TM run -
Finally a run without any soreness or tightness in my hip, PTL.
I wore my heart rate monitor (more on that below) and the bpm was 167. Don’t really know what that means.
Do I want the numbers to be low like I’m really fit or do I want them to be high like I’m getting a great workout in??
Yesterday we didn’t do much except take the dog on a walk and because my life is boring, I have to make that dog walk sound exciting. Good luck with that…
After talking about heart rate monitors a week or so ago, reader Lori sent me an extra Garmin HRM that she had. Thank you! I had never ever used one before so I just sorta winged it.
I did a little Googling and figured out how to sync up the watch to monitor which was pretty simple.
Then we went walking.
We walked 3.15 miles and my average beats per minute was 71. I don’t know if that’s good, bad or dead, but I came home and laid on the couch and my hear rate was 54 so I’m guessing that’s my resting heart rate since I was doing some heavy duty resting.
I wore it again this morning on the treadmill and was glad it didn’t chafe me at all; I even forgot about it until the end of the run.
Anyone know anything about heart rates or should I hit up Dr. Google? Like, what are good or bad numbers?
This afternoon we gave Howard Schultz some money and then drove over to Back Bay in Newport Beach to walk the dog again. Bathing suit season’s coming up and Marni really wants to look her best.
We walked 3 miles which tired the little girl’s legs out. And Marni was pretty wiped too.
I know Julie has high flavored coffee expectations like I do, and I’ve been giving it a valiant effort lately.
I bought a Living Social/Groupon/same store, different name deal for CoffeeForLess and then found a coupon code so I was excited to try out some new flavors.
I bought Chocolate Chip Cookie and Raspberry from the New York Coffee brand and really wanted to fall head over heels with both, but they’re just ehhh. another strikeout.
