So… You know you’re in terrible shape when…

I decided to take a short walk after work today. Now, as I’ve mentioned before, I live in a fairly hilly area, but that is no excuse for the pitiful shape I find myself. It’s quite possible I’m in the worst shape of my life (That includes when I was over 400lbs).

It’s only been a couple months since I was either walking or cycling several times a week; I mostly stopped because of the heat. The walk I took today should have taken no more than 8 minutes for the average person. With my short step and feet, it would probably take me an average of 10 minutes. It took me 14 minutes to walk about a half a mile.

Yes, you read that right.

But hey, I’m not a generally negative person. Every journey starts somewhere and this is the starter for me.

My stats will be updated tomorrow and my first attempt on the Total Gym will be Saturday and another walk most likely Sunday.

Lower temperatures will likely help but overall I just need to be in better physical shape.

Keep it going
