    I follow home workout programs and I'm currently in the beta phase of T25. Today was dynamic core, glad it's done!

    Another of my usual of an hour on the rower again today. It was a warm one, so took the rower under indirect sun under the deck. A bit faster than yesterday, but still pretty light and easy. HR around a 70% of max average. Pace was easier than HR would have indicated. Didn't feel like a 70% max HR workout, felt more like a 60%, but I'm very much pacing myself as my body recovers from that flu. Think it was at least a few seconds faster pace than yesterday, which was 20 seconds slower than my usual per 500m (so seriously off). 11.5K meters.

    I expect to pick back up to where I left off rather quickly as I recover more.

    I started a new Powerlifting / Bodybuilding program this week, so week 1 / 12.

    Today Deadlifts 4 x 10 sets, 285 lbs

    Then a complete back workout after that.

    Did an hour on the rower and didn't keep the HR too far in check. Wow, flu recovery as it affects the HR is like a science experiment. I burned 1000 calories in an hour and averaged nearly 160 HR, but was slow as molasses on pace (2:32 or so). Looked like a solid AT workout but felt like a 6 or 7 out of 10 in terms of effort. Was able to yell at my puppies when they were barking too much, so I was able to talk at nearly 170 HR, so all good (my HR runs genetically high, my max is around 195 and I'm 55, so I'm kind of an anomaly).

    No big efforts. 60 minutes weeding and digging in the yard to plant 30 bulbs. 90 more bulbs to plant another day

    Then building a 20' long wood plank walk along the side of the garage for 2 hours.

    Hitting tennis balls left handed against a wall for an hour. I'm beat. I skipped swimming.

    8 mile run this morning
    Strong Lifts this evening (I'm a weakling, so only at 50lb for deadlifts :# )

    90 minute row (Concept2) today (with only a short second break to pull the rower out of the rain to under the deck). 16.9K meters. Did a really nice job of mostly keeping the HR under 75% of max (145 for me).

    Working my way up to a half marathon every Sunday.

    Have not been diligent logging and kcal discipline. Root cause is ibe been allowing myself a glass of wine here and there. Getting back on the horse.

    Took 20 min cycling FTP test Saturday. Averaged 281 watts which estimates my FTP at 267 watts. (+15 woot woot!) Hope to get as close to 300 as I can.

    Sunday, gravel ride with 2nd half on road yesterday with riding buddies. 47 miles all in.

    So exercise going well. Just have to readdress kcals in.

    That old rowing work is kicking in! Nice FTP test.

    Today was same ol', same ol'. Easy one hour row, really just concentrating on HR, not pace. Might try a harder one tomorrow and see how some light speedwork feels.

    45 minutes of running and walking intervals. For the first run really of the season it wasn't bad

    12 hard speed intervals in an hour on the rower, slow rowing between. Nearly 12K meters in an hour. 5 minute warmup, 25 speed strokes, let HR drift back to 140 (145 in the second half hour), repeat again. Great lactic acid clearance drill. Around 1000 calories in the hour burned.

    First hard workout since my battle with the (regular) flu. Saw some 185s in there on HR, so the ticker still works OK.
