So as some of you know my Elliptical broke on me about 2.5 weeks ago. I've missed using the Elliptical since then, in fact I've even gone to the gym to use the Elliptical a couple times. The part being ordered was 41.00. It was on back order from the vendor... which means that it might take forever to get the part, since they say 2 weeks from them to me and adding the vendor into the bunch was adding even more time. =( So I was fearful that I would not have my elliptical fixed by the time it got cold out and I could no longer ride the bike without turning into a Popsicle.
Well today... I got sick of waiting. I e-mailed the company to ask how long it was going to take. I got a generic e-mail back stating what I already knew. So I went over to craigslist and looked up Elliptical for sale in my area. There was one that was in the next city over from mine listed for 60.00. The picture of it looked like it was a nicer one than mine. So I called up the lady and said that I would be interested. She is like 'how much did I have it listed for?' I was like '60.00', and she said 'Well, I will take 50.00 for it'... I had to contain my excitement...lol Because I would have paid the full 60.00 for it... So I went over and bought it and brought it home, it is a compact one that is usually between 200-300 online so it was easy to carry into the house. It has a weighted wheel that you can adjust the pressure (think that is the right term for it) of the wheel. It doesn't have any fancy computer or anything, it is just a basic Elliptical. It works amazingly well, and I love it!!!! (looks like it was barely used too) I still plan on fixing my old Elliptical, that way I will have two in case something happens to one of them.
I'm so so so so excited to get a full work out done on it! I've missed my elliptical so much, and I'm just so happy that I have a new one.
