Elliptical, Then and Now

Because Marathon Advisor John was extremely busy at work over the weekend, all of Team Point Two got the blanket assignment today to do 60 minutes of cross training. We have since gotten this week's schedules (at least I have!)

I have to admit... I dreaded this. The bike hurts, we know that. The last time I used the elliptical, (in April, when Isaac was less than 2 months old) I thought I'd DIE. It hurt. Badly. I could only do about 10 minutes at a time. I decided to try it tonight. No matter how badly it would hurt, my "bicycle seat region" would be spared!

Get this: it was a piece of cake! 60 minutes, no problem. Yay me! No, yay Team Point Two training! I really, really have to thank John. I feel like he has brought me back to life! 47 days until Rocket City...

That gives me hope for trying things I had previously given up on. Strong work!

I think one of the reasons I don't seem to burn out from tri training is because of the variety. Good for you on the elliptical!
