My distance today on the treadmill was 5 miles. I have never walked, hopped, skipped, jumped, or biked for 5 miles. So to see 5 miles as a distance that I actually covered by running (with a few walk breaks in between) is astonishing to me. I am not sure what made me go 5 miles. I just had it in my head that I had to kick it up a notch today.
My weekend was filled with kids school activities as well as a reconciliation program for my son. I didn't have much time for myself, which is o.k. The weekends should be about family. We had a couple nice family dinners, watched some sports on t.v and worked on science projects and valentine cards.
So this morning, once I got the kids off to school, I thought that I needed to accomplish something for myself. So I psyched myself up and headed to the treadmill. I started off doing a nice mile at 5.8 mph. Then I went up a notch to 6.0 then back down to 5.8 until I reached 2 miles. Then I walked a little and repeated the cycle. 5.8 then 6 then back to 5.8 then walk. The last 1/2 mile I ran it at 6.2.
So a really good workout day for me today!! Definitely Operation Hardcore Fit!!!
Have a great day!!
