San Diego: 60 minutes in the fitness center

I was up at 4:45am so I could get to the airport to catch a 7:10am flight out to San Diego.

I arrived around 10:30 and I was at my hotel before noon.  I had no meetings until 2pm, so I headed off to the fitness center to try to get in some kind of a session.

I was feeling stiff and a bit tired from the early start, so I started easy, with a 30 minute march on the treadmill with the incline at 15%.  This slowly brought my HR up to the top of the UT1 range by the time I was finished.  Aside from being really bored, I was feeling pretty good.

So, I hopped on the elliptical to do another 30 minutes.  This time as a HIIT session with
6 x (4:20 of easy and 0:40 of really hard).  This was no where near as traumatic as the HIIT session I did on the treadmill in SF last week, but I was pretty gassed at the end of each sprint.

Then it was off to the rest of my day.  3 hours of internal meetings and then a customer dinner that lasted from 6:30 to 9:30.

Tomorrow:  I am hoping to head over to Crossfit Del Mar at 6am before my flight at 10AM up to San Jose.  The workout planned is

  • 3 x 1500m / 1’
    Rating: Cat IV pace; target SR 23-24 + (1:52)
  • 3 x 500m / 2’ easy
    Rating: Cat II pace: target SR 28-30 (1:45)
