Not just another Word Press blog!

Monday..what a fun day!

Monday started out Sunday night with a dead computer! The motherboard went bad in our computer late Sunday night. I was hoping it was the power supply, but, a great new find, Farnes computer repair, who just happens to be a block away from the house, came over in the afternoon with two new power supplys, plugged both in and “no bueno”! A quick test later and the diagnosis was in, dead motherboard! Now, I had to decide to either fix this one or get a new computer. I got a new Dell Inspiron 620. Last night, I swapped the hard drive from the old computer in, added a cd/dvd burner from our old computer, and then, installed the proper drivers, and we are up and running! Although this computer has 6 gb of memory, I have ordered two 4 gb memory sticks to get a total of 8 gb for the computer. This computer certainly is faster and a lot quieter than the old one was!

Now, on to the food diary:

Today was a heavy day in the gym with the chest and arms workout above. The big news, the treadmill!

Workout Summary

Workout type Manual Cool down
Equipment Treadmill Elapsed time 2
Date April 28, 2012 Average speed (mph) 3.1
Time Maximum Speed (mph) 3.1
User Data Distance (miles) 0.1
Age 51 Calories 12

Elapsed time 24.46 Average heart rate 160
Average heart rate 160 Maximum heart rate 199
Maximum heart rate 199 Average speed (mph) 5.4

Maximum Speed (mph) 8 Average pace (miles) 9.54
Average pace (miles) 9.54 Distance (miles) 2.6
Distance (miles) 2.5 Calories 477
Calories 465

As you can see, a 9:54 pace for 2.5 miles. It looks like now, a 6 mph pace is good. 7 or 8 mph is very easily possible in the near future. We are in the process of looking for some races, a 5K first to actually get some real world running experience in. This rain is horrible as everything is flooded.

Tomorrow will be another 2 miles on the treadmill and a leg workout.
