I've been kicking my own ass -- and loving it!
Anyway, yesterday I did the gym and while I was on the treadmill, I did one three-minute schleppy-run for three solid minutes! Prior to that I did one run for two minutes, and then later did another one for nearly two minutes. But THREE minutes! I've never run that long at one spell before. I know it's the most pathetic little accomplishment ever, but I felt very proud. :)
Today I had classes again, so I went to the gym early. The thing is, I don't have my first class until 3:00, and last week I left the house around 12:30, in order to get there about 1:30 and work out until about 2:45 or so before I start changing clothes and walk across campus to class.
Well, today I left at 11:30 and never thought about it until I was halfway to school. I was like, OH CRAP, then figured, meh, that just means I can work out for over TWO hours. Which I did.
I did 30 minutes on the elliptical, then 30 minutes on the treadmill (tried jogging again but only did about a 90 seconds because my knees are a bit sore and stiff, so I increased the incline pretty high), then did 45 minutes lower body weight training (yesterday was upper body), then back to the cardio for 30 minutes on the recumbant bike. I checked my GoWear Fit and I did 800 calories during that time between 12:30 and 3:00!! Feels GOOD!
