Draglist's Journal, 10 Jan 16

Woke at 215.4, down 2.6 from yesterday. Moved pretty slow all day but finally went for a HIIT walk outside. I tried the Dr. Mercola “Sprint 8” process wholeheartedly. That is, warm up walking for four minutes, and then sprint all out for 30 seconds, followed by regular walking for 90 seconds, and then repeat the 30/90 second sprint/walks until you finish 8 sprints. I was going go do that and then complete the circuit by walking normally for 60 minutes. But… it started a cold rain when I was ten minutes into it! So, I turned around and finished the Sprint 8. Ended up doing just 20 minutes. But I did feel a bit more worked out than normal and I was sweating pretty good. I averaged 5 mph overall on my walk/run, which is higher than I normally get. But I only topped out at 120 bpm! Got a great 213.8 weigh in upon my return and then 213.4 a bit later. I am looking for a good elliptical on Craigslist and will replace my treadmill so that I can go all out during sprints. Another thing that this type of exercise is supposed to do is flood your body with Human Growth Hormone as you get gassed during the sprints. I need that because after a year of really hard cardio, I’m not losing body fat like I want. I will also use this Sprint 8 method during weight lifting, perhaps on alternate days from running.

Thanks, all. Will keep on doing that (or a version of it if I'm stuck inside). Can't get the higher speeds safely on my current treadmill. Have a great week!
