Short Tempo & more

Yesterday's workout:
On the track - 2 miles easy, 3 miles averaging 5:54 per mile, finish 1 mile easy. I used a heart rate monitor for the first time in years. My max heart rate was 151, and my average was 132 beats per minute. During my 3 miles of tempo running my heart rate stayed at 148 BPM. According to the heart rate calculations the 148 is at my maximum heart rate range between 80 and 85%. I guess they call this the anaerobic zone. That is the zone where you cannot speak eloquently. Maybe one of these days I'll figure out what to do with these numbers but for now I've got to run.

Today's workout:
15 minutes of dumbbells on the ball. I love that little jingle, "dumbbells on the ball".
35 minutes of a steady swim in the pool for lunch.
BRICK: 12 mile Bike ride in the park on my way home from work, followed with 2 miles running barefoot.

Saturday 5:00am:
My wife and I fly to Vancouver Canada and set sail on Holland America for our 11 day cruise and land adventure trip. Actually, 3 days on ship and 7 days on land by train, bus, and boat to make our way up to Anchorage, Alaska. We are excited and are ready to go and celebrate a wonderful time together.

I am not bringing my wet suit but I do hope to get a couple days of pool swimming, running (probably on treadmill), strength training, and stationary biking in on early mornings.

Hopefully, I get a chance while I'm up there to update my blog. I'll post pictures later too.

Peace,
Papa Louie

Have a fun time. Getting away with family is a great way to rejuvenate.

Enjoy the scenery and different opportunities to workout. Don't stress too much about what you can or can't get done, it doesn't take much to maintain fitness and you'll come back refreshed and ready to hit the roads and water with renewed gusto.

Wow! We love Holland America. We have cruised with them twice. The food is so freakin good. I was so spoiled when I came home. Have fun and take some great pictures!

Your heart rate is super low. If I rain a 5-something mile, I'd have a heart attack!
