I opted to try out the elliptical machines at our school's gym this afternoon. Was glad I did. At the risk of sounding snooty, I always snubbed such machines, thinking that they're wimpy. Wrong. The nice thing was it really worked out my quadriceps big time, which are also my weakest leg muscles. I need to get those puppies stronger for the long downhills at Western States. Perhaps doing the ellipticals once a week or so could help.
Elliptical - 6.8 miles in 30 minutes.
Random hill setting.
Level 12 (out of ???)
