PACE-ing again

I admit it here and now. I am exercising to the Al Sear’s PACE program again. I finally gave in and ordered the E book and so far I have no regrets. I thought $27.95 was rather steep for an E Book but I weighed the options and felt I came up the winner.

Weight loss aside, my stamina has increased noticeably. I can jump rope as fast as possible and really not feel worn out and it takes pretty extreme exercise to feel like I am gasping for oxygen which is the point at which you know you have exerted enough. I only “exert” for 1 minute or less but on the Schwinn Airdyne I can get the level up to 10 for one minute and that has never been possible before.

The other noticeable improvement is that my heart beat can quite quickly go from 173 to 138 and down from there. While I am exercising I never get below 100 beats per minute but it always drops 30 or more points in a short period of time. I feel much better about the 173 as Sears feels going above the recommended heart rate is only possible if a person is in good physical shape. I am becoming addicted to the “oxygen deficit” that occurs when you are pushing your physical limits and I love getting all the exercise I need in 20 minutes or less.

Let’s see, I said I wasn’t going to post on this site anymore and I said PACE didn’t work for me. That just shows you can never say “never” and it is a woman’s perogative to change her mind. I happen to think that my infrared sauna business is a big part of my improvements as I use the Sunlight sauna at least three times a week but whatever the cause the effect is I am much more robust than I was 6 months ago.
