My new favorite addition to my workout routine is the "hills" setting on the treadmill. The elliptical has been hurting my feet if I stay on too long, so I've felt the need to change it up lately. However, I discovered yesterday that 10 is a VERY difficult level to begin at. But fun.
I'm starting at a 15 minute mile, and we'll see if I can get that up by the time real camping, hiking, and jogging season starts. I'd like to run a 5K in spring, if anyone would like to work with me toward that goal. if nothing else, it'll just such a great feeling to be able to make it through a hiking trip with my in-shape friends without needing to collapse mid-way through because I can't keep up.
