I’m happy. I was able to keep my heart rate going at a good clip without over exerting myself. I did hit a maximum heart rate of 164, but only for about 1 minute and 50 seconds, which isn’t that big a deal. I certainly didn’t feel any negative effects from red lining for that long. And I managed a 4 minute and 30 second half mile – up hill!
So, yes, I am content.
