WorkIt Wednesday : Announcing...

Hello Neighbors!

Here is the news I have promised to announce this Wednesday...

My two sisters (H. and M.) and I are participating in the SGMA Hall of Fame 5K Run!

SGMA Hall of Fame 5K

Okay, so we play all sorts of sports (volleyball, racquetball, etc.), take TaeKwonDo, etc., but we haven't done a whole lot of running.  Just about two weeks ago the three of us saw this and decided to sign up and start training.  

Current Sponsors :
  • FlipBelt
  • runninGluv
  • FitSok
  • LaceLockers
  • BolderBands
  • Words to Sweat By
  • Ozeri
  • MaxFlow Sports
  • TrailHeads
  • Modest Poppy
  • BottleBand
Okay, so now I'll tell you a little bit about our training.  Five days a week the three of us head out for a run.  We started out with intervals of 1 minute run, 1 minute walk, etc. and have slowly upped it.  We have had a couple of cooler mornings, but other than that it has been pretty hot.  We come back dripping with sweat, and threaten mom with hugs.  :)

Here are a couple products that have been really nice to have during training...

The Ozeri Pedometer has been really helpful.  It not only counts steps, but mileage, time, calories, etc.  It counts the steps pretty accurately and it comes with a belt clip to clip unto a belt or waistband.

Another sponsor's product/s that have been great is FitSok's sports socks that they sent.  I received two packs of socks, and have had several pairs "borrowed" by my sisters.

FlipBelt is a must have for any walker/runner.  It is a belt that has a single tubular pocket with four openings (two in the front and two in the back).  It is really nice to stick a phone, mp3 player, cash, etc. into the pockets and know that everything is safe.

MaxFlowSports sent me a pair of Low Show Women's Performance Socks, and a Cross-Grip Hairband.  I have to tell you.  The first day we used these, one sister took the pair of socks, and one sister took the headband.  My little sister (M) is loving the headband for any sports we do.

I'll be back next WorkIt Wednesday with more products that I have been using for training, as well as a review or two!  See you At the Fence!

Polar FA20 Activity Watch Review and Giveaway

Hi Neighbors, Well, I am out of the hospital, but I am not allowed to be very active yet, so I asked my daughter to test out this new item. It is an Activity Watch. What a great item for Get Out Get Active! The Polar FA20 counts your daily physical activity. First you need to set the basic information. The date, units (metric or imperial), your weight, height, birth date, and male or female. Place the FA20 on your wrist to measure your physical activity 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This watch monitors your activity and gives you feedback about how you are doing. Everyone should be physically active at least 30 minutes each day, and the FA20 helps you achieve this. Throughout your day you can check and see if you are having a Lazy Day (active less than 30 minutes), Easy Day (active 30 to 60 minutes), Active Day (active 60 to 75 minutes) or an Intensive Day (active more than 75 minutes). You can also record your training sessions to learn more about how your body respon

Omron Heart Rate Monitor Review and Giveaway

Hey Neighbors, Another great product for the Get Out and Get Active! An Omron Heart Rate Monitor ($59.99)! Once again due to my disc problem my daughter was the one to try this out. This is seriously not fair! Anyway, one of the great things about a heart rate monitor is that you can make sure you are exercising in your zone. You can monitor your heart rate and then adjust your pace for either a slower workout or a more intensive workout. This monitor comes witha high and low alert so you can make sure you stay right where you are supposed to. Not overdoing it, yet not taking it too easy! You can wear the wrist receiver on your wrist, or you can mount it on your bike or treadmill so it is easy for you to read. This Omron Heart Rate Monitor comes with: 1-Wrist Receiver Watch 1-Transmitter 1-Transmitter Strap (Chest size 29" to 55") 1-Receiver Mounting Bracket 1-Storage Case 2-"Lithium" Batteries (installed) 1-Instruction Manual (Above nice carry cas
