    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.
    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).

    What did you buy?

    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.

    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. ;)

    Another steady state 7K row on the water, in the double. And that's all for today. I think. :)

    30 minutes slow on the rower, slightly over 6K followed by 30 on the AirDyne Pro, very slow -- all recovery work.

    6/21/2019 - first day of summer

    #1 - weighted bar dips with 20kg KB start new round every 3:00 - 7 rounds of 5 reps and 1 round of 4 reps = 39 bar dips in 21:19.

    #2 = weighted alternating pull-ups and chin-ups with 24kg KB start new round every 3:00 - 8 rounds of 3 reps = 24 reps in 22:14 - started 8th round longer than 3:00 due to phone call - felt strong, wasn’t expecting 3 rep rounds for all 8 rounds but got them all! Hanging in there performance on latter rounds to tap chin to bar on 3rd rep made me proud, bottom line, a good pull-ups and chin-ups day.

    Hi, hope I can jump right into this thread. I'm hoping to gain some new workout ideas. Today was a double day. 45 minutes of Hot Yoga (a lot of twists and balance poses) followed by 35 minutes of kickboxing. This was my first ever kickboxing class and I have a feeling I will be sore tomorrow. I'm debating on if I should cancel my 8 am spin class or tough it out. Also got in a 1-mile walk with the kids before the storms came through.

    Novice 4+ at NW Masters Regionals - we got 2nd!

    The water was really flat which was nice and we had a great cox. The start was interesting. The ref started us way faster than I expected. It worked out but I was like "oh wow, I wasn't expecting that just now". And then our cox, who I just said was great, didn't call us to settle (take our stroke rate down). Thankfully I was counting and did the settle myself. Also the rest of the boat followed me which was even better.

    So yeah, great race. My club did really well overall today. Most of boats in the sculling races medaled and our women's novice 4+ came in 3rd. I have one more race tomorrow (mixed 8+ which I'm also stroke in) and then I'm done for the weekend. I'll probably come down Sunday to cheer people on, but we'll see.

    Went to a women's fitness festival today, so not my usual Saturday routine.

    1mile very easy run to ease legs

    30 min divacise- like a milder form of zumba
    30min zumba - I'm biased but not as high intensity as my usual class
    30 min clubercise- now this was high intensity and I loved it.
    40min bounce - felt like insanity on a trampoline, found it really hard.
    40min yoga - first time doing actual yoga, but between the piyo I have been doing and stretching with my trainer I actually knew all the moves.

    Had a health check while I was there and apart from being overweight (which they said they would ignore do to my obvious muscle mass and loose skin) my results where all great (although if I had been less active they might have told me to see the dr about my low resting heart rate) and my cholesterol levels are fabulous.

    45 minutes spin today. A lot of jumps and sprints. At the end, some people were talking about weak cores and somehow all of ended up on mats doing ab workouts for 5 ish minutes. Let's see if I can remember- bicycles, v ups, dead bugs, toe tap and something that was similar to Russian twists but you were almost (butt on mat, heels close to butt) in a bridge position. My core sucks and I really need to work on that.

    6/22/2019 - early afternoon at park -

    #1 - Double KB carries complex with a pair of 20kg KB - 0:15 each carry and 0:05 transition to next carry - #1 = double waiters walk + #2 and #3 = waiters walk offset rack carry R and L + #4 = double rack carry + #5 and #6 = rack carry offset suitcase carry R and L + #7-#9 = double suitcase carry x 3 equal 3:00 round, walking active rest 3:00 and repeat for 2 rounds in 9:36 - first time doing this, got it from Chandler Marchman's YouTube Channel - planned on 3 rounds but only 2 rounds today, 3 rounds next time - the 0:15 carry and 0:05 transition was perfect.

    Got the workout idea from Chandler Marchman's YouTube Channel and slightly modified it, here is how he does it:



    #2 = walk 1 hour = 3.22 miles.
