Another Day, Another Workout.

Today was 30 minutes of shoulders and arms with Brittnee. Oy, the weights got heavy, but I survived and felt great afterward. I did 3 sets of planks for abs at the end, and I held each of them for 30 seconds instead of 20. That was quite an improvement, and Brittnee commented on how strong my core was getting. That made me feel good.

Out of my 32 minutes on the treadmill, I jogged for TWENTY MINUTES!!! That is unheard of for me. I can't even believe I did it. I started with 5 minutes of walking to warm up, then jogged for seven, then walked for three to recover, jogged for EIGHT, walked for two, then finished up with five minutes of jogging. I walked at a slow pace for two minutes to bring my heart rate back down, and I was done. I'm still reeling over jogging 2/3 of the time I was on the dreadmill. I can't believe I did it. I think I'll be ready to take it outside to the greenway by the time the weather cools down.

Right now, I'm enjoying a nice Guinness Extra Stout. I think I earned it. :-)
