I started my interval training over again today. It was weird to walk between short runs again :) I did C25K W1D1 (however, I call it W10D1) It consisted of a 5 min warm-up and cool down with 8-1 min runs in the middle and 90 second breaks between the runs. I did the first two intervals at 5.2, the next two at 5.5, the next two at 5.7, the next one at 6.0 and the final one I kept increasing throughtout the minute from 6.0-6.8! For the first 6 intervals I couldn't even get my heart rate over 150 (barely even up to 150). I recovered very quickly also. Even the fast runs were not terrible and I felt like I could have easily gone longer than 60 seconds. I will have to look into maybe W2 or W3 of C25K and decide what may be a better starting point for me since I really have done more than this. I didn't feel as challenged as I would have liked. I also considered doing more time also, but I may have to try and create my own playlist for that. I figure I would still like to get some decent mileage and time. Becasuse I felt like my run was not as tough as I thought it should be I ran downstairs and did a few ball exercises while my HR was already above resting! I felt better about myself for doing this.
Today I was back on my eating plan. For some reason yesterday I was very very munchy. I couldn't find anything to satisfy my need for food :( It was very frustrating because I knew I didn't really want to eat like that, but it was all I could do to make myself feel content (to a degree). I made a pot of chili last night in the crockpot for dinner last night. Hoping to have that for dinner tonight as well. It was quite spicy so I only had one bowl! Probably the same tonight :)
Nothing else exciting going on in my world. I didn't get out skiing any other times this weekend, but may this week and weekend. Probably not today though, it is really cold! I hate the cold and I didn't even leave the house yesterday! Well I am off work and headed home!
