    Just under 7k, rowing machine, as 3x2k on, 2' off/CD, in two separate chunks because of schedule nonsense.

    An hour and 25 min on Zwift because I was unable to will myself to go and erg and I needed some sort of aerobic exercise*. Even that involved making sure that I had lubed my chain, made sure that the batteries in my power meter were working (note to self, get rechargeable batteries for the power meter), and inflated my rear tire (wheel on trainer) before I left for breakfast and grocery shopping.

    When I say that I try to lower the barriers to exercising, I really mean it. That said, while I feel like I "should have" erged today, I did get to try out Zwift's new(ish) mountain biking course. Another plus is that my Garmin 935 suggested that my FTP had jumped 10 watts since I last tested it on October 15th (and then proceeded to do next to no riding). Given that it's typically spot on (or within a watt or two) when I do FTP tests on TrainerRoad and that I road for over an hour uninterrupted, I'm willing to believe it. I blame erging and maybe lifting, but mainly erging ;)

    *Unstructured riding on Zwift is my go to when I am in or about to be in a rut of not exercising/not exercising frequently and am having trouble getting out of it.

    One thing I have to remember in 2020 is to start my Apple Watch when I'm doing work around the house etc. The thing I'm trying to figure out with my Apple Watch is why I don't get credit for all the calories burned during my workout? The only calories which seem to show up in diary are the "active" calories. For example, yesterday I burned 609 "total" calories on the elliptical but only 463 of those calories counted as "active" and showed up in my diary :/

    Rowing: 10k in a double this morning. It was a very good row and we totally held our own with the three 8s that were also out.

    1.25+ mile free-style swim...50 minutes = 1 piece of carrot cake (but is so worth it B) )

    Today’s workout was an 8 hour day hauling fire wood and putting in fence posts. I’m tired and guaranteed to be sore tomorrow.

    After a quick warm-up, swam out to a deep sea canyon where a group of turtles live. Some current taking us out, and resistance on the way back. About 90 min total. Lots of marine life as usual.

    Second workout: 50 min on Zwift. I'm tentatively thinking about doing one of their shorter FTP plans and this was workout one of that. Essentially 50 min of recovery intervals.

    Another ~10k in a double. The exact same boat, the exact same position, the same stroke coach (little computer thing that's like a bike computer), a different person in bow, and a much less enjoyable time getting off the dock. I don't enjoy it when my heart rate elevated when I haven't even started rowing.

    Morning: 10 mile walk with around 5 hills. I did it quite quickly, as I'd forgotten to pack any lunch. I found a parrot at the top of a hill - I'm seeing if I can use Facebook to reunite it with its owner.

    Afternoon: Walk to the pool, and a 1 mile swim. I got 26,000 steps in total, so not a bad day's effort.

    That is a much more brightly colored bird than the ones I typically see ;) I typically see great blue herons, bald eagles, geese, duck, seagulls, more geese...so many geese. I think I may have seen a few cormorants this morning and yesterday as well (they might have a nest near our dock).

    Hopefully the parrot gets reunited and also wasn't a victim of an owner dumping it somewhere.
