  1. Personally - I re-did the days I had trouble with. I'd play different music and take a different route. Don't stop though. The important part of all of this is that you are going out and doing something with a set goal. Others may echo my sentiments here....week 5 day 3 will look scary but I actually feel that the first 3 weeks are the toughest especially if you are new to doing this. At the end of week 1 I wasn't sure I was going to make it through. May last time out, I ran a 5K distance. You can do it.

    scared of starting week 3!

    Chinebo DONT focus on the time it takes to compete an interval. Just keep moving. I thought week three was gonna kill me too but I'm proud to say I ran a 5k distance tonight. It's the gains you make in week 3,4,5 that will pay dividends in week 7,8. I'm the laziest person I know when it comes to exercise so if I can do this....you can too!

    Week 8 Day 1 Slayed!!!

    Totally! Had a victory dinner of a wonton soup and beer for dinner when I finished....lol! I'm down 36 pounds from when I started. Feeling much different.
  7. 28 minutes, 4.6 Km. I'm getting close to ditching the time interval and just going for distance. I actually felt I could have kept going another few minutes tonight but didn't want to overdo it.

    Jawbone/Nike/FitBit

    Settled in on a jawbone up24. Satisfied so far. It's comfortable and doesn't get in the way and seems to just work. I've played around with the IFTTT app and have a few custom reminders and actions paired up. Pretty interesting stuff.

    Thermal iPhone case

    tried to do week 7 day 1 last night. Unfortunately my iPhone succumbed to the cold (it was 12 outside) and shut itself down before I could finish. I lost tracking ability and stopped around 21 minutes. Anyone know of a thermal case for an iPhone? Doesn't need headphone holes as I use wireless headphones. Otherwise I'm gonna stick it in a thinsolate glove and cram it in my pocket!!!

    Good info. I still have some research to do but will reply back here with my final choice.

    who has/uses what, and what are your impressions? I'm looking at buying one of these primarily as a sleep tracker for my apnea. What are your thoughts on these devices?
