Spin, Swim, Strides & Heart Rate
Today I did a plethora of workouts. Spin Intervals - 55 min Mostly Z4 Swim - 40 min Mish mash of crap. I didn't go with a workout in mind. Run - 30 min w 6 x 100m strides This was exciting for me because it was the first time I was allowed to do strides since my injury. Obviously, because my times are all over the place: 1 = 7:16 (164 bpm) 2 = 6:59 (162) 3 = 6:36 (166) 4 = 6:05 (163) 5 = 6:09 (165) 6 = 5:49 (164) Definitely NOT very consistent. I'll have to fine tune that, but damn it felt good to fire up those muscles! I am trying to work on paying more attention to my heart rate. I think I'm naturally a high beater. My resting heart rate is 85, but I might have to do another test because from what I understand that seems pretty high for someone this active. Happy Friday Peeps!
