W6D2 and the IPhone 3GS

So, I ran W6D2 yesterday. It was pretty uneventful. I must say, it is harder to run on my treadmill than it is to run anywhere else, including outside. I also realized I am looking forward to W6D3 because it is a straight run. Say what?!?!?! Yes, you read it right. I like getting into a rhythm and and just going. I don't want to start and stop. It is hard to get going again.

But this week and last week my thinking is kinda skewed. I am "squeezing" time to work out. Funny how I don't think I am squeezing time to brush my teeth or take a shower or watch Rate My Space. I don't want to lose my momentum. They say the busiest weeks at a gym are the first six weeks of a new year. People, trying to fulfill New Year's Resolutions, will usually stop after six weeks.

That is why I am glad I have all my online running friends, wonderful blogs to inspire me, my Nike + and my Polar F6. I am surrounded by motivation and encouragement.

But the best news, drum roll please, the new IPhone 3GS has Nike+ built in software. Yes, you read that right. If you run outside and like to use the Nike + but also like to carry your phone, now you can do both... in one device. That is right, apparently they saw my review of the Nike + and hating that it was not compatible with my Iphone and the acted immediately. I am kidding. But I am sure there are many Nike + users celebrating. Now if I can just convince my husband that a new IPhone is beneficial to my health and safety.

Nike also launched their new running site. I haven't played with it much but you can be sure that I will share any information that I can.


  1. Rozette, you can do this and you won't lose momentum. We all have good and bad days. It sounds like you have a great family support system and like you are doing it for you. We can all stick together and ensure no one gets lost along the way!

  2. Scrap - - we all struggle to "fit" it in...but I truly believe that as long as we do our best to be consistent over the long run, we WILL be successful. Look at how far you've are doing awesome and will continue to grow as a runner. Thanks so much for having this truly helps me in my running journey. keep up the great work!

  3. Keep up the good work Rozette - You are almost through! Have you signed up for a race yet? THAT will keep your momentum going.

    I bet you will be a distance runner like me. I like to get in my zone and just go. That's why I don't do much formal speedwork. And, I really wasn't impressed with the 5K race distance and could really care less how fast I ever run it ha ha - which is why I probably haven't done any more since last October! I would like to do a 10K, and I think 5 or 10 milers would be fun...but I'm all about the long run. Sounds like you will be too!

    Sometimes I have to get up at 4:30 or 5 am to get the run in when I know I have something going on in the evening...I felt like a freak at first, but now I love that early morning 'quiet' - I go to work feeling like I've done something special, and I don't stress all day about the run!

  4. Thank you for all your comments. I am so glad to have all of you cheering me on!!
