How’s that for a post title?!

Last night I made some quick purchases at Dicks Sporting Goods online running shop. I got a new waterproof Spibelt. My other one is a few years old and seems to not be so waterproof anymore =)I also got some socks and the most essential summer running gear item ever….Bodyglide to combat the chafing (i got a larger stick and some smaller portable tubs to take along with me!!!!

This morning was tough for me to get up. I had this muppet giving me his “can you call in sick so we spoon all day ma?” look.

Good morning!

Work was busy. My boss is on vacation and I’m trying to just “get ‘er done” without disturbing him. =) Both my morning and evening commutes flat out blew chunks! Seriously, close to 2 hours each way. The evening commute gifted me this fellow commuter who FELL ASLEEP ON ME!!!! EEEEWWWWW!!!!

he’s squishing me!

OK enough of the odds n ends. On to my ergonomic enigma! I sit for many hours at work and my back and neck don’t like it. I have tried cushions on the seat. No good. I’m now thinking that I want to try one of those wacko exercise ball chairs. Like this one. I hope that will be the answer. My core is so weak. Perhaps this will help me with my posture and strengthen my core.

Today was a rest day. I’m going to run 4 tomorrow.

Question: Has anyone ever gone the exercise ball chair route? Thoughts?

  1. This one is cheaper: http://www.amazon.com/Gaiam-Balance-Ball-Chair-Black/dp/B0007VB4NE I used to have just the ball (not the chair part) and loved it. I no longer even have a desk though, otherwise I’d probably still use it. (I only have a laptop, so I use it where ever I am, hubby has a desk.) Sitting for too long is bad either way, set a phone alarm and just make sure you get up at least once an hour. =) Definitely has helped me working at a desk job.

  2. thanks! I am going to do the alarm tomorrow. That’s a great immediate thing to do.
