Midlife crisis or long overdue change? Week 3

Sorry about not posting this yesterday. I was soaking my poor feet, and it felt so good. Yup I have blisters, not just one foot, but both feet. However it isn’t stopping me, I picked up a pair of cushion insoles to add to my cross trainers. The stats for the week, 2 x 30 minutes on the tread mill and 2 10km plus power walks. The treadmill results had me worried for a few minutes, on Monday. I was doing 5km/h and my heart rate average was only 124, which was lower than it was 2 weeks ago, even though I was running 0.8km/h faster. Talked to one of the trainers, and he congratulated me, he said it was a good sign, and recommended that I change to the hill profile once a week, instead of the 400m track circuit. He explained that I have improved my cardiovascular system enough that, my heart isn’t working as hard as it was only 2 weeks ago.

Now for the best news, weight still 92kg, however I am back to having a 91cm waist. This week will be adding another exercise to my routine.

  1. It’s all muscle, Keith! Good for you for being pro-active.

  2. Age is a number. I think a lot of times we just think we’ll be able to do less than when we were younger, so we slow down. I hope if I make it to 90, I’ll still be walking like a soldier on a mission causing the twenty somethings who are trying to keep up to gasp for air! πŸ˜‰
