Reflections on the Grind

thoughts on training and life of an introvert

Weight and heart rate

leave a comment »

Been a while since my last post. There’s not much new. Things are going quite well. I’m still running of course. Ran everyday so far in January. Same old routes, same old time (morning). One hour per session, more or less. Sometimes it’s nice to just follow the routine and not think about it too much.

Just looked at my medical checkup records. It’s kind of interesting to compare the results a year apart:

Sep 2008: blood pressure 120/70, weight 63 kg, resting heart rate 78 beats per minute.

Sep 2009: 110/70, 57 kg, 54 bpm.

Many people have told me I’ve become too thin lately, but I disagree. I think I’m at a good weight. Feeling healthy. A low heart rate at rest usually means a strong heart, one that pumps more blood per beat. So, not bad I think.

The weather has been unusual lately. It’s uncharacteristically warm here in Bangkok, whereas many people (my sister and my Dailymile friends) are experiencing extremely cold weather. Hope things get better in those places soon.
