Does anyone else have an issue with cardio? I've never been able to do cardio for more than 10-15 minutes at a time, whether it be on the bike, treadmill, elliptical.. I just couldn't do it. Strength training has always been the easy part for me. Tonight for the first time, I did 35 minutes on the treadmill. I was messing around on my phone for the first 5 minutes. They passed so quickly. I put my phone down and the next 2 minutes seemed like forever! So I started watching my feet. 3 minutes passed. I looked at the time again. At this point I'm thinking "can I make 15?" I pick up my phone again.. Nothing new, no status updates, no texts.. Crickets! Ugh! I'm now at the 12 minute mark. PAUSE! I jump off real quick, grab a magazine and hop back on. Begin flipping thru.. Oh look, 35 minutes!! My conclusion: don't watch the clock!! I texted a pic of my time to my trainer, his response: tomorrow go for 40!
