55 minute elliptical workout
Friday, March 16, 2012      0 comments

Another run on the elliptical, not too intense though... Sort of feeling the restricted caloric intake... The performance is not too high, only moderate. Tomorrow is a rest day, in anticipation of Sunday's mountain bike ride. I look forward to i... Read more

Today's workout was running on the elliptical. I was not too energetic, given that I am controlling the caloric intake pretty accurately. Still, I burned a lot of calories, and I am hopefully losing the fat. Everyday 50g of fat, I hope. That is ... Read more

I did another HIIT today on the elliptical. My heart rate ranged from 130 to 160, and back to 130 again. I did 6 such cycles in 55 mins. It was not a terribly great workout, but it was not a miserable one either. The problem I had today was I lo... Read more

Today is a rest day with basic strength training... It does not take too long, so it is an "active" rest day if I do the basic strength training. My cardio days tend to be far more tiring. So today I just did some push-ups, lunges and leg raises... Read more
45km mountain bike ride

I am just back from a 45km (28 mile) mountain bike ride. I rode well, and felt well too. It was mostly a flat trail ride, with climbs and descents that were mostly quite mild. We had some steep climbs and descents, and although I walked some of ... Read more

Today is rest day, preparing for tomorrow's ride in the mountains. I have to work on my descent, now that my climb is getting better and better (but not perfect, yet!). Last week some slopes were just horrendous, I backed off while descending - ... Read more

But again half of it was pretty exhausting... I guess the calories cut is making a difference. Hopefully burning some fat too.... Read more

But it was not as fulfilling as the one two days ago. It seems that when I eat a bit too much, I tend to perform too well, and when I restrict the calories, immediately my performance drops. Oh well... I am trying get rid of some fat, not becomi... Read more

Today I had absolutely no time to exercise, although I wanted to. So I took it off. It is not all that bad, because first, I would like to concentrate on my eating than on my exercise nowadays, and next, I did a very intense HIIT yesterday, so i... Read more

Yes, on an elliptical, and not on a threadmill... This is my new exercise. Today in the last 10 minutes, my heart rate was around 170bpm, and did not feel any discomfort. Mind you, I am 42, and thus my max. heart rate (MHR) is 178bpm. So that me... Read more

53 km in 4 hours!!!

Yes, I did 53 kms in 4 hours. My iphone's GPS went paused at some point, so unfortunately only a small part of the route was saved. We had incredible hills with a slope over 20%! I prefer to climb them, and I get scared when I am going down. The... Read more

Friday, March 02, 2012      0 comments

Today I pushed so hard that at some point I had to slow down, because I think my heart rate maxed out (was not wearing my heart rate monitor and strap). But I definitely felt it. I slowed down and the feeling went away. Anyway, it was a great w... Read more
