What Was Your Work Out Today?
Rock climbing at the climbing gym! (Short day though because I ripped up the side of my fingernail getting overly ambitious with a dynamic move, then couldn't get the bleeding under control). At least we made it in for a bit, climbing is always a good end to a busy day.2

Nice! I can't wait for gyms here to reopen. I built a woody in my garden, but it's not really useable when it's raining as the holds are too greasy.
I did some hangboarding yesterday, building up to 15 seconds on the 15mm ledge in a repeater. (I did 15 seconds on, then rested a minute, for 5 reps.)
I then did 3 set of 5 finger curls, 60 kgsl; and 2 sets of 10 bench press, 50 kgs.1
0.25 mile walk (warm-up)
1.50 mile run
0.25 mile walking (catch my breath)
0.75 mile run
0.25 mile walk (cool down)
3.00 miles total
Plus some yoga/stretching/cool down because, well, just because! 😉1
Started out with 20 minutes of elliptical then completed the following weightlifting session. Bicep/Back day. (low weight-high reps)
Very quick upper body session today1
PT session at 4...never know what she's going to bring.1
Sydney Cummings workout (glutes)
A second 30 minute Sydney Cummings workout (cardio and abs) I did with my son at “recess”.
7.5 km walk with my BFF.2

So, it has been quite some time since I've posted in this thread.
It would be a bit extraneous, I think, to try to catch up on recording all the daily movement regimes I failed to post here, so I'll just summarize it:
I continued with my usual Team Body Project morning/early afternoon dates. I aim for at least 30 minutes every day - some days I do an hour. Some days I do one session, others I do two (and the rare three), but my workouts typically last between 30 and 60 minutes.
I stuck to my routine until almost two weeks ago, when I somehow broke a rib. (!!)
Since my injury, I haven't "pressed play" like I usually do. In fact, and I dread to admit, my activity level has decreased tremendously. I thought I was a bit bonkers before this downtime, but these past two weeks I feel like I'm going INSANE. My mind is circulating with fear and worry and anxiety - fear over "losing" any progress I might have made, fear of turning into a "blob", and fear that I won't be able to move like I used to and want to.
Anyway, I didn't come here to unload a flood of complaints and negativity on you all.
I came here to check in, and also cheer you all on in your journeys.
I really hope I get to enjoy movement with you all VERY soon.
Please be gentle and kind to your bodies, and grateful for every chance you get to celebrate the gift of movement.
I am gradually starting to realize that I was very selfish with that gift - the gift of mobility. I took it for granted, and I think I might have abused it a bit. Our bodies need rest and recovery just as much as they need exercise. I hope I get another chance to put that into practice and treat my body better.3

I usually don't work out on Saturdays, but got up early today and knocked one out! (went out for dinner and drinks last night so need to burn some of that off!):
0.25 mile walk (warm up)
3 rounds circuit training
0.25 mile walk (cool down)3
Very cold and windy here this morning, so I switched today's planned long run/swim for an endurance ride on the trainer. Put in a slightly longer trainer ride that included some Half Iron effort blocks. 2:10:00 total time.
Warmup: 10min at various outputs: 140, 160, 180, 200watts
Recover: 5 min ez pace 120w
Repeat 3 times:
a) Race Pace - 30min @ 175-180w
b) Aerobic - 5 min @ 140-155w
Cooldown: 10min ez spin 105-120w
Struggled a bit this morning, since I'm still carrying leg muscle fatigue from yesterday's low rpm ride.
Leg day. Upper body is not sore at all so will get after it again tomorrow.1
Madfit 10 minute warm up. 2 miles on treadmill up hill. 32 mins.
I'm starting over. I feel energized and positive! Gotta shake the remote teaching, Covid funk!
Turning 50 this year.
Dumbbell bench press
One arm dumbbell rows
Dumbbell shoulder press
Yesterday, I did leg day:
Squats, 3 sets of 10, 85 kgs.
Deadlift, 3 sets of 6, 110 kgs.
Today, I did an 8 mile walk in the morning. I put out the climbing mats for an afternoon climb, and it immediately started to rain. It had been a week since my last climb, so I cursed and then carried on regardless. It was a pretty good session.1
Today was a swim/run day. Early morning swim was shortened due to only being given a half hour timeslot, so I focused on drill work and a 10x50 main set.
Easy long run scheduled for this afternoon. Temp was 13 degrees at 1pm today, so the run was cold. Four of us wore snow spikes for an easy run through the woods, including some creek crossings over snow covered wooden bridges. It was a pretty run and the group helped to pull me along for about 6 miles.
Now its time for some foam rolling and yoga. Rest day tomorrow.
Shoveled snow for an hour.
Quick handstand practice
Long hula hoop practice learning to do palm spins and back juggle toss.1
