Long, slow burn in the fitness center

Still in Seoul.  At the JW Marriott (the fitness center with the mechanical horsey, but no rower)

I had time to kill this morning.  I woke up around 5:30AM, and I didn’t need to leave for the airport until 10:30.  So, I did some email, did a crossword, surfed the web, and around 7, I decided to head to the gym.

The plan for today

  • 4 x 20′ endurance
  • 20 minutes max incline treadmill
  • 20 minutes flat incline treadmill jog
  • 20 minutes elliptical (intervals, level 15)
  • 20 minutes stationary bike (rolling hills, level 8)

Holy hell it was boring.

Now I’m at the airport waiting to get on my flight.  I’m connecting through Hong Kong and getting back to Boston around 10:30PM.  Ugh.

I just sync’ed up StravastiX.  I’m certainly not putting a challenging load on myself these days.  I think I need to ramp up the volume AND the intensity if I want to make much progress.  It says that my fitness is improving, but I think it is deceived by the fact that I only started logging after my return from my knee operation.  It had my fitness starting from zero, but it was actually pretty good prior to my layoff.  I bet that I would be hovering versus slowing improving if that was the case.  I think I need to get a good 6 months of activity recorded before I really trust the trends.

It’s almost time to restart the marathon plan.   Except this time on the water!
