Lesson Learned

Saturday, April 28, 2012

For three years, I have been working out on a fairly regular schedule (average every other day).
My work is quite sedentary (I spend most of my time sitting in front aof a computer).
Most of my workout activities include:
- aerobic warm up for about 1/2 hour hitting 85%+ of maximum heart rate.
- Strengthening to fatigue, etc).
- Stretching fo at least 10 minutes after workout.
I did hit my weight goal weight. I am maintaining my weight, but I never felt the 'High' that I keep hearing about, I just felt tired.
Lately, I have been out on my new bicycle riding for hours at a time. I find that at the end of a long ride I feel better than I have felt in a long time.
The clincher is noting that my blood pressure is lower the next day!

More energy
Better weight control
Less tired
Better sleep
Lower blood pressure
Just plain feel better

I will continue to ride distances!
I am not saying 'don't do intense aerobics' and I will continue to do that, but I will continue to ride longer distances!

If I can do it, so can you. Whatever your workout regime is, consider endurance training also.
