Today was the first day I have exercised in ages. I got on the treadmill, thinking I'd try to go about 10-15 minutes. The first five minutes went veerrrry slowly, it seemed, while I struggled to find a comfortable speed. With TM I have a balance problem and my footing isn't great, so I needed to not feel like I was about to keel over. I thought it was going to be a strain to make it 10 minutes, but then I did, so I thought I'd try for 12. Hit that and thought I'd try for 15. I made it to 20 minutes (and about half a mile, so I wasn't going too fast).
I have to hang on the the handrails because of my balance problem, and I can kind of feel the pull across my abdomen.
I definitely feel more awake. I had almost talked myself into a nap but decided to try the treadmill instead.
I think exercising is one of those things I am not going to feel "inspired" to do and I am going to have to "just do it."
