Are you sipping on some water during the cardio? I use to do an hour without drinking water and I'd find that by the last 15 mins my tongue would be dry.

When I've started with cardio, I drank some water every 20min, but for 3-4 weeks, I don't. Just directly after the cardio... then much of it :-)
I think that I generally need less water during training than when i started my "career" in the gym...

But I think you shouldn't save on water... drink a bit after 30 min. probably the body learns to arrange by-and-by...

Today I had my "finish" training... just called it so, because I've now about 7 days gym-holidays, and so I made a "hard" workout today (cardio)...

Vertical Chest Press: 11x77, 3x11x99.2
Shoulder Press: 6x55, 4x7x44, 3x7x55
Chest Press (other machine): 7x77, 7x66, 7x11x55

Dumbbell - Biceps Concentration Curl: 15x19.8, 11x19.8, 11x17.6, 2x11x19.8
Dumbbell - Biceps Curl, Hammer Curl: 11x19.8, 11x17.6

Bent Over Triceps Extension: 10x75.8, 7x75.8, 2x11x46.8

1h5m Cardio (Treadmill) - 10km: first 40 min at 10kmh then went down to 9...8 kmh.. was really hard...

I think this workout was really good, my biceps is burning a little bit and I'm proud of my jogging today and the hours of cardio since last week. Now I'll have a break for 7 days or something (just can do pushups or sth.)...

I don't know, if I had mentioned it, but I've attended in a competition in our gym..."who kills most cals" (4th and 5th Dec), and I was the ONLY participator :lol: .... so I've won this stupid shit and now will get 3 times personal training (a 30 minutes). That's really cool, so I can become acquainted with the rest of the machines and stuff. :-) :-)
For Log: I've done Cross Trainer in the competition: 1,5h + 1h at day 1 and (I think) 1h at day 2, that are 3,5h aka 2100 cals.

Wish you merry xmas :-)

1 hour of cardio is great!

Thanks! I try to increase both... speed (distance) and intensity... but that's not my primary goal... just doing cardio as intensive as possible to get a negative energy balance and loosing fat (work's well...). Later I would like to jog more. By now I'm able to jog for a hour, but everytime I do this my knees ache or any muscle... :cry: have to start a jog training soon to get this problem fixed and getting able to do longer distances. (20 km as far goal would be great, closer goal is to jog the 10km more often... like once a week... that would be pretty cool :D )

:D
