This week has started to get busy with running and more Electric Muscle Stimulation Exercise.
My runs for the next while will be done at MAF pace. I am finding that this is hard to do when my heart rate seems to be comfortable above the suggested number of 125 bpm. So I end up having to walk for short periods to get my heart rate down. I trust in this method though, and will stick with it for now. Actually this will start to show improvement fairly fast for a couple of reasons. any running I do will increase my fitness. And running at this pace will reduce fatigue and the chance of injury, so I should be able to be more consistent.
The EMS exercise has been going well. I have lost 5 kgs. and can see some muscle tone. I will be reducing the number of sessions per week down to 1 or less as my running mileage increases. But during the off-season I will be doing this exercise again.
