Thursday~ OFF! 2 times this week. Ahhhh! My hacking cough is getting a lot better at least.
Friday~ Early morning spin. My regulars are slowly trickling back into class. Summer really is just about over ( Yahooo!) I repeated Wednesday’s strength interval class. I did the exact same class, but I worked a lot harder this morning! I have proof! Blurry proof, but still. I do cool down, but always stop my watch right as that portion of class starts. Always have, always will. 😉
I always praise the use of heart rate monitors. I am such a numbers person. I am not even talking about the calorie burn either ( even though I think that’s a significant difference), but rather the actual heart rate average. It was pretty elevated the 2nd time around (today’s class). I had moments in the 170’s for a quick few seconds too. I actually feel slightly lost without my heart rate monitor on. Most of my cardio workouts have a purpose so when I can’t see how hard I am working it seems pointless. Dumb? Maybe to some, but not to me. And I am always right. Don’t ever forget it. 🙂
I mentioned that I was doing AdvoCares 24 day challenge. I am on day 4! Only 20 to go…. 😉 It’s going well so far.
Question: How hard are you really working?? Do you use a HR monitor?
On tap for Saturday: Run.
