Five Minutes of Exercise

February 20, 2008

A friend suggested I do 5 minutes of exercise on my dust-ridden elliptical machine. She had just bought one and was excited to have it. I commented that I never use mine. Bought with the best of intentions, of course. And quickly abandoned.

So yesterday evening waiting for my DH to make it home I hopped on with a book in hand and reset the timer from when I used to go one hour… a lifetime ago…

5 minutes was HARD for me. I must have looked at the clock every 15 seconds or so. I felt my thighs burning and was breathing hard. Wow I am so out of shape.

But 5 minutes is 5 minutes more than I’ve done of serious exercise in a long time, and I was really happy with myself for doing it.
