I've been really bad about exercising in this last month. I was really good at going to the gym at least 4x a week for several months. I would run and do a form of interval training, lift some weights, and do crunches. My gym membership ended since I had to give them 2 months notice, and I wasn't sure how May and June would be with my schedule. So now that I don't have a set gym to go to, I've been lazy about motivating myself to go out for a run & etc.
Although, I did use the bf's gym membership to take a step aerobics class last week. I was so uncoordinated! There were these little old korean women in the class who did so much better than me, I was following them! haha. It reminded me of when I took a step aerobics class back in college. It was so awful the first week because I was so slow at following the steps, when everyone was on the right side, I was on the left, etc, I was so embarrassed I almost dropped the class! But I decided that it would be silly to drop a 1 credit gym class I'm taking for fun. I did get the hang out of it eventually and then loved the class.
My cousin suggested that I try interval training through a podcast, #130.2 Special Reserve Request Edition -Treadmill Training 3.0 She told me she typically does her base rate at 6.5-6.7 and speed interval at 7.7-8.0. I was a little less ambitious, and did my base rate at 6.0, and speed at 7.5. Man, this is a work out! If you really want to challenge yourself plus LOSE more calories since interval training works your body out harder, I would definitely suggest you do this work out. Its about a 30 minute work out, definitely have a bottle of water close by! This will definitely give you a good run if you're using the treadmill and you can download it to your ipod so you can listen to it at the gym. It'll def give you a little more out of your workouts :)
What do you guys do to stay fit?
