Wed Spin Intervals

I'm fighting a cold. Not cool. It's been knocking on the door for a couple of days now. I thought it was passing, but right now I have a scratchy thorat and am feeling like I just got run over by a freight truck. But that's not why I'm posting..... I wanted to post about my new love: Wednesday Morning Spin Intervals - I love you. I wore my Garmie so I could track my heart rate. We did 6 intervals for about 3-4 min each. Here are my max bpm/interval: 156, 162, 167, 172, 171, 177 http://connect.garmin.com/activity/2614480 I also swam for about 45 min before and then again 15 min after. I wore my new awesome one-piece and just threw my bike shorts and a tank over them. It worked out pretty good because I knew I was just going back in the water - but in retrospect, it wasn't really worth it because I was tired and didn't have the energy to bust out some more drills. Also, I don't think its a good idea to do the push-ups after a swim. My arms were worn out!

Good job on your work outs! make sure you get youre rest in! Nothing worse than being sick...believe me, I know! Not sure how you could do push ups after swimming, you are a tough cookie thats for sure!

I can't believe you swam before and AFTER. No push-ups for sure. Especially b/c you're feeling sick. I took Mucinex and it really helped. Feel better and great job this morning!

Mucinex rocks! If it's just in the head, work it out, chest means rest! Yay for swimming and yeah, arms toasted, push ups, no way;)

Thanks for the comment on the heart rate stuff. I have no clue about any of it. But I don't plan to be a heart rate Nazi either :) Just to use it as a guide.

Swimming along wears out my arms. I can barely blow dry my hair after a hard swim. I can't imagine push ups too!

Get well soon.

Hope you feel better and spin is too hardcore for me. Nice job and keeping the <3 rate up!

Interesting. I agree with you totally. Furthermore I have another point to add. I think its essential that children today have a friendly and good swim instructor to guide them along. So that they will take to the hobby with delight, rather than find it a useless skill. But then again, most kids always love swimming afterall.

Sorry you are feeling sick. :( Great brick workout though!

Wow, swim before and after spinning plus pushups...holy cow! My arms would be jello. My legs too for that matter.
