So I was at the gym over the weekend, as usual. I took my phone on the floor with me, not as usual. Ashley saw me with my phone, and scolded me, I said I wasn’t at work and she wasn’t the boss of me at the gym. We laughed. Ha ha.
So here are a few of the things for that men’s health thing I posted about. just to show what the exercises were for a couple. The push ups and the squat, curl, press things were both the second sets of those exercises. The final bit is burpee pullups. Jodi invented them because she hates me I think. You are seeing the third and final set of 15 each.
After the poor performance on the beep test yesterday I decided to put an end to that and did sprints on the treadmill today. 12 mph, 30 second on, 30 seconds off. I did ten, then biked for 20 minutes, then did another set of 10 sprints,then biked for another 10 minutes. In all I ran 3k in those 10 minutes of actual running. Pretty fast. My intent is to lower the rest time by 5 seconds per interval each week. like next week 30 on 25 off, then the week after 30 on 20 off, until I am running the five minutes straight. Then either shoot for a longer time, or up the speed and go back to intervals. I intend to redo the beep test in say 6 weeks, just before our cruise, and get that level 12!
