For exercise today I did my four mile run outside! I woke up with the best attitude ever about my run, because I knew it was going to be nice enough outside to enjoy my run.... that does not happen very often during this time of the year in Wisconsin. Four miles flew by AND with the use of my heart rate monitor that I get to use for the semester through my Human Performance program, I was able to keep myself close to my goal pace of 9:30 the whole time! I normally run way to fast for my running level and in turn burn out and get tired very easily. Over the past couple workouts I have noticed that my ideal heart rate to keep me at my goal pace is between 160-180 bpm. Do you use a heart rate monitor? What brand do you have? On top of my run I was supposed to have an intramural basketball game, but it got cancelled due to the other team forfeiting. When I heard this I was actually relieved because our game is at 10:15pm... WAY too late for this kid!! Last week I could not get to bed until 1:30am because my body was so alert after playing.
After finishing all my work at the office and my classes I headed to the UW-L men's basketball game, since the girls were on the road tonight. This is one of the things that I love about doing my Masters here where I did my undergrad because I am still able to support the basketball program that I used to play for. Both the men's and women's teams have been doing great this year! The women have almost clenched the 2nd spot in the conference and the boys are in line to be #3 in the conference. Woo, go Eagles!
Where did you go for undergrad/grad school?
