    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.

    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.

    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.

    Continuing 30 days of yoga with Adrienne & mon - Friday fitness blender 5 day challenge & average of 10 burpees a day.
    Adding evening 20 min session on the Max trainer while watching scenic routes on YouTube and imagining I'm out there. Varying intensity.

    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.

    Relaxed day today: went for a roughly 20km forest walk in somewhat hilly terrain. That's all.

    Did my 6K timed test today. A bit disappointed but I didn't think it would be stellar. 2:12.1 pace (26:26.2 time). Total time, ironically on the indoor rower, equates pretty strongly with running paces, so this would be like a 26:30 6K running time. OK for a 55 year old, but not very competitive. I'd done 7500 meters at sub 2:00 pace just a few years ago, so I have some work to do still! Power is the weakest point right now. Really needing to add back in heavy lifting for leg drive strength. Cardio is getting there.

    4.2 mile run! And I mowed the lawn for about 20 minutes.

    75 minute bike trainer session today. (15min warmup, 15 min at tempo output, then 35 min above normal tempo power, 5 min cooldown). Session is designed to help extend TTE (time to exhaustion), which is a key component to long course racing.

    morning: Yoga, mid afternoon: hiit cardio and lower body strength, evening: hour of virtual fast hiking using the Max trainer and scenic routes on YouTube.
    I drove by the start of the walking trail, but it was pretty crowded with a full parking lot.
    Enjoying the lovely cardio warm fuzzies :)

    I did my hour long outside walk in the morning - we are allowed this as long as we respect social distancing.

    In the evening, I did a finger strength workout:
    Dynamic stretches; burpees; band warm-up; fingerboard warm up sets; weighted finger boarding main sets; finger curls; kettle bells; yoga.

    It took 2 hours 40. The kettle bells was around 25 minutes, consisting of 100 two handed swings, 100 LHS swings; 100 RHS swings; 100 alternating hand swings; 50 goblet squats. I did all this with a 16 kgs.
