Double L insisted that an elliptical would be the perfect exercise machine for me - and he was right.
My sessions currently start out and finish at Level 1, but there are stretches at Level 2 & 3 throughout. I get so tempted to kick it up to 5 or more, and will eventually, but not for at least another 3 weeks or more.
There is almost no pressure on my knees while exercising, and no waking up the next day feeling like a crumpled ball of aluminum foil.
While I'm flying in mid-air I watch Netflix on my tablet. I'm in deep into The Gilmore Girls right now - those ladies are all about the snappy patter.
