Since the camping trip I have been training with my wife who is due to run Race for Life on Sunday 24th July which is a distance of 5km. I'm not built to be a runner and prefer to cycle for cardio but thought I would give it a go.
With my PBK3 unit in tow I set to work running in the evenings with Kate.
One thing I did notice was that I was able to run the distance without getting out of breath (the last time I ran for 5k was probably sports day in school sometime in the early 90's and remember getting so out of breath that I was on a nebuliser!!). I have also increased the intensity of my daily training as I am looking to shift a few lbs, this includes some intense cycling (until I sweat) and curcuit training.
To support this I have increased the resistancy of my PBK and moved from 60 breaths to 90 (30 in morning, 30 afternoon and 30 in the evening).
I have also downloaded a "fitness app" on my phone.
Check back next week for the next instalment
