All caught up and back to normal schedule now! My legs could feel the "excessive treadmill time" from late last night during the warm up walk, but they settled in nicely!
I knew what calories I had left to burn for my goal today as I had just finished 2 times through a core circuit with the stepper! I figured I would easily hit that number during the training with the added 3 min run interval I had planned to add to the end! Well, not the case, so instead of a 4 min cool down walk to get me to 30 even minutes I ended up 9 for 35 minutes!
Here's how today looked
5 min W/U walk @ 4.0
2x through intervals of 90 sec run @ 6.0, 90 sec walk @6.0, 3 min run, 3 min walk at same pace! 1 additional 3 min run interval @6.0 and 9 min C/D walk @4.0! Overall time 35.15 and 2.75 miles! The "own zone" was a bit lower on the HRM today for the hard setting for some reason! (Range 138-152)Results: Avg hr 147, Max hr 169, Calories burned 301 generally these results would have fallen closer to in range.
I had at least a couple more intervals left in me when I hopped off! Good sign for the coming training session....W3D2 coming Friday for a full 5K day!

Hard to believe it's already the 6th month of the year...it's flying by fast, but the pounds aren't flying off!
Fitness Minutes, Miles, even Rainbows have all proven to be great goals in the past, but this month I'm taking a new approach with a calories burned daily goal!
Since eating in range is generally not a problem nor is water I'm gonna be focusing on the 583 calories burned daily (6 days) that the fitness tracker suggests! It's hard to place minutes or miles on that number because depending on the activity it could translate to 30 minutes or 75, 3 miles or 7! During the month I'll be continuing on with C25K training, incorporating circuits back into the fitness routine, and hopefully getting some "fun cardio" with swimming!
I'll only be counting planned exercise, but I plan to wear my HRM while gardening, golfing etc just to see if those activities, in addition to workouts, are placing me with too many calories out and not enough in! There has to be a method to the madness of while the scale isn't moving and I'm determined to figure that out! I figure a couple weeks and I should have an indication of if/where the CICO need to be adjusted if at all!
