I have been deficient in posting at all, much less keeping up my committment to

has been doing a much better job.
A few weeks ago I thought I’d made some breakthrough – able to run for longer stretches of time (sometimes 5 whole minutes on end, ooh-la-la!) and taking on greater challenges as far as speed and incline on the treadmill. And my workouts with the trainer were going great… then I hit not just a plateau, but a slump. Starting having major fatigue at those levels of exercise, if I pushed through anyway I just cramped up. So, backed off a bit, listened to my body, and just tried to maintain status quo. Last night’s workout seemed to be getting me back on the right track; I was back to seeing noticable improvement on my previous days’ workouts. Just gotta listen to the body, and someday maybe I’ll actually be able to run a non-embarrassing amount. Have been good about consistent workouts, anyway… I have not had a week with fewer than 5 workouts since October or so. Usual workouts are 30-45 minutes, either cardio or weights. Weight sessions are two days a week, each a 30-minute session with my trainer.
