this is what i wrote in my 3FC journal today, sorry if you read it twice. this is what her treadmill story inspired me to do:
ok, my swimming is a damn good workout. but aside from that, i think i may be a wuss when it comes to on-land workouts. sometimes a good video can get me going (kickboxing is one) and work up a sweat, but when i go to the "gym", i never feel like i did a good job.
today, i rocked the house.
first, 30 min elliptical. at a pretty fast pace, i was dripping sweat.
5 min cool down on it.
then i did a MILE on the treadmill with INTERVALS!! this is a big deal to me. i actually RAN. thumping all 209 pounds down on that machine, too. running/walking, my mile took 17 min. so now i have a goal to work at, trying to get it faster.
then i walked for 10 more minutes to cool down.
THEN i did 2 sets of chest press machine and 2 sets on a machine where you pull down and it works your back.
whew. i rule.
