24 Minutes of Work

As I sit here drinking my (shameless plug) Hammer Nutrition Recoverite, I’m pretty excited at how spent I feel after tonight’s workout on the Concept 2 Rowing Ergometer. You wouldn’t think that 24 minutes of work would do much, but broken into some intense intervals, it did the trick. The encouraging thing was that between work intervals my heart rate was coming down rather quickly–a nice sign that my fitness level is improving.

This evenings workout was three times through this interval workout:

1) 3 minutes work/3 minutes rest

2) 2 minutes work/2 minutes rest

3) 1:30 work/1:30 rest

4) 1 minute work/1 minute rest

5) 30 seconds work/30 seconds rest

Following my Recoverite, I’ll stretch, do some work on the foam roller and finally have a light dinner. I have to recover well so that I can run in the morning!
