Interval training update [Nov. 30th, 2011|11:49 am]
John
6 intervals, two minutes jogging, 1.5 walking, with no aerobic-fitness warnings, so, at 20.5 minutes, I figured...

Wait, 20.5? 6 x 3.5 = 3 x7 = 21... damn it.

Anyway: 7 intervals, and the last one was on a minute's rest. Then, after a bit more than 1.5 minutes walking, I tried another, slowly and carefully, and got another minute and a half. That was starting to make me feel mildly headache-y, so I stopped right then.

Maybe a bit too much - we'll see. I think I'll be fine if I just take it easy for the rest of the day.

If that doesn't work, then... well, I'm trying to learn how I feel when I'm over-doing it. I think I only got close today, so if I actually overdid it, I need to recalibrate.

Interval training is no longer my normal exercise; I'm now using my step bench, raised up one level, stepping up, or side to side, for 30 minutes, usually while watching TV.

(Since I'm programming in Powershell these days, I insist on thinking of this as "level 1" and "level 0" means "flat on the floor, not raised any higher." Powershell uses 0 based arrays, you see.)

Clearly it's been working well, because my last interval set got me zonked after fewer intervals.

Is it wrong of me to love that, in the middle of exercise-geeking, you're also math- and programmer-geeking?
