A tip about cardio!

When I thought about cardio I really only thought about running, and man tbh I’m not a huge fan of running, never felt like I was “good” at running, and just never thought my body would look “good” while running. SO I wanna tell you first off although running is amazing for you, there are a lot of other cardio workouts you can do! But here is some tips of how I learned to start running, and feel more confident in running!

1. Fast walking on treadmill or outside!! Since where I live theres snow/ice everywhere I walked on the treadmill with an incline of 7.5-8.5 and did intervals of speed 2.8-3.0-3.5+ (switched speed every 4 minutes) and started with 20 mins! Then for a week I added 4 more mins! This kept my heart rate up and made me do a slight jog!

2. The elliptical!!! If you don’t feel “confident” running at the gym or outside yet an elliptical is a great start (and what I did!) It helped me increase my endurance and gave me a great workout! I always go on the intervals setting, and started w/ 20mins on the elliptical, then each day add 5mins till I go for 60mins every time now!

3. Now time for the treadmill! After doing each step for a week when I went on the treadmills and did intervals (running/fast walking) I felt a lot more confident, my endurance felt stronger, and I felt more stronger doing cardio! I do intervals for 25 minutes (which was a comfortable starting time) and now I increase every day +3!

Hope this helps!


Suga comes into the room at the exact moment Daichi seems to have realized strapping the baby into the carrier on his chest should have been his last step, not his first. Now he has Katsumi attached to him, a backpack in one hand, Emiko holding the other, and absolutely no way to get his own shoes on.

He looks up at Suga helplessly and Suga does his very best not to laugh, because since Katsumi joined the family they’ve only taken the kids out together, but today Daichi has offered to take them both on his own so Suga can work. Which is amazing. And something Suga is a little afraid of doing himself, because Emiko can run absurdly fast on her tiny chubby legs, and Katsumi cries….pretty much always.

He appreciates this so much, but oh God, Daichi looks so cute and desperate right now, Suga can hardly contain himself.

“I did this wrong,” Daichi says.
