Amy and I completed this workout on Thursday and the Polar said I burned 429 calories. We moved quickly through the tracks and didn’t really break in between songs.
On Thursday I started feeling kinda sick. Colby has been sick with bronchitis and I am just so stuffed up. I took Friday off and planned to run 5 miles at the park with Amy this morning.
My Garmin was all crazy at the beginning of our run and saying we were running a 11 min mile. Amy’s watch said 9:20… all I knew is that I felt kinda like I was dying. I couldn’t breath well and the pace that I was running last week seemed so hard today. I did wear my heart rate monitor and was shocked to look down and see I was in the 180′s right away! I knew I was sick and the sudafed probably didn’t help my heart rate out at all either. When we got to 3 miles, I told her to go ahead without me and run until 4 and then turn around. I slowed my pace down a lot and walked a few times and started to feel better. She got about 1/4 of a mile ahead of me and I was happy to finish the last mile with her. When I got home, I was shocked to see that my HR had gotten up to 187! YIKES! Tough workout and the compression is ON! I’m going to take it easy and take another rest day tomorrow!
