    30 minutes on bike, 30 minutes rowing.

    Told myself I'd wear the HRM today and see how the row went and base the amount of meters/time on that. Ended up doing 5K only. HR was way too high relative to pace. 2:22 pace @ 20 SPM but HR was nearing 160 and sometimes over it at the end -- way too high for that workout. So I finished with 25 minutes on the Assault Bike, very easy.

    @ Ann -- I think the 2K TT and the 7 X 1'/70" rest took such a toll on me that I'm still feeling the effects, so I can relate to your 2K TT avoidance. No sense in pushing things if you don't have to. You're getting in tons of SS, just like you should be doing in the offseason and getting just enough fast work in to keep what you have.

    I did 90 minutes bouldering.
    I sent nearly everything. It was very good. I got 4 or 5 long term projects. This was one of my best sessions.

    No workout today. Our daughter flew in from college and we are enjoying our day. I am overjoyed to see her and I know what happens when I’m that happy...I eat more! I decided to go over on my calories by no more than 500 calories because I wanted a little more pasta (today is our pasta dinner night). I also worked my butt off for the last three days to balance out my calories. Tomorrow my hubby, my daughter and I are hitting the gym tomorrow and I plan to kick butt on that elliptical machine, get a good weight workout in and cool down. 👍🏽. This is what I really love about MFP because you can make choices and still balance things out.

    Thursday, so spin class, 53 minutes, mostly Z3.

    And not Christmas yet, so another 9,774 rowing machine meters, the 2x2k work pieces at 2:29.6, 21spm; overall workout with cool-down and such 55 minutes, 24% Z4, 56% Z3, rest lower.

    One more Garmin intensity minute, and I'll be at 600 for the week (with days left to go), 4x the commonly recommended 150 per week. That's nothing compared to the marathon trainers and triathletes around here, but I think I'm doing OK for a li'l ol' lady, age 64.

    @MikePfirrman, I don't train anymore. I row for fun, mostly, and for health as a side effect. The Winter rowing machine work helps me avoid starting from almost zero every Spring. I try to do the Holiday Challenge (body problems allowing) each year to boot me out of sluggish denial that on-water rowing is over for another year, and into that Winter maintenance mode. I'm doing SS work now, because if I don't, I won't get those meters in, especially this year (Thanksgiving so late!): Intensity is fatiguing. I don't have to ever do a 2k TT ever again, so I probably won't. ;) Volume's going to drop a bunch in a week or so. :lol: Best wishes to all of you you who have racing aspirations, and who train accordingly! :flowerforyou: :drinker:

    Good couple of days of spinning. Z4/5 intervals yesterday. Z3 intervals today. All hardish as I recently upped my FTP which shifted output up for all zones.

    Had a bad two days of cals in (one where I broke no alcohol diet at a holiday party and went a little overboard). Back on track for last two days. Will weigh in tomorrow to see where things are at.

    30 on the rower (2:25 or so, really slow -- did a nicer job today of controlling HR), then 25 on the AD Pro Bike.

    Erging this afternoon. 3x20' 2 min rest. Remarkably steady in terms of my splits: 2:12.8, 2:12.1, 2:12.5 which is funny because I wasn't actually trying to do that. My primary goal for the last two intervals was row at least 4,500m per interval for the sake of the Holiday Challenge.

    No surprise Friday: 9,713m rowing machine. The "real" workout, in which I was trying to rate-cap at 20spm and get at least 10m per stroke, was the normal 4 x 2k:

    And this is how hard it was (or wasn't :lol:):

    Only need 13,720m minimum in the next 4 days, which should be easy peasy as long as I don't get run over by a bus or something. ;)

    Erging because of dock maintenance and a ton of rain. Around 14,300m including warming up and cooling down. 12,102m until I finish the Holiday Challenge.

    8x8 volume training, chest and back today. It is my first week doing this type of training and it is nice to be sore again! Substituted dumbbell incline press for a barbell incline press, to help out an nagging pain in my forearm.

    i also added

    3 sets x 10 Reps of Face Pulls and Trap Pulls at the end of the workout.
