What happened to spring?

What happened to spring?

It looks like we pretty much skipped right over the spring season here in Orlando. Yesterday afternoon I thought about going for a bike ride for my cardio, but when I stepped outside the heat was absolutely unbearable. Turns out we hit a record high of 95 degrees (F), with a “feels like” temperature of something like 150 billion. The humidity was off the charts, too. Sometimes I can handle that kind of heat, but I just was not in the mood for it yesterday. So I retreated like a coward to the cool confines of my home gym and did 45-minutes of medium-high intensity cardio. I may have wussed out on braving the heat, but at least I didn’t back down on the effort: 45 minutes with an average heart rate of 176 BPM and a maximum HR of 193 BPM.

I’m really enjoying my week off from weight training, but I’m more than ready to get back in the gym and hit it hard. Whenever I take a week off from training and I read about other people’s workouts on the JSF Forums or Facebook, it always stokes my desire to train. In fact, I really feel like lifting right now, but I’m going to hold off and finish up my week off. I have a feeling Monday’s workout is going to be awesome.

It’s actually pretty cool outside right now, so I think I’m going to go for a bike ride this morning before work. I really enjoyed Tuesday’s combined bike ride and photography excursion to the lake, so I might do something like that again.

Happy Friday!
