Gymming Stats

I thought it is high time I reported the latest 4 weeks running statistics of my gymming efforts.

I have averaged 4.25 KMs per day on the treadmill, which translates to 29.75 KMs per week (I work out on all days of the week – in fact, I will be going on Sunday morning, as usual, though I may be the only guy at the gym at 6:30 AM, like it was today, a Saturday). I am maintaining this figure for every week for the past 4 weeks or so, sometimes closing the treadmill at 4.12 KMs and on other days closing it at a figure higher than the average.

I should say that it has been almost an effortless workout on the treadmill (of late) as I am increasingly getting used to it, rather than walking around the condominium complex due to the rains. Otherwise, I used to mix the walking around with the treadmill walking, so that there used to be some balance – definitely the airing is better when you walk around in an open space, rather than the air-conditioned environment of the gym. A 42 minute walk on the treadmill produces the 4.25 KMs of walk, with the calories reading in at 215. The best I have done so far was on 9th July when I did 5.07 KMs of walk expending 271 calories, but that is unusual.

I believe doing in excess of some 25 KMs a week is an excellent way to control the variable parameters of your body, which are generally not conducive most of the time for positive health situation. At least thrice a week, I combine this walk with some good weight lifting (not too much – some 20 minutes at the most with simple exercises), and I believe that helps. One would see a marked improvement in stamina during the day, and an enhanced ability to concentrate.

I am enjoying this increased emphasis on working out, totalling to some 70 minutes a day. I have consistently performed at this level for more than 4 weeks, and I intend this level of performance going forward. The work out could shift from the mornings to the evenings, but these figures are emerging as the norm.

I see that a few other folks are also working out regularly, but they seem to be taking off the emphasis during the weekends, I do not know why. The weekends are as important as the weekdays in keeping up the tempo, the momentum is crucial for a better week ahead.

So, please start working out folks, it does help in ensuring a positive orientation and a cooperative body.
