So, I made myself go to the gym today, because I didn't go the last couple days and I knew if I didn't go today I was going to have lots of problems very soon! So I finally kicked my butt in gear and went.
I got there and first thing, for a change, I just hopped on the elliptical. I wanted to aim for 30 minutes today, because last time I did 20 strait minutes, then another ten later, so I fugured what the heck, I can do that. So I hopped right onto the elliptical...
As I was getting closer to 30 minutes, I was feeling REALLY good, they were playing good music that I was having fun with and I was keeping a steady pace. And so, I challenged myself, and thought, "I could do this for my full hour, I bet..."
So I kept going past 30, and a few minutes past it I thought to myself, "I am insane. There is NO way I can do this for an hour. But I've already started, so... I have to keep going at least until 40 minutes or something."
And then I was feeling good again! And this time I stayed that way. Ity got hard near the end, and I literally started cheering myself on under my breath, saying things like, "If you can do 45 minutes like you have, you can do another fifteen easy!"
And you know what?
I DID IT!!!
So I spent 1 hour on the elliptical, which amounted to about 4.55 MILES, an average of 330-something strides/minute! Yaaaay!
I feel SO unbelievably good right now, it's crazy! I didn't think I'd be able to do that until I'd been doing this for a while... I mean, I don't want to do that EVERY day, but... I CAN do it! Yaaaay!
