Thought I would dust off this old blog as a way to keep track of my workouts...since I am sure I am the only one to read it now!
Started running last weekend, using a beginner's plan from Runner's World. Even though I can crank it in a 1 hour spin class, I sure can't run anymore! I started out with a run 1 min/ walk 2 minutes & repeat 10x workout. I did that I think 4 times for the week.
Today, I moved it up to run 90 sec, walk 90 sec, repeat 10 times. The RW plan said to move from the first week to "run 2 minutes walk 1 minute. Repeat 10x". I wasn't sure if I could manage that, so I decided to do the 90 seconds instead. I think it worked out well, since I ended up with 15 minutes of running. After doing 40 minutes on the treadmill, I spent 20 minutes warming up in spin, then did a 1 hour spin class with Lisl. It was a great class and I ended up with a puddle of sweat under my bike.
I did pretty well foodwise today too. 2 TBSP peanut butter (roughly) before going to the gym, 2 water bottles at the gym, a bottle of lowfat choclate milk after the gym. 6 inch veggie delight on wheat for lunch. 3 clementines. 1 cup brown rice. 1 turkey burger on a wheat bun, ketchup and sweet relish on it, and about 1/2 cup sweet potato fries (weren't very good...we just baked sliced sweet potatoes and tossed with a little olive oil and sprinkled with montreal steak seasoning.
I also tried out my jillian michaels fitness ultimatum 2009 on the wii fit. spent 15 minutes, it seems like it will be an OK workout if I could just get some of the parts down. Have no idea how to get those paint balls picked up!
