Running stuffed with low heart rate (& new 500 workout record!)

Today’s schedule

  • 1 hour easy, heart rate under 130
  • Bodyweight 500 workout

Today I did the 1 hour run almost immediately after dinner – went out only half an hour after. It was because I wasn’t at work today, so I needed to do both the running and the 500 workout after the kids had went to bed.. For us grown-ups to be able to have our evening (meaning watching a great series and eating a healthy mix of nuts (non salted, of course – what else?) and a nib of dark chocolate ;)) it meant me doing it all quite early.

I’ll tell you this – running with a stuffed belly was uncomfortable enough – but also keeping the heart rate below 130, which by the way was my goal, was nearly impossible.. I gave that up quite early and just tried to have one as recovering and refreshing run as possible – which I think I succeeded with. The degrees outside was just below zero and felt cool in a very refreshing and nice way.

Afterwards I took a cup of coffee and rushed into the 500 workout. At first I didn’t feel like it, mainly because I just came from a run, but I persisted. And once getting started, as always, I enjoyed it –  I even had a new record of 22:26! Of that I am very satisfied 😀
