The Down Side of Getting Healthier

Yes, you heard me… there is a down side to being more fit and healthier.  The up side is getting healtier… feeling better… not hurting…

The down side… in order to get my heart rate into the target zone now I need to push harder and harder.  I need to up the resisitance on the bike.  I need to walk faster even with the same grade.  I can get it there, but it takes a lot more work than it did before.

My arm is achey… that is a definate downer, but that is always going to happen… there isn’t any way around it.

Today I did the treadmill at the gym.  Max speed was 4 mph, max incline was 14… I managed to get my heart rate up, but it took half the workout to get there.
