NordicTrack’s Commericial 1750 treadmill was the treadmill I chose at the beginning of summer. The main pros to it were the fans. I get really hot when I run and so having the fans at the top but also at waist level/core area was vital. I love the aux input for listening to music through the speakers. The ipad holder is great for watching netflix. Another favorite part is being able to customize a run using Google Maps. This allows me to run my favorite routes from college or my hometown. I still have yet to run over 2 miles on the treadmill, because it’s definitely something to get used to. Different than running on the road which is what I favor. However, I knew I would want an alternative on the days I want to run and it’s too hot, rainy, or snowing. I like having the option to still run. Doesn’t mean I always take advantage of it! Ha! But I would definitely recommend this treadmill to anyone!
Here’s what a summary from running a route at home looked like.
Square Organic Bars
I had my first Square Organic Protein bar at the Chiefs snack section in their dining facility. It was the Chocolate Coated Crunch. I fell in love. So delicious! I love these bars because they are light. When you bite into it, it’s almost like air bubbles inside, but packed with chocolaty flavor and crunch. The Chocolate Coated Nuts and Sea Salt one is really good as well. I have yet to try the rest of the flavors, as I have been snacking on our produce, so it doesn’t go bad. If you want to give these guys a try, they set up an account for my nutrition consulting business (shout out if you want to work together, go visit!,) but the coupon code will get you 20% off! 20% off Square Organics Code: STHIERRY
If you remember from my post on my mother’s birthday about things we both love, you will know notebooks and office supplies are our jam. If you don’t remember, then you can hop back over there and read all about that! You will also know I’m a big Project Life/Becky Higgins Fan. Well they have just launched Simple Notebooks and I just LOVE them! They are affordable too at 7.99 a piece.
On Monday I ran 3.7 miles. I had plans to run throughout the week, but I just didn’t feel like it and that was okay. I ran on Saturday, but only 1.2 miles as I wanted to make a smoothie and needed some orange juice. So I ran a mile then ran to Walgreen’s and walked home. I also did a Nike Training Club workout and am going to start incorporating those into my weeks.
I was trying to find a race to increase my motivation to get out of the door and put solid training in, but just couldn’t find one that was worth the money. Now that I have limited funds, I have to be choosy. I was looking at the Hot Chocolate race series because they normally have great swag, however I wasn’t a fan of the pullover. If it looked like the Magnificent Mile jacket then I would’ve signed up ASAP.
*excuse the language, as always.
Q: What have your been doing for workouts? Tried Nike Training Club?
