Brisk five-minute warmup walk, then do two repetitions of the following:
- Jog 200 yards (or 90 seconds)
- Walk 200 yards (or 90 seconds)
- Jog 400 yards (or 3 minutes)
- Walk 400 yards (or three minutes)
Important part is... I DID IT. I had to slow down a little bit on the 2nd 3 minute run, but I didn't slow it down that much (from 4.0 down to 3.9, then 3.8 last minute).
Today was an awesome day here in Indy. I started out this morning by mowing the lawn and finally putting down some grass seed in the bald spots in the front yard. Watched some Indycar and had a good dinner of some Shepherd's Pie from a recipe from a Prevention Cookbook I picked up the other week. The reason I spotted the book to begin with was that the Shepherd's Pie was on the cover. We hunted around for a butcher shop that actually sold Lamb and it was worth it. The recipie needs some tweaking (too much onion!). But very good none-the-less. I digress. The weather was "unseasonably hot". It felt good to me!
After waiting for dinner to settle in, I then tackled W3D1. This is also when I found that "unseasonably hot" was impacting my workout. I felt like I poured buckets of sweat. I was really feeling like the Kirk line in the new Star Trek movie... "I feel like I'm leaking."
Thanks for reading! Regards,
