    yesterday elliptical underdesk 44.34 miles (106:00, 1070 cals) and arm bike 5:57 (25 cals, 175 revolutions). Our poor little cat did finally pass so may have chance to get back to better schedule.

    I had been on "inactive" status at my gym since April. I call it "active" status - active enough I don't have time to get to the gym. I started early this year since I spent the entire month of April below the rim of Grand Canyon on a private raft trip with seven other people rowing four big rafts. Then it was on to hiking, disc golf, canoeing, kayaking, and mushroom hunting. Now with darker days, it's time to get back after it.

    I'm easing into it of course. So easy that my first visit was just to check on my locker and sit in the sauna. Yeah. I know. I went back, and I was stoked to see that there was almost nobody in the pool, so I swam 1000 yards. It felt good, and I could have swam another 1000 pretty easily, but I really do want to ease back in so I don't overdo it. Sooner or later I'll get back to strength work - I think I need it.

    Repeat of 35 minutes stationary bike with 3 minutes cool down, 24' Z3, 8.5' Z4, remainder below. This took me up to 213 Garmin intensity minutes for the week, no longer worst week of the past year (more than 3 other weeks this year, tied with two others).

    Also sent out an email ending my regular on-water rowing group for the season. Going to have to accept the rowing machine into rotation again soon. :|

    It took about two years but I finally lost all the needed weight. Right now, I want to maintain 133 pounds and gain muscle. I'm taking it slow so I won't overwhelm my muscles and stop working out. I have a history of giving up. But I keep trying. This is what I did today:

    Full body workout at the gym, started incorporating copenhagens which are killing my core but in a good way. Also upped weights as of last week and it's tough! Seem to have tweaked something in my knee so might rest legs for a few days.

    Leg day:

    Squats
    1x5 at last week’s working set weight for 8.
    2x8 with 20 more lbs. So 2 “working sets” but that set to 5 was pretty tough. Going hard on my calorie deficit, so something had to give on volume or intensity.

    3x12 Leg curls

    3x12 Leg extensions

    Elliptical, one hour, intervals - 819 calories

    Ahh, my last cardio day during a cut phase. Next week begins my bulk phase, so will have lots more energy to burn. (Wait, this bulk phase coincides with Thanksgiving, Christmas and such? How amazing a coincidence!)

    Well now look at that - that's perfectly executed timing if I've ever seen it!! 🙌🏻🙌🏻
