Today’s workout (treadmill): 35 minutes
|A little resistance|
Work distractions prevented me from getting out this morning and the busyness continued throughout the day. By midday I’d resigned myself to missing any kind of workout. Around 5:30 I was fully caught up, so I decided to do something that resembled activity. The treadmill provided an easy, quick and low key alternative to a run on the street.
I didn’t feel like a run that late in the day, but 35 minutes walking on the treadmill didn’t seem like enough of a workout. I put on some ankle weights, grabbed some hand weights, and set the treadmill’s incline to a 2% grade. I picked an easy running pace and ended up with a far more beneficial workout than I’d originally planned. Judging from the level of sweating I’d done, this was the equivalent of a much faster run done with no incline or weights. I didn’t wear my HRM but I wish I had. I would have liked to see how hard I’d actually worked today.
