Still feeling rather coldy, I was back at work on Friday, working a day shift (0700 – 1900.)

Towards the end of the shift it was time for my circuits and I completed 16 laps or 4 miles.

Saturday was much the same but with a few more laps (20 laps – 5 Miles).

Sunday, it was 4 miles but I did the walk wearing a heart rate monitor (HRM). My super-duper Garmin watch is able to connect to various bits of kit and my old HRM chest strap, from my old Garmin Forerunner 305, connected – nice!

Post walk, I checked Endomondo and was presented with a data-rich graph of my activity.

The data to hand are…

  • Speed
  • Altitude
  • Cadence  and
  • Heart Rate

The first two are pretty self-explanatory.

Cadence in the number of cycles per minute, say from the right leg contacting the ground until the next time this happens. It’s the number of steps divided by 2.

The heart rate is in beats per minute and gives a good indication of how hard you are working. I’ll write a blog, soon, about heart rate and training zones – but not today.

Anyway, with these three walks, I managed to push the weekly total to nearly 30 miles. Considering that I was near death (man-flu?) earlier in the week, I think that I did alright.
