I just have to share, I did my second workout and NAILED it - best times/speeds ever! I didn't do any weight machines as I hit all those earlier. I just did the treadmill and stationary bike.
I was doing about 3.8-3.9 and trying to meet 1/4 mile in 4 minutes making a 16 minute mile, I was doing great but I stopped after a quarter and would go onto something else then go back and do another quarter - I did this 4x to meet a mile. Tonight, I did 1/4 mile in 3.75 minutes and pushed myself to do half a mile instead of just a quarter! 1/2 mile was 7.5 minutes - that means I'm OFFICIALLY doing a mile in 15 minutes!! Two weeks ago, it was like 20 some odd minutes - I wouldn't even try to calculate because it was so disappointing!
I hit the bike and was averaging between 14 and 15 MPH on a level 8, I was doing 10/11 about 2 weeks ago and did only 13-13.5 this afternoon - both on a level 7. It was taking me just shy of 5 minutes to do a mile, I can't remember the exact time but it was just over 4 minutes. Nearly a minute shaved off that time!!
And, bonus points, I finally not only met my 8 glasses of water, I exceeded it. Yeahhh buddy!
Loving the little accomplishments! If I can do it, anyone can, ya just gotta push yourself!
