Re: The Shed 'O Pain
I spent 3.5 hrs in the zero-gravity treadmill today doing an initial checkout of the new pneumatic subject loading device (PSLD). Most of the time was spent chasing the gremlins living in the force plate under the treadmill belt. We eventually ran a protocal of 3mi/hr, 6mi/hr and 9mi/hr each for 60 seconds on the moon (1/6th gravity), on Mars (3/8ths gravity) and on Earth (1 times gravity). One 'G' feels like running with a 150 lb backpack on because it is.
Run 63min. (treadmill) @ 6.6mi/hr (about 7mi), 0.5% incline
I actually started to feel pretty good by the time I hit one hour. My respiration rate dropped and my heart rate started to come down. I was starting to get into the zone. I haven't felt that in a long time.
Swim 63min. continuous
It was very slow, but I didn't have much strength left by this point. Tried to focus on my form making long, smooth strokes with no bubbles. My calves started cramping 45 minutes into the swim.
I'm really tired!
