I work today at the gym from 8 to 1 and 6 to 9, and I wanted to work…

I work today at the gym from 8 to 1 and 6 to 9, and I wanted to work out beforehand so that I would have a reasonable amount of time to come home in between, so I got up way the hell too early this morning. (But it's good practice for next week, when I have to be up at quarter of 5 in the morning.) I decided I wasn't up to facing the elliptical thingie, mostly out of boredom, and the pool is closed until Tuesday, so I grabbed my raquetball raquet and went and hit around a ball for the first time in many, many moons. I got some good exercise out of it, and only whacked myself in the face once, and only ran full on into the wall once, so I call that a success, and something that I think I should keep doing. And it prevented me from actually banging some heads over my paycheck. :)

I sooo need a nap.

One word of advice on the elliptical thingy - it's hard as hell. And this comes from a gal who plays soccer and is used to having her arse kicked on a regular basis. :) Don't give up after the first go. I set it to manual the second time I did it (the first time I did it, I gave up after 2 minutes) and that helped immensely. Instrument of torture, that elliptical. If it's any consolation, I can go only 30 minutes MAX on an elliptical but I can play 90 minutes on a soccer pitch.

Ok, I started rambling, but wanted to let you know what to expect. :)

:) Oh, it's not a hardness thing... I just didn't feel up to going updownupdown in place this morning. :) but thank you!

Ok, well maybe you can give me words of encouragement then. :)

I totally understand the lack of wanting to do the elliptical. I face it every morning...

*chuckles* Well, I can do about 15 minutes on level one on the manual setting, so if it helps, I bet you're about 18 levels past me.
