1st recovery day from strength training
Tuesday, October 02, 2012
The good news is that I'm only a little sore today. I suspect it may have something to do with my diet because I've read several times that on low-carb there is less build-up of lactic acid and therefore faster recovery. Time will tell.
This morning I did low-level cardio and decided to start taking advantage of my gym membership since I don't like running outside when it's dark.
I did 12 minutes elliptical, new to me, takes time to get used to; 12 minutes rowing machine which I enjoyed; 12 minutes treadmill uphill walking at incline of 8; 12 minutes of recumbent bicycle which I found very boring. I ended with 12 minutes of stretching.
heartrate was between 115-130, calories burned about 350
Hopefully I'll get some swimming in this afternoon.
