  1. Health & Wellness

    Jun 18, 2008

    Kind of an interesting day today. It was Bean's Health & Wellness Fair in the returns department where employees have 3 hours paid time midday to walk around various vendor displays on health related topics. I got some ideas on how to further diversify my workouts so the routines don't get stale. I got a hands on demonstration from Jeff Witkavitch, an instructor at Quest Center in Portland about To Shin Do. I also got helpful backpacking tips from Bean staff and got to talk to a representative of the Maine Appalachian Trail Club about an upcoming caching event in Eustis. I'm thinking about pursuing cross country skiing come winter as well. This was a fantastic opportunity to learn about other healthful avenues I could take. I commend L. L. Bean for putting on such an event for their employees.

    After that it was into the fitness room where I was the only person in there for an hour and a half as everyone was at the fair. Today I burned 693 cals , burning 50% of those calories in fats. Averaged 136 bpm and maxed 159. I spent 7 mins 30 sec below, 1 hour 10 mins in the zone, and 6 mins above the zone. I made it a point today to add more weight to the strength training as well since I was getting pretty comfortable with the previous settings.
