    Did an hour rowing machine yesterday. Nearly done setting up the weight gym in the garage as well. Got two and a half things built of the three I have to assemble. My plyo box is done, so is the Slam Ball rack. Nearly one with the Power Tower as well. Just have to put the overhead bar and and arm/back rests, then figure out where I'm hooking the heavy ropes. I might also put up a heavyweight rings/TRX holder on the ceiling.

    Have you ever tried a 4min run/1 min walk approach?? If not, you might find it gives you a lift.

    We will often use the 4:1 during our long runs on Sundays after doing a hard run or bike the previous day. The 1 min walk really helps bring down heart rate and prepares you for the next 4 minute block. That interval is short enough that our mantra during these runs is " You can do anything for 4 minutes" :)

    I've done something similar when I was doing the C25K program. I had gotten up to the point where I could do 30 minutes straight but backed off a bit for a while, then kinda stopped for a month or two. So I'm just trying to build up my endurance again. I can go about a mile/mile and a half at a time, but yesterday just wiped me out.

    Thanks for the advice, though! Maybe I should try something a little more structured like that to get me back up to speed.

    Today was:

    3 rounds of circuit training

    Took yesterday off -- had solar installed on my house -- took all day long, but glad it's done.

    Today was a hard interval workout -- 2 minutes on, 2 off for an hour. Did the first 8 on the rower (500m sprints) and then the last 7 on the AD Pro (Assault Bike). 880 or so calories for the hour.

    Rowing intervals were around 2:02 pace (slow for me, but where I'm at right now. Need to get finished on that garage lifting gym!). Bike intervals were around 250 Watts or so. Tried to cap at 90% of max. Last couple went over.

    Heavy snow overnight forced the pool to close today, so I switched to an indoor trainer ride.
    1:16:00 ride with some muscle tension work.

    5 min warmup
    15 aerobic output
    then 3 rounds of (8min sweet spot output(175W) @ 55-60rpms/4 min recovery pace)
    15 min aerobic output
    5 min cooldown.

    Back to the pool tomorrow.

    Hangboarding. It started well, but I needed to cut it short. A friend is trying to become a Twitch streamer, and she beat me up at Dominion on her stream. I nearly got everything I wanted done - I skipped the weighted hangs.

    After the stream, I was restless so I benched (50 kgs, 3 sets of 12) and OHPed (35 kgs, 3 sets of 5).

    Yesterday
    I got a quick climb in over lunch. Gravity was strong, unfortunately.

    My Fitbit gave me a message around the importance of getting 10,000 steps in, which struck me as odd. I've got more than that every day since 11 December, and I was recuperating from heart surgery on that day.

    2 X 5500m row. Steady state work. Been thinking about keeping my steady state work under 70% HRR (heart rate reserve) rather than 70% HR max. Significantly different for me. 70% HR max is like 138 and 70% HRR is like 148 or so. So today, I kept it all under around 147 or so. Seemed to work well and I don't feel too spent either.

    My RHR (resting HR) is like 50 and my max is like 192, so I've been comparing my work (never a good idea) to others that don't have a max HR close to what I have for my age (it's all heredity, actually). While hard work can keep your max HR from dropping too much as you age, you can train your RHR to a degree. My RHR years ago was in the 60s, before I did significant cardio for the last 13 or so years.

    First set was around 2:34 and second around 2:36. Slow, but felt easy-ish, like it should.
