treadmill slayer

Yeah, that's me, now slaying the treadmill at 6.0km/hr! I'm really pleased as it was only two short weeks ago I was struggling to do 4.5km/hr! After my stint on the treadmill I went into the RPM room and did Tracks One and Two. Needless to say I probably sounded like a seal with a snorkel after that little effort. Wow, have I lost fitness...BUT..I know what I need to do to get it back.

Tomorrow I will be participating in my first full RPM class. I will just do what I can manage and take it easy for the rest of the class - each workout is one step closer back to my previous level of fitness.

I saw the physio today and the shoulder is improving in leaps and bounds. I am due to start pilates in a few weeks and I may also get in the pool if I have time.

I have also made the decision to do some face to face training and nutrition work (I am also stitching up my PN licence) and will be based at Fitness First at Indooroopilly. It provides me with a "base" to work from and I'm looking forward to freeing other people from food jail.

Hi Liz,

That is so awesome for you that you are progressing well.

I went to my first proper RPM tonight and I was huffing and puffing as well.

Am yet to meet Belinda - the Master trainer for RPM in the Canberra area but she teaches on a Monday so I may try and get along to one of her classes.

Good thing about having a base as well!

That's great progress, Liz... you really ARE powering through your recovery.

Weird coincidence: I just organised my PN licence last week.... I need my darn studio set up though to really make the most of it (hurry UP builders!)

Go the treadmill slayer! :) I'm glad things are improving for you. Don't get over excited in RPM - I know I'd probably go too hard if I were in your position.

I know you'll be great at the face to face stuff too. Good luck with your new business line.
