Weekend Warriors go Digital

The fitness tracking device members of my weekend bike crew laughed knowingly when my phone buzzed over lunch telling me that I’d reached (exceeded) my fitness goal for the day. It tracks steps and active minutes. While there may be weekdays I miss, weekends never. Today instead one of hour of activity, I logged 3:42.

Eighty km bike rides will do that.

David got out his phone and showed us the life of a “weekend warrior” quantified. Even bar, even bar, even bar, and then the weekend, two big spikes in physical activity.

It’s funny. I don’t think of myself as a typical weekend warrior because I do some physical training most days. But my fitness device tells a different story. It shows about an hour of activity a day–that’s my goal–and then 3-5 hour chunks each day on the weekend.

How about you fellow fitness tracking people? Are you weekend warriors as well?


This was posted and scheduled by past me. I’m actually away this week riding in the the 18th Annual Friends For Life Bike Rally. The Bike Rally is the sustaining fundraiser for the Toronto People With AIDS Foundation (PWA). Your donation helps PWA to fund services for thousands of men, transmen, transwomen, women and children living with HIV/AIDS.

You can sponsor me here.

All donations over $20 will receive a charitable tax receipt.

  1. Mine currently looks the opposite because of small kids and working husband. That means workouts are squeezed into early mornings M-F and then weekends off.
