Sustained Incline Training for EBC Trek
TIP Hill and treadmill incline training is important preparation for the EBC trek.
Having a personal trainer helps even if you live with them! ‘Smile!’ he said. I flung the towel at him. He laughed, ‘Straighten up. Strengthen those back muscles. Do 1500.’
Correcting my slight stoop with a hand either side of my lower back. Easy for him to say he wasn’t the one on the level 15 step incline, the highest on the treadmill. ‘Do you want the ipod? Turn on the air conditioner.’ No all I want is peace. Go away and let me mull on my blog posts that I need to write and publish. I finished the 1500 vertical feet in 51 minutes.
Now hopefully he will be happy given I missed my mid week training session. I look at the 555 calories burnt and am reminded of the two pieces of homemade banana cake I ate for breakfast.
