and of course it remains to be seen how long i can keep this up for. apparently the two week mark is an 'at risk' time with respect to people giving up. the trainer said i should talk to him at the four week mark to check how i'm going - so i figure that that is an 'at risk' time, too. maybe the key is to up the program to make sure you are constantly pushing yourself to keep the interest / value up. get a new program at eight weeks. seems hard for me to comprehend wanting to stop, now. i don't think i'm addicted (wow you should see some people work that elliptical trainer lol pushing through fatigue is not something that i'm actually very able to do). but... there is something addictive about it, to be sure. i'm hoping... this isn't a 'borderline cult' thing to be doing. right now... it really does seem to be some kind of answer to everything. other people struggle to do cardio because they find it 'boring'. i'm the kinda person who can waste one hour sitting on my bed doing and thinking... nothing at all. something hypnotic about it where i can't snap out of it. doesn't seem so hard to zone out while cycling. doesn't seem boring to me, at all. can hear the people running thump, thump, thump, and kinda like trying to pound the peddles in time. but, yeah, i guess i wouldn't be surprised if this is some kind of cult thing that i will snap out of at some point. i really hope not. but really... if it was the cult thing then... there are surly worse cults to get into and really... it is a healthy one, at least.
