At the gym at my office, I hopped on the treadmill for a 45-minute, controlled pace run (threshold, I guess). I ran for 5 minutes at 5 mph, 6 mph, 7 mph, and 7.5 mph, 20 minutes at 8 mph, and finished with 5 minutes at 7 mph, all at 1% incline. The spike in my heart rate is due to an experiment trying to tuck my headphone cord into the strap, not some physiological problem. I also started the garmin about thirty seconds late and forgot to stop it for a few minutes after the workout. It looks like the contact of my HR strap was poor, especially after I took off my shirt at 15:00. The strap slipped somewhat during the workout, so I am unsurprised.
My legs felt good this morning after a day of rest, and they didn't feel particularly bad after the exercise. I did note a small pinching sensation in my lower left calf which seemed to subside after stretching.
Currently thinking about scalability of orienteering
. I have many thoughts about the three A-meets CSU has organized in the past three years, some of which I may record publicly in my log soon.
Also, are you @$ing kidding me
