This month I have been to the fitness center eleven of the twelve days, each time rewarding myself with a nice hot sauna and a good sweat.
Slowly but surely I have been improving myself on the treadmill, making yet another record today. At a slope of 0.5 degrees, I ran a hefty 3.82 kilometers (2.29 miles) in 18 minutes.
Why 18 minutes?
Well, back in the good old days when I was younger and fitter, I would go for 21 minutes (one minute more than twenty just for the heck of it). Just recently getting back in shape I started at 16 minutes, and when that became too easy I moved up a 2-minute notch to 18 minutes.
Makes sense doesn't it?
Maybe some day in the not so distant future I will be back up to the 21 minutes level, but we will just have to wait and see how that goes (don't want to give myself a premature heart attack by accident for the sake of achieving stupid records).
