I am terribly sorry to carry on like this - I know all this Sporty Spice / Running Barbie stuff is very boring but bare with me -I am sure the enthusiasm will settle after a while.
I need some more advice: I want to buy a thingy (watch?) that I can use to motivate myself further. I would like something that will measure the distance I run as well as the time I run for when I run on the treadmill. And maybe other interesting info like speed etc. It would also be interesting to have a heart rate monitor thingy so that I can track my fitness level. I would like to be able to sync it to a website as easily as possible so that I can spam all of you with my achievements. Not too bulky or fussy, remember that I don't wear a watch at all, or any jewelry (sensory issues) so I will need to get used to having something on my arm. Would prefer not to pay huge sums of money obviously as we don't know how long this fad is going to last. If it could cook, clean and offer to do blow jobs as well, that would be great.
Any advice or recommendations?
PS I ran another 5kms this morning, improving on my time by 1 full minute (but still being conscious of sticking to the SLOW pace of the arthritic sloth as recommended by Doctor Mama.) Her approach really REALLY works. I can't even begin to tell you which a significant difference it has made to my motivation, my enthusiasm, my breathing, my stamina, my results. So simple and so effective.
PPS It is quite off putting when you are running as fast as an arthritic sloth to have the misfortune of having the equivalent of a hamster on speed running next to you. OMG! Way to look like you are running in slow motion. Luckily the hamster moved on fairly quickly.
