In an effort to increase the intensity of my workout, I started this week by jogging for 4 minutes and walking for 1 minute for a total of 40 minutes. I was VERY tired by the time I finished, but went ahead and did 2 video workouts afterwards. I feel like I have accomplished something, and I think I will definitely sleep well tonight!
Some limitations are physical and you should definitely slow down but it the limitation only is in your mind try to challenge your self to do just a little more each day. I would definitely chart your progress to watch yourself improve it is a great boost.

Limitations with mobility does and can but a crimp into ones workouts. However, with a little modification I have increase my intensity more this week than I thought I could. Always hear if you put your mind to it, you can do anything. That is so,so right. Have a good week 3 ALL.

Way to go! I wish I could motivate myself to increase intensity with out my trainer telling me to do it. But hey I am still moving faster than someone on the couch! Here's to you having a speedy recovery!

It's hard to do certain cardio with an injured knee, but I love my dual trainer elliptical, I can get a great workout using it like a bike...I increased the intensity and wow what a workout...I have to be careful and decrease it if the pain hits, but it is giving me a run for my money...
This week is going great...
Enjoy Everyday as if it is Your Last...and Live your Life to the Fullest
