    I was SUFFERING on my upper body this morning after poor sleep and only did 9 sets. But I revived and finished my sets this afternoon. Leg day tomorrow after a long night's rest.

    Same ol' alternating day stuff I've been doing lately:

    * 35'-ish yoga - stretch - foam roll
    * 30' assorted core exercises
    * 5293m machine row, 2:33.3 pace on the pieces, 17 spm average (heh), mostly below 70% HR reserve (around 29 whole seconds above, looks like)

    Oh, how to get wasted on the cheap: run all out, get thoroughly dehydrated. Drink a bottle of beer. Ooops!

    Sympathies. I think I have that merit badge, somewhere on my adult merit badge sash (though not from running, more like rowing).

    Woohoo! A merit badge! Well, then it all was worth it. (and I feel like *kitten* today)

    Getting the second vaccine shot today and last time I felt like dung, so thought I'd go at it pretty hard today while I had the chance. Did 2 X 10 minute row @ 20 SPM for the monthly indoor team competition. Did a 2:13 and a 2:12 pace for the two rows, pretty solid for me right now. Had a 5 minute break in between rows.

    Finished off with 35 minutes or so of pretty hard (for me) supersetting in the garage. HRM showed around 900 calories burned for 1:10 workout.

    I learned my "tree" isn't very good at yoga last night. I need some work on balance. Funny thing is that I nearly fell once or twice doing it in class and then came home and showed my wife and did the full progression the first time for her perfectly. Go figure.

    Took this shot before the class last evening. Lovely venue. If you're going to be uncomfortable doing yoga poses, might as well have a spectacular view.

    I did legs today and WOW I am sore. Was feeling a slight soreness from last leg session, but perhaps just because I am coming off rest week.

    So, I have never done the hack squat machine before today. I put my feed close together to focus quads, and I did not need to even add weight and could barely get 5 reps with full ROM!! Anyone else feel this with the hack squat machine??

    Scant 30' on the yoga - stretch - foam roll, because of need to get to an appointment.
    5.1mi walk, 3.8mph, kind of a lovely day, felt warmer than I'd expected (around 50F) because sunny and calm, lots of birds and blooms.
    Mere 15' of mostly-dumbbell strength supersets at very low (conditioning) weight, same stuff as last time just quicker with familiarity.
    About 30' stationery bike, very easy pace (mostly less than 60% HR reserve).

    I'm sorry to hear that you want to cry. Be proud of yourself that you did something. Try not to put as much pressure on yourself to be back in shape immediately. Walk/run or just walk. You're likely way ahead of where I was when I decided, around 10 years ago, to lose weight and get back in shape. I would literally count to 100 when I jogged for the first time. And that was after not being able to walk for over a year (due to a bad knee injury). Within a few years, I was running 9 mile intense trail races.

    It's the consistency of doing something regularly that will get you to where you want to be. You started back again. Miniscule improvements, daily, lead to incredible changes. That's huge that you took the first step. Congrats on that decision and I hope we see you back in here soon again.

    Not much. about 25km cycling towards some prehistoric dolmen, and a walk around old city ramparts. Nice day, very sunny and early warm.

    Weight room this morning...no more requirements for reserving a spot and time limits which is nice.

    Boys have their first soccer game this afternoon and then we're meeting up with another family to go mountain biking.

    @MikePfirrman, nice pace at that spm rating - bespeaks strength and technique.

    Was somewhat de-railed last week end, due to my own stupidity. Had Covid shot #2 last friday and I didn't give myself enough rest. Two hour bike/transition run on Sat was fine, but I had to quit 40 minutes into a 90 min run on Sunday. Could barely walk back to my truck. Dehydration, muscle aches, etc. MD gave me a scolding. She said it was the perfect storm of Covid side effects, not enough rest and dehyration.
    This weekend I'm back in the game: Friday was a long swim, yesterday was a 2hr trainer ride/ 20 min run brick workout. Today's session was a one hour "Familiar Loop" run, which my coach has me run every eight weeks or so to gauge fitness improvements.

    Next week is another test week. Swim speed test, FTP bike test, etc. 8 weeks til race day.
