Today is a new day
Tuesday, May 08, 2012
Over the weekend I didn't track much, due to being away from the computer. I have no regrets about those days - but it lead to me thinking yesterday I was ready to do this without tracking. I've done that in the past, and it lead to me falling completely off track. So today I'm back at it, tracking every thing I eat. Its easy enough to do, and easy enough to be fairly accurate, so there is no reason not to.
On cardio - I want to continue improving my endurance for running, and eventually my speed. I'd like to be able to run longer distances, just as a way of meeting a personal goal of being able to do it. Here is my plan:
Day 1 Walk 30 minutes w/ incline
Day 2 Walk 5 minutes w/ incline; Run 20 minutes, Walk 5 minutes
Day 3 Walk 30 minutes 4-4.5 mph or Exercise Bike
Day 4 Alternate Walking w/ 2-3 minute sprints at 5.5-6mph
Day 5 Exercise Bike 30 minutes
Day 6 Walk 5 minutes w/ incline; Run 20 minutes, Walk 5 minutes
After a few weeks, increase the speed of my longer runs OR the time of the longer runs...
