45 min Hike on the Treadmill workout. Results

Wednesday, April 03, 2013

Hey all,
Yesterday I ended up under my calorie range. Had to work last night and didnt want to eat anything when I got home. Went to bed early so I could get up early for my am workout. Was on the treadmill by 5:40am. See link for the full 45 min Hike on the Treadmill workout.

Well all I can say it that I only lasted about the first 20 mins. Ended up lowering the incline to 5% and switched from 3.0 to 2.5 for 10 mins. Then a cool down. Then I was off to stretch. Ending up getting in 1.56 miles total in 30 mins.

I will say that 4.0 speed that the workout plan recommends is a little fast and I was practically running at that speed. So I had to lower it back down to 3.5 to even make it doable. I was really huffing and puffing by the end. Took a shower and changed and I was at work a half hour early. My shins are sore now. I feel like I did pretty good, being that I am still a beginner and I figure if I try this 1-3 times a week. I will eventually be able to do the whole thing. Guess I will make another attempt Friday evening.

Today I am going to go back down and get in 15 more mins during both of my breaks. Wont do anything vigorous though.

Last night my husband said my butt looks smaller and the back of my thighs are looking better as well. Im glad he is seeing a difference because I am not..........yet. Also he surprised me and got me some Hesheys DARK chocolate (mini) bars. Thought that was nice. I did have one last night.

Well have a good day. Thanks for stopping by.
