polar heart rate monitor

Posted in Uncategorized by Mike on January 4, 2009

I didn’t realize that all the cardio machines at Chrome and Fern would read my heart rate monitor that was kinda cool.

I decided to set a benchmark, something I can test against down the road but no something I will ever intentiionally train directly.

on a treadmill
warm up starting at 3.0 mph, accelerate by0.5 mph every 30 seconds
when the speed hits 6.0 mph start the heart rate monitor, run 1 mile, 10 minutes
Max Hr 180 Avg Hr 161
Now I just need to do the same again in 6 months or so

30lb dumbell
Row 20/20
Lunge 5/5
X 3
Bicep curl 5/5 X 3

I did a bit of light stretching and did some walking at a moderate pace until it was time to go.

Today dawns and the soreness hasn’t set in.. yet.

It’s  a pretty lesiurely day of continuing to put away things from out trip, doing laundry and just generally getting back up to speed. I have tomorrow off as well. I’ve got a bunch of chores to get done then as well.

Food today is pretty carb centric, we had some sweet rolls fro breakfast, primarily cause we had a breakfast a few days ago that was supposed to be sweet rolls and turned out not to be, they’ve been on our brains since. Naan bread and a light salad for lunch, dinner will be pasta with some sausage worked in, that’ll be leftovers for Monday and Tuesday at work as well. I’ll probably go in for  a snack this afternoon, maybe a protein bar, they hold me over well but we’ll see.

Tomorrow, with the day off, I’ll have the desire to go out to eat. I dunno what I will have tomorrow, right now and egg salad sounds tasty.

I should get a jog in later.
