What Was Your Work Out Today?



  • goatggoatg Posts: 1,266Member, Premium Member Posts: 1,266Member, Premium Member
    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..."

    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.

    An hour and 7 minutes on zwift doing one of their tempo workouts. There was also some eye rolling from me as both of the ads that ran on my Chromecast while watching Youtube as entertainment were for, you guessed it, Zwift.

    3 hours of pickleball from 10-1pm. Tonight I'll do some stretching and ab work. Might take my son to the gym tomorrow and do legs/shoulders plus 10 minutes on the treadmill to get the heart rate up.

    Sidewalks were clear, so 30 min run followed by a 30 min trainer ride.
