This morning was a very quite and peaceful day in my neighborhood. At 6:30, the birds were singing, the sun was coming up and the boys (they are from the other side of the river, the Rio Grande) were cutting the grass on the golf course! There was a light breeze out of the west and the temp was 72* (sorry Ironbenny you know I can't resist).
As I placed my heart rate monitor on I always check to see what is my resting heart rate. Well not resting as in bed resting but resting as it is first thing in the morning and after I have gone.....well you know. This morning I did a double take! I even took off my monitor and made sure the leads were wet (a little licky lick) and put it back on. Sure enough my resting Heart Rate was 38!.... I've seen it as low as 44 at the doctors but never below 40! WOW!
I did the woods course but I forgot my tennis ball for a fartlek run. I guess I was so befuddled by my heart rate I just forgot my ball. So I did hard easy half miles with the first mile as a warm up then hard for a half and easy for the next half and so on... My heart rate got to 155 btw! So 7 miles in 57'48".
I have to take the Portfolio Manager to the hospital today at lunch time, he's having some minor (?) surgery that requires some one to drive him home, so no swim at lunch today. Maybe on the way home.
So how low can you go?
