Well kinda had a interesting morning today. Went to the physio...fiona was running a lil late....so i walked in...she started to ask me where my weight loss is at (one of the benefits of my physio being the employee of my gym lol) i told her its kinda at the same point...she then gave me a couple of exercises i need to do at home each day with resistance bands. Then fiona turned up and we went thru some exercises for me to do whilst at they gym. Which are exercises with bosu ball. Then she asked do we have any questions...so i asked "how much exercise with my feet should i be doing" both me and fiona wanted to know this as we have been wondering if i am doing too much of late...anyway so she goes...your PT sessions are obviously fine...the classes your doing are fine but i want you to cut the cardio back :( no more 60 minutes of cardio she wants me instead to do only 15 minutes and with high intensity...she wants me to change things to 5 minutes running and 1 minute walking for 18 minutes. More so then about my feet but she feels im not seeing the losses i should be seeing for the amount of exercises (cant deny that)...but i feel a bit weird about it all...for one thing .... as is said everywhere....its calories in vs calories out...so i suspect i wont be burning as many calories. She did tho suggest to fiona things like pushups, burpees and even commando crawl in boxing....i agree i prolly should be doing a higher intensity....ive been running at a speed of 5 on the treadmill it gets my heart rate up at around 150-160 which is good for my fitness levels etc...but i know i can run much fast then that...im sure i can run at a speed of at least 7 if not highter....but i had been keeping it at 5 to not go too hard on my feet. So well we will see what happens...i will try doing the shorter cardio sessions and higher intensity...see what happens!
