That Went Fast!

Now, my results from my first night!
I think I will save my blogging for before and after my workout, not during because I was definitely slacking at the beginning while trying to multi-task, so my distance is a little weak. However, once I posted that entry, I put the phone down and stepped up my game. I was around a 67-70 speed, which I think is okay for me to go hard right now because I am not new to the elliptical, I'm just new to tracking my weight loss achievements and goals. A speed like that for beginners might give them sore calves in the morning. To prevent this (for me personally), I was drinking lots of water while I was on the machine and if I seem to get uncomfortable stepping forward, I almost always end up stepping backward on it. While doing this I also like to let go of the handles (which can be dangerous, so if you do this PLEASE be careful!!) and try to work on keeping my balance!
Hmm... blogging is a pretty nice cool down... :) Off to finish my giant cup of water! Remember to always rehydrate!
