Slowly but surely I'm ramping up the workouts in preparation for the April 1st 10K. I've been getting several cardio level workouts in per week since the new year, mostly on the elliptical. I have also done some speed walking on the treadmill. Soon I will start working in some jogging on the treadmill.

Yesterday I did 42 minutes on the elliptical. I want to be able to easily do 1 hour by the end of the month. I'm working up a sweat and keeping my heart rate in the 130 to 150 range. Sustaining a rate closer to 150 bpm is what I'm shooting for. It is too easy to slack off and let the HR fall on the elliptical. That is harder to do on the treadmill. So next month I plan to phase out the elliptical and get some good hard workouts on the treadmill and perhaps outside pounding the pavement (weather permitting).
