Workout Wednesday- My uphill battle




NSV ~This hill is steep, you cannot see the road or houses on the other side.  Prior to my surgery, I would walk a different path just to avoid this hill.  Even when I did try to walk it slowly, my knees would hurt and I would be left breathless.  I now walk longer and faster than ever before so I decided to try it again.  My first attempt surprised me because it was so much easier than I hoped.   No panting, no knee pain.  Last week, I began sprinting up the hill.  Not a casual stroll or even a fast walk, but a sprint!  Every time I make it to the top I feel like Rocky, Champion of the world!




Last week: 

I swam laps 6 days & walked a total of  17.40 miles. Walked a total of 66.9 miles so far this month.  I completed 2 strength training sessions.

Goals for the upcoming week:

I will complete at least 2 days of strength training
I will complete at least 5 days of walking
I will complete 4 days of swimming laps

  1. We have a giant hill in my neighborhood too and that thing is my arch nemesis! I tackle it as often as possible, sometimes twice during my 2 mile power walk, and I'm always out of breath at the top, but I take a moment to stop at the top (gasping for air!) and enjoy the scenery around me. There's a gorgeous view once up there, and it's totally worth the climb!
    Good for you for tackling the big hill, keep it up!
