Well I posted yesterday about my mistake while doing my workout. It was not a huge deal, but it kinda was. I went to the gym today to try to redeem myself. I was not sure if I was going to be able to pull off that high of a heart rate consistently for 51 minutes. I took the treadmill workout in chunks. I took a – mile at a time approach. I even told myself that if after each mile was completed I wanted to stop, then that would be ok. I think I am growing up. 🙂 I ended up running about 5.5 miles or so. My goal was to keep my HR in the range of 163-168. The outcome? I averaged 164! 🙂 Yes, I was a bit happy about this small feat. Towards the end I could feel my vocal cord issues try to ruin the party, but basically pushed on and told it to leave me the hell alone. 😉 I gave it a bit of my evil eye as well. That usually speaks volumes( just ask
Matt my kids). Even though I was not breaking any records by any stretch of the imagination; it has been a while since I pushed myself ( even though it was on the treadmill) for this amount of time. It gives me a bit of hope! I won’t even tell you that I peeked ahead at a future workout and I am to sustain this same heart rate for aver 1.5 hours. Holy crap. 🙂
Andi’s nerds interested in the breakdown ( I actually used the lap function for the miles) here it is. Notice the decline in my pace….might be due to fatigue and or hydration and who knows what else!
Mile 1 -8:50 ( I know..who am I??)
Mile 3– 9:30
Mile 4– 9:35
Mile 5– 10:05
.5 – 4:04
I know I don’t look all that happy here…but I am
When was your last great workout?
