I thought that my husband was going to work overtime today, so I decided that I wanted to try my first five mile DVD on a day that I didn't have to work. Turns out, he didn't have to work, but he hung out in the bedroom so I could do my workout. This thing was intense.
I'm really glad that I did this on a Saturday. I've only done one 4 mile routine before, so I'm not really sure what possessed me to do a 5 mile, but I wanted to try. I'm glad I did, but WOW! There is essentially no warm up in this workout. You do some walking in place while she talks a bit.
That's followed by some gentle side steps, but she usually goes about five minutes before the pace kicks up. It's a few more minutes before she usually has you digging into the side steps, but in this workout, she started digging into those sidesteps at about the three minute mark. She didn't start off by going over the steps either.
She did mention that if we were doing this DVD that we were veteran walkers and our bodies could handle getting right into the workout.
By the same concept, I guess she figured that we didn't need an intro on the steps. I can see her point too. Each mile had it's own theme of sorts. It came with a different concept, different clothes and sometimes different people. At the half mile point of each mile, she makes an announcement that you're halfway through the mile.
At one point, she said that we were half way down with the workout, and I thought to myself that it had gone quickly and I could handle the full workout no problem. She then corrected herself and said halfway through the mile. I think that happened in the second mile. The first mile used the hand weights that look more like wrist or ankle weights, but she just holds onto them.
You can see them here. Nothing major happens in this mile. Other than the basic steps of walking in place, side steps, front kicks and knee lifts, nothing too crazy gets introduced. There are kicks backs and walking forward two counts and back two counts. The are movements are pretty typical stuff like clapping when you walking up and back, raising your arms up over your head and other stuff like that.
The second mile is "the fastest mile" according to Leslie. I didn't time it, but it did seem to go very quickly. There were jogging intervals in this mile, but there were no walk boosters. Again, nothing crazy happened and the moves stayed pretty basic. They were pretty fast and they were stacked with not so much walking in place in between them.
This one was definitely about keeping the feet moving fast. There were arm movements too, but it was more about the feet. The third mile had the walk belt. This was the longest mile of my life. I'm not really sure why, but this was like the never ending mile for me. I didn't use the belt, and to be honest, the walkers didn't use it much either. It took at least five minutes for her to even get to the belt and then she didn't do much with it. It was interesting to see that the tubes on her belt looked like they had been knotted up to make them shorter.
She also talked about holding them by the base of the handle to make it more intense. This mile was more of the same moves with nothing different happening.
The fourth mile was a fast mile again.
