I am pathetic!

I feel pathetic.  I got an eliptical on Jan 1, used it for the first time today, and after 10 minutes thought I was going to die!  My heart rate was just over 140, I was dripping with sweat, my left knee, back, and feet were killing me.  I originally wanted to work out for an hour, once I got started I decided to shoot for 30 minutes, I ended up stopping once I hit 1 mile (10 minutes).  I guess I can always add another mile later on today.  It can only get easier, right?  I just hate myself for getting so out of shape that I can't do 10 flippin minutes of exercise!

    Don't feel that way your just starting it's going to be hard just start slow(3 to 5 min) and after a week it will get where you can go for longer at a time.....Good luck !

    As long as you get your heart rate up and then do little exercises, like lifting light weights/lunges/squats you're doing awesome.

    You made a good start, which is better than most people.

    Just aim for a little further each time.  It will get better and easier :)  Good Luck.

    Don't give up!  It takes time to get into the habit of exercise.  Do 10 minutes a couple times a day for the first week, and build up to 15 and 20 minutes at a time, so on and so on.

    keep using it

    you will improve pretty quick if you are consistent with it. I would love to have an elliptical!
