Thank you Julie for posting.. It always help to have interesting articles like this one to read. I usually break up my exercise into 2 as well... usually during the week, I walk during lunch and then more exercise after work. And I agree with Gwen, wearing an HRM does help.

i agree... especially the HRM... you want to know your true level of exertion or lack... wear one. calulators can only "estimate"... and most estimate either too high.. or too low...especially if they don't take your HR into account.
“Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear.
Much of this seems like common knowledge, but it's worth a repeat I think...
Wear a HRM
Warm up your whole body for 5+ minutes
Break your workout into multiple parts
Less rest between sets
It's not uncommon to go to bed thinking, "Darn, I should have run today." It's not common to go to bed thinking, "I shouldn't have run today."
