Today I tried the elliptical, 'cause I feel like that's what *everybody* uses. It totally kicked my ass the first ten minutes. After I took a breather I made myself do another ten minutes, with a conscious effort to not go so hard. (It was supremely easy to go at a leisurely pace on the StairMaster. The elliptical? Seemed to default to a serious pace.) Those second ten minutes were easier, and by the time I finished my third ten minutes I felt like I could keep going for ages and consciously made the choice to stop. I didn't really wanna kill myself when I had a 30+minute walk ahead of me (to get home). I could have rationalized it with the fact that I'm not gonna be able to get back to the gym until Friday, but I decided I was better off not pushing too hard.
Also, it's hard to read on the elliptical 'cause of that bobbing motion. Am working on that.
I went to bed at like 10:30 last night and had trouble getting up this morning, so tonight's gonna be a *really* early night.
