9/27/10 Exercise Report

I've decided to post my daily exercise doings. Helps keep me accountable and I can sort of track how I'm doing.

Treadmill Run Intervals: Warmup 2 mins, speed walk 1 min, easy run 1 min, sprint 1 min. Completed a 5K distance in 38 mins. 4.5 mins slower than my PR. But, I'm conditioning myself to run faster. I don't think I'll ever do anything over a 5K, but I'm seeking to increase my time. They say that intervals is how athletes train to become stronger. So I figure if I run some hard intervals, I'll get stronger and be able to run faster when I just flat out run.

I was able to do this pretty well. Although afterwards when I was upstairs getting water, I felt really lightheaded and wanted to almost pass out. Gotta fix that. I'm slower on the treadmill, I'm not sure if that's because of the intervals, gotta be. I mean I was walking, even if I was speed walking, it was still walking. I'll have to run a 5K distance sometime in the far future to see how this conditioning is working.

I'll keep you posted.

how do you go 'backwards'? After your sprint, do you easy run again? Or start back at the beginning of the routine?

After my sprint I do a speed walk, or race walk, or power walk, whatever you want to call it. Then I easy run, which is a tick above a speed walk, then I sprint again. Make sense?
