Tonight I hit the elliptical trainer for the first time in many, many months. I was disturbed to discover that I am in spectacularly bad shape. I almost reached my target heart rate just by punching in my weight and exercise time on the keypad.
I did manage to do 60 minutes, though (albeit at an embarassingly slow pace), because of wonderful, wonderful cable tv. I do not have cable. The exercise room in my apartment building does. The Daily Show and The Colbert Report are on back-to-back at a time when I am almost always home. I will soon be able to run marathons.
