Oh! Oh! I got upgraded!

I was at the gym today (a minor miracle every time!) and I was able to workout without being called to the child center to pick up a crying baby(a MAJOR miracle)! In fact AJ was sweetly sleeping whenI picked up the kids.

Today was my "pre" fit test for the T.E.A.M. Fitness program. This is just a 5 min warm up followed by 30 min on the treadmill, as fast as you can go for 30 min. I wasn't exactly sure what I could do for 30 min, so I started out at 10 min miles and kept moving up every 2.5 mins until finally landing at 8:45 min miles. I was able to go 3.33 miles in 30 min, an avg of 9:00 min miles. I thought that was pretty good after basically 4 months off of working out and having not run in about 11 months! Interesting numbers off the watch:
Max HR: 197 bpm
Avg HR (including 10 min cool down): 173 bpm

We also measured my weight and body fat % today... and I am SO not posting those numbers. Suffice to say, I'm not a light as I once was.

The cool news, it turns out that I'm already fit enough to start with Boot Camp instead of Fitness. Also good news, my c-section inscision barely bothered me today!

Start date is Jan 5th 10 am, I can't wait!!
