Pain of the Day

Today I was supposed to workout with a trainer, but, he blew me off. So, I’m at the gym with no plan. Oh well — you tell me how well I did!

Took me an hour, but, that was probably due to me not having a set routine. Still did my 60 secs of cardio between sets. I sometimes blow off the cardio if I spend a lot of time racking weights — I just do the next set, instead. (Since I’m rested, muscle wise, and strength training gets my HR higher than cardio).

I wore my polar HR monitor today. I like two things about it: Big HR display, and it works with the machines, so when I’m on a treadmill, I don’t have to look at my “watch”. But, the Garmin pwns it, by taking 1 second snapshots, and allowing me to see them on a graph. I’m not 100% sure, but I’ll likely be selling this puppy. Workout HR info:
