Go Me!

I'm sorry, but I have to brag a little bit about my workout today. I don't think I've sweat this much since we decided to go hiking in over 100 degree heat index in July. :) I ran a whole mile straight for the first time since joining the gym - in about 12ish minutes, ten minutes on the elliptical, and then I went on the treadmill for another ten minutes which included jogging, a sprint, then cool down. I really think the sprint did wonders for my lungs (I'm still coughing!). I was already exhausted by then, but the person next to me was really encouraging and we did a sprint together (I would have never tried that on my own!). I'm going to try to add that into my gym routine each time, I could really feel it - even though it was only for about thirty seconds. I just feel so good, I'm breathing really well right now; I can't wait to see what my PFTs are in another month!


  1. Congratulations! This is awesome! :)

  2. Thank you! Sometimes I feel kind of funny posting stuff like this, but I hope that it might be encouraging others to get to the gym, instead of me just bragging about myself.

  3. Great job cyster!! Working sprints in was a very smart decision. High intensity interval training gets me every time too :)
