This was a tough week for me. I’m not quite sure what the deal is, but I could NOT get my heart rate high enough to get into the orange zone for the recommended time. I’m such a numbers person when it comes to the gym and I got so frustrated with myself.

Took an extra rest day

Today hit me hard. I tried mixing inclines in with my speed on the treadmill, tried power walking at a 12-15% incline…nothing I did seemed to get my heart rate up. Less time in the blue zone was good, but I NEED THAT ORANGE!
Saturday & Sunday, May 2-3
I decided to take the weekend off and collect myself.
I know not every workout is going to be a good one. They often times push us harder to get to where we want or need to be. This coming week will be a short workout week for me again as the hubby and I are going away for a long weekend to celebrate our 6th wedding anniversary :) BUT…I do have plans to take an OTF class at one of their studios near our hotel, and I look forward to it!
How do you pick yourself up after a not so great workout?
Until next time,
