My HIIT workout; Windows 7 Pre-order reminder.

The extra two minutes I added to my HIIT workout yesterday really hurt. If you think two additional minutes of HIIT doesn’t sound hard, the you’re not doing HIIT right. My intervals right now are also pretty tough: 2 minute warm-up followed by repeating intervals of 45 seconds all out (all out means 100% effort)/45 seconds active recovery. Next week I’ll reduce the total workout time to 14 minutes, but change the intervals to 45 seconds all out/30 seconds active recovery. Get a few intervals deep into that workout and the 30 seconds of “rest” will seem more like 3 seconds, I assure you. Over the next few weeks I’ll ramp up the length of the workout until I reach 18 minutes (or have a heart attack, whichever comes first).

I’m really enjoying my new computer. The trouble of migrating to a new system was absolutely worth it. My only regret is that I put it off for so long. It’s so nice to be able to do my work without suffering through the long delays, lockups and crashes that I put up with so many years. As soon as I got the computer I wiped the drive and installed Windows 7 Release Candidate (64-bit). There were a few issues getting everything working right (and a few remaining issues), but overall I’m very pleased with the O/S. It’s so much better than Vista, which I loathe. I happily pre-ordered Windows 7 Professional, which will be released in mid-October. Right now you can pre-order Windows 7 Home Premium and Professional editions at half off, but you only have until July 11th to do so. If you plan to upgrade, be sure to take advantage of the huge price break!

I’m having a tough time getting caught up on my backlog of work. If things stay relatively quiet today and tomorrow I think I may be fully caught up by the end of the week. So, that said, I’m going to wrap up here and get back to it!
