Okay, a big part of ‘Operation Short term, Hard core’ sees me on the elliptical trainer. It feels like hours a day. Hell, sometimes it IS for hours a day!
You may have figured this out, but I get bored easily. I fidget. I crane my neck around to sticky-beak at all the other gym peeps I can see. I watch other people but mostly pretend to be watching the TV while listening to my music. It’s slightly maddening.
