We had it on our schedule this week to walk 8 miles. Since it was supposed to be raining Friday morning, we switched our walk to today. But, it was still cold and rainy this morning. So we called it off.
I was going to work out for two hours on my step.
My step is how I work out on Mondays and Wednesdays usually. On our training schedule, Mondays and Wednesdays at this point are usually a four mile walk. We're at about a fifteen minute mile, so I figured working out nonstop on my step for an hour would be equivalent to walking four miles. Plus, it works out different angles when I step off the front and off the sides than walking straight forward does. It has to be strengthening more muscle groups than simple walking.
"Simple walking" is actually a funny term when you start to get into those longer distances though.
Once you go over a certain amount of miles, the walking is no longer "simple".
At any rate, I only actually worked out on my step for an hour and a half instead of the full two hours I intended. I'll work out again tomorrow.
For now, I need to clean this house and get some more stuff ready for this Halloween business. There are still some things that I need to buy for our costumes.
And stepping on a step for two hours is boring.
What was your workout today?
