That's right, folks! I am now a VERY happy owner of an iPhone 4. I splurged and got the Otterbox case for it, because I am one clumsy MoFo, and since I plan to take the thing running with me, I need something durable. I didn't want the Otterbox at ALL at first, because they're a little bulky. But I'm happy with my decision. And the guy who sold it to me told me I'm "definitely a pink person," so I got one in pink and black. Woo hoo!
One of the most exciting things about this new phone is that, with the iMapMyRun app, I can turn on a live tracker while I run! GPS capabilities track my route for me and! if I so choose! I can turn on "live tracking" so that others with the app/with an account can follow me along my route! How cool is that??
So, Wednesday morning, I got up super early and decided to run outside (rather than on the indoor track at the gym) so I could test out the app. Not ONLY did I love the application, but I noticed that I took an entire MINUTE off of my per/mile time! I'm still slow as molasses, but to me, this was a HUGE accomplishment!
I used the app again this morning and was about 30 seconds slower, but I also stopped to take some photos with my fancy new HD iPhone camera, so maybe that had something to do with it.
I also love that I can listen to my iPod WHILE I'm tracking. Here's today's playlist:
I nearly died when "Kill the Lights" came on. It's a tough one to keep your own pace to, if you're not used to running that fast. But it was a great motivator. AND I couldn't have planned a more perfect cool down/stretch song than "On My Knees" by Seryn. Awesomesauce.
So! Here's my weekly recap:
Saturday: Yoga in the morning
Sunday: SYTYCD "Cardio Funk" workout (nearly killed me)
Monday: Nothing. Too sore to move.
Tuesday: Nothing, because I was lazy and used my book club meeting as an excuse.
Wednesday: 2.72 miles running
Thursday: Nothing (unless sex counts. Shut up and don't look so shocked! I'm married!)
Friday: 2.69 miles running
Whew! AND!!!! AND! I lost weight! I'm down about 2lbs since last Friday, so what a fun week, huh? I'm excited to keep going!
