So my lawn needed to be groomed, well, maybe whacked! It was long. This morning started out with a 3 mile run around Memorial park which it turns out was a totally awesome run.
Mile 1 = 11:50
Mile 2 = 10:50 (22:40)
Mile 3 = 10:11 (32:51)
Z1 = 5:42
Z2 = 20:54
Z3 = 6:15
This was great. My heart rate stayed where I wanted it and I negative split each mile as planned, although I was a little faster than I planned, I was looking to negative split about 30 seconds off each mile, not a minute!! YaHOO!!
Then the freakn` lawn. OK, so I thought just mow it and be done but it needed edging and weed whacking so 4 hours later I'm done and my lower back is achyn`. Makes me realize I need to work on low back strengthening exercises, off all people, I should know right, being a chiropractor. Anyway, being as my back is fired up and it's time to go watch my daughter's softball game, I will reschedule my swim workout for tomorrow. It's all Good!
PS. forgot to mention that I wore my heart rate monitor during the lawn work and dang, talk about a cardio workout. My HR was running about 135ish, pushing that mower around for about an hour. OK, so I'm a geek. How else was I supposed to know what my HR was during all that work, but most are probably thinking why would you want to know, lol.
