    One hour row today again. Easy steady state work. Seemed hotter than it was 75/76 degrees. Had to stop 3 times to wipe the sweat. Did some yard work yesterday and moved the outdoor fan I use. I think that made a difference. I also normally a Mission Cooling headband and forgot it. I think that also made a huge difference.

    Still kept HR all under 143, but I like to keep it under 140 on these rows. Only got up there toward the end and I settled it back down. Around 11.6K meters.

    10 mile bike ride tonight... followed by a brain workout (homework). Didn't do my normal Monday lifting. DOMs is going to suck if I keep putting it off...

    I did an hour's yoga in the morning. I got a reliable headstand for the first time! 😀 I ended up doing a few throughout the day, to check it wasn't a fluke. (It wasn't a fluke- I can do them any time now.)

    Work was silly, which meant that by the time I had eaten, I was only on 5,000 steps at around 9 p.m.
    I did leg day, and combined it with a lot of wandering around to hit 10k steps. (I know it is a completely arbitrary figure, but I haven't been below it since February, when some long-haul flights caused me to miss the target.) I reached 10k at 20 to midnight, so it was well timed!

    Leg day included:
    4 row sprints, 1 minute with 30 seconds recovery, 1 minute 50 pace. (I am slow).
    Squats, 4 sets of 6, 70 kgs
    Deadlifts, 4 sets of 6, 100 kgs. These were more of a struggle than they should have been, due to the climbing hand skin injuries
    Pistols, unweighted, 5 sets of 3 each leg.
    Core stuff on rings.

    Climbing day today.

    When you say sets to failure, do you mean you did 32 chin ups in a single set? If so, that is scarily impressive. (It's impressive is split over multiple sets, but way beyond where I'm at for a single set - I think my PB is 16).

    Hard interval row today 8 X 500m/1' (one minute rest). Did a 2K Warmup and Cool Down. Same workout as last week and had a modest .4 second improvement on the average (2:01.4 last week/2:01.0 this week).

    One minute isn't much rest for these but my HR dropped below 140 until the last two reps within 60 seconds. Just would like to get much faster on these. I was doing these in the mid to low 1:50s just two years ago (and 12 reps, not 8).

    Cut my volume of all lifting sessions. I haven’t been eating quite enough and my workouts have been suffering. Just an hourish of upper body today.

    10.4 mile bike ride around and through my community. Was a bit sore from running 8.4 miles Sunday and this easy ride helped loosen up the legs before tomorrow's Global Running Day workout.

    4 mile run yesterday.
    50 minutes of glutes + 20 minutes of upper body strength training today.

    Tue 6/2

    MORNING
    21.25 miles on mountain bike trails. Vigorous with many inclines.

    Today was the longest continuous ride I've had on the trails so far. 90 minutes and averaged around 14 mph. which is good on these trails for me. That will be it today, giving the rest of my body a break.

    Restarted training in June after a month off. This first week is a testing week, with 2 run tests and 2 bike tests to check my fitness. The results will be a stiff reminder of how quickly speed is lost during a layoff.

    Today was an easy mile warm up, then a 5k run test, which hurt like hell. Tomorrow will be just as much fun with a full 20 minute FTP bike test on my schedule.

    30 minute Ab-focused HIIT workout
    20 minute Arm lifting workout
    1.5 mile neighborhood walk

    Tomorrow will be a Yoga-style HIIT workout with a 3 mile run!

    *11k steps throughout the day
    * Lower body 20 minute workout. The first of a 4-week split training routine from a Men's Health book I've had and loved since 2007 or so.
