The past 2 times I’ve ran on the treadmill, I made it my goal to hit the 5K mark, that’s 3.1 miles for ya’ll that arn’t runners 🙂 It’s further than the 20 mins I normally run. Saturday, I covered the distance in 25mins, so naturally yesterday I had to try to beat that mark. I did it in 24:37. I was running intervals during that time so it wasn’t a steady pace, but all in all I’m happy with that for the circumstances. The long-term goal is to be back under 20 mins for a real outside 5K. I may run one this spring?? Not sure on that, lol! I like running races.
I also caught up on my JUMPSTART exercises. I did Bicep curls and Step Ups plus thew in some bench dips and pull ups. Then I stretched a bit. I was really stiff yesterday. AS written on my POA I did do measurements and pictures. Both of which were BLAH but good to have for a starting point of this buffing phase. I’ll plan to take pics and stats again in 2 weeks. I EXPECT to see some changes! If you are curious about the pics they are in my private Team BuffMother group. My goal is to be 136 by Feb 1. Time to hit it a bit harder!!
Speaking of hitting it harder….I get many questions from beginners on where to start. Well I have several thoughts on this, but a very simple idea is to start by doing 10 of our Jumpstart exercises every other day… on the off days do some walking or running or other cardio type exercise you enjoy and that’s easy on your joints.
