Best. Workout. EVER.

Friday, May 17, 2013

I had the best workout today! I did the interval setting on the treadmill, 30 minutes with 1.5% incline. The "rest" portion was at 2.9 mph, "work" at 5.0 mph. The last interval I worked at 5.5 mph. It was a nice run/walk and I feel AMAZING now.

I'm so glad it is Friday. I am behind at work, it's been a pretty crazy week. Yesterday the weather was doom and gloom and rainstorms, today its hot and muggy and SO humid!! It's supposed to be around 90F tomorrow and Sunday. I'm planning on getting a hike in tomorrow or Sunday morning, but I should shoot to do both I think emoticon
Next weekend, I want to go out to some areas outside of the city with my housemate, he's a photography student and I want to share some of these places with him before I move out of my house in a few months. He has some real talent, and he's cool to hang out with. That should be a fun time. Hope the humidity isn't up then!

I hope everyone's had a good week and has an even better weekend. emoticon

I use the treadmill to mix-up my walk too. I have heart problems and need to push myself more on the incline than on speed. I start with a 4 incline and speed at 2.5. At 5 minutes I increase the speed to 2.6, then after 5 min increase the incline to 4.5, then speed to 2.7. then incline to 5.0, next I increase the speed to 3 for 5 minutes, then begin lowering speed by .1 until I've walked 36 minutes. At one time I had my incline up to 9.5 but then had stents in my right coronary artery and had to start all the way down at 2.5 incline. I also was walking faster. Anyway, it is a great way to push yourself toward a goal. I also walk outdoors and we live on the side of a hill. I cannot walk anywhere without walking up and down hill fairly steep hills.
