My heart beats me senselessly

I forgot to share something amazing with you!

Last night at training, I was on the treadmill and my heart rate got up to 184. I got off the treadmill, wiped my forehead, took a sip of water, and walked about 20 steps across the gym. By then, my heart rate was back down to 114.

That, is incredible recovery time... especially for me!! When I first did the elliptical thingy at training, My heart rate got up to 187, and I had to sit down for almost 5 minutes to get my heart rate back down.

It is unbelievable how the body adapts. Crazy, I say! But truly awesome :-)
