Can you believe it? I can actually do my little jogs without huffing, puffing and wheezing now! I'm so surprised at how good I feel compared to just three weeks ago. Don't get me wrong - I have a long way to go and most would probably chuckle at my excitement over these little 20-minute sessions, but hey....it's working!
This week, I did 45-second bursts of running with 75-seconds of fast walking recovery. I plan to step up the number of sessions I do in the week ahead, aiming for 5. I also went for a great 1-hour bike ride with D this past weekend and I'd like to make that part of the normal routine as well.
Wish me luck!
PS - forgot to weigh-in on my usual day, but the scale is suggesting I'm down a couple of pounds. I think I'm going to make Fridays my regular weight day, as it's one of the few days I can almost guarantee I'm home and able to post!
