Omgosh.. so I went looking for this gym today that's suppose to be on base.. and it's like 5mins away driving distance and it's pretty big.. I expected something half it's size.
So Teresa.. I think i'll be joining ya on the tredmill.. I'm thinking I can squeeze in a few miles after I put the kids to bed at around 7:30pm.. maybe run an hour. How many miles can you get in an hour Teresa? Just wondering.
Anyway.. since I didnt see much change last week.. i think I need to add more cardio to my routine.. and running will be it. Next week I better see a pound or two off... or I'll be really peeved and have to strangle someone
That's awesome! I am really slow Ana so it takes me a little over an hour to do 5 miles. When I do my long runs I only set it at 4.7 mph right now. When I do my 3 mile runs I can go anywhere from 5 to 6.5 mph, but the 6.5 I only do in short bursts. Once I get past the 13 miles I need to go for my race in distance then I am going to try to work more on speed and hill work. I will say though that watch yourself when you first start. You might have to keep your speed really low at first to keep your heart rate down. I know mine was hitting 170-180 at first just going 5mph so I had to slow it down and even at 4.7mph I was struggling with my HR at first. But my HR has really improved as I have stuck to it. Slow it down if you need to and don't fret if you have to.
lol @ Pamala -- with my luck I'd get on one of those monster tredmills, trip and roll off the machine.. I've never ran on a tredmill before (they are made for tall people and I always feel like a 5yr old stepping on one of them .. the controls are always set so high .. I might opt for elliptical running.. but we'll see. I'll give the old tredmill a shot.
I'm planning on going their tonight.
Thanks for the advice Teresa... and for sure i'll be taking it slow.. only way I can take at the moment.. lol I havent' ran in forever. To think that at my peak I used to run my 2miles for the Physical fitness test in a little over 15mins.
