I’m still a January Joiner

Are you?!  How is your healthy lifestyle holding up now that we are a few weeks in?  I’m struggling to see results and let me tell you it’s annoying, but I’m keepin’ on keepin’ on!

Another week of cardio…this time with RUNNING.  Oh lordy.  I decided to up things from my speed walking and get my heart pumping so hard it felt like it would pop out of my mouth.

Monday – new workout – basic HIIT…


  • Warm-Up = 3 mins (3.0 – 3.5mph)
  • 8x 1 min jogging (4.5mph), 30 sec running (5.5mph), 1:30 min walking (3.5 mph) = 24 mins
  • Cool down = 3 mins (3.5 – 2.5 mph)
  • TOTAL = 30 minutes

Wednesday – same workout – new playlist…


Saturday – same workout – forgot my socks!


And since yesterday I spent my morning fighting a harrowing windstorm on the highway home from a friend’s house I decided I wasn’t going out in #yyjWindpocalypse again and did some yoga at home. – Shoulder Opening Flow…


This week is more of the same with the addition of the rowing machine.  Preparing my upper body for the return of strength training in February.

What’s your favourite treadmill workout?

I am *not* a treadmill fan. But, if I *have* to my workout is as follows:

5 min warmup
5 min 5.0 0% incline
5 min 5.0 2% incline
5 min 5.5 0% incline
5 min 5.5 2% incline
5 min 6.0 0% incline
5 min 6.0 2% incline
5 min cooldown

If I want a harder workout I'll go up to 6.5 and then back down to 5.0

Another January peep hangin in there! You have very eclectic taste in music. I think I'll be downloading some of those tunes.
