Hey, back in the pool! In the summer, I can make the early (5 pm) lap swim at one location; during tax season it makes sense to hit the late (8 pm) session at another pool as that's when I'm leaving work; the problem is in the in-between, when I'm working too late for one, but not long enough for the other to be convenient. Work is going to be ramping up pretty quickly for me to start making the later evening swim sometimes during the week, but I finally got myself there on the weekend anyway.
Total swimming: 1,300 yards.
Total biking: 20.2 miles
Total running: 20.0 miles
Average daily steps: 11,917
After about a year hiatus, I'm back to using my Fitbit. I have the Flex, which is rather picky in staying properly in the charger, plus it has a pretty short charge (3 to 4 days), so it felt like too much of a nuisance to keep it fully functioning. I'm realizing more and more how, even though I exercise a lot, I'm quite sedentary outside of formal workouts, and the fitbit really is good motivation to me for changing that. (And I googled and found a way to use a paperclip to hold it in the charger, that seems to be working pretty consistently.) I updated my 2016 goals post to also have a movement goal of some sort for each month - for January, I'm doing the default 10,000 steps per day.
