One very frustrating issue on today's run. My HRM is not working! It was doing some crazy things on Saturday morning's run - mainly going to the "In Zone Training stats" that normally only show up when you place the watch right in front of the transmitter/chest strap. This morning, the watch wasn't showing any HR at the beginning...then it was showing numbers in the 30s, 40s and 50s...then it started showing nothing again.
So, I made this an easy run by feel - although I know that there were times that my HR was higher than is should be during an easy run. Especially since I ended up running at a 10:31/mile pace - while Saturday's easy run was at a 11:49/mile pace. The cool temperatures helped, I'm sure (it was a crisp 43 degrees when I headed out this morning) - but I doubt they helped that much.
Later during my workday I did my push ups. Week 2 of the Hundred Push Ups challenge. Sets of 9, 11, 8, 8 and max (I did 13) with 60 seconds rest in between. It ends up that the time between the last set of 8 and the max set was probably 5 minutes as I got a call for work in between. 49 push ups in total....Woo Hoo!!!
