    Another 8,892m on the Concept 2 rowing machine.
    You guys are exhausting me ;) I just got back into rowing on an erg after 25 (?) years and can last about 12 minutes. I love swimming, but I'm so slow.

    <snip>

    @girlwithcurls2, 12 minutes is great: If you enjoy it, keep it up, and both endurance and speed will improve - probably quite rapidly, as you've done it in the past, and are otherwise active. A lot of us on-water rowers break up the erg sessions into pieces of varying lengths with breaks, anyway, as you may know, so that's always an option. You may also already know this, but there are lots of great training tips and workout suggestions on the C2 website (https://www.concept2.com/indoor-rowers/training).

    15,600ish meters rowing in an 8, rainy but not pouring. I'm still cold, but as one of my sculling coaches who just happened to be in my boat this morning said, "it could be way colder". The real issue is that my face ended up getting really cold which I don't think anything short of a balaclava could help.

    Saturday

    No bootcamp today so I did parkrun. Disappointing overall time, combination of legs being tired from a week of being beasted and the start of an IBS flare up. But there were positives, I didn't stop or walk even on the hill, I didn't hate it (well I maybe hated the hills) and I finished strong.

  • aokoyeaokoye Member Posts: 3,494 Member Member Posts: 3,494 Member
    Sat stroke seat in a quad this morning. It was a rather intense practice, the bulk of which was: 20' @ 18, 15' @ 20, 10' @ 22, 5' @ 24, 2.5' open rate. All of those were with 3 min of mostly active rest inbetween. As the coach that came up with that said during coffee, if you people don't eat second breakfast and take a nap then I didn't do my job.

    I have missed a bunch of stuff in this log (I think 1 bouldering session, 1 yoga session and 1 weights.)

    Yesterday, I went for a swim. I was supposed to go bouldering, but I felt drained. So I swam 1.7km instead.

    Today, I went bouldering for 2 hours. It was not a bad session, but not outstanding either. My new project is probably the hardest V3 at the gym: a twisting jump dyno to start; then a knee bar to get out of the cave. Those two bits are the crux.

    90 minutes on the elliptical machine! FOR! THE! FIRST! TIME! I normally do between 45 to 60 minutes! I was inspired by a fellow MFP member!!

    Yesterday at the gym was 30 minutes of rowing, 30 of Stationary bike, rest on the Endless Rope machine (like climbing a rope), Stairmaster and Spin Bike (2 hours total). Literally hopped into the pool yesterday (it's like 60 degrees) a few times after getting in the hot tub. It's the first time (this year) I've ever had a pool or a hot tub and I now see how valuable it is to take "ice baths". The amount of inflammation after a killer workout is ridiculously less after dipping into icy water for a minute or two a few times! Beyond grateful to have that as a recovery tool now.

    For those wanting to do this, all you really need to do is hop in a cold shower, then take a hot bath (with Epsom salts). Same principle. My DOMS has been significantly less on days I do this.
