The HR Game

I got bored on the spin bike today and tried a new game (patent pending). It's called keep your HR above your weight for an hour.

It's not as fun as it sounds but it does motivate one to lose those winter lbs.

Jan 1 is just around the corner. I need to buckle down and get back on a training schedule or I'm going to be in trouble. Normally this time of the year, I'm in full backcountry mode a few days a week. But with the lack of snow, it's been hard to want to get out of bed at 4:30AM.

We got the green light from the Executive Team at work to keep moving forward with the cycling team. The 2010 team kits are in the final stages. I'll be riding in Omniture gear again but this time we'll have some red sprinkled in. It's going to look good.

That sounds like a horrible game! My HR would have to be over 180! Im going to get on my trainer now.

Yeah, that game works a lot better if you're a skinny ass like Rick or Tony. My HR is generally on the hummingbird side so it's fast but not sure I can do an hour over 175. OUCH

That game wouldn't work for me as my winter weight is at or > my max HR.

That's exciting news that the exec team is on board with the team. Can't wait to see the new kit design. Curious to know whether it will be straight up Adobe or Adobe Co.

Maybe I'll give that a try tonight. An hour at 145 sounds pretty relaxing.
