Heart Rate Interval Training – #Mamavation Monday

Heart Interval TrainingMy coach has me trying something a little different now for my training. There is a cycle that I’m suppose to follow. Week 1 – moderate, Week 2 heavy, Week 3 – light and Week 4 deload, a much lighter week with a lot of mobility work. I’m not sure if I have those weeks right. I’m going to ask him again just to be sure. Either way I need to make sure I follow it. That’s a good way to progress.

Update – “Hard, Easy, Super Hard, Deload” – This week is going to be my “Easy” week.

He told me about this handy little app from Azumio. It’s a heart rate app and I’m suppose to do this for a week in the morning after I wake up so I can get an average baseline.

Day 1: 66 bpm Day 2: 75 bpm Day 3: 77 bpm Day 4: 62 bpm  as you can see it’s been a rough week and my stress level has been obviously high. What this is suppose to tell me is that once I have an average I will know just how much I can do that day. For example today would have been good day to go hard but if I wake up and it’s 77 then I would want to back off that day. I can’t wait to test all this out.
