JENN: Once again, apologies for the late week in review – I just got back from Puerto Rico (more on this later).
So, how’s the running thing?
MOON: Well, last week wasn’t so good. I hurt my back and then had a bit of a downer week. I spent a lot of time with the cat.
Are you back to running yet?
JENN: Not quite. My foot is really, truly ALMOST HEALED – I can put my full weight on it and then rise on my toes and everything! But it still feels a little sore occasionally so I’m waiting until the end of the week to try running.
In the meantime I’ve spent the last two weeks on the elliptical. The elliptical used to be my go-to machine, and now, for the life of me, I CANNOT UNDERSTAND WHY. It feels totally boring and ineffectual.
|Cause: too much elliptical machine.|
MOON: I can make the elliptical work for me, but I feel like my entire body gets a better work out if I run.
JENN: I’m just not as tired afterward. Also, did I mention that it’s BORING? SO boring. I can’t zone the way I can when I run. Oh well. I’ll be back to it soon!
MOON: Haha, I usually read on the elliptical, it’s the only way I can stay on it for longer than 10 minutes.
JENN: I kinda need music or else I slow down too much. My boyfriend just introduced me to J. Roddy Walston and the Business so I’ve been listening to that to keep things moving at a reasonable clip. Can’t wait to run to it!
JENN: Let’s see, what else? Oh, yeah – roundup!

Oh that damn elliptical. Worse.Machine.Ever. Thank foodness for strategically placed televisions in the garage and the company of the Wonder Mutt.
Only one or two more sessions before I try running again! 😀
I was the same way with the elliptical! I remember once upon a time being on that thing for 1 1/2 hours like it was nothing and then I tried it again and wanted to kill myself after 5 minutes.
And thanks for the shout out! Woo!
I know, right? It's like WHY AM I EVEN BOTHERING.
