    5 mile run at race (half marathon) pace to bootcamp.

    Bootcamp - if I'd known how much running was involved I would only have done 3 on the way there

    What's PT? Can people add the time their workouts take out of interest? I'm sure some of these would take me 2 hours.

    50 Squats

    Probably going to do more core work this evening. Trading out my biking time for alternate muscle focused exercises this next month or two. One to two bike rides a week is enough to maintain.

    9.2k rowing the double, with a Big Ten champion rower in stroke. We went upstream to see the baby swans (there are still at least 5, and maybe all 6 of them - they mill around so much it's hard to count).

    On the way back, with me steering, we hit a d**m bridge abutment (oars, not boat, still lucky not to break stuff/flip/swim, wind may have contributed, but, as bow rower, definitively all my fault - ugh).

    So far today was just a 2.5 mile walk. Considering lifting later.

    I love to get outside. Today was an hour long bike ride along the creek that runs through the city. Riding 14.3km on a sunny day in June? One of my favourite things to do! A few very challenging hills made it a really rewarding experience.

    6/15/2019 - high school all-weather track - warmup walk/jog 1.0 mile. 0.50 mile faster run and 3:00 walking recovery for 4 rounds.

    Goal was to run the 0.50 mile rounds in 4:00 or less and I did. Fastest was round #2 at 7:32 and slowest was round #4 at 7:58. Started 5th round but quit at around 300 meters due to funny feel above right knee.

    PT is personal training.

    Aokoye - that's exciting. I likely know of quite a few of those folks there. Many of the NW OTW contingent are members of my Sub 7 Indoor club as well during the offseason (most are so serious they never take time off). I'm like one of the least serious members of that club. Especially large contingent of female rowers from my indoor club are from either WA or Idaho.

    Congrats on the degree! And can't wait to hear about your race. You've worked really hard preparing for it. I was so excited for my first indoor race, so doing yours on water would be incredibly exciting. Sounds like you're hooked already.

    Thanks Mike and @AnnPT77 for the congratulations on my graduation! It took a lot of energy (and a lot of tears) but I got through it. And yes, there probably will be people from your indoor club if they compete OTW in WA or ID. It'll be my second regatta of the season but the first in my novice 4+. We've gotten very little time to row together and knock on wood we'll get to go out in a 4 tomorrow morning (I suspect it'll be an issue of how many coxswains we have available). I'm also apparently going to be in a mixed 8, but no one knows what the line up of that will be.

    6/17/2019 - first day of summer and day one for chasing new fitness, health and wellness goals -

    At local park, walked 3.41 miles in 60 minutes, would have gone a little farther but stopped to give driving directions to a lost soul and forgot to pause my Garmin.

    Sunday

    Rest day today,
    Single mile ran to keep my streak going, plus a bit of walking to and fro, otherwise recovering from a night out

    Ugh I'm sorry you managed to not miss the bridge yesterday. One of the major challenges of bowing on the river that I row on is the bridges. I almost hit an abutment the Wednesday before last.

    Yesterday I rowed for an hour and a half (give or take) with my novice 4 lineup. Nothing exciting, we need more time together but oh well. I'm debating on lowering the rate of the start to a 30 from a 32 to take into account the person who just came out of LTR2 and is having a bit of trouble. I also need to have a chat with him that will essentially be, "none of us mind that you're here, we know that you're very new but also you are the reason we able to take out a novice 4 so we're all actually very glad that you're here". Hopefully we'll be able to take that line up out in a 4 tomorrow morning so we can work on starts and some 30 on 30 off.

    Today was my first morning of development sculling practice and it was good, though totally not the usual practice because everyone is getting ready for regionals so we had two shifts of rowing - three if you count the women's novice sweep practice. Most of the scullers went out at 6am, the novice women went out at 7am, and people in development who aren't sculling at regionals went out at 8am. It made for a much quieter boat house which was nice. Also a very quiet river.
    I rowed 9.8km in a quad sitting stroke seat (mainly because I'm not good at bowing, we had a guest rower who sat in three - who was great, and the single person who had being to dev practices before was in two seat). We saw a bald eagle and some goslings swimming with their caregivers.

    I'm feeling more and more comfortable sculling but felt a little self conscious/exposed because I've been rowing for the least amount of time. Really I need to do the, "I'm doing really well for having rowed less than a year", which the sculling coach told me in slightly different words.

    5 mile run

    5 mile run

    That's 4.9 miles more than any sane person should do. :D

    Seriously though. No idea what my workout is for today. I've done squats throughout the day, anytime I felt tired/nappy/sleepy. I've also done pushups here and there and have been relatively active. I'm just gonna treat today as a rest day.

    Good luck to everyone here in their work towards healthy!

    8k in a novice 8 with my novice 4 in stern so we could practice in our race line up. I was stroke which is doing really good things to both my confidence and my technique in terms of making sure I'm easy to follow. It's funny, 7 or 8 months ago I was the least confident in the boat and now I'm consistently stroke in novice boats (mind you - 7 or 8 months ago I was practicing with the intermediate and advanced men).

    Get moving monday.

    1hr PT - full body, TRX based, with some new, more advanced versions of some of the exercises. Single arm bicep curls were certainly interesting as were the pikes and double leg mountain climbers.

    Its deload week in 5/3/1 which meant seriously light working weight for squats and shoulder press. Also did [email protected] paused squats and [email protected] shoulder press.

    1 mile easy run down to gym for tabata. Note to self, you have little legs and if you try and keep up with the long legged man on other side of road, you will tank out.

    30 min tabata

    45 min barbell, new leg track still hurts.
