Feb 3 treadmill run (!!!!!) 3miles 32:00......upper body weights.....tradmill walk: 10 minutes at 15% incline 3 mph (totally kicked my trash), and then 5 minutes at 7% and 3.5 mph
Feb 4th elliptical 8 miles 34:40 speed kept between 14.5-15 mph. Got my trash kicked again.
I was suppose to workout this morning but I was kept up last night by an invading stomach troll who was reminding me that I ate a whole pie in less than 48 hours. Oh and doing so will also make the scale read that you are 2lbs heavier, but I am sure that's a mistake. Really.
Loved the new treadmill. Though I was hoping that it would miraculously make 'mill running EASY-PEASY. But no. I did like running on a new piece of wonderful, but the mill still makes me feel like a hamster. I AM thankful that nothing can derail my 1/2 marathon training plans now (except sickness or injury but let's pretend they dont exist, m'kay?)
I played around with it yesterday afternoon and took the incline to the max (15%) and kept the speed at 3 mph and WOW was that hard!! Did that for 10 min and then brought it down to 7% and upped the speed to 3.5 for 5 minutes. I am thinking I will do some 'hill walking' instead of my elliptical for a change up in cardio.
Also, does anyone know of any treadmill workout 'plans'? I have trouble doing any thing besides a regular ol' run on the mill. I think it would be fun to have different plans to try (other than the pre-programed ones). Eventually I would like to do my tempo runs on the 'mill but I dont know how to do that? Does that seem strange? Its very hard for me to push myself at all on the mill but I know its going to need to be done. I just dont know when to increase the speed, what to increase it to, when to decrease it etc. Outdoors, I run totally by feel. Slow down when I want, speed up when I want etc. But on the mill its much harder for me to do that...
