That's an excellent work-out, in my mind.

Three cheers for you, CCB.
Thank you! I'm trying to do little things where I can, but I am having a very hard time starting a regular exercise routine.

I don't think couch to 5k is for me because I really don't want to run. I have arthritis and I'd rather do something lower impact. The gym is not an option because our car is dying. So it's between walking and YouTube videos.

well....

interestingly enough I accidentally started week 2 of the C25k.

It consists of 90 seconds running followed by 2 minutes walking. I actually found it easier and was ready to run before the 2 minutes were up. Very odd.

My breathing is the main reason for my lack of progression. I'm trying breathing exercises to expand my lung capacity ( I have always had bad lungs, having had childhood asthma and being prone to respiratory infections; I attribute it to living with smokers almost the entirety of my life) This seems to actually be helping.

I don't feel the endorphins till after I'm done. But they are fanfriggintastic.

Today is Sunday, May 19th, and I exercised for the first time this month. I have had a whole to-do with iron vitamins that made me sick. My dad suggested I test my hematocrit and it was a little low (nothing shocking), so on my own I decided to take extra iron. I already get 18 mg per day (the recommended dose for women) in my multivitamin but I'm vegetarian x decades so I always try to look out for anemia. Anyway, I started taking one 65 mg iron pill per day without food. It made me nauseous but I just persisted on. Then I guess it built up in my system and I started having horrible stomach problems that were hard to get rid of, very severe cramps. Such a nightmare. I went off all my vitamins (I also had been taking B12 and Vitamin D with no problems.). I did that because I think my stomach needs to heal from the iron. Oh, it's been quite a disaster.

Anyway, when I arrived at the gym I was really tired. I sat and read a NY Times article and ate an apple. I talked to La La. She was wearing a bikini and had been sunning herself on the roof. She asked where I'd been, and I told her my story. Somehow getting up and chatting with her energized me a bit, so I went and did my stairmaster, a less stringent routine.

Levels 9 down to 1, repeated for 15 minutes, 30 seconds each level.
Levels 9 down to 1, repeated for 3 minutes, 15 seconds each level.
Then I was exhausted and went rogue, keeping it on Levels 1-3 depending on how I felt. My heart rate was in the 160's, and I didn't want it to get higher so it worked out well. I did the stair master 35 minutes total.

Then I did 30 minutes on the weight floor. It was all men on the weight floor. It was a beautiful day. Everyone was presumably outside. It was also kind of late, dinner time.

I'm glad to be back at the gym and hope I don't have any more setbacks.
