Burning off the excess.

Just like many other people up and down the country I ate far too much over the past few days and did far too little exercise. In total I put on half a stone which is quite an achievement in itself!. Now its time to do something about that.

Although my arm aches from playing 10-pin bowling on the Wii, it just wasn’t enough to help with the weight loss so after going for a windsurf here at Ynyslas and playing in the dunes with Morgan I hopped onto the Turbo Trainer for a quick workout.

I didn’t feel great to start with but after a 10 minute warm up decided to do the horrible intervals I tried the other day. The aim is 4 minutes easy at 100 Watts and then 1 min hard at 400 Watts. Last time my legs just died at around 45 seconds on the hard effort so I adjusted both the length of the hard effort to 45 seconds and the rest effort to 3:45. This time I managed to do the whole 1 minute on all seven reps at 400 Watts which I was pleased about. As you can see from the Heart Rate chart below it was pretty tough, but it isn’t supposed to be easy.
