    67 min on zwift with a ton of power meter drop outs. I was not impressed. The thinnest of silver linings is that it was meant to be a very easy ride.

    75 minutes climbing.

    I fancied doing longer, but I mis-timed it and got to the gym at 8.30 p.m. - it shuts at 10. I worked from home, due to my boiler needing a repair. I don't walk as much when I work from home, meaning I'm more sedentary than I'd like during the day.

    This was an OK session. I didn't go all out, but got loads of the easier climbs. (Some of these were new routes to me.) I was pretty much the only person at the gym.

    Day 1 of my intensive bootcamp week with trainer. Still not quite 100% so shes going easy on the cardio and more in the muscular endurance.

    1hr PT session, full body muscular endurance with trx, plus some boxing and running. She is getting seriously fussy about hand/leg/body position, which means that these are getting tougher and tougher

    30 min tabata class

    45min barbell class. I was going to go light anyway but decided to mix things up and use dumbbells instead of the bar (and a plate for goblet squats instead of barbell squats). Definitely works the muscles in a different way and some of it was more challenging. She is always making me use different types of equipment anyway, so think I might use the dumbbells every other week.

    Heading in for leg day and rowing! Let’s goooo
  • MikePfirrmanMikePfirrman Member Posts: 2,571 Member Member Posts: 2,571 Member
    I've upped my rowing this week (10K a day), but I wanted to work some fast intervals. Didn't have a lot in mind starting out today except to do some speed work and also 10K. Ended up settling on doing a 4K warmup, then "Power 10s" followed by slow rowing until my HR settled back down to 150. Only got 6 of them in, LOL. Had to let my SR drop down to 15 at the end just to bring the HR down to 150, which is pretty sad, but it's where it's at right now.

    Anyway, mission accomplished. Got the 10K in and got some speedwork in, though 6 Power 10s is a bit less than I hoped for! But I did like this workout. Might do it again soon on Tuesdays.

    I did see some 1:30s in there but most of the intervals were around 1:45ish and the rest of the row was slow -- 2:26 or so to start, by the end, 2:40s just to bring the HR back down to earth.

    This is a nice training piece to train the body to reuse lactic acid and for lactic acid tolerance.

    Zwift's "intermittent" workout while watching Big Fat Quiz of the Decade (well part of it). 61 minutes, the first three intervals were tempo and the last three were three sets of six 30sec sprint/30sec rest intervals. I remember once upon a time someone said that if you can watch TV/a movie while working out, you're not working hard enough. They clearly haven't had enough practice watching TV while working out ;)

    Felt better than I thought it would, but I definitely feel it in my quads (those sprint intervals). It turns out, while I think the TrainerRoad plans are far better designed than the Zwift ones, I'll actually do the ones on Zwift. Yay gamification.
