2015: Phase 1 – Day 9

Submitted by on February 12, 2015 – 12:46 am No Comment

Narrative: (Duration – 81 mins) →  My Nike Line
Another really hard workout today, everything was hard.  Today I moved to the 50s and boy did I feel it.  No complaining here though, I must endure and any way, tomorrow is a DAY OFF!  With the additional time I have run my farther since starting this phase – three new improvements in as many days.  I also ran 40mins in at level 6.0 with not too much ill-effects.  That notwithstanding, my legs were jelly after my 50 squats and situps – they really hurt. Specifics: Started with 2×25 Pushups, Leg Raises, and Planks.  I then did 40 mins on the treadmill for just over 4 miles at level 6.0.  I then broke and did 25x Squats (30lbs DBs), Situps and Crunches.  I then completed my last 10 minutes on the treadmill at 5.0 with a 2degree incline.  After completing my run, I finished the balance of my 25x squats, situps and crunches.  Today I prevailed on completing my workout early; that is huge – will try to do it again after my day off tomorrow.  Still started with Jason Derulo, but pushed into a bit of Zumba music and finished up with some Pitbull. That’s it for today… Good livin’…just keep on movin’         ,
