Breaking fitness activities into 15 min. intervals -- WONDERFUL IDEA!!!
Monday, February 21, 2011
I must share the message I just sent to our 10K Steps a Day team leader:
Guess how many steps I did today!??? So far, 10063, and it 's not quite bedtime yet!
This amazing breakthrough occurred after I saw a recommendation on Sparks for breaking fitness into 15 minute intervals. So, instead of trying to do the one or two miles on the treadmill all at once, I broke it into 15 intervals. In between, I did other things around the house that were on my "to do" list!
It made it so easy to get the 10,000 steps! My titanium hip did not start hurting because it got that rest in between sessions. I did not get bored, wondering "how much longer do I have to do this?" And I found I was looking forward to the next "session" and getting back on the treadmill.
Hallelujah! Joy! At last I have broken through the fitness performance barrier!
Since joining the site/team on January 5th, this is the FIRST TIME I have gotten my 10,000 steps for the day!
