We Endure

I joined a website that helps you track your mileage and lets you know how you are progressing towards your goal. Up to now I have been posting my workouts but haven't kept track of the mileage in any way. The website is called I set up a profile and am going to keep track of my running and biking. I'll also still post here since it keeps me honest and I need to focus on weights too.

Today's workout was cardio. I ran on the treadmill for 5 km in 29:10 with a max heart rate of 170 bpm. Unfortunately the 170 was my HR for over two thirds of the run. Not good!

Then I did stationary bike for a while. Cycled 24 km but wasn't sure of the time since the display was broken. The HR was 135 bpm which is healthy and sustainable. Drank a full bottle of water during the ride.

I feel pretty good now. Supper wasn't much to write about but I'm having a cup of hot tea right now and am sitting here waiting for a phone call about one of my work orders. It is 8 PM so hopefully the call comes soon and I can call it a night. Yes I know that I'm lazy and slothful but I'm ok with that part of my character. lol

The BBQ was chicken. It tasted pretty good.
