice breakfast at the cafe afterwords.
[8 runners, I think that’s a record high – and on a gloomy day to boot!!!]
Join us — check out our group on Meetup!
I thought I would share some of the things we talked about today….we learn so much from each other!
This is the news story/interview with my friend Matthew Shack who has lost over 200 lbs in the last year and half with the help of FitBit….he’s very inspiring.
- This is the Fitbit that Matt talks about in his interview,
- and the BodyBugg that Jessica mentioned,
- and a great comparison of the two in case you are interested.
- This device – The Striiv Person Trainer, was mentioned in the news story…interesting idea…I like the donation idea.
The Gruve Personal Activity Monitor…which tells you when you have be sedentary for too long. I am so tempted to get one of these! I need the kick in the pants! I found it pretty quickly on Amazon, but it is $179.95 there, and on Spoofee.com, I found it for $99.99.
Some information on swollen hands while running or walking…several people have complained of this, but I have found that extra hydration before the run is a good preventative step…but here’s what Livestrong has to say.
Wow! That’s a lot and there was more things…like events folks are training for, the Secret Stairs walks and walking or running the around reservoir, Lake Balboa and SilverLake, — it was a great morning.
