2000 MILES!!!!!! WOW!!!!!!! That is outstanding and incredible.. Neily Your feet must be tough as nails!I am so Proud of how well you have done! I hope my trainer can help me get back into some kind of shape as far as muscle tone.. I don't want to be wonder woman and lift a school bus load of people, but I do relish being able to lift my coffee cup without my arm giving way and being able to walk efficiently to stay mobile and have some fun sight seeing! Horray and keep up the good work!By the way I have heard the same thing you mentioned that the hour of real good work out is really sufficient ..because you need to raise your heart rate to a certain level for about a 20minute or so sustained work out in order to get your required cardio work out and really get the benefits to the heart and other muscles...! Maybe there is something to it! My trainer says a warm up and sustained twenty minutes and a warm down is what my goal should be at least 3 to 4 times a week!
I used to watch Eco Challenge when it was on Discovery. In that they always said that there are several types of muscle fibers. In the leg there are fibers that are specialized for short work and there are fibers that are activated through the course of a long exercise. These long working muscle fibers can work for hours without tiring, they use energy really efficiently.Your must have a good set of these long working fibers by now, neilep.
I've always had good legs
