Run Distance: 3 miles, Run Time: 30 minutes, Eliptical Distance: 2 miles, Eliptical Time : 20 minutes, 150 crunches
Just want to give a quick Thank YOU to all of you who have been supporting me lately. I appreciate it!!
Anyways...yesterday I aimed for 6 miles and ended up chopping that in half and adding the eliptical. I was doing well in the beginning but I have a lame excuse this time as to why I didn't complete. The gym was warm and I was sweating up a storm. Actually it involves a little more than that...let me explain. Living up here in the North Land has torn my skin up. This weekend I was outside in 11 degree temps that really felt like the negatives because of a slicing wind. I wasn't just out there a few minutes either, it was almost the whole day. So...my legs are really really chapped and sweat makes them sting like you are pouring salt into an open wound. I made it to 3 miles before the sweat dripping in my eyes and stinging my legs was enough. I hopped off, wiped off, and got on the eliptical. For some reason the eliptical doesn't make me sweat near as much as running so I was a little better off there.
I am starting to lean towards completing that goal of running the Twin Cities Marathon this fall. I realized that my class load won't be horribly bad during the training months and I think I will miss it otherwise. I still have a few months to decide though.
