Jan 26, 2011

Coach's challenges:
60 minutes of cardio maintaining a heart rate of 160-180
Target quads, abductors, and core

Weight: 133 lbs

Todays goals:
Complete 60 minutes on my elliptical and maintain a heart rate of 170 or higher
Plank for one minute
End with the three main yoga moves that are good for keeping hips and thigh muscles loose

Setting: Cross-training
Time: 60 minutes
Distance: 5.09
Calories: 502.3
Strides: 6926
Heart rate: 171 and I maintained that for the entire workout :)

I had to keep it a bit quick today (didn't do as much muscular). I was on a tight schedule because I went to Toronto to see the taping of George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight & pitch the idea of having him interview the Because We Can team at the end of April, but I digress. The workout went well. I was happy about being able to maintain my target heart rate of 170 though I definitely pushed my absolute hardest to do so.


  1. Great job Gawa!!! I might need to bring my bike to Waterloo in the spring and we can train together!

  2. Absolutely!! That would be great :) It will have to be before May - I'll be heading down to Cali to train for the month.
