Treadmill awesomeness

Yes awesomeness is a word! I went to the rec center in Claremore last night to us the treadmill. I took both babies and Elisabethe. Amos and Erika love the child care there, even if I felt like a horrible mother for taking them at 9 pm. Elisabethe decided that 13 years old is to old for child care and opted to run on the track. I guess treadmill running with me huffing and puffing next to her didn't sound appealing either. I got my headphones on and went to work.

Now I have to say, I have not been running as often as I should. I'm still doing Zumba 3-4 times a week though. I decided to run as long as I could without walking. I warmed up with a 5 min walk at 3.5 mph. Then I sped up to 5 mph. All this is on a .5 incline. I ran for 25 minutes without stopping to walk. Then I slowed down to a walk for 3 min. I thought, "how am I going to jog anymore. I'm spent!". But jog I did. I sped up again for another 10-15 min or so. Then the treadmill slowed down in increments for my 5 min cool down. I was sweaty, red and my legs were jelly. But I did it. Yay me!!


Elisabethe even showed me where some mats were so I could stretch. That is the only thing that saved me from having my legs collapse. The only problem I had was, when I went to bed my legs felt restless, and I couldn't go to sleep. I'm looking forward to possibly going again tonight. Hopefully I don't have the restless leg problem tonight though!

AAANNNNDDDD I haven't posted about my weight loss, but I have gone from 201.4 in May to  187.0 this last Monday. I'm hoping to continue to see the numbers drop. I can't really tell a difference in myself, but other people have been noticing, so  I guess I will keep on trucking!

  1. Awesome! Keep up the good work lady, even doing zumba 3-4x per week is a good work out. A little running on top of that is icing on the cake! -Lanae Bays
