back at it




Back in the saddle again today. I'm still feeling a little weary but that's probably because I did some smokin' intervals on the treadmill after my workout this morning!
Workout today:
Warm up: 20 mins running (5.15min km av HR 130)
Chest/Biceps including BOSU work (I'm teaching Core tomorrow)
Running: HIIT intervals 14.5km/hr 30 seconds, 10 km/hr 30 seconds x 20. Ouch :)
This afternoon, I am going to spend going over my notes and preparing for the Core program which I teach tomorrow. I think I've mentioned it before, but it's deceptively tough.
Thanks to everyone for their well wishes for a speedy recovery - those wishes definitely worked!

Great to hear Liz, today I'm the one thinking omgoodness my cold came back, I call my sneezes 6 packs, they come once, twice ....

We discussed abdominal muscles today at uni, very interesting, our tutor explained how come sit ups (if done wrong) can be dangerous! He likes to call them crunches LOL.

Hi Liz,

Hope you're doing okay with your main man away. It can help to remember that reunions are always good :-)

I have 2 questions, i hope that's okay. With your treddy intervals, do you program them in or do you just manually bump them up and down every 30/secs? I find that can be a pain! Also, do you do them on an incline?

Thanks xx Bats

Hi girls :)

Batty, I do them on a 0% incline, though I've also been known to add a gradient if I'm feeling especially sadistic. And I just do the manual thang - which is difficult when you're running at 14.5 km/hr ;)

Hugs
Liz;)
