I am dubbing the month of February, my kick in the butt month. I am using it to jump start my love affair with my new treadmill. Yeah, I am forcing a love affair with it before I really get to know it and all its kinks, I am going to be in a bathing suit on March 31st and I will not scare away small children!
My plan for the month is to use my treadmill every day. I have been searching the web for treadmill workouts and putting together a ring of different workouts to keep things interesting. No, I will not be running every day. I am putting no time limit on this but I am aiming for between 20-40 minutes a day.
I will sporadically post my workouts (to help others find new treadmill routines) and to keep myself accountable. I am not committing to a certain about days/times to update because I am putting all my effort into using the treadmill, not stressing out about sharing.
I am also instituting a 14 day ban on McDonalds. It is sad but they are the ONLY drive-thru on my path to work and you have NO idea how many times I stop for a coffee, a tea or a pop or a sandwich. It gets ridiculous. I made it the month of November with no McDonalds and then fell into a bad bad habit again in December and January.
So in short, 29 days of treadmilling, 14 days no McDonalds.. Ready set go! ;)
Tonight's treadmill workout was GOING to look like this:
Min Speed Incline
15-21:59 4.0 5%
However, I am STILL getting over my dang cold.. so it ended up more like me doing all of that until 19:05 when I was like, "Ahhh I cannot breathe and I am almost tasting snot and I just want my pjs."
So, there ya have it. Not pretty, but I did it!
Do you have any treadmill workouts to share?
