Yes, this was our day in City By the Sea. It also included hail.
It was a bit cool, then, for walking outside. The Blessed Dog Walker took the dogs out this morning, and Molly refused to be walked in the rain this afternoon. (Sam went along as he was told when #2 Son put him on the leash.)
I turned to the elliptical.
Friends, I like the elliptical, I really do, but one day when I was feeling particularly excited about an episode of 24 I stayed on the darn thing for 42 minutes. Now I feel that anything less would be lame and wimpy.
The trouble is, after 42 minutes, I feel broken!! I am okay from the waist up, but my legs really, really hate me. Will this pass as I continue to do these 42-minute workouts?
And how will I convince myself to keep at it after I’ve worked my way through all the available seasons of 24?
This summer I hope to do some hiking with Pure Luck. He says the elliptical will get me ready. I want to believe it. I want to believe that although I am broken now, I will be blessed later.
Feel free to encourage me.
