Managed another 60mins on the treadmill yesterday at work. I get bored running so I set a workout which is similar to Fire Service fitness assessment. It's easier on the joints too. I set the speed at 2.8mph, a brisk walk. The speed doesn't vary. Every minute, I raise the incline on the treadmill by 0.5%. So, our machine goes up to 15% incline, then I reverse it. It's an ideal workout as it sort of works out as a 20min warm up, 20min hard graft, 20min cool down. Once the treadmill gets to 10% or so, it is a tough workout. I guage my fitness levels not by speed or distance but by HR. Max HR for this was 148. This dropped to 110 at the finish. As I do this test more and more, the aim is to achieve same result with lower max HR and better recovery ( ideally, 100hr at finish ).
Still not had a beer which I'm quite chuffed with. Not missed it at all really. I'm resisting the weigh in until next week. Hope others are doing well and at least chipping away at their goals, if not fully realising them. Take care all :-)
