Today is the start of Stage 5 of Beginner’s Guide to Running for Weight Loss. Which that means you walk for 2 minutes 30 seconds. Run for 5 minutes. Repeat that sequence three more times. End with 3 minutes of walking. Total workout time: 33 minutes, 20 of which are running.
I ended up going 2.80 miles. Yeah me. Plus look at that, my average pass was 11:53 miles/hour. Yeah, I am getting faster. Now the first two segments of running I felt good, in fact I felt like I could have ran longer than the 5 minutes but decided I needed to stick with the running plan. It’s a good thing because the last 2 running segments, I ended up walking 30 seconds. My legs were getting tired plus I was thinking about running to much and not just let my mind wonder. I find if I don’t think about running while I’m doing it, I run much better.
By the time I got home, I was one sweaty mess. The sad part is, it was only 65° out when I was running. That is probably why I did so well. I run much better when it is cooler out. So when I got home I was hungry plus I was hot. That only called for one thing
Smoothie time. In the mix today:
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 fresh peach
- 1 c. milk
- 1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
This was cold and hit the spot. Now off to do the work thing. Have a great Tuesday.
