    Glorious Summer-like November Day no. 5 (or so) began with Team Body Project's morning session:
    • Totally Combo HIIT with Alex
    • Just Move Evolve
    Then, this early afternoon, a lovely leisure walk with a dear friend of mine (only about 30 minutes around the neighborhood I live in, but thirty minutes of social time COMBINED with lower-intensity cardio activity is a lot better than zero minutes!!).

    Happy Monday, Pals.

    Another improbably warm, calm November day in mid-Michigan, warm enough to row the double in short sleeves (for the usual 7k-ish), and so calm I didn't much worry about the guy out in the single with us (even though he really, really can't steer yet . . . 😆 . . . he goes much farther than we do, with the zig-zags, but he's getting some speed nowadays so we don't need to slow down much to keep him in view for safety purposes).

    This isn't today, it's a similar day late last week; and it's not the double, it's the quad. Our mix'n'match lineup: Me in bow (at right, in yellow, age 65 in a week), two women in stroke and 3 seat who are 73 and 74 respectively, and our 29-year-old dual medical doctor (DO) and PhD student guy buddy in 2 seat.

    Fall colors are fading, as you can see, but man, this weather lately has been amazing!

    Gazelle glider in 10-15 minute intervals with fast walking in place on my exercise mat several times during the day.

    Climbed over lunch. I seem to be pretty weak at the moment - I got a forearm pump very quickly.

    First monthly CTC (monthly indoor rowing club virtual competition). I'm not really doing it because I'm competitive right now, just to see more if I can. Held out OK. Slow as hell, but did OK. It was a 1 minute/2 minute/3 minute/2 minute/1 minute row w/ 2 minute rests. Averaged under 2:00 (in the "old days", just two years ago, these would have all been in the high 1:40s, low 1:50s) -- so that, I guess, was good. First few faster then the middle two, but the last one was surprisingly decent. Still using really low DF (drag factor) so not to re-tweak the back.

    Finished with the same routine on the Assault Bike. Nice cool day outside. Actually had to put the rower in the sun to warm up. Felt good outside.

    Team Body Project session again this morning - this time repeating "Evolve Engage", then taking a 2-mile outdoor walk in the thriving summer-mid-autumn weather during my thirty-minute break.

    Just a li'l intentional walk, two birds one stone, getting outdoors for some fresh air (no sun, but warm), delivering a pair of earrings I made to a local friend who wanted them. A little over 3 miles, 3.8mph.

    For some reason, my Garmin lost its mind on the walk: It was only gently rolling terrain, but it decided I went up 415 floors, and down 338 floors. Um, what? (Yesterday, when I was up and down the full flight of stairs in my house *at least* 10 times, and probably more like 20, it thinks I went up 7 floors and down 9 (trust me, I was up & down the same number of times - all my living areas are on the 2nd floor, so there's no way for it to be uneven up/down unless I sleep in the garage. I would've noticed. 😆)

    Update: Tragically was sent to the hospital and now a neurologist to see what this back pain is about. Sigh*

    Oh no!!
    I am so sorry you are in pain.
    Try not to be discouraged.
    I am praying that not only you heal soon, but that you are in the most capable and graceful hands, and the neurologist figures it out. (:

    I worked out like a beast yesterday doing 95 minutes of circuit training, so today was an active "rest day." Squeezed in 35 minutes of ab/core workout. 💪

    A countryside walk in deep mud down to the waterfalls and back. Only 2 miles but it was nice to be down there. My boots are filthy now 😒

    Ironically, the doc was like 'pls continue to lift weights, we don't want you to become any weaker!!'

    Another 5K row for me today, followed by 30 minutes on the LateralX. Rowing was all under 75% HR max (though that's way too high considering the DF was really low, I'm just not in rowing shape yet) and the LateralX was nice and easy stuff -- all under 70% max. Around 700 calories burned.
