I've completed 3 months of solid workouts with a trainer at my gym, 3 evenings a week. These have included strength training, functional training, stability work and cardio. I can see small changes in my body but I feel entirely different. I sleep very well. In addition I've added a few other workouts a week, depending. I've only lost 5 lbs. I've gained a lot of muscle and lost an inch in the waist.
March 28th I'll take a VO2 running test that will help tailor my various run workouts to the most productive design. My new Polar 800RX Heart Monitor, will give me data that I can share with my coach to keep me on track.
In April I am going to join a more intense training at the gym, a "bootcamp" on endurance, 3 nights a week. Functional training on the off nights and Saturdays. That'll be 6 days a week. I'll move my long run to Saturday to have a day off on Sunday.
SO THAT'S PROGRESS! Steady workouts evolving to a higher level. From a standing start in December, when I had not worked out in almost 2 years. I'm very encouraged, because I know this program will continue to have the right effect.
