Life Fitness Treadmill
Standing heart rate: 85
Workout heart rate: 110--155
Workout mode: Hill, level 11 at 2.6--3.0 mph
Calories: 601 Distance: 2:79 Time: 65:00
Notes: First time on the Hill mode. I didn't like the Hill. It didn't seem enough of a challenge. Never thought I would say that. And the numbers aren't any different than the random. Hmmmm. Maybe I need to try the cardio or fat burn modes.
Here's what Life Fitness owner's manuals say about the workout modes:
RANDOM is an interval training workout of constantly changing intensity levels that occur in no regular pattern or progression.
HILL is an interval training workout. Intervals are periods of intense aerobic exercise separated by regular periods of lower-intensity exercise.
FAT BURN is a low-intensity workout for burning the body’s fat reserves. The user wears a heart rate chest strap, or grasps the Lifepulse sensors continuously. The program adjusts the intensity level through changing the incline (elevation), based on the actual heart rate, to maintain the rate at 65 percent of the theoretical maximum.
CARDIO is a higher intensity workout for more fit users, emphasizing cardiovascular benefits and maximum fat burning. The user wears a heart rate chest strap, or grasps the Lifepulse sensors continuously. The program adjusts the intensity level, based on the actual heart rate, to maintain the rate at 80 percent of the theoretical maximum.
I've got to do SOMETHING fun and different on that treadmill because this week I took this photographic reality check posted below, and I almost gave up all positive thoughts about another guy, let alone Mr. Listener, ever kissing me.
Yeaaaaah. OH WELL, it is what it is. And seeing this is important. Because I was starting to feel good, the kind of feel good that makes me slack off. And now there will be no slacking off. None.
And on that note, I'm off to visit with my mother for a few hours. With the dogs. And my brother. And one of my sisters. My goal: exercise while there and DO NOT stop and eat fast food on the way there or back. Please oh please oh please let me be good to myself.
