Treadmill training

This weekend triclass was cancelled but ironlady left us a workout to do. We had a choice of swim, spin class then 15 minute run OR swim, then a run workout. I did the latter. 

The swim was fine, not to hard or long, but also no drills and I probably should have done drills as well.

The treadmill workout was excellent. I have been running on the treadmill for quite some time now and yes most times I get on and run for 30 minutes at 6.0, sometimes i increase that each mile and a few times i have increased it up to 7.0 and ran for a minute or 2. Ironlady was all about intervals and speed bursts and that is what I did and it was great. It was 30 minutes but it flew by and it was fun having 7.0 and 8.0 on the treadmill as I am usually in awe of the others that run at that speed. Granted I was only at those speeds for 30 seconds to 2 minutes but still. I felt cool. That was saturday am, sunday i did body pump and tomorrow i will run, wed. is swim with ironlady who is bringing her camera to tape me....oh this should be fun fun fun. Thursday I can't workout so I am going to try and get a friday workout in and then saturday I will go and get my ass kicked at 6.30am....wahoooo....

PS - lost 2 pounds due to that flu bug, and gained it back already, eating like crap !!! must stop.


  1. great job on the treadmill workout. i just cannot get motivated to run on a treadmill.

  2. I have such a hard time on the treadmill. But running outside in Wisconsin in the winter sucks. I usually run at 6.4. I usually try for 30 minutes and then I switch to the track or something different.

  3. Good job working out! I am not a treadmill runner...but go you!

  4. I SOOOOOO wish I was able to do the gym like I used to. I am actually talking to my sona bout exercising with him right this minute.


what are you triing
