One, Two, Three

7 Feb

Good morning! Today is going to be a great day (minus the fact that I have an essay test today and another test Thursday); it began with an interval workout, trained a client and will be non-stop work and school untill 4pm tonight!

In my efforts to provide you with tons of workouts to complete on the pink treadmills to raise money for Miles 4 Kay, I’ve created another one to add to the list:

  • warm-up ~5 minutes
  • 1 min. @ 8.0 mph
  • 1 min. @ 7.0 mph
  • 2 mins. @ 8.0 mph
  • 2 mins @ 7.0
  • 3 mins. @ 8.0
  • 3 mins. @ 7.0   ^repeat 3X
  • 3 mins. @ 8.5
  • 2 mins. @ 6.5
  • 2 mins @ 6.2
  • cool down

But don’t stop if you’re not at a mile (i.e. 5.43 or 6.88)! Keep running until you reach one (6.0 or 7.0). Remember, every mile logged on the pink treadmills raises $.10!

Happy Running!!


Miles 4 Kay

1 Feb

February 1 kicks off the Miles 4 Kay, a program that raises awareness and funds for women’s cancer. Initiated by Kay Yow herself, she teamed up “with the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) and The V Foundation for Cancer Research to form the Kay Yow Cancer Fund, a 501 c(3) charitable organization committed to being a part of finding an answer in the fight against women’s cancers through raising money for scientific research, assisting the underserved and unifying people for a common cause,” (source). University Recreation is helping raise awareness by wearing our pink shirts and logging miles on the pink treadmills! $.10 per mile will be donated to the Kay Yow Cancer Fund during the month of February.

Not only is running or walking on a pink treadmill honorable enough by itself..but knowing that every step taken is helping a great foundation- worth all the glisteningsweat and miles!
