    Fit Father Project - Phase 2 - HIIT training on the Dreadmill for 35 mins
  • MikePfirrmanMikePfirrman Member Posts: 2,656 Member Member Posts: 2,656 Member
    Around 30 minutes of supersetting, then 750m X 4 on the rower with one minute rests. Cut it short as I'm expecting a treadmill delivery any minute (for the wife and daughter -- I might walk on it on occasion, but my runner days are over).

    Another day, another

    * 30' yoga, stretching, foam rolling
    * 5377m machine row

    I feel like some of the stretching, and the foam rolling, is helping with knee discomfort from the walking, maybe. But other factors could be helping. Who knows? 🤷‍♀️ Regardless, I'll take the effect, whether I know the cause or not.

    Swim this am; 2400 yds
    warmup, then some kicking and pulling drills into
    4 x 400 builds
    cooldown

    I'm a mediocre swimmer, so I'll need to add a third swim each week to make significant improvement in swim fitness by race day.

    I wouldn't consider anyone that does open water swims a "mediocre swimmer". I'd personally be a great drowner in those circumstances.

    Dumbbell RDLs
    Stability ball leg curls
    Dumbbell bench press
    One arm dumbbell rows
    Dumbbell shoulder press

    Same today, except dumbbell Squats instead leg curls (and prior to RDLs).

    I guess it all depends on the group you're comparing yourself against. You're a heck of a rower, but I know that you compare yourself to the elite folks and realize the differences that exist. In my case, I'm an "adult onset swimmer" so I see the wide gap between me and those in my group who were swimmers in high school and college. And at 63, I'm never going to catch them, lol. My goal is to simply finish the swim while remaining fresh for the bike and run.

    BTW: Even mediocre swimmers can usually finish an Ironman swim with the help of a wetsuit. :)

    I did 2,600 steps walking my dog, and later I'm going to walk 55 minutes per way to my Christian friendship club :-)

    Had to miss yesterday to meet with my Accountant (I detest tax season, so if I've seemed grumpy lately, that's why! All better now that I have them done).

    Today was 65 minutes or so of cardio. First 40 on the rower, then 25 on the Assault Bike. Really have to pat myself on the back for keeping the HR in check today. I'm usually terrible about that. Plus, it's not easy to do on the rower, but all of it today was under 70% max HR. I strive to keep my SS (steady state) days between 60% and 70% max HR and 52 minutes of the workout were in that zone. Most of the rest of it was climbing up to it in Warmup. Only like 2 minutes slightly above it (at 71%).

    An equipment assembly company is putting together the new treadmill tonight (Sole F80). Going in the master bedroom for my wife. I don't run any more, but I might use it to walk uphill on occasion. My daughter loves running, so she'll use it all the time.

    Ran tonight. Did the workout on the grass soccer fields.

    Did Billats tonight. After warm up and ez pace run for 20 minutes, did 10 x 200 billats, then finished with an ez pace cooldown.

    Upper body lifting day. I was massively out of form, everything felt heavy. I did:
    • 2 sets of 5 and 1 set of 4, bodyweight dips
    • 2 sets of 5, 30 kgs OHP and 2 sets of 3, 35 kgs
    • 3 sets of 5, 50 kgs, bench
    • Some L-sits, but I didn't hold them very long.
    • Some pull-ups off the hangboard 20 mm ledge.

    I don't know why it was so hard - my sleep was pretty good. Oh well, today is a new day, and I've started off with a few pull-ups, L-sits, dips and a an hour of yoga. These have gone way better than yesterday.

    Cut the 5:30am swim short. Plan called for 2500yds, but I quit after 1500, mostly due to fatigue. Think I didn't get enough recovery from last night's run. Have a deep tissue massage set for noon, then an indoor trainer ride tonight.

    Hoping today's Covid shot (#2) doesn't cause too many side affects. :)
