    Rest day physically - coxed a novice 4. It was a challenge for a lot of reasons and now after that, coffee/breakfast, and a trip to farmers market, I'm very peopled out for the day.

    Same here. It's a physical rest day today for me too. Kind of not looking forward to getting back at it tomorrow, but got to do it. People are starting to get sick at my gym with the weather changing, so I have to start being more careful now especially when I see a lot of people don't always wipe down the machines after they use them 🧐

    Exactly. I'm a bit anxious about going sculling tomorrow (rowing with two oars per person - I'm not especially good at it and it makes me nervous) but I have to do it. Not doing so will just make things worse. My rowing club started late fall/winter land workouts yet (all rowing machine all the time except for the weekends), but when we do we are very good about wiping down the rowing machines. The number of Clorox/Lysol wipes that we go through is staggering and people hold each other accountable. That said, when you have hundreds of people (my club and the juniors) using the machines multiple times a week you have to be.

    Usual 6.9k rowing a double, this time in bow with my former Big Ten champ rower buddy sitting stroke. Still steady state, but a little more energetic than usual, because li'l ol' lady gotta try to rep. ;) Technically, it's good for me to try to match her length through the water on the drive: Her technique is better in so many ways (duh! ;) ), and she's also a few inches taller.

    I'm noticing that the Great Blue Herons are tending to be a little more photogenic on average (though I have no photos to prove it), presumably because it's getting colder overnight, so they "pose" in a bit more stretched-out and fluffed-up position to sun themselves to better warmth in the morning. Being in the outdoors and seeing the sights is one of the things that makes on-water rowing so delightful.

    You got this! One day at a time. Might need some kind of energy source to give you an extra boost tomorrow though. It's definitely hard to find the motivation to go sometimes.

    Clorox wipes & sanatizer are great to have around. That's good the people you're around use them. We're given a rag with some kind of cleaning solution & there are sanatizer dispensers all over the gym, but people don't always use them. I'm going to have to start breaking out my medical masks when I go till this passes. Last time I was at the gym during cold/ flu season I caught bronchitis a week before my birthday right before we were leaving for vacation. It was an awful experience.

    A very good nearly 10k in a quad sitting 3 seat. We weren't the fastest quad on the water, but I was able to a lot of good work technique wise. I also got some useful coaching and apparently made good changes during the middle of our 21 minute piece (21 min variable rates).

    I'm suppose to have practice tomorrow and tuesday, however thunderstorms are also supposed to be a thing those two days. Hopefully I won't wake up to thunder tomorrow.

    A 7 mile bike ride that was supposed to be 15 or 20. Some idiot wore shorts unaware that someone pulled the plug on summer today. 🤣

    Yesterday, I got a cheeky quarry dive in the morning. The visibility was only about 50 centimetres in places, but my buddy was a pretty decent diver, so we lasted 50 minutes.

    My drysuit was dry. I think the earlier leak I had was user error on the neck seal. It flares out, so I can only double it over a little bit.

    Today, I did 10k on the indoor rower. It took me 46.39 minutes, 2.20 pace. It is my best time yet, but objectively still pretty slow.

    Two hours after the rowing, I did 80 minutes' bouldering. It turned out that the rowing sapped my finger strength, so it was a pretty poor session.

    Been stuck indoors most of the day but finally got out to do a very easy 30min sunset run. Only supposed to have done 10-15minutes to keep running steak going, but needed to get out and run a bit longer.

    90 minutes of cardio at the gym today. Got carried away a few times on that rope thingy that you pull down in a constant loop. It's like a rope pulley that you pull down, almost like you're climbing a rope but it feeds you more on a loop. Tried to pull it so slow it didn't get my HR over 75% but then I got carried away and got the HR up to 90% max. The rest was rower, stairmaster and stationary bike at around 150 watts (the bike says I'm riding at 250 Watts but the gym equipment is so inaccurate).

    14.7 miles of hiking in the gently rolling English countryside of the Cotswolds, trying out a new pair of hiking boots.

    Added a strength training element by carrying my existing boots in my backpack Just In Case...
