Elliptical v/s Treadmill

These days I am doing 40 minutes in 2 tranches of 20 minutes each on the treadmill. Earlier I used to do 20 minutes on the elliptical and 20 minutes on the treadmill. I was wondering if the treadmill was best for me or what. I googled up and found this answer which was interesting. So from tomorrow a change will be in.


Back to the gym

Monday morning today and it was the first day of school too for Kavya and hence for us as well. Woke up at 0500 (back to the grind) and hit the gym after almost a month….. Had planned to do so yesterday with Vinit but due to some last minute commitment could not make it. Made it today after all. 20 minutes on the treadmill as usual but did only 10 minutes on the elliptical. Will get back soon into the groove.

Blaring music at the gym

Every morning at the gym I have to request for lowering of the volume once I enter. The music is blaring away to glory. I for one listen to podcasts / self help stuff on the ipod daily and even with the volume set to full I am unable to listen to it. Mind you I use in ear head phones so the music I guess is definitely very loud. I have had a similar problem at Otters when using the treadmill. Wonder if all gyms have this same ritual? Maybe someone can write about his or her own experience.
