2013 is just days away, and I am still driving a regular car. When the heck are we getting spaceships to go with the rest of our cool gadgets?
I received an especially cute and useful gadget from h.h. gregg just before Christmas: a Polar FT4 heart rate monitor watch. While I haven’t firmly set my goals and resolutions for 2013 yet (you know me, Last Minute Larry), I know making the most of my workouts will be among them. That’s one element of crossfit-ing that I know will help my running and other workouts. When I am in the box, whether the WOD is 45 minutes or 10 minutes, I do my best to work as effectively and intensely as possible. When I’m alone at the gym, or out on the road? I tend to not push myself as hard. After just a few runs wearing the FT4, I had a better sense of what it feels like to really (to quote Salt N Pepa) pa-pa-pa-push it, and what it feels like to sufficiently warm up and cool down (something else I tend to neglect when there’s not someone standing by bossing me around).
Whether it’s a heart rate monitor, the screen on the rower, a fitness tracker or a plain ol’ pen and paper, I find these things really help with accountability and ultimately, progress towards my goals. The lovely people at h.h. gregg want to help us reach our fitness goals in 2013 and have just launched their New Year’s Solution on Facebook, featuring fabulous giveaways today (12/28) through January 7th.

A $100 h.h. gregg giveaway
If you live in the Midwest or Southeast, you’re likely familiar with h.h. gregg stores. The rest of us can visit their website on our smartphones, while we walk around our condos and touch random stuff, and pretend we’re in a real store. Oh. That’s not how you shop online? Weird. Welp, regardless, one of you will win a $100 gift card to h.h. gregg – perfect for spending on gear to help you reach your 2013 goals. I will select a random winner on New Year’s Day. To enter, please leave a comment below.

UPDATE: Congratulations to Stacie! Many thanks to h.h. gregg, and to each of you for entering. Best wishes for a very happy and healthy 2013.
After a year of on-again off-again running injuries I would like to shoot for a injury free year and run a half marathon. Like you, I tend to not warm-up and cool-down like I should and winning this giveaway would help curb such a bad habit….errr start running properly again.
Thanks to you and H.H. Gregg for the giveaway! Happy New Year!
