5k #6, Arctic Monkeys and High Speed Stuff

Monday, October 19, 2009

Did my last 5k training on Saturday. Definitely felt a difference on this last one and while running I couldn't help but recall the Ding Dongs and friends I had over the last few days before this walk/run. I've always wondered what Federer or Nadal eat before a US Open and during. Andre Agassi used to brag about eating Big Macs back in his twenties! You can pull that kind of crap in your youth but when he got into his thirties he definitely got serious about his nutrition and training and it showed with him achieving a few more majors, including the Australian Open.

Distance: 3.1 miles
Time: 38:19
Pace: 12:22 min/mile

Love this album! "Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not" Great music to work out to (Still Take You Home, Red Light Indicates Doors Are Secured). Keeps me pumped and willing to push even harder. Even like the slower tunes (Mardy Bum, Riot Van).

With winter right around the corner have you considered an emergency survival kit for your car? Me neither, but after listening to this podcast (iTunes search: "High Speed Stuff") definitely got me thinking about setting one up. Would NOT want to end up like the guy who drifted off a snow covered road, down an embankment and survived several days in his car eating nothing but... No spoilers here. Check it out...good stuff!

Initial Findings Show Incline Training an Efficient Form of Cardio Exercise

Sunday, October 18, 2009

Researcher Matt Rhea, Director of Human Movement Program at AT Still
University, has been studying the physiological benefits of Incline Training
on the FreeMotion Incline Trainer compared to training on a flat surface.
findingsdemonstrate that users may experience far greater benefits walking at an
incline versus running on a flat surface.

Demonstrated Benefits of Incline Training

"Intense aerobic training tends to burn calories from carbohydrates,
whereasIncline Training burns calories from fat more effectively. For example,
walking at 3 MPH between a 16% and 18% incline can burn 70% more fat than
running on a flat surface. Users experience less joint impact working out at an
incline at a slower pace while realizing the same or greater benefits as
high-impact running."

Good news for joints everywhere!

THANK YOU for sharing!
I don't have a treadmill but walk to a set of hills that are 0.25 miles up and down the same amount on the other side. SO if I do one "lap" of the hill, I've done half a mile uphill (steep- i'd guess it ranges in places from 15-25% grade). Anyway, there were a few months that I was marching over that hill untill i'd gone 5 miles uphill at least 3-4x/week. And those were the months during which I lost the most weight and reconditioned. It was also great training for turning me into a runner.

5K #4 (Treadmill) and a motivational quote

Thursday, October 08, 2009

Did this one on 10/06/09 but wanted to wait a few days to see if there were any improvements over the last run which left me very sore. A little soreness the day after but no as bad as #3. Walked at 3.8 mph and ran a 4 min interval at 6 and and 2 min interval at 7 mph. Breathing not as labored as earlier runs. Even held a short conversation while running at 5.2 mph (that surprised me). emoticon

Time: 38:38
Pace: 12:28 min/mile
Incline: .5%

Iím not telling you it is going to be easyóIím telling you itís going to be worth it.
