As soon as I started this workout routine, I broke it. I went for a nice hike on Sunday at Amicalola Falls. This included going down, up, and back down a flight of 425 steps. I don’t know the vertical extent of the steps but it took me 6 minutes and 30 seconds. At the top, my heart rate recovered from 176 to 140 in 60 seconds.
Yesterday my random workout was stretching. Today it was stretching again, but this evening I decided to do thrusters. I used a 28kg kettlebell and got through 11 minutes plus 11 reps, so if my calculations are correct, that’s 77 reps. The only problem is that a workout like this tends to pump me up – so here I am blogging instead of sleeping.
I plan on doing the Amicalola hike again next weekend, and this time I’m going up the stairs first thing, instead of after a 30+minute uphill hike. I will also wear my combination GPS/heart monitor so I can get some numbers on heart rate and recovery.
