As we all know, aerobic exercise is good for us, for climbing, life etc, but it can be harder to motivate till you get into it. So the purpose of this thread is to provide some sort of motivation via peer support.
I'm mostly a runner, but also a sometime mtn bker/bicycle commuter, etc. But for our purposes here anything that gets your heart rate up into the target zone (roughly 60-80% of Max for 20 minutes or so or more works. Anything leading up to that works too. Run, walk, jog, bike, dance,circuit weight traing, ellipticals, treadmills, skaring whatever.

Sometimes it's good to talk about times and distances and stuff and clearly that can be part of it, but that can turn into a one-upmanship/pissing contest. So for now, I'm thinking just on/off sort of check in, maybe type of exercise, days to date in the year?

this is an evolving process, totally into suggestions as well.

I'll start;
√ I got me some, today a short run. The 22nd run day I've managed this year. My best day so far was last saturday

Who's next?

I pushed some weights this morning at the community centre, with some coaching from a knowledgeable friend. It seemed time to learn about it.

Later, I swam, so that was aerobic. A habit I developed when I did triathlons - fairly disciplined, structured workouts. I'm now back up to 3 - 4 swims a week, usually around 2,000 m.

hill sprints, 10 sets 45 seconds each @180-187 BPM. 45 second rest. Next week goes to 50/45. Three times a week, with one day rowing instead of hill sprints.

3 days a week, 2 sets 20 minutes at 160-167 BPM on stairs, threadmill and elyptical (1 day each). Squats/pushups/situps/dips in between.

1 day long hike/ski. 2 days / week climbing in gym as part of weight training on interval days.

On week 4. It sucks. But its so good.


edit - max HR is 196

Sunday I had a good 2 hour cardio burn at Sunnyvale skatepark, and 2 45 minute speed bouldering sessions at planet granite sunnyvale on tues and today. These consist of 10 v1s, 10 v2s, 10 v3s and as many v4s I can get before 45 min runs out. Heart rate gets pretty high.

Pretty good day. Got out the door, decided it was too rainy, so came back in and headed down to the treadmill to find it serving as a clothes rack. Concluded it was time to start dinner.

Hoping to do even more tomorrow.

I hiked to Dales camp and climbed the Cuban Roll first go. Then walked fast back to birthday boulders against a strong wind. Felt like aerobic exercise to me!

Daylight savings starts this weekend;kicking off the Tuesday/Wednesday road bike action. Also, i have a nice selection of trails right out the front door. 3,000 ft vertical or a nice long traverse.

It sounds like murcy is philosophical about his wannabe life on the treadmill.

bouldered at the gym


Squiddo can vouch for me showing up.


pushed a bunch of V0s to keep me moving and heart rate going, walking back and forth between the outside and inside areas. Finished by working on an overhanging "V2" with big holds. I was sweating by the end.

Ok. I'll try it. My current goal is at least 35 minutes most days of the week if climbing outside on the weekend. If not climbing outside, more aerobic exercise at least one weekend day.

This week, I've logged 22 miles, 3 hours, and a calorie burn of 1400 over 3 days. Jogged twice about 5 miles each time and bicycled twice in one day for a cumulative 12 miles.

Just ate mother in law brownie, though, doh!

As I have nothing to do in England but ride my bike and eat and sleep, well, that's what I've been doing. Just got back from a solo tour of Normandie averaging 80 miles a day, which isn't that much on a tour but the wind was gnarly, 10 hours riding into a headwind makes you pretty angry, and since I've been home, I've been averaging 60 miles a day. It's been great therapy for me. I've always been a fanatical rider, but the last couple years I was taking care of my dad(who had Lou Gehrig's disease) and didn't get to ride, which made me fat/depressed, and now I'm reversing all that. It feels like a rebirth. And I'm doing it not only for me but my dad too. In the last year of his life, when he literally couldn't move a single muscle except for his eyes, I can only imagine how much he thought about moving his body. So, while I'm able to, I will! I've lost 25 lbs since last summer.
Right now, a beautiful day is dawning on the North Sea coast of Kent where I live, and I'll be riding from my house near Boughton-under-Blean, to Broadstairs and back (home of Charles DIckens-I've seen his house!), 60-75 miles depending on which route I take. I'm just drinking tea until my eyes start to vibrate, then I know I've had enough caffeine. Then I'm off!
