    Saturday - still feeling the aftereffects of my migraine so just went for two 30-40 minute walks.

    Sunday - finally felt better, went for my usual horse ride for an hour. Didn't go crazy but it was good for my soul :) pony cuddles are always the best.

    Today - spinning class this evening, didn't push as hard as usual but still feel much better for getting back at it.

    Yesterday I helped at a club event from early until after noon but otherwise called it a rest day. I used the elliptical this morning for 17 minutes. Just before lunch, I ran on the treadmill for a half hour and at the 30 minute mark just barely got up to the same peak heart rate as during a 20 minute run last week. Progress.

    Did 1.44 miles today on my walk including going up the steep hill next to my house to start out then walking all through one section of my neighborhood and back for a different view.

    Taking a recovery approach to this week. My wife and I are heading out for a 3 night camping trip at the beach. We're planning to do some cycling and kayaking as well as plenty of hanging around. I'm also going to continue learning to jump rope. That's been a big dose of humility so far, lol.

    My walk was 1.41 miles today and I felt pretty good through most of it. I noticed my left leg was a little more sore because that was the side with the driveways (which puts that foot at a weird angle every time I cross a driveway and the houses are close together here so lots of driveways right on top of each other) but it didn't bother me too much. I was lost in thought most of the time and didn't even realize I was almost home at the end.

    This marks two straight weeks of walking at least a mile every day. I'm thinking of adding some wall pushups. I used to try to do 5 every time I used the bathroom which can be quite a few, especially with my morning coffee, lol. But maybe a solid three times a day with ten wall push-ups each time. Just to add some upper body stuff.

    Swimming early this morning, 50m lanes, 1800m all as 100m repeats with lots of rest. Just adding up some meters to get reacquainted with the swim. Shortly after getting home, I used the elliptical for 15 minutes at an easy rate just to loosen up. I've been eager to get back to some kind of cycling but lately its either been too smokey or severe thunder storm warnings. So to stay inside, I went to the gym this afternoon and spun the pedals on a stationary bike for an hour. I've yet to get the cycling trainer set up in the basement again but soon.

    I went climbing yesterday. It was a pretty poor session, although it was good fun. I did flash a v4 slab, which was truly terrifying. (Most v4s I get are probably softly graded. This one actually felt quite hard; I made some good decisions en route.)

    I lifted today, doing:
    Hangboarding, quite light as I had an A4 pulley injury recently. (I ignored it, and it seems to have gone away.)
    Finger curls. Again light, I went to 40 kgs.
    Bench, light (notice a theme?), 49 kgs, 3 sets of 10.
    Squat, light, 60 kgs, 3 sets of 8.

    I have been slacking on the reports!

    Monday, 7/17, rowed a double with a guy I've never rowed double with before. Silly-big weight differential (he's 210, I'm 130), and the boat's rigged weird so I have to row bow (usually you'd put the heavier person in bow). It was a little rocky - literally! - at first, but we made some adjustments including foot position (the shoes are attached to the boat, but you can move them closer to stern or bow) . . . and it ended up fine.

    Yesterday, just a short and lovely meandering walk in a local garden with a friend.

    Today, 7/19, I rowed a double again with the same guy. Right after, I and another club member moved a bunch of boats/oars displaced when workers installed a French drain at the boathouse. (I think the robin that had been nesting in our oar rack was scared off, sadly!). Tonight, I volunteered at open rowing, but merely carried a few boats, and did a tiny row to demo/teach river turns for one of the new rowers. (River turn = back on one side, row on the other . . . but don't think of it that way because that overcomplicates things!).

    I did the early morning 15 minutes elliptical yesterday but got distracted (or lazy) and didn't do a planned run. There are other commitments later today so if any workouts were happening then I had to start early. That got me to the pool in time to use the 50m lanes again. 2100m in a few longer continuous swims. Then shower, change, home, a quick piece of fruit, and change again to run on the treadmill for 20 minutes. All done before 8:30.

    Went on a slightly longer walk today in another part of my neighborhood where there wasn't such a steep incline on the way home. Did 1.48 miles but my knee was bothering me the whole time. It was doing well for a while but now it's back to aching and creaking really loud. At least the smoke cleared sometime last night so I didn't have to worry about that.
