ok, folks, I really need some input here. I've been faithfully getting on my treadmill about 3 times a week, 4 if I can, for 30 minutes and about 1.4 miles. My goal is increased fitness level and weight loss. The problem is that often the treadmill time uses up whatever energy I have. Darn. Exercise is supposed to energize, not drain me! What is going on here? Yes, I have fibro, but exercise is supposed to help, not hinder. My school year starts again at the end of the month, so I'll be going back to work. I am a school nurse in a very busy high school health office, which requires focus and energy from me. I am not sure if I can manage working and treadmilling too, but hate to lose whatever fitness benefits I've accrued so far. This is very frustrating. Any thoughts or suggestions? Thank you, Beth.
