In the Red

I’ve been checking my HRV almost every morning with ithlete for over 3 weeks. This is the first day I’ve had a red number and the first day my resting heart rate has been above 48; it was 53 this morning.

Today was already planned as a recovery day. My low back was feeling a little tight the rest of the day yesterday after pulling the deadlifts. Don’t really notice it this morning.

Warmed up with an easy 1,000m on the Ski Erg (4:57.5).

Coffee Squats

Front Squats

  • 10×45#
  • 5×135#
  • 5×165#
  • 3×195#
  • 3×215#
  • 3×235#
  • 3×255#

Day 12 at the squat rack is in the books. Felt really solid. It’s hard not to keep adding weight and push it, but I’m going to keep it slow. No need to rush things and get hurt again.

Before lunch, I took the sled for a walk. Loaded 90# on for a 115# total and went 1.35 miles in 27:50. The pavement wasn’t nearly as bad as I remember it being last year or maybe I’m just that much fitter. It did start to hurt around 3/4 of a mile. Never stopped though.
