2015: Phase 1 – Day 8

Submitted by on February 11, 2015 – 4:53 am No Comment

Narrative: (Duration – 64 mins) →  My Nike Line
Really hard workout, especially on my run.  I feel like I am complaining a bit, but this workout is quite a burning.  Yet still, I do fell as though I am getting fitter, stronger and faster.  I believe also bested my caloric high point of yesterday, so today was the most calories burned so far in this phase – YaY again!  I also had a faster run today (really felt like stopping at about the 20min point, but pushed through to 30. Today I only walked for about 5 mins, so that is an improvement over yesterday as well.  Specifics: Started with 30 Crunches, Pushups, Situps, Squats (30lbs DBs), Leg Raises then did 30 mins on the treadmill for just over 3 miles at level 6.2, lowered the rate to level 5 and walked for 5min, then increase to level 6.5 for the remaining 5mins.  I then broke and did another 10 of the previously mentioned exercises and 2x 20 sec Planks.   Still have not mastered the early workout, but I have an excuse since I had to attend Marcus’s first official Lacrosse Varsity game.  His team (Blue Devils) won 9 – 6 agains Sandalwood (Saints).  At any rate, I will try again for an early tomorrow.  Jason Derulo still going strong. That’s it for today… Good livin’…just keep on movin’
