I did it again this morning. I didn't make it all the way to the top. It was just me and my dog, and I had to get home to get lunches ready and make sure the boys had breakfast and got dressed. But, I climbed UP for 22 minutes and down for 17, stopping and resting as needed. (And, boy did I need it!)
Maybe this is my thing. I'd like to be able to climb without stopping and make it all the way to the top in 22 minutes by the end of the summer.
DISCLAIMER: I expect to lose this weight over the next 6 months to 5 years. I'm not going to feel like a failure if it takes an entire month to lose 1 pound. I'm going to feel like a success when that happens! I may offer advice that I'm currently not taking myself. Feel free to call me on that!
