The soreness is finally setting in!

LOL! Yesterday was the first time I had been running at least a month. It was an intermittent run considering I was using a 15% incline on the treadmill. I think my goal will be to run the entire hour without having to stop to walk. I wonder if I can accomplish that in 30 days. Well, I can try. Oh, and I did 600 reps of various ab exercises. So, yes. Those are sore, as well. NO EXCUSES! I still have to get the 600 in again today. I may be gingerly doing it but I will be doing it. It may take longer than yesterday, but I will still do it! Stretching is going to be sooooo necessary today!

It can be. But for me it's fun. Besides, one of the things I told my son is that no matter how big he gets I will always be able to kick his butt. I can't let him down. ;-)

Keep on doing it. Do you have a goal? An objective of what you want to attain within a set time frame from your exercises? Without one, you would get discouraged easily.

Yes! I need goals. Otherwise, I get bored. I need something to focus on. Especially, when I know there will be and end result!

@KindredSoul Meet the coach of your gym club and tell them you want to set an achievable goal for yourself. They will help you do so.

@mydanods Thanks, but I live in a very small town and it is obvious I know more about fitness and nutrition far more than the crew that run the gym. I'm good. I had never needed a coach to get where I need or want to be. But again thank you.

I will. I figure if I can train for a marathon in 2 and a half months. I can achieve any of my fitness goals. Oh, a little history about training for the marathon. Before training I would run for 20 minutes, about 2 miles. So, I went from 2 miles to 26.2 miles in 2 and a half months. Not to mention I did 26.2 miles twice two weeks apart. So, I can do this. ;-)

I appreciate pain from exercise. It tells me I'm using muscles I haven't been using and shows me my limits. I listen to my body so that I don't cause irreparable damage. I'm glad to feel it. I get the whole time thing. When I don't have time, I'll do the 7 minute HIIT exercises. You don't think you can accomplish much in 7 minutes, but they are intense! So....again. No excuses for me. Often I'm just being lazy. That includes being too lazy to stop working to work out. LOL!
