Weekly Wrap..Feb 25

On Monday my new iFit modules arrived and I was eager to set it up to see if THIS ONE actually would work. It was a success. 

 Since it was Presidents day, I chose to do the Presidential run around the monuments. I didn't get to record how far this was because guess what? My treadmill stopped right in the middle of the run!  The belt stopped and the screen went completely black!  I was shocked, this has NEVER happened before.  I unplugged it, rebooted, and started on it again to finish out the mile I was in. Guess what? As soon as that mile was finished, the treadmill shut off again.
Scott seems to think that something with the module is messing with the treadmill.  I have no idea but I hope that is not the case.

On Tuesday I took my run outside since it was warm. I wore my #PinkPawLove shirt and Fabletics capris but really could have worn shorts!

Wednesday was clearly the best run of the week (or perhaps the whole year at this point). We had a preview of summer weather. I definitely wore my shorts and should have probably worn a tank instead of a short sleeve shirt.  I did my normal route around the island and across the bridge, but added some out and backs to it.

I knew in my mind that it was going to be more than my normal 3 miles but wasn't sure how far it would be. I decided that I wouldn't stop when I hit a certain mileage on my watch, but would stop when I completed the entire route.  Usually I stop at three miles regardless to where I am on the route and usually have to walk a little bit back to my car.  This time I was at 4.5 miles when I made it back to my car,  However, I decided since it was so nice out that I would push it to an even 5 miles!

Do you remember last fall when I wrote a post called "Cat Burglar on the Run"?  Well, on this run on Wednesday I looked to see if those cats were still there under the bridge, and I saw one of them.  I also met the guy who was taking care of those cats. He said he came and fed them every day this winter! Apparently they still live there because there is a little cave under the bridge.

Thursday was a rest day and Friday it rained all day so I tried the Treadmill again. This time I couldn't even get the routes to load up. I couldn't even tell you how far I got on this run because the machine kept stopping again. It was a lot of trial and error and we discovered that it was indeed the cassette module that is making my treadmill turn off. When I take the cassette out of the treadmill, it works fine.

Saturday I was up bright and early with the intentions of calling Icon Fitness to get this Treadmill thing workout out YET AGAIN! I thought if I was the first caller of the morning, I wouldn't have to be on hold so long.  Turns out, they aren't open on Saturdays. So guess what I'll be spending my entire Monday afternoon doing?  I will call at 3:40 and I will predict that I won't even get anyone on the phone till 4:40. Fair assumption?  I was so frustrated with the whole treadmill thing I decided I was going to run outside, but it was really a little too foggy to be safe.  I went back in and just walked a few miles on the treadmill while I read my book. I figured I'd run outside later, but I never did. We ended up getting ready for the day and doing those weekend errands (grocery, Target, hardware store, etc).   

The weather is looking pretty good this week as we enter March so I suppose I won't need the treadmill anyway (unless it rains), but it's still something I want to get taken care of. Hopefully I'll have good news about it for the next weekly wrap!  -M

L.A Marathon : Race day in pictures

Last Sunday I ran the L.A Marathon, my first race of the year! On race morning I kept debating what to where, capris or  a  skirt? Arm sleev...
