I have been going to the gym on Wednesdays so hopefully I can try some of these ideas out tomorrow.
I also emailed Janae to see her opinion or what she does to get amazing miles done on the elliptical.
"HEY SARAH!! Thanks for your email and I completely understand why you got SO bored on the elliptical. I am so so sorry bout your stress fracture and feel your pain! The ellipticals at my gym all have tv's with a million channels on them and so it makes it really fun to catch up on tv. I also have an iPad and get really into the books I am reading and forget I am even working out. I also love going with my sis or a friend because we just end up talking the whole time. New playlists also help and incorporating intervals during the chorus of the songs make time fly by. Hope this helps. Have an amazing day and HEAL soon so that you can get back out there running!"
Sadly our ellipticals do not have TV's so I watch what ever the DUDES have on at the time. I also do not have an ipad. I do have an iphone so I might try to read something on that small screen. I do have Hey Hey there with me and we laughed and pushed eachother the whole time.
Only a few more weeks then I can SLOWLY start back into running again!!
