WOW...I trained completely by my heart rate this morning. I didn't look at my times at all after the 10 minute warm up walk. I ran until my HR went to 175, then walked until it went down to 165.... I just uploaded the data to trainingpeaks and WOW!! My first run was 2 1/2 minutes long!! I ran a total of ELEVEN minutes and walked a total of six (not including warm up and cool down) (yes, I went over on my interval running just a couple of minutes). None of my running intervals were under a minute!! PROGRESS!!!
I didn't get enough sleep last night (5 hours--which is about 2 less than I "need") and I could feel it this morning. But, when I got home I did a 10 minute "G-ball" work out. That was the first time I've done that "work out" and I can't say that I really felt I got anything at all from it. The only reason I did that one is because I couldn't find my 10 minute Pilates DVD!! I know if I had done that work out I would have felt it! We'll see tomorrow!
I'm really looking forward to the day I can go out and run for an hour. I used to have my doubts that would ever be possible, but (most days) I don't anymore! I just have to keep working at it. It's like any other skill in life, to get better you have to practice. Chess, writing, golf, strength, math, piano, cooking.......even marriage!!
I have a lot to say today, but no time. Maybe I can practice my writing skills later!!
Thanks for stopping by, come again soon!
