TRX Force: Week 6 – Day 2

28 May

Lately I’ve been feeling good working out with the TRX and feel I can add more to my plate. Today I did my hour TRX workout, drank a protein shake then out the door to the local park to try out my heart rate monitor. I did this without planning out the day and just went with how I felt. When your body tells you that it’s OK to push harder, run faster and run longer, without thinking about it, you’ve reached your next fitness level. It’s a free pass to test your personal record. Many people will go ahead and test their limits without properly preparing to train and that’s how injuries arise.

I’ve tried many free running apps for my android and many lose satellite signal or are not very accurate. Not to mention that 1% when they do actually work, you’re left with a drained cell phone. It was nice to bypass all those issues with my new Garmin Forerunner 305. All I really care about is time and distance when I go on a run but having heart rate data, calories burned and a map of your run is a bonus. Today concluded with a 3.21 mile run which was my fist run of the year. Not bad for not having any training runs under my belt this year. It speaks volumes of what type of program the TRX Suspension Trainer really is. I new all those one-legged squats and lunges were not done in vain. Helps you run without ever going on a run!
