This morning, I decided to stop pussy footing around with the treadmill and just go for the burn...quite the feat since I haven't even looked at the gym in close to three weeks!
Rather than just do my regular walk at 3% incline and 3.8 mph, I decided to go back to where I was last year and do the cross country routine. It has hills as high as 12% incline - CRAZY!
I did all but the last 2 minutes or so at 4.0 mph and even ran the flats at 5.0 mph (there is 5 minutes worth of "flat terrain").
The result? 2.23 miles walked and over 300 calories burned!
Like I said, THAT WAS AMAZING!!! WOOHOO!!!
