Post your Workout for Today Here!

Recommended Posts

Tuesday, it is supposed to be "rest" day. But I took little vacation Friday-Monday. So here is my workout:

 

40 min, 10 miles on the exercise bike  with 1 min burst every 2-3min.

 

40 min "walk and run" -  I did 10 x 1min run intervals with 7mph and 2.5% incline. Last interval was actually 30 sec 7mph and 1 min 7.5 mph.

 

I think I am getting closer to my target W4 with 6.5mph and 3% incline....

Was ready to start wk 2 today but for whatever reason felt horrible at the gym. So did another day of wk 1, I figured better than nothing. The rest of today I have felt run down, hoping this will pass and I'll be feeling better. I really want to do this.

My legs felt tired, I was in doubt how it will go today... But CCR's oldies helped... :)

Higher speed of walking, more time of running....

 

Wednesday

 

5 Min warm up  3.6mph, 2.5% incline

 

5 x ( 3 min run - 5.8mph, 3%; 2 min walk - 3.6mph, 2.5%)

4 x ( 1 min run - 7mph, 2%, 2 min walk - 3.6mph, 2.5%)  

 

11 min cool down 3.6mph, 2.5% incline

 

Still far away from my goal 6.5mph, 3% incline for week 4, but I think I can make it now.

But I want eliminate any chance of failing, so I continue my "baby steps" approach.
