Day 36 - 3...2...1... PAIN

I did my cardio on my freshly fixed elliptical. WOO HOO!!

For those who don't know, I have an elliptical with an adjustable stride length.  It had been stuck on the 13" stride length which works your quads more.  But tonight... tonight, I got to use the 18" stride length.  Oh! It felt so good.  Kind of.  Except that the muscles in my legs weren't happy.  I think the conversation went something like this:

Legs: Oh.  Wait a minute.  Ow. OW. OW!!!!  What the hell?
Me: It's called the elliptical.  It's good for you.  Trust me.
Legs: Trust you my a$$.  Literally.
Me: No really.  You'll thank me for it someday.
Legs: Did your parents say that to you? Did you believe them when they said it?
Me:  Hmmmm.  You have a point.
Legs: Damn straight! Now get off this damn thing!
Me:  Nope.  See, I'm doing this challenge.
Legs:  Challenge?  What the hell kind of challenge?  And why did you involve me??
Me: First of all, do you really have to curse?  Second, the challenge requires me to exercise.  So you'll just have to suck it up.
Legs: First, hell yes I have to curse!  Wait!!! Don't turn up the resistance!  Are you trying to kill me?? And second, who's idea was it to do the challenge?
Me: Hey - if you want to blame someone, blame Lisa and Christine.  They started it!
Legs:  As soon as we can walk without feeling like Jello, we will!  You can bet on it!

And then, I went on to do about 40 minutes of cardio. My legs still hate me.  I think I'll just have to apologize in the morning when they are speaking to me again.

Wait.  Am I really talking about talking to my legs?  I need some sleep.

Miz - I was surprised that my legs were having trouble with it, but it's a good thing. I like feeling like I've actually worked out. I like that sore feeling after. If I'm not sore, I feel like it was all for naught.

Deb - I hope they get whipped into shape. Otherwise they'll just be whipped. And that won't feel good. :)

Wannabe - Thanks! :) Glad I made you laugh.

Sylvia - Really... what does that say about us?? ha ha ha Oh well!
