2 miles on tread mill in 20 minutes.
168 strides per minute on elliptical for 20 minutes.
5 miles on stationary bike at 100 RPMs in 19 minutes.
Easy cardio day to work out the soreness from previous days training. Really focused on breathing (through nose at low heart rate) and posture. A lot of times we forget about good posture during training. Keeping your back aligned and core tight. I also wanted to keep my workout today low impact because I have a physical fitness test I have to conduct tomorrow. 3 mile run, 20 pull ups an a hundred crunches. No big deal, it is not for an official time for me but I need to set the example for my students. Then on Friday I am leading a group physical training session so I have to be ready to show the youngsters that this 36 year old can still motivate!!!
I just found out I have been entered in the 5k Saint Patties Day race... Sweet. Then two weeks after that I have another 5k. I hope that I will still be able to sign up for the all day 25k at the Carlsbad 5000 the week after that!!! That is what I am really looking forward to.
I'm not the strongest or fastest person, I'm just MOTIVATED!!! Here is my website on living a healthier and happier life through fitness. I am not a licensed nutritionist, physical fitness coach or motivational speaker. I am a normal, average, everyday person just like you. Yet I have learned that if you look good on the outside you will feel good on the inside. Being fit, healthy and happy doesn't cost $19.99 or come on a DVD. It is not about earning a t-shirt or some fad diet; no membership dues required! The reality is that when you make a vow to get healthier, diet or get in shape you have already set yourself up for failure because "getting in shape" is a temporary statement meaning that once your goal is achieved you will rebound back to being "out of shape." The reality is that health, fitness and happiness is a lifestyle. So how do we change our lifestyle? Do we buy magazines about body builders, marathon runners or tri-athletes? Do we model workouts after ultra-fit humans? No. We need realistic and obtainable goals. We need to have a fitness level that meets our lifestyle. Maybe you don't want your back to hurt when carrying your baby or groceries. Or maybe you just want to be in better shape to keep up with your teenager at basketball. What you need is functional fitness. So I challenge you to put the bag of potato chips down, get off the couch and live a life of fitness, health and happiness. It takes 14 days to create a habit and a life time to break them. Are you ready to break the bad habits and start living life... unlimited?
