Training with my Apple Watch

Who doesn't love Mickey Mouse?!?
I've had my Apple Watch for about 2 months now and have fallen in love with a number of features.  My husband surprised me with the watch as a Christmas gift and he did a perfect job picking out the Sport Edition in Rose Gold with the lavender band.  Besides being able to get notifications, texts, emails, and view my calendar all on my wrist, one of my favorite things about the watch is the fitness and activity tracking.  During the day, I can easily see what progress I'm making toward my calorie, exercise, and stand goals as well as tracking my steps on the pedometer.

When it's time to hit the gym, I open up the workout app and select which type of workout I'm planning for that day.  Most days, that means a run for me.  Before you begin the workout, the app let's you decide what kind of workout you're completing that day - indoor run, outdoor run, outdoor walk, etc. Inside the app, I can choose to set a mileage, time, or calorie goal or just to run open-ended.  During the run, I easily swipe through to monitor my heart rate, calories burned, current pace, and distance.  Overall, I've found the during workout features to be reliable and easy to navigate.

After my run, my workouts are stored in the Activity app on my iPhone.  I'm a paper and pencil girl when it comes to my running log so I can easily transfer my information to my book.  While it's only been a few weeks, I'm really excited about the features that my watch has to offer and feel like it's having a positive impact on my overall fitness goals.  As I get more involved with my training for my May half-marathon, I'm anxious to track my progress!

I still love my Garmin Forerunner 10, but find the Apple Watch more convenient since I'm already wearing it everyday and it syncs with the steps and activity I've already been completing throughout the day. With so many options on the market, what's your favorite running watch?

  2. Thanks for stopping by Deb! While I love a lot about my watch, I think one of my favorite features is seeing Mickey tapping his foot all day long! I know my Disney loving friends understand that excitement :)

  11. To add a fourth column, reduce the size of these three columns using the right icon of each block. Then, duplicate one of the column to create a new one as a copy sleek boxes.
