    Mon 6/8

    MORNING
    41 Chin ups, 110 Push ups (both in sets to failure with minimal rest between sets)
    21 miles on mountain bike trails. Vigorous with many inclines.

    AFTERNOON
    20 pull ups (overhand grip)
    I haven't been able to do pull ups because of shoulder injury..Since I have been building strength through weight training, chin ups and push ups over the past several months, I can finally start doing some pull ups too. Sets 7, 5, 4, 4....I've got to work up to higher numbers slowly but I'm happy with today!

    This...we had to do it in less than 15 minute. Then started working through a 300 rep portion of the workout...I think I only got to 100.

    Seeing this thread pop up on the first page every time I logged in this afternoon shamed me into finally doing my upper body workout after work. Short walk and an even shorter stair climb in the morning.

    We (4 to 6 of us) do push-ups at the office every M-W-F, about once per hour, just to break up the day and to quit staring at the computer screen for a minute. We track our push-up count on a spreadsheet.

    Yesterday we surpassed 2,000 total push-ups in the past 6 weeks.

    Had to move back inside today. Air filled with smoke. Of all things yesterday, some idiot put his drone up after every news cast had said that putting a drone up risks the firefighters in the air, so all activity had to be stopped temporarily -- both on the ground and up in the air (because you have to see from the air if there's risk to guys on the ground. Hope they find this moron and press charges. Coming up on the seventh anniversary of the loss of the Granite Mountain Hotshots (an entire crew from AZ lost fighting the Yarnell Fire in 2013). So wildfires around here with the winds are no joke. Not as fast spreading as CA fires, though.

    Article on the fire.

    16 minutes of intervals (8 short intervals) on the LateralX, then 40 more minutes (8 more intervals) on the Assault Bike.

    If this keeps up, I'll likely put the rower in the garage until the fires are out, which might be a while. No view, but minimal smoke.

    Fitness testing is done, so I'm moving back into a build cycle. 66 minutes on the bike trainer. Ten minutes of various warmup cadences, then some single leg pedaling drills (which I hate) then 3 x 16 minute over/unders, then cooldown.

    Each O/U interval is an eight step ladder of 2 minutes(VO2Max, Threshold, Tempo, Aerobic, Aerobic, Tempo, Threshold, VO2Max).

    Will do 20 minutes of swim stretch cord work later today.

    I have done similar for years. It's amazing how much just 3 to 4 minutes, once an hour 3X a week adds up. I also find if I do it that way, it doesn't seem like a lifting workout as much and I don't dread it as bad. It takes me around 3 minutes to do 25 pushups, 25 weighted squats/KB swings or KB deadlifts and 15 single arm pressups (each arm). On top of my rowing, that keeps me in pretty decent shape.

    I do miss the heavy lifting from the gym once a week or so, but this is a lot better than nothing and most would underestimate how much strength that 200 pushups a day, 3X a week will give you. Plus, it's proven to help with mental clarity throughout the day.

    Too hot to run today. Did upper body and core workout on rings. About an hour’s worth.

    * 15k steps walking over 12km (where, like, half of this was me getting lost...again)
    * a truncated/shortened version of my lower body workout plan before bed because I was happily interrupted with a surprise visit
