    You guys are all so impressive with your weight reps, paddling, and scuba.

    My much more humble gym workout today:
    16 min. exercise bike while watching NCIS solve crime. :)
    5 min. quad stretches
    16 min. of walking across campus and back from my car
    much earlier: the usual walk with my dog

    But @DiscusTank5, the fact that you're rehabbing from a very, very difficult passage in your life, working hard at it, doing a variety of things, making such good progress . . . I think that's REALLY impressive.

    Back on the river today, rowing bow of the double with one of my favorite double partners: Usual distance, just a jot under 7k. It was a little choppy with some rollers at our turning point near the West-most bridge, almost close to scary but not quite. Otherwise, a beautiful day for a row. There was a quad of other rowing buddies out with us, with one of the club's newer folks in 2-seat, so they were going a bit slower to help her get accustomed to synchronizing with others.

    A little walk later, but not much.

    Upper Body

    Bench Press 3x10
    DB Bench Press 3x10
    BB Row 4x10 (2 sets pronated, 2 sets supinated)
    Pulldown 3x10 (1 set each hands over, under, neutral-grip)
    Face Pull 3x10
    Cable Lateral Raise 3x10
    Preacher Curl 3x10 (3-second negatives)
    Cable Pushdown 3x10 (5-second negatives)
    Perloff Press 3x15sec

    Been weeks since I did this workout, been doing a full-body most weeks due to work requirements. But this week I get to lift four times again, so dusted off this bad boy and went to work. Tomorrow will be my second leg day of the week, looking forward to it.

    I finished my scuba course. We only had one skill left to tick off (a blindfolded shutdown, which was actually a doddle.) So I am now a qualified sidemount diver with shiny kit; it worked well and hopefully I can use it soon.

    I went for a climb afterwards. I started of really badly, finding a v2 in my warm up I couldn't do. I then actually got quite a lot of v3 and v4s, so I came back to the v2 and found it wasn't too bad. I was trying a heel hook on my failed attempts; using less finesse and more brute force and ignorance solved the issue.

    Today I did a little over 18,000 steps and a Zumba class. I typically try to get 10,000-20,000 steps a day, of I'm not doing Zumba I'm now doing 30 minutes of bike as well as my steps and if it is a Zumba day I do my steps and Zumba. But I do Zumba two-three times a week.

    Legs today:

    Leg press 3x10 (130lbs)
    Calf raise 3x10 (110lbs)
    Leg curl 3x10 (105lbs)
    Leg extension 3x10 (65lbs)
    Led adduction 3x10 (135lbs)
    Leg abduction 3x10 (135lbs)
    Abdominal (crunch style) 3x10 (125lbs) plus 1x10 (105lbs, which was too light)

    I've only been going to the gym for like 3 months and the leg extension machine kills me, as you can see by its weight comparative to the rest, lol.

    Thanks Ann--I appreciate the encouragement.
    And @watts6151 -- I had to look up Wesley Vissers. That guy is a mountain! Geez.

    Last night after a parents' meeting at the school, I stopped by the gym for 15 min. on the rowing machine. Today's workout, if you can call it that, has consisted of a couple of walks in the park with my dog.

    I bought a phone holder for my NuStep.
    Last night I did 7.3 miles first watching some cat in China walk around their neighborhood with a GoPro type camera on his collar.

    Then I watched some human walking around Brooklyn New York.

    And then I watched a really lovely drag queen chatting with people and throwing shade at the trolls. Very entertaining!

    Yeah. Exercise should be fun? Right?

    An hour and 45 min. cleaning stained glass and other windows and doors at my church, on and off a folding chair a gazillion--well, 20 or so times. Honestly, it FELT like a workout. And I was sweating buckets. Arkansas' summer humidity has kicked in.

    A quick climb (2 hours). It was fun, I think I have improved a little recently.
