Couch to 5k: Day one

July 20, 2010 1 comment

I officially started the Couch to 5k plan today.

Warm up: 5 mins (3.0mph)
Run: 60 seconds (4.4mph)
Walk: 90 Seconds (3.0mph)
Total time: 25 mins
Additional walk: 1 min (2.0pmh)
Total Distance 1.46 miles
~140 calories burned

In the middle of it my treadmill decided to jump up to 10mph. That was a speed that wasn’t for today.

Sidenote: I totally won Swagbucks three times today! I love when that happens.


Swag Bucks

April 4, 2010 Leave a comment

So, after seeing swagbucks on lots of different blogs I’m reading, I finally broke down and signed up.

Here is how it works:

You sign up and use the swag bucks search bar or home page for doing your normal internet searching. Swag bucks then randomly reward you for searching with “swagbucks” and you can redeem them for stuff. They have gift cards, electronics, and lots of other things.

In two days, I’ve earned 55 and haven’t even really done anything. It takes a lot more to get stuff, but it might be worth it for amazon gift cards. I’ll keep track of how many I earn in a month and see how quickly it adds up.  You also earn them faster when people sign up through your referral link. We’ll see if its worth it.

I’ve earned most of them just for having the swagbucks toolbar downloaded, but I’m not sure how much I like it (the toolbar).

Anyone used Swagbucks? Have any comments on it?

Search & Win
