    Missing the AirBike already. 60 minutes on the Indoor rower today. I have to really work at getting the HR down. It might mean (for now) 16 SPM work. Obviously, this was too high of HR for a Steady state row.

    It's OK because I have four or five days off planned next week to go to San Diego.

    Dunno about you, but I always have trouble committing to that > than that 2:30, however necessary. It's like it's a speed bump . . . ! :lol:

    Have fun in SD!

    Thanks Ann, I was working hard on my slooow recoveries and picturing the gravity just slowly take me back. At 16 SPM, that I did some of, I will say it makes you really pay more attention to each stroke.

    My wife and I adopt shelter dogs and cats (we have six right now including our sons). Our three dogs are at Camp Bow Wow as we speak getting acclimated to dog play. We hardly ever take vacations but this dog place is right across the street and the doggies get to play nearly all day long with other dogs. We are probably more overprotective of our animals than we were our kids!

    I got another 90 minute bouldering session in.

    I introduced my little brother to the wall. He loved it, and I'd looking into climbing regularly.

    Hot, humid, little to no breeze, bright sun . . . easy pace. ;)

    10.6km in a quad. Super glassy water but a really difficult to deal with current which was only really an issue with docking (part of what made yesterday's docking experience awful). Got noticeably better at squaring and feathering with my fingers (I need to try different grip sizes as well) and spent the last quarter of practice getting more length at the front end of my stroke which I apparently was also successful at doing.

    Do you have a 12"-ish hunk of suitable-diameter dowel at home to practice with? Can help.

    Just for the LOL: One of my coaches described the motion as like scritching a tiny dog between the ears with your fingertips. ;)

    Presumably your more length at the front end is coming from more length at the back end . . . .

    We're working on, among other things, getting me to get more reach at the catch, so to get my hands out further past the gunnels. Part of it is a confidence issue and part of it is potentially an equipment issue. My layback is actually pretty good, in part because when I'm rowing with the men's team I'm the shortest in the boat (I'm 5' 8") so I had to learn how to "row tall" pretty quickly at both the front and back ends.

    I rowed 4,600ish meters in a single this morning for my private lesson. The primary goal was getting more comfortable in a single but we also worked on the finger stuff (it's getting better...) and my reach at the catch (see above). The person who coached me, the main sculling coach, wants me to try oars with a shorter inboard length to see if that changes anything for the better - I suspect it will.

    I apparently am progressing along well - and save for not squaring with my wrists, nothing I'm doing won't work itself out with more time in a single. I've also gotten much better at steering. Oh also, the rec single was deemed "too easy" for me by my coach and apparently we do have a second single that is in working order, the right weight rating for me, and not exceedingly narrow.

    And for non rowing on the water people:

    8/21/2019 - during the hour before noon at park -

    Burpees x 5 plus two-hand KB swings with 24kg KB x 15 every 1:30 - completed 20 rounds (100 burpees and 300 KB swings) in 29:20 - average HR = 151 bpm (84 percent) maximum HR = 165 bpm (92 percent) total 371 calories according to Garmin.

    Note: burpees had a push-up and a jump with hands overhead for each rep. Hadn't done them in a long time, didn't know what I was in store for; they were easier than the last time I did this workout due to spillover benefit of running.

    SS indoor rowing again. Bike parts come in today or tomorrow. Just have to figure out how to put it back together.

    Did 20 minute row X 2 today and then a 10 minute one with strapless C/D. Man I've gotten bad at strapless work. Not sure what happened with that one screen shot but it says 13 SPM -- it was really 17. Likely because I thought I'd do an hour straight through and then reconsidered and broke it down, stopping the original row after 20 minutes. Likely that's the reason it went all wonky on me. Second row didn't store to ErgData (my workout log) so that's aggravating. Said I need to update my firmware on the rower. That's been long overdue anyway.

    All added up to around 10.5K meters if you count the C/D strapless.

    1.5 mile morning walk with my son and the dogs. This involved all sorts of variety, such as Simon Says, walking in circles to get dizzy, etc. Everything is more fun with a 9 year old:)

    Tonight- 60 minute Krav Maga class

    I love this style of training. You get a ton of volume and still stay kinda fresh...

    0.5 mile walk and dynamic warmup, followed by 1.5 miles of various hill sprints and other races. My son sets the course, and I follow! Great workout and a fun time with my boy:)
