Today’s exercise has been :-
Workout 1 – treadmill x 30 minutes. 5 minutes warmup followed by 1min/2min intervals – 1 min fast running/2 mins jogging to recover
Workout 2 – with client. Normally I wouldn’t work out with a client but this is someone I have been training for some time so she knows what she is doing and it provides her with extra motivation to workout with me – i.e she likes to see me suffering too!!!
