    Hard interval row today 8 X 500m/1' (one minute rest). Did a 2K Warmup and Cool Down. Same workout as last week and had a modest .4 second improvement on the average (2:01.4 last week/2:01.0 this week).

    One minute isn't much rest for these but my HR dropped below 140 until the last two reps within 60 seconds. Just would like to get much faster on these. I was doing these in the mid to low 1:50s just two years ago (and 12 reps, not 8).

    Cut my volume of all lifting sessions. I haven’t been eating quite enough and my workouts have been suffering. Just an hourish of upper body today.

    Mon 6/1

    When you say sets to failure, do you mean you did 32 chin ups in a single set? If so, that is scarily impressive. (It's impressive is split over multiple sets, but way beyond where I'm at for a single set - I think my PB is 16).

    well, I wish HAHA I can do about 15 in a row now on a good day...usually it's around 12

    Had three days of no “workouts” due to work. Just stretching throughout.

    But today!....30 min yoga, 30 min stairs/calisthenics, 40 min full body dumbbells.

    10.4 mile bike ride around and through my community. Was a bit sore from running 8.4 miles Sunday and this easy ride helped loosen up the legs before tomorrow's Global Running Day workout.

    Tue 6/2

    MORNING
    21.25 miles on mountain bike trails. Vigorous with many inclines.

    Today was the longest continuous ride I've had on the trails so far. 90 minutes and averaged around 14 mph. which is good on these trails for me. That will be it today, giving the rest of my body a break.

    Restarted training in June after a month off. This first week is a testing week, with 2 run tests and 2 bike tests to check my fitness. The results will be a stiff reminder of how quickly speed is lost during a layoff.

    Today was an easy mile warm up, then a 5k run test, which hurt like hell. Tomorrow will be just as much fun with a full 20 minute FTP bike test on my schedule.

    I'm a Tone it Up girl on Week 4 of the Summer Tone Up! I love the energy from these challenges.

    Today was:
    30 minute Ab-focused HIIT workout
    20 minute Arm lifting workout
    1.5 mile neighborhood walk

    Tomorrow will be a Yoga-style HIIT workout with a 3 mile run!

    *11k steps throughout the day
    * Lower body 20 minute workout. The first of a 4-week split training routine from a Men's Health book I've had and loved since 2007 or so.

    I climbed for an hour. It was brilliant.

    I learned a new thing - the pogo. Have arms and one free leg form a rough right angled triangle. The second leg is off the wall. You swing it, and use the momentum of the swing to go up the wall. If you swing the left leg, move the left arm.

    More info and a cheesy video are here:

    we're supposed to go for a hike tomorrow so I figured I'd do the easier/no impact stuff today so I'm not hobbling around in the hills from being sore/tired

    Celebrated Global Running Day today...s1jdhhvcc69h.png

    Another boring hour row this AM on the deck (76 degrees at finish, so not too bad). HR got just a bit away from me at the end, but not too bad. All at 74% max or less, 71% of Max Avg. Just under 2:30 pace, 12.05K

    Did a weak lift last night. Just really wasn't feeling it. Made Pizza for dinner and ate too much! Managed 75 pushups, many single arm pressups and some body weight and KB leg work. The row yesterday was pretty hard leg work already but trying to double with the rowing 3X a week on lifting.

    Did Yoga last night, surfing today, and planning a 46 mile bike ride this Saturday. Knees going to be sore AF.

    4 mile run this morning. I hate getting up early to run but it’s the only way to beat the heat
  • alexmosealexmose Member Posts: 793 Member Member Posts: 793 Member
    Didn’t eat enough carbs yesterday so just some easy walks today.

    Never underestimate the exercise / fitness value of yard work. I live in central Florida and we're now in full-blown summer heat & humidity, and now into our rainy season, meaning that my grass and hedges require near-constant attention - it's a workout, for sure. I probably burn as many calories during an hour or two of yard work as I do a ~6 mile run.

    Did the first of two bike fitness tests tonight. The session was 60 minutes, which consisted of 30 minutes of a heavy warmup, then a 20 min FTP test and a cool down. The test always hurts, but my results were ok given a month layoff.

    So it's one run and one bike test done with another of each coming later this week. Next up is a 10k run test on Friday.
