Minor changes...Major results

Walking on a treadmill, set the speed to 3.7, incline to 6.0 feeling ok, heart starting to pump, yep sweatin', breathing hard, still feelin good....okay lets kick up to 7.0 & 4.0; you then begin to realize just how long a minute is, they seem like time is standing still, you start to count, just can't get the seconds right, close your eyes, try counting again, open them, four seconds have though sure it was at least 10 seconds. Try again, same result. Yikes, why am I breathing so hard? Why are my legs turning to jello? Why is my hair wet? Oh yeah, I sped up .3 and inclined by 1.0. minor changes. What am I thinking? No pain, no gain, that certainly isn't it? another few minutes I can go eat my broken cookie? Nope, not it either. I know, I'm working hard and i had to tighten my belt one more hole. Thats it! Results...Oh wow, set the treadmill to 7.0 and speed it up tomorrow! See you in the Gym...


  1. Eric, you are a great writer! I love the way you describe your hard work and your pain. I'm serious. You must have been a good writer in school. You are working soooo hard. I keep telling Riley he is working you too hard.
    By the way, I like your bike. Red is my favorite color. Keep up the work you make me want to work harder.

  2. I wish I could get results that fast! Good for you. I hope I can soon tighten my belt.

  3. So glad to hear you are seeing results!! Thanks for being such a great inspiration!!
