What Was Your Work Out Today?

    One hour of cardio. Did around 8K on the rower, then the rest on the AirDyne Bike. Wanted to keep the HR under 75% of max HR. Harder day coming tomorrow and wanted to make I'm recovered OK before doing it. Should call this Love Ballad work. If I put on anything aside from slow and easy stuff (mostly mushy love songs), I start to workout too hard, so my playlist is pretty chalked full of love music and soft R&B!

    Took two towel off short breaks on the rower to keep the HR in check.

    11 mile bike ride in the humidity. My chain fell off before the big hill and it felt like I was breathing soup, but it got done!

    7/17/2019 - again at the park starting around half past noon -

    #1 = Hand-to-hand swing with 24kg KB x 20 every minute on the minute for 15 rounds equals 300 swings in 14:37 - average HR = 147 bpm (82 percent) maximum HR = 158 bpm (88 percent) total 164 calories. First time hand-to-hand swing with 24kg KB - HEAVY.

    #2 = Easy run warm-up 2.1 miles in 21:00 - average HR = 146 bpm (81 percent) maximum HR = 152 bpm (84 percent).

    #3 = Run 2:00 at target 8:00 mile pace then slow run/jog recovery 1:00 for 4 rounds = 1.21 miles in 12:01 - mile equivalents were 7:58 - 8:14 - 8:14 - 8:43 - think the KB work stole too much from my cardiovascular tank because I missed my target for 3 of the 4 rounds - average HR = 155 bpm (86 percent) maximum HR = 162 bpm (90 percent).

    11 days until Wharf to Wharf, my upcoming 6-mile fun run. Might need a day of rest tomorrow, we'll see.

    ~10km sitting stroke in a 4 including lots of drills as well as 3x5min on 2 min off at a 22, 24, and 26. The 26 was awesome. Our cox was great - she typically coxes the advanced women's boats and this is the first time I've had her as a cox.

    Last night I did some bodyweight squads and Bulgarian split squats which work my glutes more effectively than just about anything else. My left knee wasn't especially appreciative of the split squats so I need to watch that. It's also probably a sign that I need to do them more consistently and really make sure I'm using my glute as I just added squats back in (this is some of what I did when rehabbing both knees).

    Just another spin class.

    As an aside, it's been fun watching the effect of increased heat/humidity on what my Garmin VA3 says about calories for my oudoor exercise (rowing) that's sometimes of slightly reduced intensity (because it's flippin' hot), longer duration (because slower due to reduced intensity), but a similar distance; and to compare that to variability in what it reports for the indoor cycling. Heh.

    Harder longer interval day. 4 X 8 minutes. Wasn't sure going into it that I had it in me this week all on the rower. Ended up doing 3 sets of 8 minutes on the rower, then doing an 8 minute set on the AirDyne Pro (@ 235 Watt Avg.). Was trying not to exceed (by much) 90% of Max HR.

    By the way, one of the toughest rowing sessions out there. Didn't completely complete it, but close enough and effective enough to grow Anaerobic Threshold and improve VO2 Max. Went back and looked at my numbers from this workout last week. I averaged 2:07.6. Think I could have bested that but I would way exceeded 90% of Max on that last set and probably took a toll on me for days.

    Just got done with an easy group ride on Zwift. I wanted to ride but knew that it would be a bad plan to just let myself loose without some sort of strong impetus to not go all out, thus a group ride it was. It was great until 5 min before it finished when the battery in my power meter got just low enough to cause an impressive drop out.

    Oh well - it was a good ride none the less and I don't feel especially worn out (especially given that I ate dinner right afterwards).

    Today’s workout was a slow, hot 19 mile bike ride.
