First day back in the gym
Wednesday, June 19, 2013
I finally got over and back into the gym today. It was too warm to walk around the neighborhood and I had to go by the ATM & market. Hit the ATM then the gym for a 65 mins. on the treadmill, then the market. I only walked at a steady pace on the treadmill with 3.5 being my comfort limit. I stayed at that pace with a .5 incline and then lowered down to 3.3. Wasn't fast by any means but felt good to just walk along. I did start to get sore a bit about 25 mins. into the walk so that is why I backed off down to 3.3. I seem to do OK at that speed without pain in my right ankle (the one I had surgery on in Dec.). Will have to see how I feel later on tonight.
Jeff has been working on my car most of the day and he hopes it is fixed this time. We have had the A/C on since around 10:30am when it was already in the upper 70's with a slight Santa Ana wind (warm). Since the house is so well insulated and we have all new windows we are using the A/C a lot less then we use too.
I have a doctors appointment in the morning with a new family doctor. Ours retired a couple of years ago and I have been using my Rhumatologist on all paperwork as primary. He wants me to see this doctor to get established, which is good. Everytime I have been sick over the last 2 yrs I have had to go to a different doctor and haven't found one I totally like. Wish me luck with this one. TTYL
