So I’ve been back at GT for two months now and I park the equivilant of a few blocks from my building. It’s about a 10 minute walk. The walking has made me realize something….I am out of shape. I do not move enough. My walk is made more difficult by two things that I do. I sometimes take the longer way from my parking deck to my building, and I now carry a heavy backpack with stuff in it, to make the walk harder.
The weighted backpack has done a lot for increasing my aerobic capicity. I have been working out as well, but not as much as I want to. I’ve been working on getting the cardio up before hitting the gym in high gear. Next week will probably be the 1st week of increasing my working.
I’m still toying around with the idea of a weighted workout to get more out of it, but I need to do some research and find out what is the best way to have a weighted workout. I’m sure there are some products out there, I just need to find the,. This is going to be an interesting journey back to being fit. It’s a painful journey, but one that my body will thank me for since it will live longer.
