Yeah...but can your girly XX chromosomes do this:|
specifically: 53 minutes (go look at prettypammie's LiveJournal to see why I didn't complete the 10 minute cool-down that the machine proposed), 434 calories, 3.88 miles running on the treadmill...I used my cool Polar telemetry strap gizmoid to keep myself at the 150 HR target, but in the last couple minutes, I felt good (except for this chafing I was feeling), so I sprinted at nearly double the pace I had been running...so my overall pace was a 13:49 minute mile. Not too shabby, but I'll get better.
Gonna stick to the X-Trainer the rest of the week: (a) haven't bought running shoes yet, (b) the chafing, the HORRIBLE chafing
Current Mood: miserable
Current Music: my own allergy-riddled snuffling
Gold Bond Medicated Powder is your friend. Trust me on this.
Due yourself a huge favor a pick up a tube of Body Glide.
Trust me. I know guys that bike and run that swear by this stuff.

thanks for the tip!
I put it on my Amazon.com wish-list...why? BECAUSE...I...CAN... ;)
Um - I swam 19 laps in a 25 meter pool; 33 laps is a mile, so I swam a bit more than half a mile. No, the pool doesn't have fancy little machines that track your speed and heart rate and calories burned; _real_ wo(men) don't need that stuff!
