    40 minutes on the rower outside -- chilly this AM (around 40 degrees), then 40 more on the AirBike. 1150 calories or so. Worked on the yard for 3 hours after.

    After a rest day (and hyper-indulge-y but fairly protein-rich potluck with my mixed-media arts/crafts group) yesterday, another 8,671m on the C2 rowing machine, 2:27.1 average pace, 20spm. Again shooting for 20 spm or under, 10m+ per stroke. 29% Z3, 50% Z4, including CD & the breaks + row-in/out.

    Mike: Hit at least 51F here in MI today . . . I rowed inside anyway. :lol:;)

    My stepson is coming for X-Mas for the first time and we are supposed to have 3 days of rain and Cincy (where we're from and he still lives) is supposed to be 50 and sunny! Oh well, this is as bad as it gets here. In Jan/Feb, we'll be back up in the low 60s again. I was so cold this AM! Amazing how the body adjusts to warmer climate and doesn't like cold any longer. Same stepson is getting married in Feb in Cincy. Looking forward to the wedding but not the weather!

    Lots of great meters Ann!

    Erging because of dock maintenance and a ton of rain. Around 14,300m including warming up and cooling down. 12,102m until I finish the Holiday Challenge.

    You and Ann made me want to look at how far off I am - I had that 10 days off from that cyst under my arm (I think like the first five days or so of the challenge, maybe longer). Even with that, I'm only 16K away from making it to 100K. Might be achievable after all -- 10K today and 6K tomorrow is very doable.

    I went bouldering for 100 minutes. This was quite an average session, although I got one harder one towards the end. (I used my head against an overhang as third point of contact. So I get zero marks for style, some marks for pragmatism.)

    Just my usual weights workout and a short easy 4k run to loosen up from yesterday's 12k

    5,493 C2 rowing machine meters, again completing the C2 200k Holiday Challenge, plus a little nibble extra, and one day before the last day.

    Not shooting for anything in particular this workout (except adequate technique), just trying to bash through it, because my schedule made it most workable to do it fasted, which I hate. For the 4k of work pieces, 2:28.4 pace, at 22spm. Z3 (48%), only a little Z4 (3%), rest lower.

    I think I'm figuring out that I dislike fasted workouts so much because my heart rate is a bit lower at the same watt output (which seems like it might be a good thing, but no): It just feels worse (harder). Last night's first 2 2k pieces were about the same split/watts as today's two, but my heart rate was a little lower today, and it felt harder. Ugh.

    Last week, I hit 830 Garmin active minutes, 5.5x the default goal of 150 (which I assume is based on governmental recommendations for 150 minutes of moderate activity per week, or 75 of vigorous). Garmin counts moderate minutes as 1 "active minute" each, vigorous minutes as 2 "active minutes" each. This week . . . I won't. :lol:

    It's calendar time for a volume drop, for me. Li'l ol' lady only does this stuff for fun, mostly.

    Merry Christmas (or holiday of your choice) to all!

    12,102m to finish off the holiday challenge, but first there was much faffing around with the slides. The floor in the room that I was in has a slight slant, and thus. There are multiple pieces of carpet scraps specifically for dealing this issue. If we don't include the first 2,500m when I was dealing with that, my average split was around 2:12

    16k is totally doable. Totally totally doable.

    80 minutes bouldering.

    This was an OK session. The gym was very crowded - it seemed to be a popular Christmas Eve use. I worked on a lot of overhanging and cave routes, and got pumped relatively quickly; hence the shorter duration of this session.
