Hopefully the final day of week three. I stopped using the podcasts because I was bored. Is this a theme in my life? Ought I to be worried?
Joe has put much of his vast mp3 collection from his computer onto my mp3 player, so I was treated to everything from OMD to Prince, to Huey Lewis, to Rick James. Mostly good exercise music. I did find Joan Jett's I Love Rock and Roll, however, a bit slow. Still good listening, but its beat is so pronounced that it was hard to keep the speed I needed to be going against the beat of the song.
Another quirky thing is that Duran Duran's Rio is a really long song. 5 1/2 minutes. It came on during the last few minutes of my final walk interval and I told myself I'd just walk to to the end of the song. I figured it would leave me fewer minutes to make up on the Gazelle and Nordic Rider. All told, I think I did about 48 minutes today, thanks in part to the length of Rio.
For the tread mill work I did 28 minutes, 1.61 ml, 64 fat calories, 207 calories. I did the walking intervals at 2.9 mph and the jogging at 4 or 4.1 mph.
Next week I have to alternate 90 second intervals with 5 minute intervals. I hope I'm ready. Probably my biggest enemy is the boredom. Wish me luck.
