Another little triumph on the treadmill at work during my lunch break..
As well as my normal walking, I managed to run 2 minutes at a steady 3 mph and just for the hell of it I ran a minute at 4 mph. The final minute at 4 mph made my legs turn to jelly and sweat horribly, but it raised my pulse and gave me a little bit of a cardio workout which will help in trying to reach my goal of 100lbs off by October 1st. The main thing is that I am taking things slowly, one step at a time, an extra minute jogging every-time I use the treadmill.
I propped my iPod up and took a quick clip of my jogging efforts. Embarrassingly it sounds and looks like the treadmill is suffering under the weight of me. But if I can do this and think “the-hell-with-it” then you can too!!
I’ve learned that to succeed one has to not care how one currently looks…. it’s only temporary 🙂
