Week 2 Low Carb Day 2 - the workout
Warm up - walked to the promenade for the speed burst workout
Speed Bursts - Today I choose intervals. Sprint at 100% effort for 20 seconds (about 100 meters), then 40 seconds recovery. Repeat 12 times. I loved this workout! During my first rounds of carb cycling, I did all of my sprints on the elliptical because my knee was not cooperating back then. When I did the Shred program, I did some run/walk intervals and called them sprints. Now I'm loving that I can run them and the knee is responding ok with it. Each sprint got a little harder than the last until by the end, my legs were feeling like jello.
For fun, I brought along the GoPro Hero 4 and took a video of the sprint workout. Here's a collection of picture grabs. While we did our sprints, the weather changed completely. It was overcast and even sprinkled a bit at the start, but by the end the sun was shining and we were starting to melt.
AB Circuit - bicycles, crunches and leg lifts on the captain's chair ---> these are tough.
Cool down - walked home via the big hill to stay in the fat burning zone for low intensity cardio.
Remember that mention of being poolside? I really spent most of my 90 minutes in the water because it was so hot. Living easy and still burning fat ;)
