What Was Your Work Out Today?



  • AnnPT77AnnPT77 Member, Premium Posts: 16,495 Member Member, Premium Posts: 16,495 Member
    Spin class (though I was late, so only 43 minutes!) and 8,728 C2 rowing machine meters (49 minutes, including the row in/outs and CD), pretty much back to back, except for driving the few miles from the Y to home in between.

    GIven a relative lack of sleep last night, spin class day + the rowing is making me contemplate a "How Much Cardio Is Too Much for a Li'l 'Ol Lady?" thread over in the fitness forum. Or is it a "high rep low resistance leg day" at 980 strokes on the machine, according to Garmin, and whatever the sprints & "hills" amount to, in spin class. :lol:

    JK, folks.

    @ Ann - that's a lot in one day, for sure! I took it pretty easy today. Cranked up (for me) the DF to 115 and did a 30 minute row, rate 20 @ 2:16 or so. Beautiful day today outside.

    Doesn't rain often here in Tucson, but when it does! 2.9 inches yesterday here where I live (North of Tucson). We had days during Monsoon season where the downtown got drenched and we didn't get anything. Yesterday was the opposite, which was nice, we needed to catch up a bit on rainfall for the year. That's like 1/5 of year's total rainfall!

    30min PT - legs, started with 30 squats, 30 squat jumps, 30 lunges, 30 lunge jumps, pull her along to next lamppost with resistance band. Then dropped to 25 repsmand repeat, 20 reps, 15 reps, 10 reps, pull her the whole way back. Hamstrings were proper cramping by the end.

    Benching - I upped my weights this week and dropped back to 10 reps in my working sets, then going up in 2.5kg intervals for up to 5 reps a set, finally managed to get back up to 50kg and am now just 6kg below my previous 1rpm.

    Zumba (pretty self explanatory, it's my fun form or exercise)

    No insanity in December so took myself to the gym. Had a treadmill run (2 miles), followed by the incline/decline bench and flies I had forgot to do this morning. Then did some yoga and back work.

    My workout Lol :) Lifting 75lbs steel chassis for two hours. Discovered my strength has improved the last few weeks as I no longer need to shoulder the weight :)

    An active rest day for me. LISS cardio (2 mile walk), a 15 mins. barre-inspired workout and lots of deep stretching this morning. No PM workout.

    Feeling great!!!!

    Easy Z2/Z3 spin for 50 minutes.

    Recovery/step back week which I am due for. No hard stuff this week. Huge overload week last week at the end of a 4/5 week build. Felt wrecked Mon/Tues but starting to feel better today. Excited for a week of lower key exercise.

    Stuck on a stubborn weight plateau. Although weight is weirdly consistent (*exactly* the same every day).

    Hope to get 45 minutes of walking in rest of day.

    I did my morning yoga and then ran 3 miles after work. I’m getting back into running (a little) and I felt powerful today:)

    SameSameSame 9,689 C2 rowing machine meters (inc. row in/out and CD meters); easy to moderate steady state (2:31.8 @ 19spm for the core 8k); overall 58% Z3, 21% Z4, remainder lower.

    Feel reasonably good about HR drop from 151 peak down to sub-aerobic 125 in less than 2 minutes entirely while still steadily rowing the cool-down (albeit at around a super-slow 3:00 split ;) , then to 101 quickly when I stopped. ).

    I played underwater hockey for 1 hour. It was good, although I only got 3 goals. I was a lot less drained than the previous time I played, 6 months ago.

    Spin instructor out of town, turned out no sub found. Another guy and I cycled for a while (no music, so more LISS/MISS (mostly Z3) vs. usual varied intensity intervals. Broke off after about 35 minutes to get home early and start on the 8,698 rowing machine meters, since I have a doctor's appointment early afternoon to get to. Rowing also mostly Z3, 2:35.3 @ 21 for the 8k actual workout.

    Feeling very low energy (short sleep again), but HR seems to be tending a few beats lower for the same split, compared to when I started indoor season a few weeks back.

    I'm playing Wallyball tonight. 1 hour with no breaks is a kick as work out. I can burn about 500 in that hour.

    I wanted to get in this months ITC (inter club challenge) in early for my indoor rowing club. They picked a 2K TT, likely because many of them are in some high end races this month, including the BRIC (British Rowing Indoor Championship). Great for them, not so great for me! I hate 2K TT, especially when I just took 10 days off with that outpatient procedure (a cyst removal under my arm).

    Anyway, was a beautiful day, was debating doing an easier 4 X 2K set, but ended up going out faster so just went for it on the first set. Not much compared to where I was two years ago (low 7:00s), but first time under 8 minutes in over a year on a 2K, so I guess I'll take that. Did 20 minutes slower afterward as a C/D. No warmup, which is kind of stupid, but mentally I just wanted to get this one done. The other required row this month is a sprint set, which are fairly fun to do.

    First pic is the view of the mountain with the snow on it from where I sit on the deck. Today was around 60 degrees and sunny. Snow where I like it -- 15 miles away up on the mountain.
