A Gift from my HRM
I was filled with dread because the Mr is always complaining about how he can never get up to his target heart rate for more than a few minutes per workout if at all. I was now in his range. It wasn't going to change my calorie burn. If I had to do another 10-20 minutes to hit the 1000 calorie mark I needed then that's what was going to be done. Period. I was glad to see that I really only needed another 5 minutes and/or more intensity to get what I needed. Now I will say that after adding those newer Supreme 90 Day over the past 5 weeks that our usual walk in the park with hills now requires 2x around the trail (for the most part) to reach the same calorie burn. Now THAT sucked! So we will have to just accept that an extra 20 minutes will have to be added to that one. But other than that, I've come out calorie burn wise, unscathed which is a relief!
So eff you new age, you're not going to beat me!
Have you noticed you have to work harder from year to year or has your calorie burn/effort remained pretty steady? (Please note I'll curse you under my breath if you're the latter!)
