Tuesday: 40′ Inclined March in Hsinchu

After flying from Boston to Tokyo, waiting around for a couple hours, then flying on to Taipei and taking a car from there to Hsinchu, I arrived at my hotel around 10pm.  Roughly 21 hours of travel time.  I slept about an hour on the first flight and maybe 2 hours on the second one.  I knew I needed a full nights sleep and I didn’t trust my body’s internal clock to let that happen, so I took an ambien and was out cold for 6 hours.

I set the alarm for 4:45 so that I could get a quick workout in before I needed to head to the office at 6:30.  I was in the hotel gym at 5am, and I figure I had time for a 40 minute workout.

I decided to keep it pretty tame, so I headed to a treadmill and set the incline to 15% and the pace to 3mph, basically a fast walk.  When I’ve done this workout in the past, I end up with a HR that rises steadily through the session, today was no exception.  I slowed to 2.8mph with 5 minutes to go, and then back up to 3.2 for the last 2 minutes.

It was humid in the gym and I was very sweaty when I finished.

Tomorrow:  I have more time tomorrow morning, so I think I will do a fitness center triathlon 3 x 30′ on different machines.
