Fitness – How Far I’ve Come

I was going through all of my notes on my phone the other day and found this interval workout.

Now I kind of laugh at it because currently I would not do that workout. Fastest speed 7.2? Too slow to be effective for me currently.

Which is crazy because I used to think that workout was really hard.

Before I started pushing myself

Now 7.2 is like a warmup to faster speeds. I could run a mile in 7.2. Today I did one in 8.0 easily.

And no matter the non changes I see my my physical body I know that I am so much more fit and capable of a lot more in the gym than I was in January when I began making fitness a real priority in my life. When I started really making an effort to get it into my schedule every day.

I can run much faster than I ever even thought possible. I used to believe that I was a really slow runner.

And I can lift a lot more weight than I ever thought possible. Pretty much because I never really tried before.

Right now I am loving my new free gym that is a nice 1 minute walk through the beautifully floral and outdoorsy neighborhood I live in now.photo 2

I love that they refer to the gym as the “spa”. Sounds so much nicer! “I’m going to the health spa!”

  1. I like the health spa title too lol – I am working up to running so 7.2 seems fast to me, but that is neat that over a year later you think it is a warm up – there is hope!
