Happy Hump day!
Yesterday I managed to stay within calorie range. Been watching my portions and trying to drink more water.
My workout was great. Did 2 15 min speed walks on the treadmill. I did a total of 1.33 miles (both workouts combined), which is a personal best so far.
Last night I set out my workout clothes and packed a bag with my work clothes in it along with other essentials.
I actually got up at 5:30 as planned and put my workout clothes on, grabbed my lunch and bag and off I went. I got to the gym a little after 6am. Had the place to myself for awhile, then a guy came in about 35 mins later.
For my workout I walked at a 5% incline and did 2.5 speed for 5 mins (warmup), then every 2-3 mins I would bump the speed up to 3.0 and jog for 2 mins straight then I would reduce the speed to 2.5 to get my heart rate back down for about 3 mins, and I kept repeating that cycle for 40 mins. Does that sound like a good workout? My total distance was about 1.65 miles. I was sweating alot and my face was beet red. Who knew I would actually be jogging on a treadmill!! NEVER thought Id be saying that.
I took a shower and put on my work clothes (work is right upstairs), and then realized I FORGOT my work shoes............so now I have on a black work outfit on with white tennis shoes! I bet I wont do that again. I will have to keep a spare pair of dress shoes in the car. Then later on realized my shirt was on inside out! Soooo not my morning. LOL.
But my workout is already done with (and Im feeling it). I will probably go down again later and just do a light walk (half mile) on the treadmill.
Have a good one.
