In the past week
I think hills are your best option, or off-roading. If you’re on a trail that is right for your experience level and it has hills, you should get a good workout without having to force yourself to go faster.
My heart rate is going up and down with the heat outside, according to my fitbit. Is it the device or my actual heart reacting to the heat? Is that normal? Should I be worried? It’s changing by about 5 beats per minute when it’s my resting rate.
I’m pretty sure you do sweat when you swim. I remember a long time ago when I was having lessons, we were encouraged to hydrate for that reason. We were in an outdoor pool. Not sure if that played a role.
My sister always gets sunburn-like blotches when she swims in pools with a ton of chlorine. Shower off as soon as you get out of the pool if you can. It makes a difference. Don’t go at the hottest times of the sun, too.
drink more water, track your calories, and check if your workout needs an upgrade. Don’t panic! You might even be doing everything right, you’re just building lean muscle and burning fat at the same time so it’s not registering on the scale. Don’t forget that your scale can’t tell the diffrence between your body fat, great muscle, water w…[Read more]
Oh you shouldn’t ever feel goofy about asking questions here. THat’s what this place is for. I’ve asked some doozies here, too, but everyone is pretty nice here. Plus, it feels good when you know the answer to a question, so even if it seems like a simple question that you’re asking, it makes it easier for the rest of us to feel smart by helping haha!
That’s true. If that’s the deciding line. But for most people, they’re not eating the right number of calories or aren’t riding the line. Food is usually the thing. I do agree though if you’re already eating pretty much perfectly, then it’s exercise that will tip things in your favor.
Speed and stride length. Jogging is what happens when you’re going just fast enough that you can’t walk anymore so you need more of a hop to your step. Running happens when you go faster than that.
They do look attractive don’t they? I’ve been curious about those, too. I’ve had one in my amazon cart probably half a dozen times then took it back out again. I see so many mixed reviews that I can’t decide. I hope you learn something good about them!
Some people run every day. I’ve heard it’s good to take some time off to give the body the chance to recover. You could do 2 days on, 2 days off. Use the other days for strength training and yoga.
Magnesium is something a lot of us are low in a lot. Our diets could get enough of it, bu don’t typically. It’s in and out of the body in around 12 hours so it needs to be replenished a lot. It has a lot of calming properties and balancing, so if you’re low, it can help.
Thank you! I’m going to give it a try. I’ll clean it all up, test it out and grease everything but the brakes haha. If everything seems to be in order, I’ll just stick to it. If things just don’t seem right, I’ll take it in for a pro to do it. I hope this is enough and I save a fortune this year!
It’s still early in the season. Check back with sports stores and see if they’re getting anything in. You can even likely ask them to email you or text you when they get product in. Don’t give up on the whole year yet!
