    Was hoping to get a 5k run in. During mile 2 strained my calf. Ended up walking/ limping back to my truck. About 1.5 mile run about 3/4 mile mile walk. Hate getting older!

    What a difference 20 or so degrees and full sun make in a workout! I did 15K early in the AM before the sun was beaming yesterday fairly easily. Today, had one hour (around 12K) scheduled. HR got up much higher. Low 70s with beaming sun today. Might have to take the lunch time, weekday rows under the deck soon. Too hot, even with shorts and a short sleeved tech shirt. Odd coming from Ohio to be getting tanned legs in Winter, but I have them now.

    12.1K meters today (rowing machine), 930 calories or so. 2:29 Pace @ 17 SPM. DF was around 100. Avg force averaged around 70 lbs and max force a little over 100 lbs per stroke (1100 or so strokes). ErgData gives you the force of each stroke. It's an app for the Concept2 Rower. I've noticed that my Force per stroke has increased over the past few months, which means I'm slowly building back power. Rowing is an endurance strength sport along with cardio workout. What this means is it's like doing 1100 deadlifts, 17 per minute, around 75 to 90 lbs per lift, for one hour solid with no recovery except the two seconds between drives (reps). All while trying to keep your HR in check. And great rowers make me look very weak!! Some average well over 100 lbs of force per stroke.

    90 minutes climbing.

    This was very good. I got my first v4/v5. These have been so difficult for me, so I've not really attempted that many - I spend most of my time at this gym on v3/v4. However, I've started to get most of the v3/v4 graded ones, so tried three of the v4/v5s.

    The one I got was actually not too bad - I got it second attempt. One of the others will go next time - I was very close. The third was lolwatI'vefallen - I got nowhere near.

    My favorite new HIIT workout -- do 5 minute warmup on the rower, then 25 hard strokes, let the HR settle back down while still rowing easy (140 in the first 30 minutes and 145 after that), repeat. Got 16 sets in for 10K of hard intervals. Over 800 calories burned in less than 50 minutes. Would have done 12K but wanted to take the dogs on a walk after.

    Walked on the treadmill while typing an angry-vent-email to my boss. Accidentally prematurely sent twice. Yay technology.

    Tomorrow morning I intend to get up and run...

    Climbing.
    My 5th day out of a possible 6. This started very well, but dipped towards the middle. I got quite pumped, possibly due to climbing frequency recently. So I ended on a slab, and got a long term project - one of the hardest V3/v4s at this gym.

    A little over 7 miles easy recovery run on my usual figure 8 “loop”. Absolutely perfect running weather, mid 40s, slightly overcast, no breeze and was treated to a gorgeous sunrise! A good start to the day.
