I haven’t run a mile since high school. Although I was lean and muscular at the time, I still remember feeling like I was going to lose a lung.
Today, in addition to swimming and weight-lifting, I took advantage of the indoor track at the Y. I settled into a steady pace, and before I knew it, I had run a mile. I felt fine. I guess my cardiovascular system is stronger now than when I was in high school, even if I sag more now. 🙂
I’m a bit sore now, but I’m pleased with myself. I’m going to the Y again tomorrow, but I’m not sure if I’m going to run. I’ll see how my legs feel in the morning.
I have an appointment on Thursday morning with a “wellness coach” at the Y. I basically just asked how to use the computer-fitness-tracking-thing (I can’t remember what it’s called), and had to schedule an appointment.
I’m really only doing strength training for my upper body, arms, and core. I think my legs are doing just fine from a few years of riding a bike.
