    Add on to yesterday's (6/18) reported spin class: Miscellaneous rowing and boat-carrying while helping with learn-to-row class.

    Today (6/19), 7k-ish steady state row in the AM, more learn-to-row class rowing/boat-carrying tonight.

    I'm boring, but not at all bored. ;)

    Your stuff looks downright exciting compared to my indoor rowing and Assault Bike nearly every day!

    Curious about what your workout exercises were for your Tabata workout. Very tough stuff. I've done it with burpees and rep count variance was noticeable comparing first round to eighth round.

    Yeah Tabatas are no joke. When I do them, all I can do is collapse at the end expecting my heart to burst out of my chest...

    Wanted to push a bit today. I try to push it twice a week when I'm feeling up to it. There's a belief among rowers (and runners) that you should do fast intervals and longer intervals once a week each, provided that you're doing enough "mileage" -- roughly an 80/20 split between easy and hard.

    Well, I haven't pushed hard on the rower in a while. Did 2 sets of 5 minutes harder @ 28 SPM/2:03 pace (that's per 500m). After that, hopped on the Air Dyne and did 4 more 5 minute sets hard with 5 minutes of active recovery after each -- tried to keep those all over 250 Watts. Most were 260 plus.

    Started the day with intervals of 20 pushups, 15 or so either weighted squats or weighted bridges, and 10 or so dumbell presses each arm along with my thoracic exercises X 5 sets.

    Swimming for fun tonight.

    Oh, after four years no HRM, I ordered one today. Should be fun doing HR based workouts again. I need something to keep me interested. Either I get pretty serious about racing in the Winter soon or I won't be able to race this Winter in the Indoor meets. Phoenix used to have some serious competitors for indoor in my age range, including one OTW that was a former Olympic Silver medalist. Was hoping to race him this next year (and get crushed but it would be fun).

    I went with a really cheap one that's Bluetooth -- CooSpo. Around $30 because I wanted to get my wife one too. I've bought many of them in the past and I've had trouble with every one of them after a while. The ones that work best are the old Polars that weren't Bluetooth. Since they've gone Bluetooth, no one really has figured out how to make them perfect, IMO, so I just went cheap. Though it had as good of ratings on Amazon as all the other more expensive ones.

    If this one doesn't work well, I'll likely just go back "old school" and get an old wrist one that has the strap programmed to it. Those were so reliable and lasted for years. I haven't had a Bluetooth one yet last more than a month or two of heavy use.

    If it's Thursday, there was a spin class in the AM. If it's mid-June, there was helping with learn-to-row class in the evening.

    FWIW, my Garmin Vivoactive 3 comes close enough on spm for C2 workouts (not perfect: spitball), correlated time-wise with HR, to be useful. Need the Ant+ chest belt tor sure, though. I don't do Ergdata or the like, given my low commitment to machine rowing, so can't speak to integration for serious machine rowers like yourself. Fun toy, in general; decent guide for HR-based conditioning. As in all things, YMMV. ;)
