Post Vacation Run

So today was my first running day since returning from vacation.  Yeah, I know I could have run during my vacation, however there were so many steep hills, I really didn't think that I could have made it.

Instead, I did high intensity interval training. Yes, there's an app for that, and I used it every three days for my entire vacation.  You get a good work out in a short amount of time and you don't really need a lot of space so you can do it anywhere.  The day after every work out I would be sore, so it must have done some good.

During the first run, my legs actually felt great from all the muscle building I was doing during my time off. However, because I hadn't done any indurance training, my breathing was way off and I got really winded. I only made it 1.7 miles... I actually went further, but I turned my pedometer off when I started walking.

I think I'm going to keep doing both types of training since they are good for different things, and we shall see if I can go faster and longer next time.

  1. Your training schedule still amazes me. You have a great commitment to working out. I never excercise on vacation either, no matter how much great equipment , you name it is available...I like to take a break from work outs, like anything else in my life. I find then, I'm more into it when I return to my daily life.
