No matter how slow you go, you are still lapping everyone on the couch.
When you are on the treadmill don’t hold on. If you hold on while walking or jogging, it decreases the intensity, which decreases your calorie burn by up to 24 percent.
Doneskies. I actually really enjoyed my run this morning, and I like running for longer periods. I also have a bad ass running playlist, which I got from lululemon. It goes something like this:
The Temper Trap – Resurrection
Arcade Fire – Ready to Start
Yeasayer – O.N.E.
CEO – White Magic
Sleigh Bells – Tell ‘Em
Kanye West – Power
LCD Soundsystem – I Can Change
Robyn – Dancing On My Own
Mark Ronson – You Gave Me Nothing
Drake – Unforgettable ft. Young Jeezy
CEO – Come With Me
Bag Raiders – Sunlight
Deadmau5 – Animal Rights
Florence + the Machine – Dog Days Are Over
Yeasayer – Madder Red
Mumford & Sons – Awake my Soul
Jonsi – Around Us
The whole thing takes about 1.5 hours, which is way longer than my run. So I normally listen to the warm up track, then put my ipod on shuffle until its time to stretch, and skip to the last three songs. But its great for when I work out at the gym :)
I don’t do it for the gap between my thighs.
I do it for the gap between me and the guy behind me on the racecourse.
I don’t do it for the hip bones.
I do it for healthy bones that will carry me through the rest of my life.
I don’t do it for the flat stomach.
