    I also failed in my attempt at a rest day. I still had an arm pump on waking, so climbing felt unwise.

    I did an of yoga in the morning. I did an evening walk, not very far - probably 4 miles. I then lifted a little, doing:

    3 sets of 10, 70 kgs, squat
    2 sets of 8, deadlift, 100 kgs.

    Long(er than usual) hike today.


    Wiped the young dog out so hard she fell asleep ON OUR CONSOLE.

    Well this is the cutest thing I've seen all day! I usually take my pup out for a morning walk with me, but I have a limited time on the days I work, so he stayed home today.

    Suddenly cool (60s F) and *very* windy this morning. Rowed bow in the quad for the usual 7k-ish, but steering was . . . interesting, in the wind. Steering is bow rower's job: The only steering controls are the things you shout at the rowers.

    Pulling the 40-foot boat in alongside the dock ("parking") was particularly challenging. Usually, I take the boat speed way down, aim the bow at the outside corner of the long, narrow dock, then give on oar a little chop at the last second to move the bow-ball alongside rather than on top of the dock, and we glide up parallel with the side of the boat against the side of the dock. None of that works in strong wind. Need to keep the speed for hope of a straight line, and try to estimate how far off the dock to aim in order to blow in parallel to it, as the wind was mostly pushing us away to the downstream direction, but slightly cross-wind to the dock.

    One blessing: There's a strict rule that the other rowers may *not* turn around and look at the dock as we're coming in (it turns the boat, messing up bow's predicted course). Therefore, they have no idea how crazy the line and tactics were, they just know whether it worked or not. (And part of bow's job is to give commands without communicating her level of personal freak-out.) Today, it worked. We came close enough, not exactly parallel but just a slight angle that we could easily adjust once we got hands on the dock. Whew!

    (Super glad we weren't in smaller boats today - not safe!)

    Congrats! That's a major milestone!

    Did 55 minutes or so today (not quite a full hour). Around 7500 meters on the rower, then another 10 minutes or so on the Assault Bike.

    Hit a milestone myself that I didn't realize until today. 10 million meters on the Concept2 rower (officially). I likely hit that a few seasons ago, but these are those that I officially tracked. This is over around 7 or 8 years of rowing, cumulative. Will get some shirt in the mail from them likely.

    Long work day made a tough workout. I think I was almost depleted before I began:

    Squats (deloaded 😓)
    Skipped bench press (😑)
    Bent Over Rows (deloaded and worked on form)

    But I did workout, so there is that...

    * Half hour yoga/stretch/foam roll
    * Quick 10.16mi bike ride before going over to help with learn-to-row.

    At the learn-to-row class, I just carried a few boats/oars, rode in a launch with a coach to take some video, so fun but no workout.

    Bouldering, 90 minutes.

    This felt like a pretty good session, although I got very pumped by the end. My crimping strength is definitely better than before. It was my fourth day climbing out of 6, which is a silly level of volume for an old man.

    I got back from bouldering at around 9.30 p.m., and I was wiped out - I barely moved for the rest of the evening.

    I managed a lunch-time walk as well, so finished the day on 18,000 steps. My local park has recently put in monkey bars, so I entertained the local weed-smoking youths by doing a couple of rounds.

    I have a vague plan for my weekly exercise scehdule, along the lines of:
    Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday: Bouldering, aim for 3 or 4 times a week.
    Tuesday, Thursday: Lifting, aiming for 2 to 3 times a week. If my arm pump has recovered, include some hangboarding.
    Saturday, Sunday: Hiking, and/or scuba diving, and/or lifting. Aiming to do something both days.

    This may be too much volume, but my body seems quite efficient at telling me when I've overdone it (and that is not very frequent).

    An easy pace 5k run this morning. I took an extra rest day yesterday as I had some foot pain after running at the weekend. The extra day has made a big difference and I would say I am back to 100%. Will pick the distance back up tomorrow.

    Starting to get a bit antsy after 3 post race rest days, but I've scheduled some minor medical stuff for this week. MD says no running/cycling for a couple days around the test, so I just sit here, lol.
