I think I am overdoing it!

I’ve been on the treadmill twice today! I think I overdid it!
I had planned on going on for short intervals. Say 10 to 15 minutes at a time.
I managed to do two 15 minute intervals. I was going to go on again in an hour but I think I wont. I’ll pass on it I think for tonight.
I’m just too tired. And I feel a little sore and a little weak too.
No point in doing it all at once, is there?
I’m feeling a bit anxious as well. Not sure why. I just feel a little shaky and kinda nervous.
Nervous energy maybe? Who knows…

  1. Oh, Carol, you really need to start slowly. Not too long, not too often, and not too fast. This had a negative effect instead of a healthy one. The secret is doing it frequently. 15 minutes every day is good and from there you can increase up to 30 minutes. But once a day is good. Later you can do more. Definitely don’t overdo it.

  2. when I was at college and doing the physical education course which included the treamill, I was told to do it 20 minutes a day and concentrate on being able to walk faster, not necessarily for a long period of time. Also it’s good to do a five minute warm up to the speed you’re going to walk at, and then a five minute warm down, where you slow the treadmill down to half the speed you were walking. Some treadmills come with that program build-in. It keeps you from getting too sore all at once. I know you’ve proven you can walk long distances, so the idea is to get the heart rate up to a certain point where you are burning the calories. If you feel like doing an extra 20 minutes after the regular one, that’s great, but you don’t have to overdo things. Also, if your treadmill has this capability, you might increase the incline so that it is like walking up a hill. that will also help to raise your heart rate and burn calories. xxx

  3. Don’t be too hard for yourself at the beginning, I guess it needs time. πŸ™‚ Also, endorphins are cool and they may boost your mood, but personally I’ve also noticed that in some situations, a lot of very dynamic physical activity actually makes me sort of fidgety, like a bit agitated and anxious and my mind is racing like crazy. Maybe that’s the case for you, too?
