Wild Card Days

Still no mileage post on Leslie Sansone’s blog. So yesterday and today were “wild card” days. I was planning to do 4 miles yesterday (3 with the DVD and 1 on the elliptical), but I wimped out and just did 2 with the DVD. Still, a little movement is better than no movement. Then today, I was so tempted to just skip it. But around 1:45 PM I sucked it up and did a mile on the elliptical.

I’ve been trying to see how long I can go before I need a break. Lately, I’ve been taking a break ever 200 revolutions. But today I just went. My first break was at 600 revolutions (just shy of .4 mile. I could have probably gone longer, but I didn’t. Then I did another 400 revolutions and took my second break. Then I did 300 and took my third and final break. Finished the last 300 and could have gone for a while longer, but thought it was best to stop.

I don’t normally make new year’s resolutions, but I do have goal for the end of 2012. That is to be able to go for 1 full mile with no breaks, and to be able to do 2 miles in one session on the elliptical. I could have probably gone 2 miles today, but that would have been pushing it by the end.

I think by doing the Walk Away The Pounds dvd it’s helped my endurance get better. So from now on, I’ll plan a weekly mileage goal and try to meet it. I seem to be keeping up with exercise with the 21 day challenge, so if I make myself a schedule, I’ll be sure to stick to it.

Not sure what I’ll do tomorrow if the mileage still isn’t posted, but I’ll do something. Maybe 3 miles, or 4. We’ll see.
