Today I began my workout with 20 minutes of Pilates, and followed that with 75 minutes on the elliptical. Like yesterday, I ran the stairs at intervals during my time on the elliptical for a total stair time of 15 minutes. After that hard hour and a half of keeping my heart rate up and my legs pushing their limit, I was feeling a little faint and wobbly. Of course, I figured, as tough as I am, I could still follow that up with a run on the treadmill. Ahem. I only lasted 15 minutes at a slow jog before I knew I had to take a break. Even my arms were starting to feel like Jell-O. I fixed myself something to eat and now I plan to take a shower and hopefully give my body a little recovery time. Maybe that will include getting more than 5 hours of sleep tonight. One can always hope.
