      I have been going to the gym,doing some weights, stretching and doing cardio 5 days a week. everytime I had tried to go from power walking to jogging my shins was real achey and I feared shin splits so I stopped when I felt the achiness and just walked, I have been doing just a little exercise for my shins.

(I haven't been able to bring myself to jog/run for a week or 2 now)


Tonight I had a breakthru!! I slowed it all down!!!


I had Worked with multiple weights for 30 min or so, arms, legs,back etc,  used a huge ball where I did crunches for my abs. even did the rowing machine and a few extra machines i never done yet and even a 10 lb weight ball over my head and back and did circles with it for a few minutes.

then I went upstairs of the gym and got on the treadmill, I intended to do just 15 mins as I was kinda tired from working a extra 8 hr shift.


Warmup 5 mins @ 3.0 , walked another 5 mins @ 3.0 ,(this is where I got nervous) jogged 45 secs @ 4.0 , (yay! not so bad, I can keep going) walked 5 mins @ 3.0 jogged 45 secs @ 4.0,(feeling a lil achey pull on my shins) walked 5 mins @ 3.0 jogged 1 min @ 4.0, (just pushing thru it) walked 5 mins jogged 11/2 mins, 5 minute cool down for total of about 40 minutes

YAY!  I accomplished a freaking goal!! Then I got on the Elliptical and did 15 minutes!! I was on a roll...then went back downstairs and did a few more weights cause I felt I didn't do enough.

I am still very very excited to be going into the Army... it still doesn't seem real to me at times. I find myself on the Army websites all the time. I was looking at the Asvab sample tests.....well um.. on the trial test I aced the comprehension part missing only one.. but the math thats a whole nother subject........
