    I went climbing on Monday, after 24 hours' travelling and 7 hour time difference. It didn't go particularly well.

    I went climbing yesterday. I had a theory that climbing is a good way of recovering from jet lag. It appears that I was wrong - yesterday was my worst session in a long time.

    Back and shoulder day. Warm up with 100 assisted pull ups. Then 6 sets of pull downs with the last 2 sets being SETH sets. Then 6 sets of close grip cable rows superset with wide grip cable rows. Last two sets of each being SETH sets. Then behind the back side cable raise superset with cross body cable raise. 6 sets of 12 each and last two sets SETH sets again. 6 sets of 15 Arnold press superset with dumbbell side raises and dumbbell front raises. Then reverse drop sets of dumbbell shrugs to failure from 40-90lbs then back down.

    60 minute rowing (C2) workout again today. Light and easy. HR only got to 140 once. Slow but that doesn't bother me any longer. More looking at the long run.

    Repeat today except let the drift go up to 145. A bit more meters than yesterday, but not a lot. Working on a slow rate (strokes per minute) along with a stronger stroke (after my back injury, I became pathetically weak very fast).

    Hard, longer interval workout today. 1000m warmup (on the Concept2 rower), 1000m hard, repeat for an hour. Had to take a 3 minute break in the middle as I developed two blisters right in the middle. Likely gripping too tight on my right hand.

    Got my HR up to the 90% Max on each of the 6 intervals (really 5.5 intervals because the Band-Aid fiasco). 1000 plus calories burned in an hour. Average HR over 160. Hit 188 a few times during it.

    15 mile walk, with around 2,000 feet total ascent.

    It was very, very muddy. It was nice getting to the countryside, which was deserted.

    And this is just stupid these days.

    Some don't have access to bikes or pools or weights. We have to be patient and kind. Gyms will likely close in weeks. All the gyms in Europe are already closed.

    By the way, though, Tai Chi is a great alternative to water aerobics for those that need water therapy and there are great videos on YouTube.

    60 minute, nice and easy C2 row in the yard, with HR not averaging 70% of max. Reading from Masters rowers in Europe that they are recommending not too much work in the "red zone" (90% of max HR) as it lowers the immune system. Something I'll have to keep in mind. I might change my workouts where I'm only doing one hard day out of six, instead of two hard days. My wife is 59 and somewhat immunocompromised, though not as bad as years ago when she had full blowout Fibromyalgia. I need to be strong for her.

    Hard interval Concept2 row today. They've advised Master Rowers not to push in excess of 90% of HR Max and I tried to follow that advice, to keep immune system strong. 1030 calories in an hour. 16 or 17 reps of 25 hard strokes, let HR settle to 140, repeat (145 in the last half hour).

    I'm fortunate in that I stopped going to the gym 3 weeks ago. I have everything I need at home at this point. My son is at home now and daughter comes on Wed. His job is in limbo and she is working from home indefinitely (in Cyber Protection sales).
