SOS - Sunday Only Speak

Being a Christian is like being a pumpkin. God lifts you up, takes you in, and washes all the dirt off of you.

He opens you up, touches you deep inside and scoops out all the yucky stuff - including the seeds of doubt, hate, greed, etc.

Then He carves you a new smiling face and puts His light inside you to shine for all the world to see.

I got this from another pumpkin. Now, it is your turn to pass it to a pumpkin.

Happy Fall!

Fall is a great time of year. Me and my wife like to do what the Germans call wandering. Nice long walks in the woods. They have some really great trails over here. Lots of markers and map billboards so it's easy to get around.

Hello again. :) Beautiful fall tree. :)

Okay, the key to using a HR monitor is that you really need to know your true Maximum HR. If you use a formula (like 220-age) it can be off by as much as 20 beats (too low or too high).

A great book, if you can borrow it from the Library, or buy, is "Heart Monitor Training for the Compleat Idiot" by John Parker. It explains a lot of things about HR training, including the fact that at the beginning, you may have to walk a bit to stay in the right zones.

If you are healthy, with no history of heart problems, you can try a couple of tests to determine your true max HR. You can read about them on the following sites:
Sports Coach
How to Determine Maximum Heart Rate

Figuring out your resting heart rate is much easier. Just put on your heart rate monitor first thing in the morning, before you get out of bed (have it lying next to your bed so it's there when you wake up), then lie back and be quiet for a bit. The lowest number that registers is your resting HR.

The first site mentioned above has a lot of useful information on HR training if you surf through the site. :)

Fall is a GREAT season! (however short ours is...I stilllove it!)
