Today I thought I would change things up a little. I have been reading a lot about HIIT - High Intensity Interval Training. This isn't something new but is just on the radar lately. Here is how it works and how I applied it tonight:

I rode my recumbent bike for 20 minutes.
3 min - average speed (13mph) average resistance (level 2)
2 min - sprinted as fast as I can about 18mph
3 min - average speed and resistance
2 min - increased resistance by 4 levels and climbed a big hill
3 min - average speed and resistance
2 min - sprint
2 min - average speed and resistance
2 min - climbed the hill again
1 min - cool down, slowed down gradually

I also needed to some quick strength training so I did 50 half sit-ups and 50 pushups (on my knees, not full position). Total workout time 30 min.

HIIT is not meant to be done daily. It is a quick way to burn more calories, give your workout variety, and challenge yourself. However, any time you do something quickly you are at a greater risk of injury. Exercise movements should be done slower and smoothly. Even when you go faster in cardio you don't want to be jerky or unstable. So I will write an article on HIIT soon, or did I just write it? TJ

Yesterday I walked for several miles along the Clearwater beach, so that was very nice.

Today I'll hike a few miles on a nearby trail in my favorite swamp. I'd like to also do some yoga and use the elliptical trainer.

You are totally ambitious. I think it would be great to walk on the beach. I take it your in Florida? Be careful in the swamp you might meet some water moccasins or gators.

Thanks for sharing.

Yes, spending a month visiting with family in central Florida. Just got back from my three miles of walking in the swamp. I also did a little bit of walking around the neighborhood pond.

It's a little humid right now, but i hope to get in some yoga tonite - even if just easy stretchy stuff.

I envy you. I am a warm weather person. Good job on the walking. I'm from Kentucky and I know all about humidity.

Have fun with your yoga.

Hello everyone. Did you exercise today? Did you take a great walk like Jillie? Did you ride your recumbent bike? Did you take a Zumba class? It all sounds great doesn't it.

Today I got up really late because I am a night owl and stay up really late. I woke up thinking about yoga. Yeah, I'm going to have a yoga day, I told myself! All day I looked forward to doing yoga and planning what sequence to do.

This evening at 5:30pm (I like to exercise in the late afternoon or early evening. Probably has something to do with my crazy hours.) I rolled out the pink yoga mat and sat down ready to go.

I started with several minutes of Alternate Nostril breathing, which is great for relaxing a racing mind. Then I went through a 15 min sequence for strength building. Next I did a 15 min energizing sequence. After that I did some nice relaxing floor poses and finished with relaxation.

Even though I only did 2, 15 min sequences it took me 1 hour. Of course I added some other stuff but the real reason is that I hold each posture longer than suggested which is usually 5 breaths. I hold for 8-10 breaths, it just feels good for me. I really enjoyed tonight's yoga practice.

Tomorrow is Saturday so I plan on taking the day off. Talk to me. TJ

OKay, I did some really gentle yoga last night while watching tv.

Today I would like to get in more yoga, and hit the elliptical while reading.
