    My Indoor Rowing Club's CTC offering for this month. 1800m, 3 minutes rest, 1200m, 3 rest then 1800m again. Nice prep for the interclub 5K too.

    Back is OK after, which is good and I'm just going at these in workman like fashion so that's good too. Shows while I'm still recovering, I'm getting used to harder work again.

    This is a full 8 or 9 seconds off what would be a great pace for me just 18 months ago but I'll take it right now.

    2 hours bouldering. A very fun session. I got 2 new routes. I got a lot higher on two of my projects - I am 1 hold away on on of them now. I got half way up a difficult one (only graded V3, but the grades are hard at this gym.)

    It was my "next steps" day; 35 minutes of calesthenics, 20 minutes pedaling all in warm water pool (92-93°) which incredibly feels cool after 10 minutes in 102° hot tub 🤣

    I did some strength training on my arms & chest today & a bit of cardio by speed walking on the treadmill. Now I got to go figure out what I'm doing for breakfast 😅

    Had a 30 minute session with my trainer this morning. Fridays are my easy day so nothing too strenuous, mountain climbers, wall sits, tricep dips, seated rows and leg extensions. She also stretched my legs out for a few minutes. Afterwards I took my dog for a 25 minute walk. So glad to have her home! Hoping to do some more walking and stretching after work.

    90 min doing a TrainerRoad workout (Baxter) with Zwift and Netflix on in the background. That ends week 1 of 6 of TR's low volume sweet spot base plan (part 1).

    The usual Friday 7k row in the double. The only novelty was that for the first time in a long while, we experimentally threw in a few power pieces (increased boat speed by applying more power), rather than doing all steady state.

    This has been an unusually steady-state on-water season; usually we mix it up more. Between my knee issues (which led to a full exercise hiatus for a few weeks over the Winter), then recent rib injury, and my most frequent double partner's hip compromises (pre- and post-hip replacement, which was on 7/1/2019), we've been excessively cautious.

    It went OK, at the time. If it settles in OK, we'll be adding more intensity more often. I'm more the problem than she is: She's the most amazingly ready to roll person. Today, she was all "yay, power pieces!" I wanna be like her when I'm 73, but I'm not too optimistic. :lol:

    All of you guys are doing great! Just some easier work today for me. Was supposed to be 2 X 27 minutes in the Indoor rower. First half went fantastic -- 19 SPM felt easy so I just settled in there. DF (drag factor) nice and low - 87 or so. 2:26 pace for 27 minutes. Then during my second set, the wife brought my son's dog home from the Groomer (we're watching him for a few months while my son settles down from his move to San Diego) and all hell broke loose in my workout room, which I share with our three dogs -- normally very calm in their crates and happy to be in there. When Floyd came home, all the rest went nuts. Aborted the second set after 15 minutes and just was content to finish on the AirDyne Pro. All easy work. Actually felt all surprisingly easy after yesterday's hard row. That's encouraging but it might be because I took some days off last week made me feel fresher than normal on a Friday.

    Tomorrow, off day! Just walk the puppies and clean the pool and grocery shop.

    I did a combination of bench dips, push-ups, pull-ups, and shoulder flies. It was a instense! Found it here: https://noobgains.com/tom-hardy-warrior-workout/

    Got excited cause Tom Hardy did it for his Warrior movie. I'd give my left arm to look like him :/

    ...which made this morning's BodyPump class fun AND NO MISTAKE. BodyBalance to follow. And then a high probability of cake for lunch. If I can still lift a fork.

    Missed a couple of workouts due to a family medical emergency this week:( Did have a good sprinting workout with my son on Thursday. He’s devised “punishments” for the loser of each race (e.g. having to roll across our yard, 10 seconds of tickles). Definitely makes things interesting!
    Will finally get to my Krav class this morning.

    No bootcamp.today so I went to parkrun with a friend. At the last minute we decided to try the newer, tougher, trail parkrun.really enjoyed it, although 5k still isn't my distance. Feels like I'm just settling in and it's time for the sprint finish.
