Got in the 11k route in 2:03:05, five minutes slower than last time. I think the culprit is the shoes I bought. They are crap and are showing major wear after less than 15 miles. So I'll see if I can exchange them. None-the-less, I got in the walk and burned the calories.

Again, a very good workout. I tried to keep the pace closer to 13 mph today. I still hit the 10s, but possibly not quite as hard. My peak HR was back down below 190 bpm.

Walked the 11k course yesterday evening. The uphill initial half was a new low at 58:46, but my feet were really starting to hurt because the shoes I was trying were a size too big and so my total time was 1:01:11.

Reading through your endeavors here is inspiring me, I had a long walk this morning, 9,000 steps. Committed to minimum 30 minutes of something as the only way to keep BG down...see you in the journals...

I'm so glad to hear that. Now if only I could inspire Phoebes to start exercising. Last night she did give me permission to TRY to talk her into it, so that's a start.

Started with a resistance level of 4 instead of 2 and ended with a resistance level of 6 instead of 4. Peak heart rate was noticeably higher, even though I tried to keep the speed down close to 13 mph. It might be because of the lack of calories over the last week or perhaps I am overtraining a bit. We'll see what develops.

Coached Phoebe on her first workout, so the timings were well off and, as a result, I didn't break a sweat today whereas normally the LBWO gets me a moderate sweat.

Slowed the target speed to 12 mph but raised the floors of the intervals from resistance level 4 to 6 to partially compensate. Was primarily interested to see what it did for my heart rate. As expected, it dropped somewhat and was lower than when I started at this speed but a lower resistance level floor, so I call that progress.

My natural pace was up at or above 13 mph most of the time, so I just went with it. I increased the intensity on the ramp-up of each interval just a bit.
