Oh. My. Goodness.
I was totally planning to go for a walk/run today but I decided not to. My hip is still a little sore and I’d hate to push it to an injury, so I thought why not one more day? I hopped on my bike and decided to mix it up a little and do the second competition cycle. It was long and intense. Lots of hills. I was sweating it up pretty good and had to keep slowing down to bring my pulse down. When the going gets tough on a bike I have a tendency to push hard – you know, to get to the top of the hill! Today I realized that pushing myself to a heart rate of 170 (Holy muscle burning, Batman!) in order to get to the top of the virtual hill was doing me no favors. Ha ha!
Can I just give mad props to the iPhone camera? It is one of the most entertaining things to play around with while bored on a stationary cycle…
I finally figured out how to comment! You are SO inspiring. Go, Girl!!
