Last night I flew from Boston to Stuttgart via Amsterdam, arriving at 9:15AM. I got maybe 3 hours of fitful sleep on the plane.
I had a meeting from 11-12 and the lunch with the customer. Then we drove back to Munich, well I rode and Martin drove. I fell asleep in the car for about an hour of the trip. Honestly, it was better sleep than what I got on the plane.
Back in Munich, I hung out at our office for an hour or so and caught up on emails. Then I walked to my hotel, which has a small but serviceable fitness center. I put on my workout clothes and headed down.
The plan was to do 60 to 80 minutes of low intensity aerobic work. And that’s what I did.
- 20′ treadmill death march: 15% grade, 3.2 mph
- 30′ elliptical trainer, random profile avg level 16/25
- 30′ stationary bike, hill profile, avg level 15
- HR limit: 150
I was happy with the nice low HR, and especially that my HR was dropping fast with lower loads. Not exactly what I want to be doing 12 days before the HOCR, but you do what you need to do.
Tomorrow: Morning workout, then meetings all day. Probably something a bit more challenging and shorter than this. Maybe treadmill intervals.
