1,000 November 21, 2012Posted by indigobunting in Uncategorized.
I go to the gym. I bike. I ice skate. I take walks. I do yoga. I am dabbling in tai chi. Sometimes Tim gets me to try to balance on a moving skateboard.
And I still work out on my NordicTrack CX 990 elliptical cross trainer.
I’ve often sung its praises in the pages of this blog. I had to replace a wheel a couple of years ago—an overpriced part that turned out to be completely worth it. I celebrated its 500th workout back in 2008 (I say its because other people account for maybe 5–10 workouts). Even then, I was happy that it had served me so long and well.
Yesterday, it hit 1,000.
So, if I were to repeat that celebratory 500 announcement, simply filling in new numbers, it would go something like this:
A beloved member of my Route 153 household today celebrates the reaching of a milestone in a decimal society. My NordicTrack CX 990 elliptical cross trainer—age approximately 7 years, 10 months—has provided its 1,000th workout.
NTCX990, I still love you.
And to my blog friends: I’m sorry I’m a workout nerd. I just am.
Now, off to 1,001.
