Fitness Program Entry #3

Tues 4/20/10
My 1st REAL workout today. Tuesday is cardio day, 40 min on the treadmill, and I think I lasted about 5/10 min on the elliptical machine.
Heather was pretty much just focusing on getting my heart rate above 130.
I consider the workout a success because I lived to tell the tale..LOL

Amusing antidote time: While on the elliptical, she wanted to check my heart rate & the darn thing would not register it. so I said, "Oh great!, Ya killed me!"
She assured me that she has not had any casualties "yet".

I do love the treadmill, I have one at home, so that was a comfortable way for me to initiate my fitness journey.
My biggest trouble with the elliptical machine was the motion. I suffer from motion sickness. I was pretty shaky when I got off of it, I sat for a few minutes and drank some water. Hopefully that will improve.

Tomorrow will be a bit of cardio but Wed is weight training day, so that should be my focus. There is a bike out there, not a spinning bike..maybe it is called a recumbent bike (?) I will have to ask Heather for sure. I would like to give that a whirl tomorrow.

Thanks for sharing my journey...
