Took longer that I anticipated to really recover, in fact even today I haven't fully got back to the same exercise intensity that I had before the Storm. My aerobics capacity is still diminished and that's is one of the more important issues in my struggle to lose weight, specially that I really want to do the half-marathon in October.
So my focus is still to walk for long periods of time at low intensity, with intervals of running hard (really short period of time, really short) to try to increase my air capacity. I missed so many days in the Gym, that I was afraid I was going to gain weight, but I am back on my goal of going 6 days a week. I am trying to walk 60 minutes every day @ 3.7 mph average(this is about 6 km), then once a week go for 120 minutes @ 3.2 mph(about 10 km). I want to incorporate before October, once or twice, to walk for 20 km, which is the half-marathon.
My last weighted-in was 268 lbs, so I am still losing weight, at a much slower pace than before, but hey is still going. I can notice the difference in the amount of calories I lose when I walk on the threadmill, weighting 50 lbs less, I guess my body doesn't struggle as much to carry his own weight.
