Quick Schedule (with HR Targets!)

Busy day is busy...much to say, but here's the quick gym schedule of the week (reduced b/c of something I learned this weekend in cycle cert, more later...)

Monday: Running Group (heart rate max at 75%)
Tuesday: Cycle (heart rate between 65-80% 95% of time, then a push to 85% at the end)
Wednesday: Running Group (heart rate max at 75%)
Thursday: AM Weights
Friday: Off -- yaay birthday!
Saturday: Off
Sunday: 5k

Always Over Plan

When I give my schedule for workouts of the week, I'm not entirely honest.

I'm well intentioned, but I also know that there's a snowball's chance in hell that I'm going to make all of them. This week, the big loser was Tuesday morning's workout.

This week is, however, shaping up better than THUNDERSNOW week:

Monday: running group
Tuesday: Cycle
Wednesday: running group
Thursday: AM weights
Friday: AM cycle
Saturday: off
Sunday: Spin Cert (though, we're doing 2 workouts, so can this count as my missed Tuesday morning?)

Along the line of gadgets, I got a heart rate monitor from Ragnar for captaining, so I need to get it out and actually use it.

Any recommendations on when/how to best use one for training? I know it's important in cycle (just like spd shoes!) but it's one of those things I just hadn't invested in (...just like spd shoes!)
