So much for getting out of bed to get on the elliptical this morning. I was feeling a bit achy and frankly I just wanted the extra sleep. I'm sure a lot has to do with the fast but hey, I've lost a couple pounds with a long way to go. Just have to push through it.
I did get back at it tonight and had planned on doing an hour but once I started I could feel the fatigue even at low resistance so I decided to do the best I could. Still I went through the normal routine to warm up for 10 minutes and increase the resistance as high as I could without getting over 137 bpm.
I have to say that it was a bit of a struggle but i keep pushing for 5 more minute. At first I decided I'd shoot for 30 minutes, then I talked myself into 35, then 40 before finally settling on 45 minutes. It may have been shorter than I wanted but it was still quality with about 30 minutes above 130 bpm. Gotta get that fat burning.
Tomorrow is another day and I'm not even going to attempt to get up early; don't want to overdo it. This boy needs his recovery and I'll just hit it after work.
