    My workout Lol :) Lifting 75lbs steel chassis for two hours. Discovered my strength has improved the last few weeks as I no longer need to shoulder the weight :)

    An active rest day for me. LISS cardio (2 mile walk), a 15 mins. barre-inspired workout and lots of deep stretching this morning. No PM workout.

    Feeling great!!!!

    Easy Z2/Z3 spin for 50 minutes.

    Recovery/step back week which I am due for. No hard stuff this week. Huge overload week last week at the end of a 4/5 week build. Felt wrecked Mon/Tues but starting to feel better today. Excited for a week of lower key exercise.

    Stuck on a stubborn weight plateau. Although weight is weirdly consistent (*exactly* the same every day).

    Hope to get 45 minutes of walking in rest of day.

    I did my morning yoga and then ran 3 miles after work. I’m getting back into running (a little) and I felt powerful today:)

    Today I focused on chest and triceps and then ran a mile.

    SameSameSame 9,689 C2 rowing machine meters (inc. row in/out and CD meters); easy to moderate steady state (2:31.8 @ 19spm for the core 8k); overall 58% Z3, 21% Z4, remainder lower.

    Feel reasonably good about HR drop from 151 peak down to sub-aerobic 125 in less than 2 minutes entirely while still steadily rowing the cool-down (albeit at around a super-slow 3:00 split ;) , then to 101 quickly when I stopped. ).

    I played underwater hockey for 1 hour. It was good, although I only got 3 goals. I was a lot less drained than the previous time I played, 6 months ago.

    Spin instructor out of town, turned out no sub found. Another guy and I cycled for a while (no music, so more LISS/MISS (mostly Z3) vs. usual varied intensity intervals. Broke off after about 35 minutes to get home early and start on the 8,698 rowing machine meters, since I have a doctor's appointment early afternoon to get to. Rowing also mostly Z3, 2:35.3 @ 21 for the 8k actual workout.

    Feeling very low energy (short sleep again), but HR seems to be tending a few beats lower for the same split, compared to when I started indoor season a few weeks back.

    I'm playing Wallyball tonight. 1 hour with no breaks is a kick as work out. I can burn about 500 in that hour.

    I wanted to get in this months ITC (inter club challenge) in early for my indoor rowing club. They picked a 2K TT, likely because many of them are in some high end races this month, including the BRIC (British Rowing Indoor Championship). Great for them, not so great for me! I hate 2K TT, especially when I just took 10 days off with that outpatient procedure (a cyst removal under my arm).

    Anyway, was a beautiful day, was debating doing an easier 4 X 2K set, but ended up going out faster so just went for it on the first set. Not much compared to where I was two years ago (low 7:00s), but first time under 8 minutes in over a year on a 2K, so I guess I'll take that. Did 20 minutes slower afterward as a C/D. No warmup, which is kind of stupid, but mentally I just wanted to get this one done. The other required row this month is a sprint set, which are fairly fun to do.

    First pic is the view of the mountain with the snow on it from where I sit on the deck. Today was around 60 degrees and sunny. Snow where I like it -- 15 miles away up on the mountain.

    I saw the band New Model Army, and was in the mosh pit for 2 hours. I got 15,000 steps in at the gig (according to my phone), and will be bruised everywhere tomorrow. Good times.

    Usual stretching... 60 min plus some activation/wake-up/warm-up exercises (planks etc)
    And for fun also, surfing about an hour
