I started the morning with 30 minutes on the treadmill. Both of the ellipticals at the gym were taken (I exercise at the office.) I was running late, so I had to cut the treadmill workout short. The exciting part was that my base speed is much higher than the last time I seriously used the treadmill (I tried it out a few weeks ago and sort of did the first day of Couch to 5K, but I wasn't taking it that seriously.) The last time, which I believe was in August, 3.5 miles per hour was really fast for me. Today, I was cooling down at 3.5 miles per hour!
This is a big deal, because one of the things I want to accomplish in this weight loss process is for my everyday walking speed to increase. I've always walked really slowly. In law school, sometimes I would purposely take a circuitous route to avoid running into people on the way - I didn't want to go through an awkward scenario in which a classmates sees me, slows down and walks with me for a while to chat, then realizes that I'm not getting any faster and they're about to be late for class, and eventually says, "Oh, well . . . umm, I guess I better run. Talk to you later!" and then walks at a normal speed to get to class on time.
Also, I went back to yoga today! I enjoyed that strenuous (for me) workshop on Saturday. Tonight, the same instructor taught "Basic Yoga," which is the easiest class, so I took it. It was good. My calves are extraordinarily inflexible. :-/
