Buns a Burnin'!
Thursday, January 07, 2010
Just goes to show that even though you may be good at one type of exercise, you can still find things to challenge you!
If there was an athletic event for the elliptical machine, I think I might be a medal contender. This afternoon, I'm working from home and thought I'd take 30 minutes to do some toning exercises during my lunch.
I got out my 'Gliding' DVD. If you haven't heard of gliding, it's these frisbie looking discs that slide on your carpet. I bought them because it simulates the motion of in line skating that I thought I could use to tone up indoors when 'blading outdoors isn't really practical. I like lower impact exercises like the elliptical and these gliding discs because my knees won't complain. Old age, I think my knee has an expired warranty!
Anyway, the Gliding program totally kicked my butt! I originally intended to do 30 minutes, but after 15, my legs and buns were a burnin'!
Hope this doesn't happen at my skiing lesson...!
