2) In my quest to try cardio-that-doesn't-hurt-my-foot, I've been going to the gym! Well, ok, I've gone twice this week and worked out at home twice. The gym is a bit of an adjustment. The only time I really have to workout is in the mornings or late at night (read: before the monsters get up or after they go to bed). I know myself, and I know that if I wait until evening the chances of blowing it off are much improved, so I prefer the mornings. Mornings workouts for me mean I have to be done by 6am, which means leaving the house at 4:20 to get in an hour-long workout at the gym. That's a little brutal! I'm used to getting up early, but not THAT early. I'm still going to run short runs with my girlfriends once a week, so I'm not completely out of the loop, and I'll see how my foot does with that. It's been feeling good lately.
This morning I did the Precor (elliptical) machine for 45 minutes and got in 4.6 miles (I think it's miles...it says "distance" and I assume that's miles, right?). I did the whole thing without holding on to the arm thingy's (that's the technical term for it...look it up) which I read works your core/balance and is a closer simulation of running...and since I'm a complete techno loser, I've gone twice now without headphones and had to read the captions on the tv the whole time. Need to get some headphones...
