Gym Day Two

Have I mentioned how much better I feel after being back in the gym just two days?!  Yesterday I was trying to find an excuse not to go and today I was really looking forward to it.  Even the walk over to the gym was nice.  It was just starting to sprinkle and it really cooled things off. 

Today was a focus on cardio.   I was on the treadmill for 35 minutes.  I jogged half of it (GO ME) and walked the rest.  It was a brisk walk but after not jogging in at least a month it was nice to know that I still could.  Still working up to being able to jog the whole time but that I going to take some practice and more gym time.  I was very pleased with what I had done and am looking forward to doing better then next time around.


For all my fellow runners, this isn't a bad start right?!  Granted the jog was only at 5mph and the walk was at 3.5mph.  I wasn't going for the gold I just wanted to burn some calories.  WHICH by the way brings me to my next subject.  Why is it that it was on the eliptical for 30 minutes yesterday and burned close to 400 calories and only sweat a little bit, while today I was on the treadmill for 35 minutes, burned 300 calories and sweat my arse off?!  I am confused I guess.  Maybe this difference in the machines?  Difference in the work out?  

All I do know is that I really like riding my bike over being in the gym!  That is a FOR SURE.
