Milestone Pod Giveaway

I mentally psych myself out of things before they even happen. Case and point: all day Tuesday I was telling myself how awful it was going to be to get up at 5:45 on Wednesday to get my workout in before heading into work for a few hours.

I don’t know why I do these things. Wednesday morning I had my alarm set for 5:45 but instead I naturally woke up at 5:25. Ok, so I wasn’t “hop out of bed’ awake but I just happened to wake up and check the time. Normally I would have taken this as a chance to get in 20 more minutes of sleep, but I figured why not just get at it.

I laid in bed for about 5 more minutes and then got up and got moving. I think I was psyching myself out since my work schedule changed and now I had a EARLY morning workout instead of just an easy run.

 

I ended up doing 0.25 mile warm up, 40 minutes steady hills, and then 1 mile cool down.

Hill Workout

I found 2 hills that were very close to each other and I basically ran a loop throughout the 40 minutes. I made sure to keep a steady effort.

Aside from the fog and having to be really careful that everyone could see me the run went really well.  I was so glad I made this decision because once I got off work it was almost 15 degrees hotter and direct sun.  That would have made the workout increasingly more difficult.

I am reminded once again to quit worrying and dreading things ahead of time and take them as they come. This run turned out really well!

 

I have a fun giveaway coming at you all today.

A month or so ago I was sent a Milestone Pod to try out.

What is a Milestone Pod?

Milestone Pod

(source)

The Milestone Pod attaches to your shoe through your laces.  It collects data throughout your walk or run as it senses your movement. There are no start buttons, no waiting for it to find satellite, simply no hassle.

Milestone Pod What it Does

The pod will track your mileage throughout your workout and record it.  It can be synched wirelesses through Bluetooth to your phone to collect the data from your workout. The pod itself stores up to 2 weeks of data.

What does the pod record?

The Milestone Pod records:

  • Distance, pace and cadence
  • Daily, monthly and weekly mileage
  • Compare runs to track improvements
  • Can track the miles on your shoes to see when you need to change them out

Milestone Pod Case

If you keep the pod on the same shoe you can track its life. You will know exactly how many miles you have put on that shoe and know when it is time to retire them.

It is an awesome and simple gadget for running. Sure, it is not exactly as precise as a Garmin but when you have a quick run and want to leave your watch at home it’s perfect. I love using it on easy runs specifically because there is no way to look at the pace.
