We’re going to be experimenting with once a week easy aerobic work. This kind of work has been found to improve resting heart rate, sleep, and cardiac function. This should be easy–you should feel better at the end of the workout than at the beginning. If you are really suffering at the end, you did it wrong. I know it feels strange to not push the boundaries, but this work can be incredibly beneficial if you do it right. It is better if you go too easy than if you go too hard.
