Workout #14 (Cardio)

I didn’t get to bed at 8:30 last night–or even close; I needed some time to relax before I went to sleep and it turned out that I didn’t go to sleep until close to 11 PM. I also forgot to set my alarm, but I rarely need my alarm to wake up anyway, and indeed, I was up at 4:25, a little tired, but ready to go.

I did my cardio workout this morning, 40 minutes on the elliptical. I burned 520 calories, went a distance of 2.79 miles and reached a peak RPM of 102. I also needed 73 RPM to maintain my 149 heart rate. Furthermore, I noticed today that my recovery rate is improving.

Tomorrow is lower-body strength training so today’s round was in preparation for that:

Group 1                1st Set      2nd Set      3rd Set
-------                -------      -------      -------
Seated leg curl          15/75        12/90       12/105
Leg extensions           12/75        12/75        12/75
Bosu crunches             20LR         25LR         25LR

It felt good coming out of the gym with the temps in the low 30s after the workout this morning. Next workout is tomorrow morning.
