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.
