my resting heart rate is between 50-53 bpm and besides some light cooking and cleaning, i spent most of the day keeping my heart rate low and rested. tomorrow i find out if my shins have healed enough so that i can start putting some mileage on these sneakers and run again.

  1. Oh dear, do I dare find out what my resting heart rate is? It’s probably 150-250 bpm – HA!

    Awesome photograph, Val. It truly looks like a Nike ad. I really love the lighting in this shot.

    Hope your shins have healed. Enjoy the rest of your weekend, girl!

      hahah. it is not, stop it. i’m all about numbers because i’m trying to lose weight. i have to measure this, weigh that, time this, figure of the distance for that…and i wear my heart rate monitor and i’m obsessive about knowing and paying attention to these things. it’s a curse and i can’t stop.

      if my shins have not healed, i will post of picture of me crying, maybe using the same lighting as above. that is all.

      thank you.

      awh, cg. it’s not a win or lose thingy, just fact. truth be told, i didn’t know what a freaking resting heart rate was.

      the nurse at my job told me i had a great resting heart rate and i had no idea what she meant, um i don’t go to the doctor at all unless i’m near death sick, and shrugged it off with a so, how’s my sugar?

      i can never or feel or find my heart beat – although my peeps can – because it’s very faint. i always thought i didn’t have a heart and was running on batteries.

      it’s hardly detectable and i assumed it was weak. i still can’t find it, so if you ever walk into a room and i’m rubbing all over my chest, i’m just looking for my heart beat.

      i’m obsessed with my HRM. heck, i’m wearing it now, but i just got back from the gym.

      well i ran on sunday, just a bit, ran yesterday, for just a sec and i’m okay. i won’t push it. i rather run a little than not to be able to run at all. it felt great, when i was at my max.

      i can’t deal with SS anymore. that’s some pain.

      thanks, girlfriend! i still want to come down to golf, okay!

Speak on it!
