So sore!

I am sooo sore! My legs and butt are killing me. The day before yesterday, I did Bob's Biggest Loser bootcamp DVD and apparently I really have been slacking because it kicked my butt!

Lately, I have been lazy when I get on the elliptical. I've been working out daily, but these days, I just go slow (altho at a level 6). And my heart rate monitor shows that most of my workout time is spent in fat burn rather than fitness (meaning I put in less work).

How the hell did I ever do 90 minutes on the elliptical every day? What was I thinking? And I wasn't going slow when I did that either! Where'd that girl go?

But why complain about things you're not going to do anything about? Sooo, I was getting annoyed with myself for not putting in enough effort, so I did that DVD and man, it shows how "out of shape" I can get after not doing it for awhile.

And then today, I did my Week 3 C25k run/walk thing. I am actually finding it easier to run for longer periods of time... and by longer, I mean 3 minutes. Haha! My heart rate was in fitness mode the entire time, so that's good.

Attitude of Gratitude: I am getting excited about moving! Hopefully I can find a job soon!

Well done for doing it! sounds like you were ready for a bigger push with the fitness work and you got it!
I will do C25k one day when I weigh less and the risk of knee, ankle damage is reduced. watching your journey through it with interest....well done for finding it easier!

I'm in week 7 of the C25k and I agree it starts to feel good running longer...Now it's all jogging for me though..no walking intervals...
Well done!

I need to start doing the longer times too :(

Yeah, it's easy to lose focus once one is at a point where the basic exercising comes easier...

I took a kickboxing class Monday to push myself. I'd gotten in a rut, too. You & I are on the same part of Couch 25K and I'm finding the same thing: it's easier to jog than walk! Amazing feeling, isn't it?
