    Easy 60 minutes today. Really easy. Wasn't feeling it today. My wife is going through some potential diabetes testing and we've cut way back on carbs (both of us). I have a feeling I'm going through a bit of an adjustment period to that. I normally eat carbs, even simple ones, pretty freely for the most part. I've cut that WAY back for her so she doesn't feel like she's doing it alone.

    Harder intervals today, only 10 of them and short. Five on the rower (one minute each) and five on the Air Bike (same one minute each) with one minutes of rest. Around 1:54 to 1:57 pace. I was going back over my rowing numbers a few years ago and it's a bit discouraging, to be honest. I was doing low 1:40s on similar workouts, even some high 1:30s. Back injuries are killer for power. So is not having a gym when you feel most comfortable on machines for lifting legs.

    I was on holiday scuba diving in Cornwall. It was marvellous.

    We arrived at about 4 p.m. on Friday. Here was the view on arrival:
    uauimou41u7q.jpg

    We got a night dive in. I have around 400 dives in total, with around 300 of those being in the UK, but this was actually my first UK night dive. I saw a dogfish (a small spotted shark).

    The next day, it was forecast to Force 6 gusting 8. It was actually less windy, and we had some shelter, so we only made to a reef 100 metres offshore. It was beautiful, covered in jewel anemones. We saw a nurse hound (a spotted shark, about 4.5 feet long). They are reasonably rare - it's only the second I've ever seen.

    The next day was lumpy. We made it out to a local reef, having looked at further out and decided it was dangerous. Again, it was a lovely dive. We ate a pub a few miles' away - I walked there. There was enough moonlight to not need a torch.

    On Monday, it was flat calm. I'm only allowed one dive a day due to a hole in my heart. I was on the early wave. We dived Penwin, a pinnacle, which was amazingly nice with 10 metres or so visibility. I then got in a long walk, getting around 20 miles in total over the day. Here are a couple of pics from the walk:

    One the final day, I got a dive in on the Helford River before heading home. This is very shallow - around 8m all dive. There was loads of life - tiny fish and hermit crab were fighting over pretty much every square inch of sand. We saw some bigger stuff as well: three thornback rays; a red gurnard; and a pollock.

    Good luck with the tests. I am remission from Type II. The guy who inspired my diet wrote a book recently:

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/1780724098/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    It summarises his academic research - dieting can be extremely effective at reversing Type II is it's caught early enough. (Pancreatic beta cells, which produce insulin, potentially go dormant and eventually die if there is fat around the pancreas. Diet reverses this process - the book recommends 15kgs loss, although less could work if your wife is already quite light.)

    Back on the river, rowing bow in the double for about 7K. Nice day (little cold 😆), for sure the lean end of the season coming on us now.

    I took a couple of extra rest days, Sunday as usual, added Monday/Tuesday. Had been feeling fatigue-y for some reason for a while, plus had an eye procedure (YAG) on Monday that had me a little anxious. (Not risky, but wondering how much visual acuity it would restore - happily, the answer was "lots". Cataract surgery on the other eye in a couple of weeks.)

    Now feeling more rested . . . time to end the hiatus, get back in my routine.

    Thanks Matt, I'll look into that. Her numbers came back yesterday. Sounds like she's borderline, not full blown yet and they caught it early. Still going to see the doc and schedule a follow up. It's good to know early and change behaviors. She's not really that overweight to me, but she could likely lose 15 to 20 pounds to feel her best (I could lose around 10 and be fine!). She lost the weight with me years ago and I've stayed around the same on maintenance and added muscle but the weight has creeped back on her -- not as much as before but around 1/2 of it is back. We both are believers in modifying diet/behavior for health, so it won't be that hard for us. I'm Celiac and she's allergic to cow dairy, so we already don't eat much junk food now. Just have to tighten things up with sugar.

    Did 50 minutes today. Really easy light cardio. 10 minutes on the rower out in the yard and then 40 on the Air Bike. All just over 60% max HR. Really felt like I needed an easy day today.

    Same as every weekday just now lunchtime 5k powerwalk/run on a hilly route from home 300 ft climb and descent. A short kind of kettlebell/steps mishmash in the evening. Hate that the dark nights are back and the gyms are closed due to local covid lockdown once I'm finished work as i used to cycle 1 or 2 hours in the evenings over summerbut the roads are too dangerous from here in the dark and rain. Lunch time walks and lower calories for now.
