This month three of the JTX office and warehouse team have been putting the JTX Sprint7 treadmill through its paces. They each have very different goals and approaches; fat burning, fitness and rehabilitation after a long standing knee injury. They will walk, run, sprint and pant their way through their own home made fitness programmes. Here’s how they are getting on…
Have you been sticking to your goals this week? In a word, no! Well, not quite. This week has seen the weather turn into glorious sunshine and soaring temperatures, which has meant an even harder effort to get running. I have, however, managed two interval 20 minute sessions, involving up hill walking at a very brisk pace. I’ve also been swimming at the local pool… and even in the sea!
What are your goals for the rest of the month? Only 6 days to go in May. Next week will see the final push- the plan is to get running for at least 5 minutes of running with a half hour treadmill workout, 3 times in a week.
Have you been sticking to your goals this week? Almost! Like Jen, I have found it a little harder in this heat. Things have also been very busy here at JTX, with lots of exciting developments. I do find that running can really help with stress though- it seems to use up all the spare adrenaline and help you to regain focus.
What are your goals for the rest of the month? My knee is still injury free which is amazing! I am planning to keep on keeping on! I plan to run three times next week (Monday, Wednesday and Friday) – a 5k on Monday and Wednesday and a 10k on Friday to complete my May challenge.
