I severely lack self control.
|pushing mowing .95 miles in 35:35 burned 148 calories|
I thought I had the HRM turned on when I started, but I noticed after maybe 10 minutes that it wasn't working, so I finally got it on. By the time I was done mowing, it showed 136 calories burned, but of course that doesn't go into account the calories burned prior to get it working right. The Garmin showed 148 calories burned in 35:35. It was turned on right away when I started mowing. Obviously I burned more calories than what the HRM said, but it seems to me that the Garmin is just slightly less than accurate. I'm going to try to remember to wear the HRM next time I run just to see how it compares that way.
I found 5 more races to add to my race card yesterday. I'm pretty excited about more opportunities to compete, yet I'm also pretty nervous and wondering what I got myself into. :/
I have 3 miles scheduled today but I may be putting it off until tomorrow. We shall see.
