    I did Day 2 and Day 3 of my finger strength programme. Each day is:
    • Dynamic stretches
    • Something to get the heart pumping e.g. rowing sprint intervals
    • Band warm ups
    • Strength warm up
    • Working sets strength
    • Core work
    • Yoga

    It generally takes around 2 hours, and leaves me a bit broken.

    Day 2's strength work was bench, OH press, curls, dips and rows. Day 3's squats, deadlifts, 1 leg deadlifts, lunges, pistols

    Today will be hangboarding as the main session.

    Easy hour row again today. Felt much easier, though, than yesterday's. Likely because it was 10 degrees (F) cooler. HR only hit a max of 145, which was my high target. Burned around 750 calories. Felt nice and easy.

    Just curiosity: Are you observing any trend to higher HR at higher air temps, at constant output/pacing?

    Absolutely, even just the sun, which in AZ is quite beaming. Today was brisk and my HR was pretty low the entire time. I'm not sure, though, it makes it much harder when the HR is a bit higher due to heat, but I think it does have some impact.

    Last week (I've since moved under the deck for more shade), I was out in the sun on a semi cloudy day. When the sun would come out from behind the cloud, my HR jumps around 5 to 7 beats per minute.

    Over the summer, even though I don't like to work under a fan, it's like 77 or 78 inside in AZ. If you keep your A/C under that, you're likely to have a bill over $500, so people just get used to keeping the A/C at around 77 or 78, some even at 80! I bring a big *kitten* fan in and put it directly on me to keep the HR in check. It will be like that again in two months. Not looking forward to summer workouts here. To make me happier (and to offset losing my outside view), I'm going to get RowPro and a big monitor and put it on the wall above my rower to have a virtual rowing studio.

    I'm actually taking advantage of the social distancing to do some much needed energy measures on my home before the hot months. Already installed UV films on some of the windows and I'm doing a radient barrier in my attic this weekend, which can reduce heat bills by 10 to 15%. Very easy to do as well and low cost.

    FWIW, that's generally similar to what I've observed in myself when rowing on water at similar speeds in very different air temps. While consistent with what I've read about HR behavior, I was still curious what you were seeing because rowing machine is better metered, i.e., you get clearer indication that you're comparing similar output. Where I use my rowing machine, I don't get a huge range of ambient temps. OTW, things like wind/current are confounding factors to using speed/pace as a gauge. Like you, I haven't noticed that the workout feels appreciably harder, just that HR runs a little higher.

    There used to be a thing available, I think for the model C (?), a sort of fabric add-on that created a tube to funnel the flywheel breeze back to the person rowing. :lol: Haven't seen anything like that more recently, though.

    Day 4 of the bonkers finger programme.
    This took 2.5 hours, and was dynamic stretches, band stuff, Burpees, easy hang boarding, max effort hang boarding, finger curls, kettle bells, core gubbins and finally yoga.

    I swore a bit when I moved onto kettle bells after 90 minutes. (I just used a 16kg - I did 5 sets where one set was 20 LH swings; 20 RH swings; 20 two handed swings; and 10 goblet squats. I took no rest between the movements, and 2 minutes rest between sets.)

    The hang boarding was good. My finger strength is definitely improving.

    My Friday workout has been an AT (anaerobic threshold) workout lately. Have felt a bit tired so left it somewhat less rigidly structured. After a 20 minute warmup, I did 5 minutes @ 22 SPM, 2 minute rest (18 SPM paddling), 4 minutes @ 23 SPM, 2 active rest, 3 @ 24, 2 active rest, 2 @ 25, 2 active rest, one @ 26 SPM. Then mostly a cool down @ 19/20 SPM for the rest of the hour. Around 12.5K meters, 900 calories plus burned.

    In the midst of a training build for a half iron distance triathlon in June. (Fingers crossed that is doesn't get cancelled)

    Yesterday: 1:46:00 Neuromuscular Power session on the bike. (Power meter based)
    Started with 25 minutes of increasing cadence and watts as warm up, including a few sprints to warm up the legs, then two 12 min threshold blocks w/5 min recovery, followed by 4 rounds of tabata style anaerobic capacity work (2min "on", 1 min recover), then a 25 minute endurance segment to finish the workout.

    Today: 1:06:00 Run
    20 min ez warm up pace, then two rounds of: (10 [email protected] half iron pace, 3 [email protected] pace, 5 min @10k pace.) then 10 min at cool down pace.

    Swim: Pools are closed here and open water is 42degrees, so only dry land swim work.
    20 minutes of swim cord work.
    Ekhart Yoga on Youtube as recovery.
