    I finger boarded on Tuesday. I was shattered, so it was a relatively short session but not too bad. I got 6 seconds on a 12mm ledge, which is top-range for me.

    I did active recovery yesterday, as I was still shattered. I got a walk in, although I only ended up on 12,000 steps, so it was a pretty sedentary day.

    Today, I did an hour's yoga before breakfast. I had a no lunch meetings for a pleasant change, so got in a quick climb. I did a bunch of technique exercises -for example, the robot. You nominate one thing that can move (your body or a limb) and keep the other things completely locked in place whilst moving the nominated thing.

    Took a rest day today. Didn't feel like working out the last 3 days -- classic symptom of need for a day off!

    On a brighter note, Zwift CEO announced that they will add in rowing in the next few weeks. Not rowing on Zwift as a biker, but rowing on Zwift as a rower. So stoked for that!

    Yesterday we finished spreading 83 bags of mulch!

    Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday we hit the road on our bikes (when it’s not raining😬)! This morning was a shorter ride! Three months ago I went from 1st to 3rd gear by mistake and realized it was a much better workout now I really push it!

    Three rounds (65 minutes total) of high intensity song sets in the supernatural workout game on the oculus quest, and three planks on my plank board for 3 minutes each.

    ...I like games. It makes exercise a ton better.

    There's a plank game I've thought about buying. You put your phone into it and then you play video games on it while you're planking, but it's like $100. Haven't wanted to drop $100 (yet) on a plank game, but it sounds fun.

    @BrownSugar174 - that's a ton of mulch! Nice job on the bike too! I moved from Ohio to Tucson last year. Haven't had to do the mulch thing here but we have all gravel in the back. Next Spring I'm going to have to put a few ton down. That should be fun in the AZ sun!

    Today did 4 X 8 minute intervals at lunch. Too hot again this AM to row so did my workout at my old time @ lunch hour. First two intervals on the LateralX and last two on the AD Pro.

    Goal is to get the HR up close to 90% max on these but not too far above that. Was mostly only able to push to 85% on the elliptical but got to 92% on the last two. Roughly 750 calories in 52 minutes total.

    So two days ago I did the Reddit RR again, doing kettlebell split squats. I'm still sore, but my bum looks cool! That was a total success. I'm also able to do a few pushups and hanging scapular shrugs now. There's certainly progress. I'm workout out every three days because I need the time to recover. As long as I'm still progressing that's fine with me.

    Went to a concert yesterday and did not dance. Instead I sat in a stairwell with another 20 or so people, watching some fab musicians jam and improvise together at middle height. This totally worked.

    Today I did my stretching routine and somehow managed to nearly get to the ground in front splits. Mostly been massaging my tight hamstring lately instead of stretching, thus I'm super surprised by this.

    Friday was leg day.

    I did an hour's yoga in the morning.

    I squatted 75 kgs, deadlifted 110 kgs, upright rowed 65 kgs. All for 3 sets of 5.

    On Saturday, I climbed. It was a decent session, around 3 hours in total if you include the warm up and warm down (which was weighted core and finger curls).

    Today, I did an hour's yoga in the morning.

    Then I climbed. It was another decent session. I sent most of the things I tried, so I probably need to set myself some harder routes. Stuff I found hard a month ago now gets sent first of second go.

    My usual 1 1/4 hr walk. I preceded to fall and most like break my finger because I need to be wrapped in bubble wrap when I leave the house. No weights today, I guess. :(

    Umpired two pony league age baseball games today (13/14yo).

    Lotsa of moving and running involved over a 3.5 hour span.

    Happy to see the kids playing

    Did a 3.75 mile walk today, and was feeling good so I did Core de Force MMA Shred. It was a solid workout day!

    Did 30 minutes on the LateralX and then 30 minutes on the AD Pro (Assault Bike). Worked on the pool and swam a bit, then worked on my pushups and pressups (try to get in over 100 of each on Sundays). Probably pushed too hard on the hour as the HR got up to 80% of max. Got carried away listening to music -- around 800 calories for the hour.

    Yesterday I cycled a nice round across a couple of villages and towns. Not a lot. Just 40km on my everyday bike. I wasn't quite sure if I could go through the centre of the final town with my bike and hence left the race bike at home as it doesn't have a lock. Trip involved a 4km sprint when I realized I'd forgotten my backpack at a place I took a break.

    Did 30 minutes on the rower this AM at 5. Was 84 degrees, but it had just rained. Not a drizzle either, a hard rain. So I wanted to sit on the patio on the rower and watch the action if there was any. 30% humidity too! That's terrible for here in AZ!

    Just did 30 minutes as I got carried away with HR a bit (let it get up over 150). I try to keep it at 140 and under for easy days. I'll likely pay the price tomorrow when I do my hard intervals.

    I ran hills and did some sprints with my wife and kids (Hills sucked) for some HIIT, and then proceeded to my leg day training- Squats, Hack Squats, Lunges, RDL's, ab crunches calf raises. My legs are DEAD! :smiley:
