    Four days of rowing. Not like @AnnPT77 rowing in a shell; rowing a 15' raft full of gear and a passenger. The first day was a bit of an adventure. One of our boats flipped and we had to chase it for a mile before we could un-flip it. The second day was short and glorious and we had a LONG afternoon in my favorite camp in the whole canyon. Day three was a long 20 mile day with headwind. The row out the last day was just an hour and a half with some wind.

    I did a short hike on the day we had so much time. I got a tick deeply embedded in my waist. We got "most" of it out.... We ate and ate and ate. I only gained a couple pounds. I baked a cake in a Dutch oven on the first night. Fun stuff.

    Every time we got to camp, we had to unload all our gear, set up our kitchen, and then put it all back together in the morning, so there was plenty of carrying. That one site I love so much is a big carry up a steep hill, but it's worth it.

    We only saw two bears. One was a LARGE cinnamon colored bear, and almost directly across the river was a much smaller 200-pound black one. We smelled the sweet aroma of Mock Orange blossoms often. Native azalea were in bloom as were some gorgeous yellow native irises that only grow in a small area in southwest Oregon (Iris innominata).

    I'll unload the truck and get things cleaned today and get ready for the next adventures.

    10 min. walk with the dog; then at the gym: 11 min. on the Helix Trainer; 6 min. rowing machine (not like Ann, but you know, something), then 20 min. various free weight arm exercises.

    A friend is visiting from out of town, staying in an AirBnb--we see each other every 2 years after having been BFFs in high school and college years ago, in another state. And I invited said friend to come over for lunch earlier today but instead she's shopping and eating lunch down town with her son (5 min. from my house) and is going to come over much later, after the wedding she came into town for. Maybe I should just shrug this off, but I feel ridiculously hurt, undervalued, wondering why she's here at all, etc.

    3.14 mile walk. 15:30 average pace. It's getting hot and sunny earlier in the day. I might have to change my walking time. OR - go to a shady park.

    I’ve been doing 7 miles on the NuStep at level 4
    I bumped it to level 5 a few days ago.
    Tonight I am trying 10 miles as a stretch goal.

    I think I might actually make it!

    It took me 2 and a half hours, but by gosh I did it!

    So in addition to the weight machine workouts I post here, I also shoot for at least 10k steps per day. 7500 at an absolute minimum. I am averaging just over 13k steps per day so far this month and about 9k steps per day this year, which includes multiple weeks where I was quite ill (I had a 3 week stretch in January where I had 3200 steps/day, then 929 the following week, then 5400 the week after that, and then a 2 week stretch at the beginning of April with 2600 and 2800 steps per day average).

    The cool part about having out of town company is being a tourist in my own corner of the world. Yesterday we toured a cave reputed to contain lost gold from some Spanish conquistadors who traveled through the area in the 1500s.

    Saturday, the storm cleared off just in time to let us row. Someone else was willing to bow (take steering responsibility), and I sat stroke (the rower in stern that everyone can see, responsible for keeping the right steady rhythm). I'm not a natural at this. :D I think it went OK, though. It was a row followed by a coffee then lunch moveable party for a club member who's returning home to Istanbul in a week.

    I didn't row on Friday; I was there, but there were 5 of us, and it was quite windy/choppy, so I volunteered to cox a quad. (Cox = coxswain, person who steers the boat with lines to a rudder, so no rower needs to worry about watching over their shoulder so they can avoid hitting stuff. ;) ) I'll probably need to cox in our learn-to-row class coming up in June, so this was good practice with more-skilled rowers.

    There was one newer person in the boat (from last season's class), so we did some drills, including some eyes-closed rowing. (Most boats row better eyes closed, if not absolute beginners.)
    10 min. walk with the dog; then at the gym: 11 min. on the Helix Trainer; 6 min. rowing machine (not like Ann, but you know, something), then 20 min. various free weight arm exercises.

    @DiscusTank5: Hey! No shade to you, even from you. :flowerforyou:

    You do really nice mixed workouts - good stuff, and still in rehab mode besides. I'm almost close to rowing obsessed, have been for 20+ years. In particular, I rarely do strength work, and that's admittedly a Bad Thing. 🤷

    Leg Day today for me:

    Warm up:
    High knees - 30secs
    Body weight Squats
    Wide Stance Shift

    Sumo Squats - 4 x 6
    Hip Thrusts - 4 x 6
    Bulgarian Lunge - 4 x 6
    Wall Sit (with a weight plate) - 1min
    Close Squats - 3 x 8
    Plank - 1 min, 30sec
    Stepper - 10mins

    Not too tired after that, probably should have pushed myself a bit more... but might feel it in the next up coming days.

    Thanks so much, Ann! I need to work on celebrating my wins, not comparing myself to others or even my old, pre-cancer diagnosis self.

    On that note: I just got in from a 29 min. walk around the block with hubs, son, and dog. It used to take me 25 minutes but at least I got out there at all, and after a tiring trip to Walmart at that.
