It is hard to believe that 3 months has gone by and I have found time in my day to go to the gym 76 times! Even though I’m the one going, I still shake my head in disbelief! And I seem to be getting there earlier and earlier. Back in January I thought 6:30 was early enough! Lately I’ve been out the door before 6 a.m. Who would have thunk it?
On Saturday, while we were in the middle of our first spring snow storm, I had a new personal best on the elliptical. I did a mile in less than 11 minutes! This is huge for me but it goes to show what diligence can do for you. Nine weeks ago I was thrilled to get 1.12 miles in 15 minutes. On Saturday, the distance was 1.39 miles – that is a huge improvement, and I’m not really pushing it! Well maybe just a little when I saw that the breakthrough was attainable if I did! Certainly it was easier to break through this milestone than the 12 minute mile. I had to work a lot harder for that one!
I’ve noticed that I’m the only person at my gym (at 6 am, at least) that writes down all these details everyday. Somehow it motivates me to see what I have done. It also shows me, now, how much I’ve improved over the last little while.
Do you keep track of stuff like this? How do you do it?
Have a wonderful day watching the snow melt and living your life!
