I'm a 36 year old librarian who loves to run, read, do yoga and hang out with my friends and family. I ran the 2008 & 2009 Boston Marathon for Team Eye & Ear to support the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary. Go Team Eye & Ear!

TGIF

Last night I spent 30 minutes on what seemed to be a bastardized version of an elliptical machine. It was slim pickings for machines last night and I had to take what I could get. This thing looked like one of those old sketches that people might have drawn before there were airplanes (minus the crude wings attached to it.) Anyway, I tried to find it's name, but it just said "Cybex" across the front. I just did a Google search, and it turns out I was on the Total Body Arc trainer. It also turns out that I was wrong in thinking that I was on an elliptical machine, because there's an article explaining why the Body Arc "gait simulator" (you learn something new everyday) is FAR superior to the elliptical machine. Well, maybe I have a lot to learn about gait simulators, but I felt ridiculous on this contraption...
Tomorrow is 16 miles... yikes!

This thing doesn't look all that ridiculous. How far do you have to run tonight? Is it just a light warm-up for tomorrow. By the way, I still think that picture from yesterday's post looks like Manny.
