This time I actually got through all the exercises. My muscles aren't complaining quite so much today. However, I was a bit concerned about what my heart rate monitor was telling me. Yesterday, I got up to about 80% max, panting a bit. Today when I did the workout, it was at 90% and I was just gasping for air. Gulping like a fish practically. It was up that high for a good minute. I didn't like it. Heart rate was around 168.
Today was a stressful day, though. Well, part of it. I left for work a little early, figuring I'd take some time getting my room set up, have my coffee, etc. It's been raining like crazy in the Chicago area lately. When I got about four miles from work, the road was under water and impassable. And everything west of me was too. I had to backtrack all the way back to my town and take a different route. Apparently my little subdivision is an island of dry surrounded by flooding! Needless to say, I was not early for work. But no one else was, either. My administrator was trapped on the expressway and never even made it.
School was called off at 1 pm. It was my first ever Rain Day. And it's supposed to keep raining for the next couple of days. I think I should probably psych myself up for lawn mowing season...
