P.S. We have finally moved so sorry for the delayed posts, but hey whatcha gonna do? It's a good thing I write down all my workouts.
This day was the first time I had ever used the row machine. Big Daddy does the row machine 3 days a week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday). He started doing it because he had severely sprained his ankle a couple weeks back during rugby practice. Its low impact but such an awesome heart pumping workout. Great for him since he can't run. Especially great for me because, of course I HATE running.
He set me to complete 2000m. He boasted how he sets his on the highest setting. Well whatev dude, this is my first time. ;-) He set me between 2 and 3 and I was off! Rowing away. It was kinda weird at first, but got into a groove really quickly. I kept picturing myself on the lake rowing away to my heart's content. This was cool...and almost, dare I say...easy peasy? Then OMG my legs started burning. Like not unbearably but you know what I mean. And the sweat started really flowing. I looked up at the timer thingy and I had only been rowing maybe 4 minutes! Whoa baby!
All in all I loved it and I am hooked!!!
I think I did good for my first time. I plan on rowing at least twice a week...hopefully. The little dudes will be back from my MILs so we'll see how I can fit it in.
