Screw running

Instead of doing the treadmill for an hour, I opted instead for the elliptical. It's easier on my knees and somehow doesn't seem as difficult as actually running. My trainer told me that it didn't matter which machine I used, as long as I aimed for 60 minutes, so it's not like I was cheating or anything.

Maybe it's because I did 30 minutes on the elliptical twice last week, but today when I hit the 30 minute mark I was doing much better than I had imagined I would be, and I went right on through to 60 minutes without any trouble. I honestly didn't think I could do it, and I'm kind of excited to find out that I actually can.
