I regret to report that I did not go out for a run on Monday or Tuesday (*hangs head in shame*). But I did eventually go to the gym today and even though I only ran for about a mile and a half or so and that took 15 MINUTES, at least I did it. And I did some weights too. It's a start.
I noticed while I was there that the gym has acquired those Power Plate machines that look sort of like George Foreman grills you can stand on. The blurb for them claims you can get the same benefit as a one hour workout in only 15 minutes. Really? Is that true? Because it seems to me that it is either (a)not true, or (b) an indication that the things will put you through 15 minutes of abject torture to get that benefit. I am not even sure what you do on them - they don't look like they go up or down or sideways. Do you just stand on them and jiggle? (hee! I typed "juggle" there by accident) Anyone with any experience of these mysterious articles, please let me know in the comments, otherwise my sheer nosiness may force me into taking a class and frankly that could be messy.
