Week 2 – Day 1 – Gym – A New Friend

Body, Exercise


The eliptical is my new friend. The treadmill was my friend the first week because it was the easiest thing for me to do in my mind. I just wanted to walk. When the trainer told me to increase my time and energy on the treadmill last week, I took the challenge and was glad I did. I had a major win and looked and felt better because of it.

I took a break from the gym on Saturday and Sunday. So, Yesterday, I was back for Week 2. Since I needed to be at my day job earlier than usual, I needed to get to the gym earlier. I was there at 5:45am. I walked in the door and as I passed the first row of elipticals, I felt their presence and was guided to go there instead of my favorite treadmill.

The eliptical was a bit challenging at first, but once I got my rhythm down, I was good to go. Since it requires more of a different type of movement, I was winded a lot quicker. I imagine it is really good for cardio since my heartrate was up quickly.

I like to take a picture of my results at the end of the workout, but the machine just counted down and shut off. No ‘workout summary’ on the display. A little disappointing. There I was poised with my iPhone camera ready and the display screen just went black.

I know I did one mile in 15 minutes. I was short on time, but definitely felt like I had completed a worthy workout.
