So, my flight to Boston last night was cancelled because of winter storm “Niko”. A huge Nor’easter that is pummeling the northeastern United States.
(side note: One of the main online weather services in the US, weather.com has taken to naming major storms, not just hurricanes. I like it. It solves a referencing problem and it’s fun to talk about storms by name…back to the narrative)
So, I am stuck in San Diego until my rescheduled depart, tonight around 9pm. I had a conference call at 6am, so I was unable to go to Crossfit Del Mar today. I was relegated to using the hotel fitness center.
I decided to just do 60 minutes of aerobic maintenance.
- 30 minutes treadmill (15% grade, 3.1mph…slowed to 3.0 at about 20′, and then 2.9 at 26′ to keep HR below 145)
- 30 minutes on the elliptical (rolling hills, level 14 of 25), HR cap < 155.
The treadmill felt like hard work, the elliptical felt easier, but my HR was a bit higher.
Tomorrow: I arrive (hopefully) around 8 am. I plan to work from home and get in a marathon plan workout.
