Back in the Saddle

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

I'm back! Bronchitis sure kicked me in the rear! I visited the doc last Tues & took my first meds just after lunchtime. I was so amazed at how much better I felt by evening. I went back to the gym Thursday, just for a 5 (maybe 10) minute stint on the Arc trainer, just to get moving. I lasted 5 minutes, 40 seconds. My legs were spaghetti, I had no strength. I didn't go back until yesterday. On autopilot, I set the Arc for 30 minutes. Wait, I had no strength just a few days ago & hadn't tried since! I pushed myself...and I made it! Oh, it felt so good to be back! Today, I pushed a little harder. I love the feeling after such a workout!

Something I learned: I finally listened to my body! Wow! Thursday, I was chastised by the owner of the gym for being there. Whether he thought it was too soon or thought I was contagious (I wasn't), I don't know. But, that was the first day I listened to my body say it needed to move and I didn't shut it down. I'm proud of me! emoticon
