I am about to give up. I usually spend an hour or so on the elliptical but I did a 30 minute time attack yesterday and last Friday to see how close I could get to TheLegacy.

Friday - 487 calories / resistance 10 / incline 20 / ~16.1 cal per minute / ~165-170 strides per minute / ~159 heart rate

Monday - 513 calories / resistance 10 / incline 20 / ~17 cal per minute / ~170-180 strides per minute / ~168 heart rate (prob higher...I hit 168 around 13 minutes in and it just stayed there, machine may be wonky)

My heart was thumping so hard yesterday it took me 5 minutes to get my heart rate down to 117 after I was done; to get 800 calories in 30 minutes I'd have to do 27 calories per minute, a far cry from my record of 17 I achieved yesterday.

Genetics I guess.

Today I think I'll max the machine resistance to 20 and sprint as hard as I can for 15-30 seconds. If I can't even reach 27 calories/minute during that brief duration, then beating TheLegacy is absolutely impossible and I will just forget about it haha.
