first elliptical workout ever

Friday, January 07, 2011

So my boss asked if another co-worker and myself wanted to start using our office gym after work. i said yes. holly said yes, but she's bailing. carmin doesnt know yet. so anywho, we were supposed to start yesterday but carmin couldnt find her sneakers and had to cancle. i decided that since i had everything with me, i would go down and do some work. there were 2 girls getting ready and one woman already on a treadmill so i decided that i would take the elliptical next to her so that the other two girls could have the 2 machines that were together (cause i'm sweet like that).

oh man that thing kicked my butt!!! i've never used an elliptical before so i didnt think it was going to be THAT hard. i mean i can walk on a treadmill for like 20 minutes before i'm really winded. i didnt set it to anything, just did quick start and started going. i seemed to keep it at a speed of 3.5-4 (mph?) and by 3 minutes i'm thinking are you f'n kidding me?! carmin wants to do this for an hour??? so then i'm thinking, ok, just 30 minutes i can do this. and then its like 4 minutes in and i'm getting wobbly. so ok, i'll do 15 minutes. at 8 minutes i couldnt take it anymore. i made it to 8.5 minutes and when i stepped off my legs almost gave out on me. they were just rubber!!

so now i have a new goal... to make it to 15 minutes on that stupid machine.
