    Around 8K, again rowing bow in the double. Garmin says 8364m, but once again (sigh) I forgot to turn it off until after we finished carrying boats back up to the boathouse.

    We were out with the single again, so keeping him comfortably close for safety. When we got a bit further ahead than ideal, we did some things that added meters without adding much lead time-wise, like row up through a bridge only to spin immediately after, to give me a little bridge-steering practice, and looping downstream a bit at the start while he launched, before starting our normal upstream course.

    As a consequence of some of that, we were approaching a stretch where I prefer to be cleanly single file, with him pretty close behind, so we laid on a short power piece to pull further ahead, which went very well given how little practice we've had doing that this season. (It's easy to get frantic when powering up, and rush the slide, or lose some technique, but it was pretty smooth. Nice.)

    Such a beautiful day, too: Sunny, 40s F, flat water, isolated trees turning bright red and yellow against a backdrop of most still fully-leaved and green (looks like flowers in a bouquet). It was pretty awesome.

    Then my car broke down, and had to be flatbedded to the repair shop, but that's a different story. 🤣

    Sounded incredible until the last sentence! Hope the car is better!

    Easy 55 minutes again today of just indoor work. Well, Tucson has shattered the heat record of like 95 100 degree days. I think we're up to 102 or 103 of them for the year now. Still too hot to row. Finally, will get below 100 by mid week. Still too hot to row at lunch. I might have to wait another 2 or 3 weeks.

    I've been down and out for a bit. Had some oral surgery and have had trouble eating a decent amount of food so took off 4-5 days. Back at it this morning:

    40 shoulder tap push-ups

    4 mile walk, followed by playing with kettle bells. I did 3 sets of 5 goblet squats with 32 kgs; then 200 swings (double handed) with a 24 kgs.

    Hard, short intervals. 16 of them. 10 on the LateralX and 6 on the AD Pro -- 60 seconds slow, 60 seconds moderate, 60 all out. HR started around 80% max on the first few and by the end it was around 93% max -- 800 calories in 50 minutes.

    100 pushups and shoulder lateral raises tonight. Did back rehab as well.

    It's Tuesday, so it must be 43 minutes with the dumbbells. Also some random side leg raises, donkey kicks, resistance band Pallof presses, and ab wheel rollouts (from knees) as incidental exercise, mostly while doing other things at the same time.

    Beautiful weather, so my "cardio" was an easy steady-state walk to pick up my car from the repair shop, just a hair under 4 miles at an average moving speed of 3.6mph.

    I'm not a regular walker, because my knees are cr*p and don't like impact. Still, I was amused when my Garmin's "insight" was "You are moving more than a typical Tuesday." No kidding. 🤣 For more amusement, mostly from the walk, it thinks I climbed up 71 flights of stairs and down 56. 🤣🤣🤣 I should probably be equally amused by this, also based on the walk, which is a small incremental upgrade in its estimates, just in time for my 65th birthday in the middle of next month:

    I just ran a mile around the house in the dark, as fast I could go because the grizzlies are out there roaming around. I seldom do that but the weather was too nice to stay cooped up. I think I released some endorphins but I would [email protected] my pants if I ran into one of them. :p:p

    I did a YouTube 5,000 step workout :)
  • MikePfirrmanMikePfirrman Member Posts: 2,111 Member Member Posts: 2,111 Member
    Super easy 58 minutes. Barely broke a sweat and nearly all of it was 50 to 60% max HR (really easy recovery stuff). Left knee was hurting after yesterday's workout and that's my only good knee, so I backed way off today.

    This morning's session was Team Body Project's "HIIT with Daniel", followed by a short 1-mile outdoor "cool-down" walk. I wanted to walk another mile at least, but I needed to head back inside to begin the virtual school day. Next time I'll set foot out of the house earlier and grant myself more time to walk. I've really been missing my routine of daily 4-mile morning walks since the school year began!!

    Casual recreational bike ride on my hybrid bike, 15.63 miles on road/trails, with my rowing buddy again. Quite gusty/windy, so taking it extra easy to save up for the hills on the way home; and with a break for latte at a local shop at around mile 11/12. Total 15.63 mi per Garmin, average HR < 50% heart rate reserve, but peak at 75%+ 🤣
