Although I have no delusions about my fitness, I do work in a very physical job & would like to think I'm not a total mush.
I'd be wrong in thinking that.
I got on my new treadmill for the first time today. My goal was to power-walk for a full 30 minutes - & I did! Yay for small miracles!
Even though I achieved my goal, my joy was short lived...because I felt like I was dying.
Not only did my feet hurt like hell (I have this.), the sweat was pouring off of me. BTW, I am sorry for the lovely image you probably just got in your mind.
It's humbling to realize that, at age 26, a brisk 30 minute walk in my air conditioned house has that effect on me.
But, that's the reason why I'm taking this journey. Everyone has to start somewhere.
