I decided to push myself today. I started like I have been running 10 minutes on the treadmill at 4.8mph and finished the cooldown on 5.5mph. I really had to go to the bathroom when that was done, so I hurried in there. When I came back out, I decided to get back on the treadmill. I only set it for 5 minutes, but I set it to 5.0 to start to push myself to run a little longer.
Aside from some decent calorie burn, I did this because it occurred to me that where I push myself today it will be easier next time. My muscle memory has been improving, and I really don’t start to feel the intensity of the run until around minute 5-6 now. If I can push myself to run considerably longer, then perhaps on my next visit I won’t feel it until minute 7. The breathing is getting better. I felt air get down to my diaphragm, but it was still a struggle.
The rest of my visit was arm day. I knew that next arm day will be the day I do my monthly status update, so I pushed myself today to see where I’m truly at. It made me feel good when I saw that the super ripped guy who used the Pulldown machine before me was on the 100lb setting, and I have been doing 85lbs. I may not be ripped, but for someone with an “extremly obese” BMI, I feel good when I’m catching up.
Other than that, it was a normal day! I’m looking forward to sharing my official stats Friday. Buckle up for some cool stuff folks!
