5K Your way walk/jog

Wednesday, November 28, 2012

I have been really frustrated with my training on the treadmill because the track kept jerking every time I jog. I called a health club today and talked to someone and they suggested the belt needed tightened.

I got in touch with my masculine side and went to work on the thing. Even took the housing for the motor off. It was an easy fix, actually. I found the part needing work at the back under some plastic flappy thing. I tightened the screws and put the thing back together. When I got my shoes on, I jogged at 5 mph for about 30 seconds without a hitch!!!! I wasn't ever able to go any faster than 4 mph because of the jerking bit. I begin week 2 today so will be walking for 3 and jogging for 1.5. WOO HOO!

I have been able to push myself a bit each time I train. I am encouraged.

Yesterday was a bit of a downer but I am back in the saddle today. I was supposed to do my strength workout yesterday but blew it off because I was having real pain. My traps were giving me fits all day but found a position to sleep in that allowed them to stretch the part that was angry. I am all better today and may actually do both tonight. I am so excited about my workout tonight since the treadmill is fixed.


Did I just say I was excited about working out?????
