I have been home since Tuesday recovering from some oral surgery. I am finally feeling like getting up and moving around. I am still pretty swollen but I have to make my way in to public today.
Tegan and I are using Michelle Stanweis from Performance High for our marathon training program. I have been getting injured every time I train for a race. So, this training plan is incorporating running, cycling, and swimming. I can't wait to start next week. Back to the point... The training plan is based on heart rate training zones. I have been trying to figure out what mine are.
Zone 1 (fat burning zone): 127-140
Zone 2 (aerobic): 140-153
Zone 3 (steady state): 153-166
Zone 4 (anaerobic): 166-180
Zone 5 (maximal): 180-193
On Monday, I am going to do a lactate threshold test . It will be nice to have actual numbers that are based on me to work on. At least for running. I am hoping to get on the bike trainer tonight and work my muscles a bit. But, it all depends on how I feel after the dentist today. My friend Emily may be in town today. I hope I get to see her!
