I learned it on Spark People!

I used to choose "Weight Loss" on the treadmill at the gym, thinking I was being especially virtuous. Turns out "Weight Loss" is intended for long workouts at low intensity---just the opposite of what I thought I was getting! If you want a good challenging workout, choose "Cardio," which gives you incline along with your speed. Now I know!
In any case, I'm not complaining. I thought I'd be at jury duty all day today, but it was postponed again. Now I may have to come in on Friday, but at least I'm off the hook for tomorrow.
Woo hoo! As a little "celebration" for not having to go in today and because I wasn't sure if I would be called for tomorrow, I went to aerobics class and then went straight to the treadmill and ran as hard as I could (not all that hard, mind you, but still!) for 15 minutes. Yowser! My Spark Peeps were my inspiration so THANK YOU!!!
