Success! Another goal down – I lasted 5 solid minutes on the rowing machine and was able to walk in a straight line afterwards. But I looked far wilder, and red-er, than the lovely model above. Don’t feign surprise, it’s really not necessary, haha.
That is how I spent my Friday night after work… At the gym. I have changed. Nay, I am changing.
Getting off the rowing machine to get the wipe-down cleaner, I felt like I was walking on jelly. But I couldn’t help but feel good. Even the jelly legs felt great.
For a long time, I thought I’d never get there. Five minutes is a long time when you start crying out for water 30 seconds in. 5 minutes. That’s 10 times as long as I could do a month ago. 1000%.
If this was a pay rise I’d be able to get nicer gym gear.
Now that I’ve got to 5 minutes, I’ve got to keep it up. Get faster, go longer, increase the resistance. But all in good time.
While at the gym I set the wheels in motion for another goal, too - personal training session booked in for Monday the 11th June. Yes, it’s a little over a week away but with my schedule and the limited times for the free sessions available it’s a miracle anything was booked at all!
