Today I managed to drag my thutt off the couch into the sweltering heat and over to the gym for some treadmill time with Dr. Phil. He gets me everytime! What a motivator! 🙂 I wanted to keep it easy due to my 7-miler yesterday and the redic heat. Event though I had to blow on my arm every couple minutes, it was all good!
I did a slow and easy 4 miles (at about a 10:15 pace) and it was delicious (as was the salacious Dr. Phil episode). I then took it to the recumbent bike and did a quick three miles. I had to finish watching the show! Priorities, people!
I was a happy camper when finished because I debated giving myself a free day and was glad I did not. Says both Tina and Caitlin, you NEVER regret a workout! Lately I have been thinking a lot about my heart rate while exercizing. Not to be cryptic, but I have been wanting to have more control (let’s go with knowledge of, first) over my heart rate while exercising, specifically keeping it low at times. So, I have decided to purchase a simple heart rate monitor OR figure out how to get the one on my Garmin to work. In all honesty I kinda want them to be separate so I do not need one with the other; the Garmin tends to be REALLY cumbersome!
I had forgotten that Husband gave me a generous gift card to Philadelphia Runner, my FAVE, so I have decided to make a lil’ trippy trip there tomorrow to buy the following:
-Said heart rate monitor
-Beverage holder (I have a camelbak but want a less burdensom sprinter maybe- I had one of these before that MOLDED! ew!)
-New shoes. It’s about that time.
What is on YOUR shopping list?!?!
