Treadmill Desk Update

Several weeks ago, all that walking on my treadmill desk put me at 6 pounds below my starting weight.  I gained 1 back, which is probably a combination of muscle building and eating more.  Even with the gain, my pants are a little loose, so I really do think muscle buildup is at least a small factor.

I’m doing 6-8 miles per day, at speeds between 1.5 and 2.0 MPH, having ramped up from 4 miles per day a few weeks ago.  Once I max out my mileage, I may add ankle weights, except some paranoid part of me wonders if that’ll make people think I’m under house arrest and wearing tracking devices.

There’s this couch to 10k program that some friends of mine (only one with an online presence, AFAIK) have participated in, and I thought it’d be cool to see if I could catch up to them while working 🙂  It’s not exactly the same thing, since they actually run the 10k, and I’m walking it, but I’m a lot more productive during my miles than they are…
