To start out my day I had my annual Stress Test. You all may think I'm a little weird but I actually liked having my Stress Test. It was really COOL to see what my heart did under stress. And of course I thought I could break some kind of stress test record. For longest on the mill, highest incline or something. Then I could dance around the room to the Rocky theme song . No such luck... They made me stay on for mill for 10 min max..
Just in case your wondering... I passed with flying colors. And the Doc told me my resting heart rate was 53 bpm.
He told me I am ATHLETIC.
Me Athletic, Now that's AWESOME!!!
The typical healthy resting heart rate in adults is 60–80 bpm.
Cyclist Lance Armstrong has a resting HR around 32 bpm and Marathoner Ryan Hall has a resting HR in the mid-20's. I'm not in their league but hey I'm Athletic.
Do you have an annual Stress Test?
What is your resting Heart Rate?
I am having to take my workouts easy due to the Plantar Fasciitis. So today's workout consisted of:
1 mile warm-up walk, 2 mile easy jog, 1 mile cool down walk all on the treadmill. Followed by 30 minutes on the spinning bike. I felt really good. My foot pain was not as bad as last week so that's progress. I stretched for 15 min and headed home to ice.
Tomorrow I will be swimming or spinning hard to say... I will also be doing the Ab Ripper X. Love To Feel The Burn...
Maybe I should let you all help me decide....
Should I Swim or Spin?
