I did my 45 min program on the elliptical and then jogged for a while (okay, a LONG while..lol) when it was done. I did much better on the program than I did monday. I took less recovery time; and only went slower than the program wanted me to at certain intervals, instead of having to slow down just because I couldn't keep up. That makes me proud. Maybe I just knew better what to expect this time...maybe I'm actually improving... either way, I'm happy about it! :) I didn't wanna completely die...just a little bit...haha and I think the reason I didnt burn as many extra calories the first day I did my own intervals with the weights was just because I wasn't dedicated to the times and intensities. Guess I'm not disciplined enough to do it on my own...fine by me since I've got a program that'll keep my in the right gear! :) And also, I think this is the FURTHEST I've ever ran!! I actually confused the elliptical! haha It stopped counting at 6.5 miles and I had to reset it...then went on for another 2 miles! Partially because I was aiming for a certain calorie burn, and partly to end on an even number of miles (or half mile)...and only a *little bit* to go longer than Allison ;) Mostly it was because I'm addicted once I start, and I feel guilty for not working out yesterday and not being as good as I should have with my eating...... anyway, here's the stats...
1140 calories (hrm total)
I downed a full bottle of water when I was done...and almost feel sick after doin it!...that's 33.8 oz....two pounds of water..LOL seems silly...but I think I probably sweated out that much...my face has salt dried on it from sweating...and looked like a cherry tomato hahaha...I always get really red faced when i work out though...i have a lot of red in my skin tone anyhow.
