Yay me--I ran a mile tonight! Fine, TECHNICALLY I ran .50 miles @ 5.0 mph, then walked .15 miles for 3.5 mph, then .25 miles between 5.0 and 6.0 mph, then another .15 walk, reapeat with .25. It's still a start. Now I just need the correct way to start Bridging the gap. You know, running makes you sweat a LOT. So does the stairmaster thingy that I've yet to brave. But I've seen what people look like getting off of it (and what drips down the side of the machine...yummy!)
Generally I'm an elliptical person, though because of this oddity:
Even though I know I'm not supposed to totally trust the calories/minute burned, why am I even bothering trying to run if it burns like 9 cals/min (and I come off looking like I'm about to explode) and the elliptical averages like 9-14 cal/min for me and I barely break a sweat and could go a while on it?
