Today features work from 4am-2pm, with a stop at Restaurant Depot to tie up some loose ends. My right Quad is also still a little pissed off, so I need to be more mindful of that from here on out. Active rest day it is! I took a Blood Pressure reading at WalMart on Saturday I came out with a slight chance of Prehypertension, the stage before high blood pressure. Hopefully this was bloated by a lack of sleep from a ClOpen, but it’s still worth looking after more regularly. As a result, I need to continue to try to keep my stress level down, as well as reduce my sodium intake.

Workout Details: Active rest this morning, bringing along my new Pulse Oximeter from NONIN to get some insight on how low I’m driving my blood-oxygen saturation. I was able to achieve the target of 80% saturation after some serious breath holds during my walk.

Heart Rate Zones –
Again very interesting to not see any aerobic or anaerobic zones despite constant breath holding
Dipping down that low of an SPO2 rating is tough. You have to work your way down over a minute or two with mostly Breath Holds, and your percentage seems to recover quickly when Breath is restored. But you can bounce down deeper if you keep at it, although this is really as low as Patrick McKeown recommends.

D3 is definitely the most important bunker on the field, aside from any bunker that stops someone from getting there. You can tear apart their entire backfield from there!

What am I going to learn about myself at the Combine? Can I match up to the guys next to me? Am I going to get blown off the field?
Had a lot of self doubt about what I’m doing this morning, which is good. Letting the brain exercise its natural negative skew.
What I know for sure is that in January I will be in the best mental, physical, and emotional shape of my life. I will be as ready as I can be, and that’s the best thing I can do.
