I am a data dork. I love tracking every piece of data and that includes data on my fitness. One data point I have tracked over the past year is my heart rate. A year ago (60 pounds ago) I had a resting heart rate of 69. After starting my running program in August I have dropped my resting heart rate to 60. My average over the past 90 days is 58. I am very happy with this progress as clearly I am in better shape and much healthier. It is valuable to track your heart rate during workouts, resting and at different times of the day. I get more out of tracking my beats than I do my pounds.
I hit the gym track today and ran 5 miles with a 9:29 average. Felt good to get off the treadmill and back on to concrete.
