Tuesday, my calves were actually sore from the intervals. I did 30 minutes of elliptical anyway, at level 15, which involves some muscle. This was more exhausting than usual.
I took Wednesday off, though I did walk over to visit the Adorable Tots after work, which takes maybe 20 minutes? Less? Some of it is a long slope uphill.
Thursday, I lifted weights in my current usual routine, with less weight but more reps. I think I can up at least one of the weights soon. Then I did twenty minutes of elliptical, at level 15.
I am wondering if that might be enough, for a regular schedule. I've started a new novel, and four nights a week for gym is a lot of time, plus I lose time by being exhausted and brain-empty afterwards. I can't write a whole novel solely on weekends. Well, I can, but I don't want to, because it would take a really long time. I've been trying to get a little more general exercise on the weekends, walking and such. Last weekend, I did a little lifting with my 15 pound dumbbells.
What do you think?
