So, it was not a bad week but it was not ideal. I did not get in 3 days of cardio. (I should mention that my bike ride to work is only one mile and on the way there it is downhill. So it's not really on my radar for cardio...just good ole activity) I would really like to blame it on b
eing away from home more often, but alas, I blogged that there is a YMCA mere miles from me. BUT I did something and I am hoping to go Tuesday morning For a run, if I can get up and go, either 30 min outside or 3miles at the gym. The up side of being out in the burbs though is the fact that my sleep schedule is getting back to getting up earlier and it is easier!! Very happy about that.




Online Fitness Log:
OK, so I got the website to open and snagged a few things to share with you, still a thumbs down to it! The site is straight forward, but the log is attached to a month view calendar so to navigate you have to go day to day, you can not get a look at a week view on the calendar or even month view. No entries show up on the calendar, you have to click into the day and it will take you to the entry of that day. If you have more than one entry on a day, you have to navigate tabs across the top and it is very disjointed. You only get a snap shot of your entire week in graph form and the cardio and strength graphs are separate.

Limited month view:


The cardio maps out your distance on the days logged, not time or calories expended even. I guess for a graph I was looking for it to depict more information. It was simple but not user friendly. You could punch in your information but really there was no good way to get an overall view of the week and your progress. But if you like pop up windows every 4 minutes, give it a try.

Here are a few images of the user pages:
Not helpful graph #1:


Me, I am on to the next: www.Internettraininglog.com. I can tell I will like it already, you can manage the millage on your shoes!! Perfect for my new Kicks! Shazaam! I tracked everything in there in advance and I am aiming for 4 runs and 2 strength training days! We'll see how I do.
