Gym Recap

OMG...I made it through the full C25K week 4 plan this time! It pays to get to the gym early enough to hog a treadmill for as long as I need. :)

Treadmill: C25K week 4, day 2
- 5 minute warm up
- 3:00 run/1:30 recover/5:00 run/2:30 recover/3:00 run/3:00 recover/5:00 run (I think, I've already forgotten!)
- running at 5.7mph, walking @ 3.8mph
- 5 minute cooldown

3 sets strength training (and man are those reverse lunges kicking my ass)

Recumb Bike: level 5, random
- 10 mins @ 80mph+
- 3 minute cooldown

This afternoon I'll go for a 15 minute walk with the dog too. Now that the sun is out, it's not fair to keep him cooped up!

Nice! I'm starting Week 1, day 1 of the C25K today. Perfect weather for it!

Good for you! You should be damn proud of yourself! :)

Do you mean reverse lunges like reverse plate-loaded squats? The machine looks like this:

I do 90 lbs on that and it's a bitch!

Jen, the reverse squats aren't on a machine...it's just me standing on a step, lunging back to the floor one leg at a time and then pulling myself back up. It's tough because I'm so damn tall!!
