    Cycled 40km. Really chilled nice, fast cycling. Until the storm came up and I had to cycle the remaining 10km against it. Oddly, my speed went down by a lot :D

    I went round my little brother's for a climb on his garden wall.

    It was good - I was in reasonable form. I felt terrible right up to when I started. The it all felt good, and fell into place.

    We did a short (maybe 5 mile?) walk afterwards.

    Short 10 minute workout today.

    Rowing - the latest usual 10 secs hard 20 sec off for 4 minutes x 2. Some decline sit-ups in between and at the end.
    Yes, I'm on a decline sit-ups kick this weekend.

    @JessAndreia, I hope you'll trust that this is no kind of loaded/gotcha question (!😬!), just me being sort of a rowing nerd.

    When you're doing these, are your "off" bits easy rowing, or not-rowing? I've done a similar style of interval in the past, usually in the format WU, 8 x (20" on, 10" easy), CD (i.e., the old-school Tabata), so I'm just curious how you're structuring yours. I'm sure it's challenging!

    (I don't do decline sit-ups. I'm not sure I even *can* do decline sit-ups. Go, you! 🙂)

    Dang! Got me! :# (kidding)
    Completely rest, so not impressive. Not sure I'll switch to easy rowing as opposed to not-rowing as I feel like I need the rest to mentally and physically prepare for the all-out rowing bits. But hoping to be able to do 10 on 10 off (not-rowing) in the near future.

    There's not a single thing "lesser" or less impressive about that! Hard pieces are *hard*. And you're doing 8' of those intense intervals, besides. You're doing great.

    (Like I said, this wasn't any kind of attempted "gotcha" or critique. I think you're doing good workouts, nicely varied, with some good intensity in the mix. Besides, I have no platform for criticizing others: I'm pretty much "all moderate, all the time" lately. 😆 And that's fine, too. Overall, I think it's a wonderful thing when an individual figures out what's fun, challenging, satisfying, creates the right progress for them . . . vs. maybe falling into some fad, or other people's expectations.)

    Row on, and enjoy it! 🙂

    Thanks! And no worries, I didn't take your question that way at all.
    I think your workouts are quite impressive, moderate or not. Many younger people wouldn't be able to keep up with you.

    10K row on the machine on the patio. It was 85 degrees, so it was nice to have a breeze at least. Managed, albeit was pretty slow, to keep the HR all under 73% max (140). Most of it was actually under 70% max.

    Got one of those industrial floor fans coming this week for my weight gym in the garage. Going to need it!

    Rest day today, so just an easy 45 min spin to flush out the legs.
  • riffraff2112riffraff2112 Member Posts: 1,721 Member Member Posts: 1,721 Member
    Chest day (3 sets of dumbbell bench press and pushups) and a lot of walking

    After a rest day yesterday, another round today of:

    * 30' or so yoga/stretch/foam-roll. Feel a little stiff in the AM, and this gets the joints oiled up again. (Wondering if my thyroid meds need adjustment, though, since stiffness for me is a leading indicator sometimes.)
    * 5.11mi walk, a little faster at 4.1mph average this time.
    * 30' stationary bike, easy pace.
