    Default WEEK 4: 4 weeks of exercise is better than 3 weeks of exercise

    Oh, I guess I should go ahead and post the week's results, shouldn't I?

    Week 3 is an important week, as it's often the week people start losing that initial burst of momentum and their bodies start feeling a bit drained. As such, week 3 is a pretty natural place to start using cheats. We gotta pace ourselves for the long haul, and we do that by taking breaks!

    It's also been really, really great hearing about everyone's exercises. You guys have been very inspirational!

    (Blah blah blah, I guess I should just shut up already and post the report, huh?)

    * The time of the exercise. Morning sidewalk venture vs afternoon track.
    * Tracks almost never have a good breeze, and they are hot, so that can wear on you. Sidewalks are more likely to have a open breeze to cool you off, at least in places.

    Psychological:
    * The track is just a loop. BORING. The sidewalk offers more variety which may offer distraction for the mind.
    * Goals are deilinated by "1 lap, 2 lap", instead of unique landmarks.
    * The circumstances - who are you are with - are different on the track, and less enjoyable.

    That's a very serious answer to a rhetorical question.
    Yes, I was thinking about that, trying to figure out why 2 miles is less tiring than 1.5 miles at, by time, about the same speed.

    the ~2mi route is very hilly, and I go there and back, so there wouldn't be any net increase or decrease in elevation, and I usually walk that in the afternoon. :/

    Could you just be having more fun on the mountain side walk? I know I would.

    Also, the hills sort of emulate a form of interval training (higher effort followed by lower effort), which is often more work while feeling easier. That's part of the reason interval training can be so effective.

    Well, you can always use a few more cheats to get rid of it.

    Used one cheat today.

    For better accountability, I'll be reporting each day's results, likely in a single post at the end of the week. I'm traveling every weekend for the next 3 weeks but will do the equivalent of my cardio, example - brisk walking for a minimum of an hour, wherever I am.

    4-5 hours of moving things out of my flooded basement. I'd say that counts as a workout.

    Flooded basements suck. No more than the basement?

    Honestly, I didn't keep track this week--I don't know if I need a cheat or not!

    One cheat day used last week, by the by.
