Hey, guys, just thought I'd share a quick little story that made me feel so good about myself. Well, i sprained my ankle about a week ago playing basketball in p.e., well yesterday I also had p.e., and at the beginning of the hour we do a 8 minute ab work out, with crunches and different forms of leg raises. Trust me, they hurt. Well, the after that we run anywhere from 8 to 9 minutes. Well, we were on our last one, called double crunches, which is where your shoulder blades don't touch the ground and you bring your knees up so that your doing real small crunches. Well, I've been working on my abs for a while, and thank goodness. He told our class to do the crunches until we couldn't anymore, then start running. I WAS THE LAST ONE ON THE FLOOR DOING CRUNCHES! I probably did them for about 3 minutes. There are some real good athletes in that class too. And you know what, I didn't stop because it hurt, I stopped because I didn't want to get run over by the people who were running! I was so happy. I tried, and everyone was like "go michelle" and they were all cheering for me! It was so great! Really, guys, I'm only a little sore today, but I'm so glad! Thanx for listening u guys! Lots of luv to everyone, good luck!

michelle, i have a question for you. i am 61, 5' 10'' and 145, i want to lose some more weight, i have started jumproping. Is that as effective as running if you do it a certain amount of time? if so, for how long a day should i do it. Ive been doing about 400-500 a day but it doesnt seem like enough. any advice, e-mail me. SHISTAHYMYA @ wierd name, i know.
