almost instant self esteem boost

Saturday, December 15, 2012

do 30 minutes on the treadmill. speed: 3 mph, incline: 10%.

yes, i said 10%. 1 with a 0 after it. i bet you didn't realize the treadmill incline goes up that high, did you? [actually, i think most go up to 15% (aka "just grab the bars and hang on for dear life")]

running makes me extremely short of breath (yayyyy asthma!), so when i hit the treadmill i generally power walk on an incline. i couldn't remember if i'd ever gone up to 10%, so i figured it wouldn't hurt to try it this morning. and, ok, maybe i did more like 25 minutes. but when i finished the workout, i was like "i DID that ish right there." i felt like a boss.

    Great job. I recently began doing inclines on the treadmill and I've only ventured as high as 6. Hope to make it to 10 one day. Great job.

    I have asthma too but I take a maintenance inhaler every morning. That way I never have attacks. It is called Symbicort. I should emphasize though I have very severe asthma. Congratulations on doing something you didn't think was possible. You definitely were the boss on that machine. Take that treadmill - in your face, treadmill! My treadmill doesn't have percentages but I know at 4.8 mile incline it is all that I can do to keep running and not fly off somewhere. emoticon emoticon
