The elliptical and I have made peace. I usually get in three workouts per week, twenty minutes each. I've been really proud of myself and I've even started noticing a very slight difference in the way my jeans fit.
Today, though, I had one of those "you've got to be kidding me" moments. I left for our toddler group around 9:40 this morning and passed a woman running in our edition. I returned from group around 12:00 to see the exact same woman still running. That's more than two hours of running! I'm guessing she's a SAHM who runs while her kids are at school, but seriously, that's a lot of running! Let's hope she's training for a marathon or something. Suddenly, my workouts didn't seem so ambitious.
