|I love hitting those high notes ;)|
I had another fantastic treadmill session on Wednesday leading to my all time best 3.55 miles in one hour. I am running short intervals at 4.0 mph and I'm walking at 3.4 mph. When I think back to when I started...I walked at 2.7 or 2.8 and I ran at 3.3. Now, I'm walking at where I used to run. That's quite a change.
I definitely had a productive week. I'm heading into vacation mode at work - which means I'm working like a maniac just to make sure everything is in order before I leave. The last thing I want to be thinking about is work while I'm on vacation. Perhaps all of that intensity is flowing into my workouts. I definitely look forward them because it lets me step away from my cubicle and blow of some steam.
And, boy, did I blow off some steam. Everyday I worked out, I ramped up the intensity from the prior day. I pushed myself, but I didn't kill myself, ya know. I felt in "the zone". The music was good and the results were even better. Let's just say, if next week goes well, I may be joining the 200 Club sooner than I thought. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
This week, I received an email about the biometrics screening for the insurance discount. My appointment is toward the end of August. That's one of the last days available. I want to give myself as much time as possible to get where I need to be. Although I only need to meet three of the biometric measurements, I'm aiming for four.
Last, and certainly not least, the last two weeks at Zumba have been fabulous. Our instructor introduced two new routines, and one of them is straight up Krazy...and I love it. I love those high energy hip-hop numbers. They get me amped up big time. Here's hoping the energy I had this week, spills over into the next. I'm deciding to take a vary rare Saturday off. No working out today. Let's just hope I don't regret it later next week.
