What Was Your Work Out Today?
30'-ish yoga - stretch - foam roll.
5274m machine row, 2:32.6 avg pace, 16 spm avg, below 70% HR reserve.
Took an extra day off yesterday (except the yoga etc.) , no great justification or rationale, just slacking. 🤷♀️3
Today so far I'm sitting in a ferry terminal waiting for my boat back to shore. Last two days I've visited two islands. On the first I walked some 15km over sandy beach, marshland, and sand dunes, and on the second cycled some 40km and walked around 10km over terrain where I could not cycle. My Garmin watch told me I was slightly stressed out and maybe a mild workout might be exactly what I needed at the end of both days3

Sounds like a great way to spend a couple days!1
First of two swim fitness tests this morning. 500 yards of warmup, then a 400 yd test, 4min recovery then a 200 yd test. Lungs were on fire.
As an adult onset swimmer, I'm not as adept at maintaining good form as I fatigue during higher intensity swims. I'd much rather suffer on the bike or the run, lol.
Rest day tomorrow.2

So been a bit sidelined as of late. First, had a back procedure that gave me a couple of stitches so had to wait 2 weeks for that to heal, then immediately threw my back out (unrelated). So just got back into the swing of things last week.
Went back to C25K Week 4 to get my running legs back, I'm on W5D2 as of today. Doing VERY light weight/body weight work so I don't compromise my back again, too. Lots of walking mixed in when the weather will allow as well.
So today: 2.33 miles running/walking1

1.5 mile walk during my lunch break and 40 minute rebounding workout this evening, including 8 minutes of planks/isometric exercises.2
Today was my favorite! LEG 🦵 Day. 30 minutes with my personal trainer. Then a podiatry appt for a cortisone injection in my foot. I'm praying I can workout tomorrow.3
* 30' or so of yoga/stretching/foam rolling
* 5.14 mile walk, 3.9mph average pace
* 24' upper body supersets, light weights
* 30' easy pace stationary bike (65% HR reserve and below)
Combo of light snow and sunshine (sometimes simultaneously!) on the walk: Gotta love Spring in Michigan, because . . . really, what's the alternative? 😆🤣 Not gonna move.2
I visited my parents. It's the first time I've seen them since my Dad's cancer diagnosis (and subsequent chemo and remission.) It was good - they seemed well.
It was 8 hours' driving, so I didn't get much exercise in, just 16,000 steps.
I went to the climbing gym. I was terrible - worse than my first session since lock-down ended. It was 90 minutes, and I was still doing harder stuff at the end, so my endurance was at least OK.
I tried to avoid gyms before seeing my folks, due to risks from new Rona variants. Now I'm unlikely to see them for at least another month, I may start to go a bit more frequently again.2
Got in a quick circuit training workout this morning. 3 rounds of push ups, pull ups, goblet squats, single leg deadlifts, and various core exercises (leg lifts, planks, side plank/lifts, etc). Plus a 1 mile walk this morning during a break at work. I'll try for another one this afternoon...2
18 mile run - needed to get some mileage in the legs.
Bought a TRX-style trainer system online (will arrive tomorrow), hoping to attempt some kind of workout with this tomorrow.6
Got a late start today and only did 6K on the rower. First night of a new social golf league this evening. They make you get a cart to move play along faster, but I hope to get at least some walking in while walking to the ball (and I'm not a great golfer, so that could end up quite a bit!).3
Upper body. was so gassed, i missed a set of bicep curls and abs. oh well. legs tomorrow.1
30'-ish yoga - stretch - foam roll.
5327m machine row, 2:32.9 avg pace, 18 spm avg, slipped above 70% HR reserve for 43" (heh), otherwise below.
33' core exercises.2
Rest day yesterday, so I'm back to fitness testing today.
Second swim test of the week this morning, a timed 1,000 yard effort after roughly 500yds of warm up laps. Don't yet have full swim speed back, but my
endurance is improving.
Today's other test will be a timed 5k run after work.2
Upper body yesterday, legs tonight after work and possibly a walk. Depends on weather for the walk3
8 rounds of Supersetting weights for 30 minutes. HR got up to 80% max during that. Then did 2 X 1000m rows. Around 45 minutes total, 50 including the rowing break, waiting for HR to come down.2
