iFit Workout, Becan, Mexico

August 27, 2015

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!

Tulum, Maya Site

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.

Carbo San Lucas, Mexico

This is one of my iFit incline training workouts. ¬†Not my best. ¬†I was tired and I did this a 10pm. ¬†Too late!! ¬†30% incline just about killed me. But I got it done and that’s all that matters ūüôā Want to learn more about Cabo San Lucas, Mexico? ¬†Click on the link below the picture. ¬†It’s a beautiful area. ¬†I may have to take a vacation there one day!!

Zoo Zurich, Switzerland Incline Workout

Zoo Zurich, Switzerland

¬†(Click on pictures to be directed to the zoo’s personal website)

The Z√ľrich Zoo, situated on a hillside away from downtown, is excellent. It‚Äôs compact, tree-filled and has about 2,000 animals from 250 different species. There are tropical rainforests and an enormous biosphere. The fascinating Madagascar pavilion and the elephant house are worth a look. That statement was provided by TripAdvisor¬†. ¬†If you go to their website there are 179 photographs of the zoo that visitors have displayed.

Now about my workout! ¬†As you all know by now I use the NordicTrack X9i incline trainer. ¬†I pulled up the map of this zoo which gave me a 2 mile loop around the area. ¬†I saw a lot of pretty vegetation but no animals ūüė¶ ¬†Google maps mostly kept their camera on the visitor trails that go through the park. ¬†They didn’t go off trail to some of the exhibits, which would have been really cool if they did!! But back on subject, the image below shows my map and stats for this workout. ¬†I didn’t follow the planned workout the treadmill had for me, I spiced mine up with incline increases up to 25% incline. ¬†Yes, the time is slow for 2 miles, but when you add the elevation to the program, well sometimes you just have to slow down. ¬†At least I do ūüôā ¬†Listed below are my elevation times……..
