    Google MapMyRun; Pilates

    Hi, gang. So glad to see all the activity here.

    Don't know if anyone's tried this (I can't get it to work; may be my location) but the concept is great: it uses Google Maps to give all you power walkers and runners a better workout.

    You input your route points on a virtual map, then your height, weight, etc., and it'll calculate distance, time, and calories burned. You'll need the Google Map program that now comes free bundled with the browser.

    It's here if you want to give it a try: MapMyRun.com. Fun!

    Pilates: I'm a big fan and attend classes at our club occasionally, but to be honest, do more at home with a CD because of my schedule. I've tried a number of different programs but a recent favorite is Laura Hudson's 10 Minute Solution. Really dig it. Five workouts you can mix and match on your DVD player beforehand--it's fabulous, love everything about her. Whether you have ten minutes or an hour, you can make this fit your day.

Highly recommend it. And sure does tighten up that butt and tummy!

    IJi I have a pilates machine you can Google it and find lots of retailers I bought one for 300.00 but I think you can find. them for200.00 and then up but a basic macine is great. I have had my 3 years and it still works fine. It works with streching and pulling using your core (stomach) muscles as your center of gravity. I also have a bow flex but I think this is better because you build long lean muscle rather than bulk A whole body workout takes me 25 minutes. Hope this helps
