My New Best Friend

I wish I could say it was a person.
Or even a dog.
Or something, but no, welcome to my world.
My new BFF in the whole wide world is:
HIIT

That’s right.
I wasn’t going to go to the gym, but then I remembered, oh yeah, I wanted to.
I went to the library, picked up my books and headed to the gym.
My workout went like this:

10 mins of running (9:30 min mile which is a personal best, hey, I run slow).
Thought about using the Step Mill (did about 4 minutes).
Changed my mind and said, treadmill, we’re friends (most of the time) let’s see if I can do some pyramid intervals or rolling hill intervals.
So, what’s a girl to do?
Both.

It went a little something like this:

2 min – 4.0 – 4 incline
1 min – 7.0 – 1 incline
2 min – 4.0 – 5 incline
1 min – 7.2 – 1 incline
2 min – 4.0 – 6 incline
1 min – 7.4 – 1 incline
2 min – 4.0 – 7 incline
1 min – 7.6 – 1 incline
2 min – 4.0 – 8 incline
1 min – 7.8 – 1 incline
2 min – 4.0 – 9 incline
1 min – 8.0 – 0 incline
2 min – 4.0 – 1o incline
1 min – 7.6 – 1 incline
2 min – 4.0 – 9 incline
1 min – 7.4 – 1 incline
2 min – 4.0 – 8 incline
1 min – 7.2 – 1 incline
2 min – 4.0 – 7 incline
1 min – 7.2 – 1 incline
5 min – COOL DOWN

That’s right, I might not be as fast as some, but I think I rocked it out.
It also felt WAY different than my 5 mile runs, but I sweat my butt off maybe even more.
We’ll see what crazy ideas I get for tomorrow’s workout.
Happy Short Work Week!
