Day 4, October 21: Workout and Food Diary

Day 4 on the journey. Here is what I did and what I ate.

40 minutes of cardio, including stationary bike and treadmill for 20 minutes each.
No boot camp today!

Cool down: General lower body stretch focusing on hips, legs and calves – about 10 minutes.

I started on the treadmill. After walking for 5 minutes, I started the intervals with a 2-minute run at 6.0 mph followed by a 2-minute walk at 4.0 mph. The next running interval was also at 6.0 mph. The final two running intervals were at 6.5 and 7.0 mph, respectively. Each running interval was followed by a 2-minute walking interval at 4.0 mph. This was pretty tough, particularly the last interval. I’d rate this as a 9 on the 0-10 scale.

I went straight to the bike after the treadmill. After a 2 minute warm-up, the intervals started. I followed the same protocol as yesterday, although I didn’t increase the intensity at the end. The treadmill wore me out a little too much for that. Overall, this was a solid 8 on the 0-10 scale.

Food Diary
Breakfast, 6:00 AM: Ground turkey breakfast taco with mushrooms and mixed bell peppers.
Snack, 9:30 AM: No snack.
Lunch, 12:00 PM: Turkey sandwich on whole wheat bread
Snack, 3:00 PM: No snack – too involved with football game (what was Greg Davis thinking?)
Dinner, 6:00 PM: Grilled chicken fajitas, with all the trimmings (basically okay).
Snack, 9:00 PM: No snack – too much for dinner.

Fluids: Throughout the day, at least 3.0 L of water. No green tea and 1 diet coke. Three coronas with dinner.

That’s day four, your thoughts????

Since I didn’t do a Boot Camp workout, there are no photos. But, if you look through this series, you’ll see plenty of examples my Boot Camp program.
