This is for Deb. Believe it or not I have never heard of the Hamster Dance or the song. Such a sheltered life I lead.
Just got back from my walk/jog. I got out on the road at 8:40. I moved a little faster today. I went to the deadend, back to Brown's driveway, and home. It took me 33 minutes. I always stop and pick up a rock for my garden. I have the first row on the front of the porch almost done. I was hungry the whole way.
This is my training routine for now:
I warm-up while I pray the rosary. That takes about 15 minutes. During that time I get my heart rate into the training zone (121) and try to keep it there. Then I turn on the radio and do 50 steps running at a good pace followed by about 100 steps recovery- generally until my heart rate drops to 116. I rotate that until I get to the rock pile. I find a rock for my garden and finish the workout. Not exactly the training style of a Boston Marathon runner, but it works for me. I am in need of a new monitor. About 10 minutes into the workout, it will jump to over 250 and then drop down to normal which totally screws up my stats. Before my next 5K I am going to get a new one, I think.
