HRM Fail...

I failed!
Fully intending to try out my new HRM for this morning's cardio session, I dropped the transmitter part in the car on my way to the station so got to the gym at work and couldn't find it. :( At least I hadn't dropped it between the car and the station though, which is what I was worried about!

I was back on form again with this morning's cardio session - I've been trying out a friend's trick on the treadmill of sticking my towel over the time so I don't know how long I've run for, and this morning I made it to past the 20 minute mark before I started to feel tired, and finished at 25 minutes (once my song had finished - Aerosmith's Pink - LOL!). I was actually quite surprised as it's been 2 weeks now since I did a non-stop run of 'reasonable' length, so I was expecting to struggle this morning. To be honest, I could probably have run for longer but I wanted to spend some time on the bike as well today.

This week I've started to do some research into bikes so I can look into both cyclecommuting the 5 miles to work, and also start getting into mountain biking. I've volunteered to be part of one of my work's two Great Escape Challenge teams, so I need to get some training in if I'm not going to be the weakest link! - exciting times!

Today's Workout:
Walking (brisk, 3.8 mph) = 10 minutes (5, 5)
Running (slow, 5.6 - 5.8 mph) = 25 minutes (25 non-stop)
Stationary Bike (moderate, 90+ rpm, L7) = 13 minutes
