Food Diary: Day 10

For 09/10/08: Woke up around 7:30 am, first meal at 1:20 pm. Two slices of ham and pine pizza from Upper Crust. Second meal at 8:00 pm, one doughnut with nuts and sugar frosting on top. 2x Heinekens, some crackers. Off to bed at 1 am.

Biked up to work all in one go with no breathers. Wore the heart rate monitor, which once again generated some awesome data. It took me 33 minutes, door to door, to cover the 5.4 miles. -5 min improvement over yesterday, hit the lights better.

Average heart rate: 156 bpm
Max heart Rate: 181 bpm

Found that tightening the chest band on the sensor generated much more accurate results, even without moistening the sensor.

On the ride home I made it in 15 minutes, covering 4.8 miles in 14:56 minutes.

Average heart rate: 157 bpm
Max heart rate: sensor borked, registered 236, likely a doubling error.

Did a set of 6 push-up, immediately recalled why I don't do them. I have elbows and shoulders that sound like an arthritic 80 year-old's.

Sleep was ok-ish, kinda restless.

What have you been eating lately? How are the bike rides going? I really think you should try push ups, even if your elbows crack.
