  • Day 3 – and the catch-up

    Posted on January 22nd, 2009 Scott 2 comments

    So I get down to the gym and these womenz that like to watch celebrity fit club are walking on the treadmills and using the elliptical machine. SUCK! The silly stationary bike is broken, so I get disgruntled, grab my badge and go running. Hey … whatever works (or something). I ran “around the block” at work Turns out to be a little over 2.1 miles. Reasonably hilly – so it was a good workout. I finished off the day with 3 sets on 5 upper body machines.

    That last 2 days were elliptication and weights. The streak is in it’s infancy, but at least it EXISTS! Now… back to work. I probably stink or something.

  • That not so fresh feeling

    I had it, but I’ve done some stuff to change that.  I’ve updated my blog theme and re-organized the side a bit.  The key thing I’ve done is integrated my twitter stuff.  For those of you who haven’t found twitter yet, you have now!  Twitter is a platform for what is called “micro-blogging”.  You are limited to 140 characters – you can basically comment or say what you are doing how.  You can find my twitter feed @ http://twitter.com/scottpatton if you are so inclined.  You can do all kinds of cool stuff like update it with your cell sync it with your facebook and your blog.  There are TONS of people on there including our new president, Lance Armstrong, friends, family and people you couldn’t POSSIBLY care about… It’s there if you want to use it!

    As you may have picked up if you are following me on FB or any other place, the quest for fitness has been rekindled.  I hate to admit it, but I lack the fire I had last year.  I have this feeling (right now) like “I did this last year…. why do it now… only to have to do it again”.  I mean, how many times have I (and kabillions of other people) lost a butt load of pounds, FELT SO FREEKING GOOD…. only to start eating like you used to, forgetting to work out…. bleh… it’s painful to think about.

    Last year, I got motivated and ran a streak of 50+ days with intentional exercise.  I’m at 2 right now.  2… 50+ more to go.  The cool thing I have going for me is that Sarah is now gearing up for her next Team in Training event.  She will be riding the “Fletcher Flyer” in June.  Yes, I said RIDING!  I’m very excited to have her doing a sport I can easily support her in her efforts.  I will also be riding the Flyer with her.  We have a few months to get ready for the 100 mile jaunt around North Carolina.  I’ve ridden a Century in Pennsylvania, Maryland and Florida.  Time to add NC!
