Yesterday was easy, man. Easy. I mean, easy in the sense that I wasn’t huffing and puffing my way through 30 minutes of sheer hell, that kind of easy. Maybe it’s because I used a different treadmill. I think I shall use this treadmill from here on out. So easy.
I started out by walking 5 minutes, then got into a nice easy jog. I laid it on thick for about 5 minutes and decided at that point that I was hardly even breathing heavily, why not go for some longer jog times and mix it up a bit? 6 minutes went by, then 7. After about 8 minutes of jogging, I started feeling it but by this time I was jonesing to get in a full 10 minutes of jogging. When I (finally) reached said 10 minutes, I went back to walking. I recovered quickly, within a minute, but walked another minute before starting to jog again.
Round 2 – I was able to continue the jog for 7 minutes this time before my legs began whimpering at me to please STOP. Walked again, then jogged another 2 minutes. 19 again! Sweet! Gunning for 20 next week!
After the jogging, gym buddy and I did some ab work which was almost as exhausting as the jogging was. Crunch, crunch, crunch for about 15 minutes straight, some work with the medicine balls, then called it a day.
I watched tv for the rest of the night. It was great.
