8 Weeks from Bataan - Monday

Duration = 48:08
Distance = 2.65
Calories = 307
Max HR = 136
Avg HR = 124
Max Cadence = 76
Avg Cadence = 68

Monday: short session
Equipment: Boots, tights, jeans, UA Cold Gear, LS t-shirt, balaclava, gloves & backpack (26.5 lbs)

Conditions; 32F, light wind, cloudy

Warm-up: Walk to local park, ~5:00
Main: 30:00 walk with HR in 125-135 range (that was the plan, actually 38:00)
Cool-down: Walk home from park, ~5:00

The plan was to add another 4 pounds to the pack to bring it up to 25. When I weighed it, I got 26.5. Since I added 2 2-pound ankle weights to pocket and I got 21 pounds last week, I thought that would do it. I'm going to go with the vagaries of the scale I used and leave it as it is.

Got going early enough to walk outside today. Other than some patches of ice, the walk went well. The hardest thing I had was keeping my heart rate from falling below my target range. This is reflected in my average. Since I was feeling good, I decided to see how long my "standard" loop of the park would take. I think this will be good for the short sessions through the March. I plan to go to 45 minutes as my target for them next month. I figure one lap outside is close enough. As I will continue to increase weight, I don't expect this to get much faster.
