So last night I went to the gym. On a friday night.
I was really proud of myself for making the effort before going out with friends, and I loved the fact that I was pretty much the only person there. However, I feel like I’ve already hit a wall at the 5km mark, and when you consider than the marathon is approx 40km, I still have a very long way to go.
At one point my heart rate reached 200. I didn’t feel particularly bad, just like I needed to walk for a second.
According to this chart, this is a dangerous level.
