    Horseback riding.

    I searched for "Horseback" within the MFP Fitness & Exercise category and the last post was Jun 29, 2023, and 1 result in this discussion back in 2018. Is there anyone else here that does horseback riding as their workouts?

    Nice! I don't go horse backing riding but love horses.

    Day one of 2023 Concept 2 Holiday Challenge completed, so I guess I'm doing it? :D I hope?

    I slowed down a little, trying to stay in Z3 or lower because of planned volume increase. I jumped literally 2 beats over the (estimated) Z4 line for 3 minutes of the 45 minutes, so not bad. 3 x 2k, 1 x 1k, plus 2' row in/out between the pieces and a 3' CD. Total of 8,329m including the row in/outs and cool down.

    It's surprising how much less fatiguing a tiny decrease in pace is. I was trying to stick just below a 2:35 (per 500m) split, so these 2k pieces took only about 20-25 seconds more time for each 2k than the Z4 ones the other day, 10 minutes and teens seconds vs. 9 minutes and 50-something seconds. They felt much easier. I did let myself increase the rating (strokes per minute) by 1 or 2, so using slightly more drive speed and less power to get the pace. (That's sort of bad form IMO, but I did try not to go lower power than 10m per stroke.) It was noticeably less tiring. Cardio intensity is weird.

    Day 2, stationary bike (i.e., C2 BikeErg), 15k plus 3 minute cool down for 16,237 total meters at 103W average to keep it moderate, overwhelming majority Z3 topping out at a mere 75% HRmax.

    Starting plan is 6 days on, one day (Sunday) off, alternating the RowErg pattern I used last night with this bike pattern, all moderate intensity at least until I'm sure I won't over-fatigue if I go harder; now through Christmas Eve.

    I ride every Sunday and mention it on here :) although my share horse has been coming back from lameness so we've been a bit limited recently! But you're right there are no active horse riding groups on here unfortunately.

    I've done very little all week, my head cold got much worse and wiped me out, and then my motivation has also massively dipped. Have managed a little yoga on Thursday and Friday but did a 7k walk this afternoon.

    Back to RowErg, 3 x 2k, 1 x 1k, plus 2' row in/out between the pieces and a 3' CD. Total of 8,331m including the row in/outs and cool down.

    Pace on the pieces (excluding row in/out and CD) was 2:33.6 per 500m at average 19spm.

    Mostly Z3, aiming for nothing over that, but again I was 2bpm into Z4 5% of the time - close enough.

    Scheduled rest day tomorrow.

    Short horse ride today, was -1°C when we headed out so I was in no mood to hang about but pony had other ideas! We only managed 2.8km, I had plans this afternoon so a longer ride was out of the question today unfortunately.

    I went scuba diving in a quarry in Somerset this weekend. It's not my favourite thing (the sea is better); but quite a few people from my club needed training.

    It was fun. The water temperature was OK (around 10 Centigrade), although it was cold outside. There was a frost on Saturday which never thawed; it was between -2 and +2 C outside.

    Had a day off work today so took myself off for a walk on a route I hadn't done before. 4.6km so nothing crazy, but enjoyed being outdoors before the rain came.

    This afternoon I walked to the gym, did 40 minutes of core and arm work. First time back in a week and a half due to illness so took it relatively easy.
