Today I did three sets of cardio, each getting progressively harder.
Rowing machine 30 min 5450m
Elliptical 30 min max HR 150bpm
Stairmaster 30 min max HR 162 bpm
It was a good workout that burned off a lot of energy. Went to the gym in the afternoon because we were working all morning and are planning to work this evening. The split shift was a nice change and I had fun doing my PT today. The rowing machine was a good workout. I really felt it in my back and butt. The medic said it was a good choice for exercise but that I should not extend my knees all the way so I concentrated on keeping them slightly bent during the extension. Also concentrated on pulling my shoulder blades together during the pull part of the exercise. I'm curious to see if I feel any effects tomorrow.
Also, a replacement part for the hot water tank in the girls shower room has finally arrived. I have been doing a combination of showers in the guy's room and bird baths in the girls toilet room. It depends on how busy the guy's shower is. I can't wait to have the girl's shower room back again and have a nice long hot shower without anyone waiting outside the door telling us to hurry up.
It has been cold and rainy here all week and I was joking with the guys that we are going to go home without a tan. I'd rather have a little cold weather, though, since it is easier to bundle up than to escape the heat. I'm sure the heat will come back in a week or two anyway. When it rains all the pollution and dirt is cleaned out of the air and it is easier to breathe so for now I am enjoying the place. My cardio workouts have improved, I think.
