It was a busy day that started with running my son and his friend over to Explorer Training (volunteer firefighter training). After getting home, I knew the day ahead would be hectic so I threw a load of laundry in, loaded the dishwasher & ran it and started my morning workout. I changed things around a bit on the Wii Fit – did more cardio and less strength training since it’s the weekend. I wanted to give my abs and thighs a break. I wound up doing a slightly longer workout which was a pleasant surprise.
We were given a new couch by a friend so after the morning workout, I moved the old couch, loveseat and tables around to make room for the new piece. Naturally I had to vacuum where the old furniture sat which led to just vacuuming the whole room. Then I maneuvered everything back into place. I must admit, I was breathing hard but it felt pretty good.
After lunch, I hopped on the treadmill. I wanted to at least hit 13 minutes because that would give me 1 hour of “official” exercising for the day – something I haven’t done in years and wondered if I would able to ever do again. I pushed passed that and did 15 minutes with a 2.0 incline. Granted my speed is only 2.7 right now but I still work up a pretty good sweat doing it. My next challenge in coming weeks will to be to do 1 hour all at one shot. I want to get my old endurance back or at least as much of it as I can.
Dinner was more leftovers and I did indulge in a slice of pizza later in the evening. My bad. Still, with all the progress I am making, I felt pretty good about Saturday!
