gym mystery

I actually didn’t procrastinate around the house this morning for too long. (Busy. I was busy. Promise.) Instead, I did several things that needed doing, and one project that accidentally happened. (Went in the kitchen to put something away, and ended up clearing off most of the stuff on top of the cabinet and reorganizing under the sink. Have a project planned for the kitchen this weekend, to help with tiny kitchen organizing.) I feel so much better when I get my day and workout started early.

Anyway, my interval pace for this week is 5.5 mph. I was pretty sure I couldn’t manage this pace for long, so I changed up my workout to 10 x 1 minute at 5.5 mph, alternated with walking for 1 minute at 3 or 3.2 mph.


Total mileage wasn’t the greatest, but I did all the intervals at 5.5 mph, so I’m good with it. Still a little unsure about the girl on the treadmill in front of me who had on sweats, a sweatshirt with the hood up, and fingerless gloves…and who had her treadmill at an incline of 15! Y’all, it’s September in Texas, which means that it was over 90 degrees until like 2 days ago. It’s still 75 degrees today, and she was dressed for winter. I couldn’t wrap my brain around it, and watching her kept me distracted. She was killing that incline, but I just didn’t understand the clothes. Was she really that cold? Is she training for something specific, like a winter hike? Is this like the sauna workout suit designed to torch calories?

Help me out here. I’m dying to know!

In other news, I’ve finally been doing what my health coach suggested and pre-tracking my food and nutrition in my app. I actually like this a lot. It shows me what areas need work, and how much room I have for things I didn’t plan on eating (like the Oreo cream cake one of the patients brought yesterday, which was amazing!).

Onward and upward!
