Ever since I started using the office gym more, I have been very sad about the fact that I am working my arse off (hopefully literally) and my fitbit is only showing half the steps that a run would garner me. I mentioned it on Twitter and a friend of mine told me she wears hers on her sock when she cycles. Brilliant.
So I tried that today...clipping it to the outside of my shoe.
and same # of steps as when I clipped it to my waist or shirt hem.. ARGH!
So I dialed up the tension on the bike (or whatever you call pushing that button until it's harder. I suppose dialing is a bit old school nowadays) and plugged myself into a couple more episodes of Arrested Development.
Loving this, though it may be a bit too funny for gym workouts...luckily the gym was practically empty today.
I even managed to get a little selfie to prove it was me putting in the work
Ok - I look a little demented there...eep
In the end - it worked out to 40 mins on the bike. Not as many miles as Monday, but I did make it considerably harder so it all balances out.
I was thoroughly sweaty and disgusting when I was done but that is all good. Thank goodness for baby wipes and curly hair...makes it easy to look (and smell) somewhat office presentable after...
