No worries Chris, I know how to take you
& that's ok Milkway...if anything I always end up showing how touchy I am. Sometimes I think I am too open & honest in these forums, then again if one speaks his mind often, one has to expect to get bit. n/p Milkway...it's all peaches and cream.
OK MY MORNING RUN
Start Time: 6:15am
.......who cares at this stage!
5 minutes of an atempted Sit up program
Don't want to go too hard at it today...will be doing resistance training in the shed. Overall the run progressed not bad at all. It did not break me, but I did get another good sweat up. The course is mainly downhill for 1.5Km and uphill for another 1.5 on the way back.
I started off as usual trudging along the flat section of road, sucking air in and out weighting for the muscles to warm up. I'm still at that stage where the muscles start to tire before the lungs do; BUT I notice that, the intervals are getting longer between those events. I estimate that if I keep it up, and push myself without the pain (but strain), In two weeks I will actually be able to jog...
Ok, so now you can see me walking/jogging/walking/jogging breathing, gasping, and taking deep breaths...I start having a conversation with myself on the side of the road. Don’t worry, this condition is common to most people exercising in the early stages, you will become mentally stable as you get fitter. I figured, as I approached the downside of the slope I could run for a longer stint...so I did...I just took it easy on the way down & really enjoyed gravity as I leaned back- ever so slightly...eventually as always, I came to a walking pace, but enjoyed this down slope for another few minutes of walk/jog and so on...
Well all good thing come to an end...I had to turn around and head for home...Breakfast was beckoning...as I turn...OMG 1.5km or uphill...not to worry, this is where I stagger/walk/stagger/walk and so on...as my heart rate drops and I can now breath a little easier, I can now start my uphill approach...Micro Burst
of walk/jog/walk, that is to say the same as when I came down, but at much smaller increments...This way the trip home was bearable but still beneficial.
I have to say, the inclusion of using a pulse monitoring watch has been very helpful. For my temperament it helps me not to worry when I am walking as I can clearly see my pulse rate racing away & then when I do start jogging again I enjoy seeing it rise dramatically. (well that’s why avatar emote is using a hammer up there) But yea, that pulsar watch really helps me to pace myself...Thanks for the loan Chris.
Well that’s that...I've got house work to do before my next training session...I hope you enjoyed my run...I know if I keep it up< I will soon be able to enjoy it..Have a good day all
