Another late morning post….man it is a good thing I don’t have too many days off or all my posts would be out of wack!
I have been running around like a mad woman today getting stuff done.
I was debating for the longest time whether I would take an off day or a run day. I knew I was due for a tempo run after looking at my Run schedule, but I also was feeling sore from the 30-Day Shred workout I did yesterday. I played it by ear all morning and finally decided that I felt fine enough to ‘try’ out a tempo run.
I said to myself, “If I am not feeling it, then I can stop and call it a day” [Whenever I say this to myself I almost always end up finishing the workout!]
I admit, my legs were tired. Tired. Tired. T-i-r-e-d. It probably should have been a rest day as my shins were sore from that mean, old Jillian Michaels.
What I did was I stopped every 1/2 mile to 1 mile for a quick 10 second break. This was enough to get me through the 4-mile tempo run!
- 0.10 mile walking warm-up, 4.0 mph, incline 3%
- 4 mile tempo run [1 mile 6.0 mph; 2 miles 7.0 mph; 1 mile 6.0 mph; all at incline 3%]
- 0.17 mile walking cool down, 4.0 mph, incline 3%
- Total duration: 41:22
- Max Heart Rate: 170 bpm (87% of max)
- Avg Heart rate: 154 bpm (79% of max)
- Feel the burn: 350 kcals
What other body parts are sore after my 30-Day Shred workout?
- Glutes (!!!) owwww…lots of squatting
This workout is going to kick my butt! I can’t wait to do it again.
