I have a favorite elliptical at the gym. It's the oldest model, but has the perfect amount of resistance. I burn a lot of calories, but am still able to walk the next day. Unfortunately, a few months ago, the gym bought a new machine and replaced one of my favorites with it. Now, there is only one.
A man at my gym also loves this elliptical. He usually goes around the same time I do. He's a maniac, who uses pedals from an hour straight! When he gets there first (which happens more often than not), I'm forced to use a newer, more painful machine.
This weekend, we were graced with Daylight Savings (there's nothing like losing an hour of precious sleep). However, there was a silver lining. My mom woke me up at 8. Well, my clock said 8, but it was actually 9:07. When I arrived at the gym, it was almost empty. Best of all, it seemed that the manic man had slept in.
