    Foot-operated bilge pump. Even better if an engineer can use all the power you're already generating to run it while underway.

    Upper Power

    Bench Press 5x5
    Cable Row 5x5
    DB Press <superset> DB Row 5x5
    Seated BB OHP 3x5

    Had a revelation overnight when I realized that throughout my powerlifting days, when I didn't have problems with my elbows, I rarely if ever did isolation work on bis/tris, certainly never using heavy weights. So for the next few power days, I'm dropping off the arm work to see how my left elbow feels about the change.

    Half Marathon on Saturday

    Best of luck! I used to dream of completing a marathon, or at least a half, back when I ran 5k's for fun in my school days. Afraid those dreams disappeared a couple decades ago for me, so I'll just live vicariously through people like you, thanks very much! lol

    What kind of pain is it? I had golfers' elbow for a couple of years and it got to a point where even resting it for weeks didn't do anything. Forearm work, especially wrist curls, fixed it completely.

    Yesterday did a 30 minute run on the treadmill. Felt great but kept it short because wanted to be fresh for lifting.

    Today was weights:
    1. Warmup
    2. Barbell back squats - 5x5
    3. Dips- 5x7
    4. Chinups- 5x6
    5. Deadlifts- 5x3
    I was thinking about doing more but this was so nice and simple, I didn't want to ruin it. And I am just trying to limit lifting volume while I am running more *and* on a significant deficit. But it all felt great today. Now I am betting used to back squats again these all felt smooth and easy.

    Big changes coming up that will affect workouts and diet. I have been based in West Africa for the last three years. At the end of the week I am moving to a new posting in Thailand (in Bangkok). This will mean way better gyms and food options, although also more tempting to over-eat or drink. There is a fight gym over the road from where I will be staying, so I might also start taking Muay Thai and BJJ classes. That would replace cardio and probably most lifting, if I do it.

    Last November I developed pain in my right elbow which I determined to be tennis elbow-like, swore off lifting completely for about 4 months, elbow has been right as rain ever since. But a few weeks back my left elbow started showing the same early symptoms. I'm really loathe to stop lifting completely again, so I've been investigating possible sources of the pain and modifications I can make to my lifting regimen to work around the issue without stopping cold turkey. The pain has been receding, so hopefully whatever I've been doing has been working.

    I cancelled rowing today: We had snow (some of which actually stuck) and temperatures several degrees below freezing. The rowing itself might've been OK (though risky), but group-carrying a roughly 150 pound boat on an icy dock isn't very fun or safe.

    I did get in an easy effort 30 minute stationary bike ride, 3 minute cool down. Bike said 102W average including CD, theoretically 8.62 miles at 15.5mph, more Z2 than Z3 (and nothing above).

    I also did my usually-unmentioned random stuff like side leg raises, squat holds, and some shoulder-opening stretches throughout the day.

    Yesterday, my only exercise-ish activity was a walk with a friend for about 3 miles on the local trail system, mostly along a river and around a lake.
