What Was Your Work Out Today?
I climbed on my garden wall. I was way off form - it was a bad session.
Gyms in the UK reopened. I went climbing.
It was an OK session. It was definitely not brilliant, but I got most of the mid-difficulty level climbs I tried. I didn't really try any hard ones - I will work my way back.
It was just under two hours, which I was pleased with. (I expected my endurance to be very poor.)3
Got a late start on the workout because I set up my huge floor fan in the garage. Man, it's great! Will make the garage much more tolerable this Summer.
Did 30 minutes of supersetting, then 100m X 8 on the rower. Got down in the 1:37 range or so at the best. 175 DF -- highest drag factor I've used in around 3 years. Felt good, especially for right after a lift. Did around a 3K C/D on the rower after that. 800 calories or so for the hour.1
4.2 mile run. Feeling tired, but will do a rebounding session tomorrow and some isometric exercises.1

I kind of wasn't feeling the rowing tonight, kept having to pay attention to hold my usual pace for moderate SS workouts (not a big thing, maybe just slip by a couple of seconds vs. usual 500m split). Funnily enough, I ended up with HR a few beats higher than that pace would usually cost, so maybe intuition about RPE is meaningful. 😆
There was around an hour and a half of fairly vigorous yard work in my day, too, not typical for me, bend/squat/lift/carry kind of stuff to do Spring clean-up in perennial beds, so maybe just that 2% more fatigued than usual before the rowing workout, dunno. NBD, just interesting to an introspective type.1
It's amazing just how broken I felt yesterday. It was the impact of gym climbing for the first time in 6 months, and I suspect mainly the result of a couple of falls at the end of the session. (I was at the top of a 3.5 metre wall for both falls, as I'd decided steep overhangs were the ideal way of ending a long session. I got the top the second time, but was too pumped to make it down.)
So all I managed yesterday to do was a 6 mile walk.
I feel fixed today, so I aim to lift some weights; and go climbing again tomorrow.3
It’s roughly a 50-55 minute walk to work so I try to do that at a moderate pace to start my day.2
1.6 mile walk during my lunch break and 45 min Rebounder workout this evening, including 18 minutes of isometric exercises.1
60 minutes of cardio. Same ol', same ol' for my Steady State day. 30 minutes on the rower, then 30 on the LateralX.
Only thing slightly different is I've been feeling less drained doing this and in better control of keeping the HR between 60% and 70% max. Nearly the entire workout again was right around 66%/67% of max HR after the first 9 minutes (the HR climbing slowly, like it should). Gorgeous day outside on the deck rowing.
My peace and serenity on the deck ends soon as I'm having 5 to 6 weeks of significant construction on my back yard pool and back deck soon. That will suck. Starts in a few weeks and will last most of May. Will have to move the rower to the garage if it's not too hot there (thus, the fan I set up yesterday -- huge and cool).2
About a 6km walk.2
35' yoga - stretch - foam roll.
5.14mi walk, 3.9mph.
Dumbbells, few light conditioning supersets; + chin-up negatives.
30' stationary bike, easy pace, mostly Z2, a little Z3.
Today, I needed a nap in the middle. 😆2
Just finished fitness blender's toned and curvy workout. Weather's getting really hot here so I am doing less of cardio/HIIT and more of strength training.2
3.1 mile walk.1
Dinner went wrong: too much protein (>30g) caused a crash. No idea why, but it always happens. Just about managed to get out in time, and went for a run and managed 5km, the last km surprisingly fast. Something odd happened there. Now a beer.2
Same routine as yesterday. Replace LateralX with Assault Bike -- 30 on the rower first, then 30 on the AD Pro. Kept the HR in check again (almost all under 70% max and over 60% max). Worked on my playlist during the Assault Bike ride, so the HR was a bit up and down . Playlists are looking better though!
Rooftop yoga this evening. Wife tapped out. Just me and my daughter this time.1
Oh, how to get wasted on the cheap: run all out, get thoroughly dehydrated. Drink a bottle of beer. Ooops!3
