Pausing To Measure Progress
Thursday, February 18, 2010
A couple days ago I managed to bang my knee and as it was too sore I was off the treadmill. Today I couldn't tolerate yet one MORE day off my 'mill so I decided to get on, but at 4 mph rather than my usual 5+ mph. Used the same incline of 10.
Now a pretty steady constant for me and my 'millwork is that I start sweating around 15 mins. into my workout. I sweat enough to start swabbing with the towel I keep nearby and turn on the built in fan (kicking in my "afterburner"...lol) on my treadmill. I may sweat a little earlier when adjusting to a speed I've recently bumped up to.
Tonight I didn't start sweating enough to bother with the fan until I was 40 mins. into my routine! My body's so accustomed to the 5 mph effort that 4 mph doesn't have NEARLY the effect it used to! I'm sure that must be an indicator of the level of fitness to which I've risen...woo hoo!
Late, darn it...off to bed...keep SPARKING everyone! :-)
