So as I write this, I am eating some Hersey’s Kisses that I stole from the freezer in the common room at the retirement home. I mean, seriously, I am stealing chocolate from seniors. In walkers. This is an example of the things that I do when I go home. I eat more, I do less, I apparently steal, and I generally regress. However, in my defense, I probably would steal chocolate from seniors while at home.
I have one of the best aps for my Android phone: CardioTrainer. Like many training aps available, it combines GPS, step counting, maps and my dimensions to calculate distance run and calories burned. It’s fantastic. It’s free.
On this trip I was determined to not regress too far. Sure, I’ll fight with my brother, but maybe I could do alright. I awake early each morning – thanks to time zone changes – and I have to make a decision each morning to exercise. And I’ve done pretty good I think.
July 25th, 2012 Extra-Ordinary: According to CardioTrainer, I’ve run 42.2 kms since we left from Huntsville. I think that is 5% of my lifetime total.
