Default Fitness victories!!!

I know people are sharing fitness NSV's ... but thought it might be quite inspirational to see them in one thread.

Here's mine: This past week or so I no longer feel a consuming sense of dread when a coach or trainer says "Shuttle runs"

This past week I surpassed 100,000 earned Nike Fuel points with my Nike FuelBand that I've been using religiously to track activity for the last month... And on top of my running and all the other stuff I've been doing to be "more active" I've managed to average well over 10,000 steps a day since I got the thing... I think I'm secretly addicted... Lol...

That's so good, y'all. C25K is amazing. Gatorgirl - that is fantastic! (I still hate your football team...grrrr).

Tripswitch - tell me more about the fuelband. I have been tracking some of my activity in RunKeeper, but it doesn't take account of other stuff I do - like rugby training, etc.

Ha! Cheryl. I never said I didn't HATE them. I still hate them. But I no longer want to shout "I QUIT!!! No, not just the shuttle run EVERYTHING" But in much more colourful language before they even start. Show me a person that loves shuttle runs and I'll show you a person that needs smacking. There's a reason people get an evil glint in their eye when they order you to do shuttles. Rugby training shuttles are awful...you have to throw yourself down into the mud at every cone. Bless my teammate Foxy who managed to negotiate us down to just the cones out and not the starting cone as well last time!

AlmostMe... The FuelBand is like a little rubber bracelet that you wear and it tracks activity, and steps... and estimates calories burned as well... And whatever activity you do you also earn Nike fuel points... So you set a daily goal and you go out do whatever to earn them... So I've found that pretty addictive and I'll just do a lot of extra stuff just to earn more "fuel" during the course of the day... Sort of gimmicky I know, but for the most part I'm finding it pretty fun... And from what I can gather from the way the thing works it should work well for earning "fuel" points from an activity like rugby with all the movement and running around, and it would give you estimates of steps taken and calories burned for it too...

(Currently doing Chalean Extreme)

I get excited and happy when Chalene says 'push ups'!!! Never thought I'd love doing them.

I remember when my only goal was to have a 200# 1RM deadlift, and now I can do a couple at 225#, AFTER doing lighter working sets. And my working sets of 6-8 are 210.

AlmostMe - 2 things. 1. We will have to agree to disagree on football. I practically bleed orange and blue. 2. I was not expecting rugby to be mentioned. I honestly never expect it to come up, because it rarely does in the states. I took it out of my signature, but it used to say "break a leg, play rugby." ... Because I did. In any case, what position do you play? I was a lock.

Gatorgirl - I just bleed pure orange. Southern by birth, Vol by the grace of God. (Although I have felt pretty tested lately.) I live in SW London now - and my club is one of the founding clubs of the RFU.

I suppose somebody has to go in the 2nd row. I'm a prop. I'm 42 and I just started this year. Love it!! Wish I'd played earlier....cos I won't have a long career. But I have a son who's 5 and definitely made for the forward pack. I don't want to push him too hard, but I hope he sticks with it. I'm working on building up my coaching qualifications, and my long term goal is to be fit enough to ref kids' games, so hopefully I'll have a long association with the sport. There aren't any women coaches in my club, and I want to be able to support girls in the sport even though I don't have daughters.

My major fitness victory is to play a whole match -which I did last week. But I feel like a failure because I held back. We had no subs, were down to 14 and I wanted to save myself for scrummaging. I nearly cried in the locker room at the end of the match because I didn't give everything.

Tripswitch, I don't think I'd be allowed to wear it even in training. Certainly not in a match. Too much risk of injuring myself or someone else.

Jez - I'm so impressed by your lifting!! I'm not working on weights right now, but I sure will be as soon. My trainer and I are planning to go straight into pre-season training when rugby season ends.

I had to look up shuttle runs because I had never heard of them. Oh, they do not look fun!!

I ended March with an 11 mile walk on Saturday and an 8 mile run before Easter dinner yesterday. Between walking and running I've traveled 159.29 for the month and 390.70 so far this year!!

I squatted 165 pounds for four sets of 15 reps today. I was so excited that I almost crushed myself on the last rep giving myself a mental high five... while looking insane and constipated pushing it back up lol. On Friday I'm shooting for 10 reps of 170.


^^^whoops I meant yesterday.
