    I faced facts, did a rowing machine workout, first one of the "Winter"(-ish) season.

    My goal was to keep it moderate intensity, but a reasonable duration. In objective pace and strokes per minute, I did that, trying to stick around 2 minutes 30 seconds per 500 meters (a.k.a. 2:30 split) and 20 strokes per minute (a.k.a. 20 spm, a.k.a. a 20 rating). Body response was unimpressive - not exactly moderate - however. :|

    Truth in advertising: Today was my birthday, so I fueled the row shortly beforehand with deep-fried battered mushrooms and a snifter of Hopslam double IPA. :D That, or need to work on conditioning, meant that most of the workout was Z4, when I would've anticipated mostly Z2-3 at that pace. Ugh.

    Ridiculously detailed dissection and a bit of hand-wringing in the spoiler, FTR.

    I did it as 3 pieces of 2000m each, with 2 minutes in between and at the end. (I'd conventionally write that as "3 x (2k on, 2' off)". The 2 minute "off" between 2k pieces is actually 5 light strokes, a quick break to drink a slug of water and wipe sweat, then around one minute of light rowing until the next 2k starts. The final 2 minute "off" is just 2 minutes light rowing. Total distance was 6,736 meters.

    Pace on the 2k parts averaged 2:29.4, and 19 strokes per minute, as intended, close to those numbers all the way through.

    Heart rate response was . . . not great, in some ways.

    Most of the last 2k was at a higher heart rate than 220-age (152+, since I'm 68). In reality, that's only about 85% of my actual HR max, or just below 80% heart rate reserve, not 100%+ of max as the age formulas would suggest, though. Not panting or gasping, but working.

    Decently steep drop in HR during the off/light rowing parts, though.

    Better results in future, I hope. Concept 2 Holiday Challenge starts next week.

    The “I don’t wanna workout on sat or Sunday” combined push pull workout:

    2x10 DB shoulder press
    2x12 DB Bench Press
    2x8 weighted pull-ups
    2x12 x 2xfailure Lat prayers and seated neutral grip machine rows
    2x12 x 2x12 superset of cable curls and tricep extensions (the full arm pump is so satisfying)

    First week in a long time I’ve gotten 2 push/pull sessions AND 2 day of lower…all in a week I started a super aggressive deficit (1800ish cals at 225 lb body weight)

    Went to boxing class today. My back is flaring up badly but I hoped movement would help. It didn't make it worse but didn't make it better either. I was on call and had to leave early as I got a call and had to deal with something urgently but am glad I managed to go.
