I have a nice surprise ready for tomorrow if only I can figure out how to get it on the page!!

Who doesn’t like to have a chance to see how smart they are?  I love quizzes that I can pass, don’t you?  (I mean don’t you love quizzes that you can pass, not don’t you love quizzes that I can pass!!  (But if I can’t pass through the design thicket to get my surprise out to the other side of this composing page, I won’t feel too smart).

But for now I have to take my squeaky knees to bed.  I started a new walking program today so I could compare notes with a friend who started with the same trainer.  Oh, but I was such a smarty pants:

When the trainer said to set the incline at 2% and walk 2.5 miles per hour, I decided to set it at 4% and go 4.2 mph.  NO problem.  I just completely ignored what an experienced trainer thought might be a good starting place for some one of my age.  After all, I am much more fit than my mom was at my age.

Ah, but the family knees!  I do have the family knees.  And now — at that incline and at that speed, I am looking for an ice pak.  Do you think applying chocolate internally would have the same effect?

Listen to your trainer for the first week of a new program before you tweak it!

  1. Hi Linda, it’s true we all like to take tests we can pass and all to often we all fail that “lets Ease into this” test. We have that ego that says well this is what I used to do so I can do this…..lol RIGHT!!!

    • Right, Christian! And if I can ever figure out how to get the Poll on this page, I’ll dedicate it to You!!

      BTW I’ve never know anybody who didn’t want to go back — just for a day — to 1st grade with an adult brain =)!

  2. Linda,
    Isn’t it human nature (or maybe just for stubborn people like us) to NOT listen to our trainers? I would have done exactly what you did—and then suffered the consequences:)

  3. We should work out together Darlene; maybe one of us would be wiee enough to know when to put the brakes on!
