Weekend Workouts

Map of 21/01/07 runYesterday I taught my "Step and Tone" class at the gym. As usual, simple step choreography combined with muscular endurance training. The class was fairly small, which was a bit of a letdown after the packed class last week, but they won't all be large classes. The gym seemed fairly quiet, so maybe it was just wasn't a busy day at the gym.

HR graph for 21/01/07 runToday, hubby and I ran 9 miles through the Englischer Garten. It was warm out, between 6 and 8°C, but it was VERY windy. Winds of 30-40 km/hr, with gusts up to 50 km/hr! So we changed direction a lot, so we weren't always running into the wind. Even so, when we were running right into the wind, my pace was considerably slower, and my heart rate much higher. So instead of staying under 70% of Heart Rate Reserve (HRR) my heart rate climbed up to 75% when running into the wind. Still, a good run.

It will get colder, next week-end it may snow in München. Then you have to ski through the E. Garten.
