Running A Mile Rocks

According to my Weekly Workout Plan, Fridays are for working out chest, triceps, shoulders, and hitting the treadmill.

Here’s how today’s workout went –

  • 5 Minutes Warm Up On Indoor Track
  • 34 Minutes Walking / Rocking On Treadmill (Which included running a mile without stopping!)
  • 3 Sets Chest Press Machine
  • 3 Sets Triceps Press Machine
  • 3 Sets Shoulder Press Machine
  • 5 Minutes Stretching

I had a great time at the gym today.  I was unable to go on Thursday, and I was pumped about having an entire 90 minutes to workout.  Since I started The 929 Project, I’ve avoided trying to run a full mile – for fear that I would fail – and get discouraged.  Today, I decided that it was time to test myself.  I’ve been doing intervals – walking for a while and running for a while, but today I warmed up for about 10 minutes and started jogging.  About 13 minutes later, I had run a mile – and was still running.  I could have continued, but I didn’t want to press my luck.

I think I’ll wait a few more days before I try running again.  I really enjoy the elliptical machine and I feel that it gives me the best overall cardio and fat burning workout.  It does feel good, however, to know that if I want to run a mile, I can!
