My success story for today...
I joined CURVES on Thursday, 10/18/2007. My program is 5 days a week (Monday thru Friday) of Circuit Training for one hour with my heart-rate between 70% and 85%. 15 minutes of stretching before & after each session.
After missing two weeks at CURVES (Due to travel), I resumed my work-out this morning. I went to bed last night with the intent to get up and go to CURVES this morning. However, when I awoke this morning, I just wasn't "feeling it".
(The drastic temperature change, awaking to my "monthly friend" this morning, fatigue from my trip, having a "rough night" with my asthma during the night, etc.) Knowing the feeling I get from working out, I DID go, but...with the plan to "take it easy" and to do just strength training exercises.
However, upon arriving, I thought that since I was there, I may as well give the entire circuit a try...AND I DID!
After my 15 minute warm-up stretches, I did an hour of COMPLETE CIRCUIT TRAINING. I felt like my heart-rate was at about 85%, but it was only at about 70%. I used my inhaler 15 minutes prior and had to use it again halfway thru my work-out. So, although my asthma was a bit of a problem today, I felt really good after...physically & mentally!
