When I workout, I need something to distract me. TV used to work well, but it just doesn't hold my interest any more.
I really enjoy reading, but if it's a new book, I can't stand chopping it up in 15 minute increments. I LOVE reading books in big chunks, breaking them up makes me crazy. Now with a book I have already read, I can break it up no problem and it works fine. But I'm behind in my reading so I don't have time to re-read something right now.
Talking on the phone is nice, but finding someone available to chat at the same time is a challenge, and heavy breathing while talking isn't very nice.
So today I Tweeted while working out. The time passed beautifully, it was guilt free tweeting and I did the best workout so far this year!
What I did today:
Elliptical Trainer: 30 min @ level 15
