I started my HIIT today-High Intensity Interval Training. I’m aiming to do this twice a week for 5 weeks to burn more calories/fat and “maybe” improve my running pace. IT KICKED MY BEHIND!!! 🙂
I got the plan from a SELF magazine or you can go to this website: SELF
Today I was “supposed” to sprint 8 seconds/jog 12 seconds and keep this up for 15 minutes. 8 minutes later after LOTS of pauses and thinking I was going to DIE, I decided I would try it again tomorrow. IF I wake up tomorrow. Or IF I can move tomorrow. 🙂
High intensity are not the two words that should be used to describe these kind of intervals. Here are some replacement choices:
1. Hell arrived
2. Help me
3. Just died
I did learn something valuable. Always run your distance run BEFORE you try the intervals. I’m glad I did this which helped me make it through 8 minutes instead of just 8 seconds. Surely the fat and pounds will just melt away if I can keep this up. 🙂
After I finished
killing myself running, I my daughter and I went to eat at Niffers on the Lake with my mom. We played bingo, too. I was only 4 spaces away from winning. 🙂
I ate grilled chicken, a plain baked potato, and steamed carrots and broccoli. YUM-YUM!
Then I had this for a late night snack.
I’m going to end this long post at almost 11 pm by saying-Goodnight! 🙂
