1,000 November 21, 2012

Posted 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.

You’re so good! I go to the gym, and on nice days (like today) I go on a walk (which, living in a hilly suburb, is a bit more strenuous than it sounds). But I’m pretty sure I’m not as as dedicated as you. I wish I was. (I know I’m not as slim and fit as you).

Bravo on 1000!

Are you sure you’re exercising moderately rather than excessively? Restrain thyself!

Love, Epicurus

I’m no athlete. I rarely challenge myself. Pure maintenance.

Wow! Congratulations!
