    Easy 6 mile run (recovery power zone 1) this morning and an easy 40 mins indoor cycle on Zwift. A really good day all round.

    Increasing training stress over the next 6-7 weeks during the last build block. Increasing run volume and doing some speed work during this time.

    Today's run was a 72 minute Fartlek progression. 10min warmup jog, then increasing rounds of X minutes @threshold with 1minute ez pace recovery between rounds. Progression was 2x's @ 3min "on":1min "off" , [email protected] 4:1; [email protected] 5:1; [email protected] 6:1, [email protected] 8:1; 10 minute cooldown.

    Tried to negative split the second half intervals, so this was a challenging run.

    Bike and swim tomorrow.

    I just started swimming a few weeks ago. While I don't have everything down as far as proper form yet, so I'm slow, but enjoying every minute. I swam 30 laps today (I count a lap as one way). I mix it up between using the float board and crawl and freestyle strokes. It takes me about 50 minutes. Improving every time. Woohoo!

    Super easy day. 6K on the rowing machine. Easy-ish paced. Have golf league tonight if it doesn't rain and I've been horrid the last couple of weeks. I'm partnered up as a sub with my daughter's partner, who is like a 4 handicap (legit, though 99% of the people in the league cheat like no tomorrow!).

    Hoping I can get back to mid 40s for 9 holes, which for me, is good for now. Last week I shot like a 56. Nothing worked. Driving, fairway irons, chipping, putting -- it was all pretty much consistently bad!

    That's terrific! Swimming is a great total body workout.

    Working on proper form first is a smart way to do it. Speed and endurance will come as your form improves.

    Tuesday
    I worked until 3.30 a.m. due to a slightly bonkers work deadline. I managed a 10 mile walk after dinner, so it wasn't a complete write off for exercise

    Wednesday
    I lifted over lunch, doing:
    Overhead press, 35 kgs, 3 sets of 5
    Bench, 2 sets of 5 and 1 of 10, 55 kgs

    Thursday
    My first work meeting was at 7.30 a.m.; I finished at around 8 p.m.. So I left it too late to go to a climbing gym. So I had a climb on my garden wall. It was my first time on it for ages. It was good fun, I managed an hour. (The woody is more intense than gyms, to long sessions are harder to achieve.) It took a while to get used to it, but once I was warmed up I was in OK form.

    I am going paddleboarding in just a few minutes. I will either have the time of my life or die. Pretty sure it'll be the former :P

    Yesterday: 1hr on the bike trainer - Cadence ladders and some simple endurance. Swim was 2600yds, including 4 x500's.

    Today: Perfect conditions for the long ride. Sunny and low humidity. Four of us went out for 3:45:00 (55miles) doing the "Three Dam Tour" of local reservoirs. Plenty of climbing on the way out, but fast conditions on the return ride. Followed the ride with a 30 minute run.
    This is Saville Dam. hchs647xeaf0.jpg

    6.9k rowing the quad with a fun line-up: A former Big 10 champion rower in stroke, a recent-graduate former collegiate varsity coxswain who's a great rower in 2 seat, my rowing buddy J. in 3 seat, and me in bow.

    It was really too steamy for high intensity (close to 90% humidity first thing); despite that, we did some intervals, 7.5 x (10 hard strokes, 10 moderate strokes), in honor of J.'s 75th birthday today, then went out for brunch and beer to celebrate.

    Yep. Time of my life. Good workout but also must fun I've had doing anything except maybe horseback riding and it's close.

    Human powered boats are good. Really good. I might be prejudiced. 😉
