I didn't weigh again. I just used my weight record from earlier today.
I never post more than once a day. Sometimes I don't even post once a day. But I have something special to share with you and I couldn't wait. Plus the next three days are going to be full of a work conference.
I left work early today to get my final preps for the trip. I took advantage to get in a good workout before the plane tomorrow. I decided to push my elliptical time from 30 to 45 minutes. I also set it on the "weight loss" program rather than the "cross trainer" I've been using for the past few times.
I noticed on Sunday that I was hitting 2 miles in my 30 minutes. I never really kept track of my distance, I'm more interested in working up a sweat and keeping myself from falling off the machine. Well, I was noticing that I was about to hit a mile and clicked over to see how fast I had done it. I wasn't expecting very fast (for me) since I was pacing myself for the 45 minutes and the change in the intensity of the levels. I did it in less than 15 minutes. And then, mile 2...in 28 minutes. Well, I started thinking.
I have 45 minutes set on the timer. I've been killing a mile in 15 minutes. Hmm. A 5K is 3.2 miles. Hmm. I could do a 5K today. Why not?
So my friends, guess what I did as a spur of the moment? I did a 5K this afternoon. In 47.7 minutes. I don't know if it counts when you're on exercise equipment, but I did it nonetheless.
