Everyone sweating it out? I now have a
sad great excuse to beat the heat.
I’ve been bummed a bit lately as I am nursing a stress fracture on my left foot. Complements of wearing my flip flops too long doing city waking. Epic, total fail on my part.
I’ve had a similar injury on my right foot but that was after doing 26.2 hilly miles in 3:40. My left foot is a total wimp.
This means running is nonnegotiable and cycling is slow and painful. “Team weights and elliptical” for a few days while I rest this out. Personally, I hate the elliptical because many people abuse it.
The profile of some ellipticallians includes reading magazines, leisurely exerting themselves to the point it looks like they are going to swing themselves right off the machine.
If you’re going to rock out on the elliptical give yourself a hefty challenge and remember that the elliptical is an exercise that is suppose to mimic cross-country skiing. It should be difficult enough to where you aren’t solely focused on flipping tv channels between Jersey Shore and Real Housewives.
Here’s a good example of an elliptical workout we can trust. Thank you Pinterest.
Let’s hear your honest thoughts on the elliptical. Fan or snub?
