iFit Workout, Becan, Mexico

Day 2 of my journey ūüôā Today I added just a tiny bit of mileage past 1 mile. ¬†I ended up completing 1.26 miles today, following my walk-run-walk program. ¬†Today was a hectic day and usually I put my workouts towards the back of the day (hence why I ended up not doing them!). ¬†But today I did it as soon as possible so that nothing could get in the way. ¬†Below is my graph for my workout.

The scenery was very shady with visions of some of the Mayan structures in view. ¬†Most of the map was through a park like setting. ¬†It’s really nice to do these workouts when you have a tablet as part of the equipment and you can watch photo slides of the different areas. ¬†My times are slow and once I get up to speed I will post them. ¬†I have to remind myself it’s all about the baby steps in the right direction!

Well I am back at it! ¬†I am going to post my workouts as I prepare for a 10k run at Walt Disney World in April, 2016. ¬†I am starting at ground zero. ¬†Literally! ¬†I haven’t done any jogging since my back surgery 5 years ago. ¬†Most of my training will be using NordicTrack’s X9i incline trainer. ¬†I am following the Jeff Galloway¬†training program, which consists of a run-walk-run program. ¬†He writes many of the training programs to help Walt Disney participants complete their 10ks, half-marathons or full marathons. ¬†Here is an example of his training workouts for some of the upcoming races at Walt Disney World and Walt Disneyland (training).

So today I just did a very easy 1 mile workout.  The workout I chose took me around the the Pre-Columbian Maya walled city.  You can click on the link under the photo above for more information.  The route was very scenic and relaxing.  It consisted of views of some of the Mayan ruins and the white sandy beaches and beautiful ocean.  My legs were wondering what the heck was going on as I picked up a short jog here and there to get back into the swing of things.  Below is a chart of my workout showing the incline and elevation.

All in all, I’m glad I now have a challenge to works toward. ¬†Here is the race information for the Walt Disney World Star Wars Events. ¬†Check out the rundisney.com site¬†¬†and¬†you can find other races, not only on the east coast, but on the west coast as well. ¬†If anyone here is preparing for one of these events, your feedback is greatly appreciated.
