Instead of going to the gym today, I hit the outdoor track for some interval training. Here’s the breakdown of today’s routine –
Total Distance – 2 Miles
Total Time – 25 Minutes 30 Seconds
Intervals – Alternated Running 1/8 Mile And Walking 1/8 Mile
Heart Rate – Walking 120 – 135 Running 145 – 165
I really pushed myself during the running intervals. When walking, I focused on taking in lots of oxygen and preparing myself for the next running interval. I could have spent more time running and less time walking, by my goal wasn’t to post my best time. My goal was to focus on my heart rate, pushing it during the running intervals.
Now that the training session is over, I feel great. I’ll be honest, after the first mile, I considered just walking the second mile, but I really wanted to see how hard I could push myself. The old me would have given in – The new me refuses.
