My Cardio training is going smoothly, despite the fact that it has been raining very frequently so, training outside on PE days had to be moved to the gym. I have to say, I think I’d prefer the gym on the account of AC, and there are machines specifically designed to help you exercise, opening up a wide variety of exercises to increase cardiovascular muscle strength. I’ve been certain to use the treadmill any chance I get during those lessons. You know what they say, “Never skip leg day!”, and I have been continuously joining Mr. Metters’ morning training sessions every Wednesday. I have also taken the opportunity to try out the rowing machines as that also tests endurance, as well as the bike machines. Because I was in a gym, I couldn’t help but try the weight machines as well. Even though they focus more on lifting heavy weights rather than steady endurance, it’s still a useful skill to have.
I believe I have been making steady progress towards meeting my goal of being able to run 5km in 30 minutes or less.
