25 minutes on the treadmill this morning. 3.0 m.p.h. at a 4% incline – – it was a comfortable distance. I walked a total of 3/4 mile and burned 125 calories. At least, that is according to the digital readout on the display. Not quite sure why I didn’t go for the full 30 mins instead of 25 – – I swear I’ll do a full 30 mins. tomorrow. The burn in my calves just didn’t want to do the full 30 today.
I’m wondering if it’s better to keep track of the amount of time? Or the distance? Would it be easier if my goal were 1 mile per day – – no matter how long it takes? Or 30 minutes a day – – no matter how far I walk?
So, I walk. As long as I have something interesting to watch on TV – the boredom factor isn’t much of an issue. I usually watch FoxNews — because the switching from story to story keeps my attention deficit disorder in check.
