That would probably be the ONLY reason for me to EVER run again :-)

As a part of becoming the best/healthiest I can be before the end of 2012, I am giving myself 4 months to slowly change some habits that have crept back in and solidify the good stuff that I already have going:

  • walk 60 miles
  • get back to running, run 20 miles
  • cut down from 4 cups of coffee/day to just one :-)
  • work my Italian lessons
  • get back to meditation and visualization

My workouts today:

A view worth running for early in the morning!!!

Happy Spring from amazingly warm Boston!

And what a wonderful day it was - Tuesday = Juice fast day!

  • Breakfast: 1 pint of grapefruit juice (2 grapefruits)
  • During the day: 22 oz green veggie juice (kale, cucumber, celery, green pepper, ginger, lemon peeled, green apple, cilantro)
  • Dinner: 1 pint of red juice (carrots, beats, ginger, lemon, pear)

Wanted to run tonight, but my legs still felt like rocks due to my Sunday run and Monday hike :-) so I did 1 hour (4 miles) of speed walking outside, so nice to be able to be out of the gym and in the fresh air!

Happy Juicing!!!

All day today, I cannot wait to get out of work and go interval running :-) I am hooked on it, such a hard cardio, but such a huge high and reward after. And to think I have never been big into running and now I do it 3-4 x a week is amazing.

I used to do 1 minute high intensity running, 1 minute walking, but I started doing intervals suggested by Bob Harper on the Biggest Looser (love the show and love him!)

They go as follows:

  • 5 min warm up
  • 10 min run
  • 2 min recover (walk)
  • 8 min run
  • 2 min recover
  • 6 min run
  • 2 min recover
  • 4 min run
  • 2 min recover
  • 2 min run
  • 2 min recover
  • cooldown for 5 min OR repeat if you are up for it :-)

Bob Harper claims it will “torch the fat right off your body”, and I bet it kicks your metabolism in a very high gear!!!

Happy running, kick some ass today!
