    Did the 6K Timed Test today on the rower. Much better than expected. 2:13.9 pace. Last Summer, after doing a LOT more meters, I did a 5K at 2:11.9 pace, so I'm pleased with this. 1K further and less meters this year. I think the lifting combined with less meters is working. 26:47 total time on the row -- rowing times are pretty similar to running, so this equates well to a 6K run in 26:47. Hard for a 56 year old man that's breaking down! Not close to my PB (personal best), not even in the ballpark actually, but I'll happily take this for where I'm at in my training right now.

    Did a lighter lift afterward. What I could at least. Mostly all body weight stuff after that row.

    Maxed out on the row @ around 94 or 95% max HR. The only time I come close to 100% HR is when I race a 2K at a meet. This is about as close as I like to come to max HR during a training session.

    20'-ish sun salutations and yoga/stretch-y stuff.
    4.28 mile walk, 3.8mph. Colder (49F), windy, but sunny, so good.
    Around 40' easy-pace stationary biking, while (!!!) playing games on my phone.

    Trying to take these elderly, messed-up knees right up next to the brink, not over - so far, so good; discomfort, but no full-bore pain. Garmin fitness age now 25! WT actual F'n F?!?! 🤣🤣🤣 Now worried that it's *broken*. 😬

    I'm hoping to add back in some core and/or more explicit strength work to the routine, but am feeling like (sigh) I'm teetering right on the edge of undesired cumulative fatigue, overstress of the problem body parts, so holding here until that changes. (Second guessing whether I'm slacking, of course.) HRrest hanging out +/- a couple of beats, so that's reassuring.

    @Iwannabeapunkrockmom, fun workouts are the best workouts!

    It's Winter, my river is frozen (I love rowing the rowing shells, but that doesn't work on ice), so I'm just mostly doing tolerable stuff so I don't need to start from square one come real Spring. You are winning. That's pretty great! 🙂

    Agree completely! I row all the time on a machine. When you break down what I do, it's quite absurd actually. As my wife says, "you yank on a chain...". Does that sound bad?? LOL.

    I've done that Just Dance game and it's great exercise! Just enjoy it!

    Today I decided to walk rather than take the car and then did an express body pump workout.

    Walked some 18km yesterday all in all, including walk to the station and back home. Slept miserably as usual for some reason. I just don't manage to wind down, have problems getting my heart to slow down when I go to bed and fall asleep. It's not drastic, mind, 75-80 as compared to 60-65. But yeah, being active all day means a poor night *yawn*

    I went for a walk yesterday, and ended up running for 10 minutes. I'm new to running, but it was quite fun. I don't know how far it was - my guess is that would have taken 20 minutes to walk that bit, so 1 mile. So I'm slow, which is expected.

    I lifted in the evening, doing 3 sets of 70 kgs (bench) and 3 sets of 5, 30 kgs (overhead press).

    Keep it going! You're doing great. We've all started somewhere. For me, when I was at my biggest (which was around 10 or 11 years ago), it was just literally a few steps at a time. I injured my knee pretty bad and it was all about relearning to walk back then, so if I did 10 steps, it was a good day.

    Did 30 minutes of rowing today. Slight progress. HR didn't get over 70% max. Then did 20 minutes of pretty easy stuff on the LateralX.
