Heart Rate Training – Week 6-9

Monday 10/10 – Planned easy run of 40 minutes. 5 Minute warm up at 1-2 heart rate, 30 minutes work at 1-2 heart rate, 5 minute cool down at 1-2 heart rate. This run got cancelled. I woke a little before my alarm with horrible stomach pains. I won’t go in to detail but suffice it to say I spent most of the morning in the restroom and the rest of the day sleeping on the couch.

Tuesday 10/11 – Planned medium run of 40 minutes. 5 Minute warm up at 1-2 heart rate, 30 minutes work at 3 heart rate, 5 minute cool down at 1-2 heart rate and BBG. Completed 2.64 miles at 15:33 (Warm up 19:00, Work 14:38, Cool down 18:20). Hubby was home from work this morning to go to lunch with our oldest at school. I was excited when he agreed to go with me. BUT he ended up having achilles issues (a recurring problem for him) so he couldn’t run. He took the kids form me so I could run alone. It felt pretty good. The first half was great! I ran a mile, did my drills, then took off once my HR came down. Drills always make my HR really high. On the way back my stomach started bothering me again. It wasn’t anything like Monday, but it was uncomfortable. Along with the discomfort, my HR got a lot more unstable. I had to slow my run down substantially and even then I was getting above my goal zone. I did my best and got to walk back with hubby which was awesome.
We took Chick-Fil-A up to the school for our son so I wasn’t feeling up to BBG right when we got home. I ended up getting it done after I picked up the middle child and before I picked up the older child. Luckily he had a club after school today, so I had some extra time. BBG went great. I felt especially strong on the first circuit. I completed 2,2,2,1+16 – 2,2,1,1 – 2,2,1+16,1 – 2,2,1,1. We also have a baseball game this evening so I’m happy to get it done so early.

Wednesday 10/12 – Planned easy run of 40 minutes. 5 Minute warm up at 1-2 heart rate, 30 minutes work at 1-2 heart rate, 5 minute cool down at 1-2 heart rate.  Completed 2.37 miles at 17:22 (Warm up 16:58, Work 17:31, Cool down 17:33). This morning’s run was mostly a walk with a bit of running. We started out heading up to the First Monday grounds. There was a wagon train there and they were getting ready to head out. I paused my run and we hung around to watch them leave. That was really neat for the kids (and for me!). I’m a little sore today (legs yesterday) but not horrible. I’m happy to have gotten it done this morning. Things are pretty busy this afternoon/evening. As much as it works to walk by the school between pickups, I much prefer to go in the mornings.

Thursday 10/13 – Planned medium run of 40 minutes. 5 Minute warm up at 1-2 heart rate, 30 minutes work at 3 heart rate, 5 minute cool down at 1-2 heart rate and BBG. Completed 2.27 miles at 15:34 (Warm up 18:57, Work 14:39, Cool down 18:19). I got sick to my stomach again this morning. I went ahead with my run because i felt better but then, yikes (again). I still get a kick out of how high my HR goes when my stomach hurts. I’m sure it makes sense but I’m totally A&P ignorant so it’s fascinating to me. I felt better after a stop at the park and was able to finish out, although I did have to take more walk breaks than usual. I can’t say for sure if that was due to my stomach, or because I was having trouble slowing down. I do miss running fast. I completed 2,2,1+10,1 – 2,2,1+10,1 – 2,2,1+10,1 – 2,2,1+16,1.

About anestinthemaking

Hi! I'm Kristi! I'm a mom, a wife, a daughter, a friend. I'm a newbie to sewing and blogging, but I'm excited to get started! Sewing is the first hobby I've really had in a long time. In high school, I sang, I played the piano, I played in the band, I wrote in journals. I went off to college, got married, started a family, and lived a life without hobbies. How boring?! Then I started reading blogs. One thing led to another and soon I was at my co-worker's house borrowing her sewing machine! I haven't looked back since! Sewing is a release for me. It's so much fun to create beautiful and useful things. It's fun to be learning something new, and it's fun to share it with you! So welcome! Take a look around, and let me know you're here! I love to meet people and respond to every message I get! And I can't wait to meet you!
