    A long run today, but not as long as I intended: 7km in 52min22 (instead of the full hour I intended).
    A slightly off day today, perhaps I've been pushing a bit too hard by working out every day the last 4 weeks. Or maybe it's just my TOM announcing itself. Tomorrow will tell!

    Still sidelined by my pulled thigh muscle. So I did some "ibuprofen-ups" and "ice presses".

    *sigh* I was really starting to love the endorphin boost of my elliptical workouts. Not to mention the extra calories to eat. Oh well. I'll get back there eventually.

    Back to the fake 10k + 3' CD stationary bike, the usual Z2-3 (mostly Z3), maxed at 144bpm again.

    @dralicephd, how's your upper body? There are some surprisingly vigorous upper body workouts on YouTube (for wheelchair athletes, often).

    It stinks not to be able to do the usual stuff . . . but I get that once one gets attuned to how good exercise makes one feel, not being able to do it can lead to a case of the grumps. Sympathies!

    Well.... one shoulder is pretty messed up (previously dislocated), so I have to be super careful. Despite that, you are right. I will look into some adaptive stuff. Thanks for the tip. :smile: Anything to get moving again, right?

    10K on the rower @ an easy pace. HR only toward the last couple minutes exceeded 70% of max.

    Another attempt at a long run, more successful than yesterday: 8.5km in 61 minutes.
    My watch seems to be having trouble correctly recognizing my pace/cadence on the treadmill (or maybe my arm movements are not very regular), slightly annoying how much I have to correct my total distance, which throws off Runalyze's analysis. It is what it is, I guess, the only alternative is to run outdoors 🙂
