4 in the morning, it came without a warning, everybody's got a place to be...

Can anyone name the song in the Title? Hint- 1980's.

Last night- 45 min bike TT on the trainer due to the rain. Fortunately I have the Tour of California TiVo'ing, so it's almost like I have someone to ride with.

This morning- Cindy (5 pull-ups, 10 push-ups, 15 squats, AMRAP in 20 min). 14 rounds. Stupid non-kippable ergo pull-up bar.

So last night I was having a race day nutrition/strategy chat w/Max. In doing so I realized I haven't worn a HRM in a long time, so I decided to see where my HR wound up on both the bike and during Cindy. During the TT I got up into the 160's, and the most I saw w/Cindy was 155. Crazy- I was expecting higher numbers. Apparently Cindy doesn't excite me the way she used to. Oh well...

  1. I find it hard to get my HR over 160 these days no matter how hard I work. Very often it caps out at about 154/155. My theory is that it is due to the constant tearing down of our bodies - to support this theory, I notice that if I have an easy day or two (or should I say easier - none are easy), I can get my HR up on the following days workout. I am going to test that tonight as yesterday was a day off.
