1:36 mins…

We picked up the elliptical Thursday last week… Mike had it put together that day and we were on it…

At first I could go 30 seconds and my left calf and thigh were screaming in pain and I was gasping for air… you would think to remember to breathe… not me…

The PT lady said this machine was for building endurance, working the neuro area and cardio… and I agree, it does all that… except when I cloud my neuro with some pot…

With our weather being crappy, walking isn’t happening, so we get on the elliptical… Now Mike, right off the bat, he went longer than I could and I had to remind myself about the stroke, yada, yada, yada…

After one week I can do the elliptical for a minute and a half… no elevation or tension… but, the leg didn’t scream at me to quit either… still amazes me I made it through basic training…

For me, the hardest thing, other than my left leg… the heart racing or thumping and the breathing… I remember that as an issue in basic training too….

I am hoping that the device gives me relief in my shoulders… I have carried this weight of deceit of the Bagwell clan so long, it has become a fixture on my body and a painful one… every day I am correcting my posture thousands of times a day, working at breaking the habits I picked up to compensate for the left side weakness, no one ever caught… continuous medical care and not one American doctor caught it… WOW!!!

Hope to make it to 2 mins this weekend… did 1 1/2 mins three times yesterday at different times of the day… I think we made a wise investment, now the day we start hanging stuff on it, is the day I post of picture of it going bye-bye…
