Man has it been a great day! I was dead on with eating and I got more walking in today than I have at once before! My Hogs are likely heading to the Sugar Bowl! I am in heaven today!
I decided that since it is getting cold out lately and I am not a fan, I should start trying to get myself used to the habit of walking on the treadmill. So today, I decided at first I was just going to go for 6 miles on it. Well then I got the urge to start using the preprogrammed workouts on it just to see what they were about. It has 4 programmed workouts. I started out using number 1. It was a 30 minute workout that was not too difficult. I moved on to number two, 30 minute workout, a little more challenging than 1, but still not hard. Now number 3 was significantly more difficult! The speeds and inclines stepped up a couple of notches and wow did it show! I finished it and by that time, I had a little over 4.5 miles in and an hour and a half. I decided to heck with it and hit program number 1 one more time to get 6 miles in! So I wound up satisfying both my goals for today with one effort!
Tomorrow is the day that Christine has challenged me to push myself walking. She has committed to a half marathon jogging, so I initially agreed to do a 10k, but since i did that today, I modified it to I am going to try for 10 miles tomorrow on the treadmill, walking of course. I am really getting pumped about pushing myself! I even let my calorie bank go on up to 1800 for this!
Okay I am gonna get off here. I need rest if I am gonna do that much walking at once, so ya'll be good and next time you see me post, it will be about my 10 mile excursion!
