HRV: 97 (+4/green)
10min Z1 Airdyne
2min @ 85%
rest until HR returns to <130 bpm="bpm" p="p">
Notes: Stayed up later than usual for new year's. Got to bed around 1 because the fireworks kept going off. I slept very well though, and undisturbed until I woke up at 7:15am. Felt good this morning with a sense of vigor.
Warmed up for 5min on the airdyne, then hit a little bit of mobility. Went back to the airdyne where I did two 2min intervals at increasing intensity to get the heart rate up and the legs warm. Quads were burning during the last few intervals. I kept reminding myself though, "The burning is just the muscles telling you that they are working. They are cheering for you to keep it up." Max heart rate today was 176. Held cals for almost all sets over 40. Took less than 60sec to get heart rate back down to resting.130>
