    Really nice easy hour on the rower today. Perhaps a tad harder than an easy recovery row, but not much more.

    Allowing my athletic son to take me on a 5k training run, replete with a tortuous "warm-up session" that would have been my whole workout if I was by myself. Ah...to be young again.

    Good for you! Many of us are in our fifties or even sixties. My two adult kids are in great shape but admit my cardio is better than theirs now. I detested cardio when I was young and should have been doing it. If you would have told me back in my twenties or thirties (I was obese through half my thirties and early 40s) I'd be rowing 50 miles plus a week on a rowing machine, I'd have said no way. I'm pretty sure Djproulx is in his early 60s (he does triathlons) and Ann, a frequent rowing contributor, is in her 60s as well.

    It's never too late to get a lot more fit if you're physically capable of it.

    When I grow up, I wanna be like you @MikePfirrman! Thanks for the inspo (and reminder that my dream rower is waiting for me on my Amazon wishlist)

    Yesterday: two 20-minute rides on the stationary bike, weights with dumbbells (deadlifts, goblet squats, one-armed rows, overhead press), pushups

    Today: stationary bike (haven't yet though).

    The bike is harder for me than running, so I figure I'm getting benefit out of it.

    Ouch! I've fallen victim to the innocent sounding "dynamic warm up routine" before!

    Odd day today. Spent all morning until about 15:00 working like crazy (I usually have time to work out around noon). So I did a 50 minute barre workout from just past 15:00 while I was supposed to be in a meeting. Fortunately skype is giving me problems with regards to microphone. Thus I was in the meeting, but only listened along a bit. :D

    Then a while after dinner I wanted to go for a run, but didn't feel like it. Did a short but hard 16 minute arm/shoulder workout with pullups and handstands (I'm not there yet, but trying) and then grabbed my skateboard and went to a slightly sloping long road and went down twice. Well, tried as I'm only a totally bloody beginner.

    So somehow I managed to do nearly 100 minutes of workouts today

    Hour easy row again today. HR capped at 145. Was able to keep the SPM (strokes per minute) to around 20 until roughly 15 minutes left and then had to slow to 19 to bring it home to keep the HR under 145. Sometimes you don't notice improvements day to day, but just a few months ago, I had to keep my workout rates to 17 SPM to stay under 145, if it even would at that rate.

    Tomorrow's plan is a hardish 6K. It's for my club's innerclub comp, so not really all that important but I'll use it as a gauge of current fitness. I'd like to do a 2:10 or 2:09 pace. Not sure where it will end up.

    Did a mostly easy 75 minute run, with 8 x 2min hill repeats as the focus (2min climb/3min recover going back down).

    Three 10-minute stationary bike sessions an hour apart - resistance 5 out of 8, 13-14 mph (I was pushing hard, I have a ways to go to get stronger). This is harder for me than running.
