    Zwift FTP Builder - Strength. And by strength, what they mean is sprint intervals. 2x5 30 second sprint intervals (300 watts)/1:50 rest with 10 min rest between each set. That was paired with a warmup and cool down. Was a bit boring but I watched some GCN and part of the 2019 Big Fat Quiz of the Year 2019.

    2nd January

    Still recovering from flu but feeling so much better today. Managed a full cardio workout.

    1hr of LISS including 5km on the rower and 10km on the bike. Deliberately kept it low intensity as really am still recovering.

    30min Beachbody on demand yoga class followed by practising the crow pose.

    3.1 mile run as part of RED January this was the only point where I really struggled, everything else seems to be good, but my legs felt seriously heavy. Still it was faster than yesterday so an improvement. Hopefully tomorrow will see another slight improvement

    I'm back after a week break to spend with my kids. First time I've had all 3 of them together in a year, so I wasn't working out. Just enjoyed the time with them.

    Back at it today -- 10K on the rower outside. Was supposed to be Steady State but way too high of a HR so I just turned it into an AT workout. Not real fast but I'm supposed to do a 10K TT this month, so I'll keep that one just in case I don't do any faster. I think it was like 2:20/19 SPM, but HR was like 160 average and hit over 180 at times. I'd like to get closer to around 2:12 or so.

    1600 yd swim (feels pathetic; super low but first day in the pool after a long time)
    35 minute run
    35 min abs

    Wanted to bike but had to nap instead. Will regularize sleep as training becomes regular again..

    Just a 1.6 mile run at lunch. But I'm really happy I got to do that. It was supposed to be a light day anyways

    Just some simple whole body circuits. Intensity was overall lower, but I know from previous experience that it's going to ebb and flow a bit until I find the midpoint between "pushing too hard and making myself sick" and "I could do better".

    Strength training on the machines at the YMCA, whole body, plus core work. Stair-step machine. About an hour, total.

    Moving! I carried boxes out to my car, then carried boxes into our new place. Not too much fun. I would rather have been at the gym listening to music. I will be glad when it is all moved. We have too much stuff.

    Evening team erg. 12 x 250m full pressure (100%)/3' rest. After the 11th one I felt like I might be sick and after the 12th I was thinking to myself "so if I pass out..."
  • MikePfirrmanMikePfirrman Member Posts: 2,246 Member Member Posts: 2,246 Member
    Same as yesterday -- 10K on the rower @ around 2:24 today/19 SPM. HR more controlled today, around 155 average (still too high but coming down).

    3rd January

    Still recovering from the flu. And had an active rest day.

    Just over 1mile run to keep RED January going.

    30min yoga stretch workout

    Zwifty McZwift.

    Really easy 50 min "foundation" ride in Zwift's FTP Builder program. A nice contrast from yesterday's erging. To put it in perspective, my highest HR this evening was essentially the average HR for yesterday's recoveries, and I wasn't moving for most of those recoveries (outside of the very heavy breathing...).

    I took my kids to the skating rink and I skated as well, for 1 hour. We would have stayed longer, but it was packed, and we left early after my oldest son hurt his tailbone falling to avoid another fallen skater, AND a woman was taken down by a small, very fast child. I think that woman might have broken her wrist!

    4th Jan

    3.2 extremely muddy miles at parkrun with a friend. It was like running through slippy treacle and we did well to stay upright and not lose a shoe

    I went bouldering yesterday, and smashed it in a 90 minute session. I got pretty much everything I tried, except for 1 overhang out of the cave at the end.

    I went bouldering today. This was a 2 hour training session, and it was brutal. We ended on a 5 minute plank, which hurt like hell.

    I then went swimming, mainly because I wanted a hot shower, and my heating is broken. I did 1 km.

    I also got in 15000 steps.
