OK, so I swam 30,300 m in February, which is reasonable, though hardly stellar. (A serious recreational swimmer or triathlete might do twice that.) And it's not going to help me get through the narrows, or the Harding slot. But it helps. Plus I started to do some other stuff - stretches, weights - which should be good for me.

Can't let ThinRad get ahead.

castle session for a couple hours, not much aerobic really, but managed to at least not watch tv all morning.

Alrighty, this thread inspired me to finally add regular aerobic/cardio to my workout schedule. I train climbing stuff (hangboard/campus/bouldering/4x4s/core) and some oppositional muscles around a periodization scheme, but I'm lazy and never really do more than random aerobic on my "off" training days and never structured or regularly...maybe once a week, if I'm lucky

Went to the bike shop today, picked up some new bar wrap, and finally a cheap computer. Never, in many many years of road and mtn biking have I put a comp on the bike, always meant to, been "meaning to" for 15 years...also put new batts in the HR monitor so I'm getting serious. So now I can track ride distance/season distance/speed, etc.

Today a little warm up then a quick 10mi blast up to and partially around Lake Perris and back, about 45min of worktime then a 5min or so cooldown.

Got a gym with weight room/bikes/nautilus and locker room/showers where I work, and low traffic flat roads for biking and employer allows 3hrs/week during workday for exercise, so Tue/Wed/Thu I can get it done while on the clock and breakup the workday. Yes!

Just did a 10 mile run with a 2,500 foot altitude gain: Big Rock Ridge above Marinwood, Marin County.

Haven't done that run since I was in my twenties. Strangely I felt stronger today at 48!

Put on the backpack with 30 or so pounds and the boots. 2.5 miles over rolling roads. Just wanted to get the feel of it. Gotta start somewhere.

Went for as much of a trail run as I can this eve.

I used to scoff at the cardio machines in the gym, but now that I can't go running outside anymore I'm starting to appreciate the elliptical. I've discovered the iPhone with videos to relieve the boredom, and fantasize about a stand to hang my laptop and do some work.

Six more miles with a ten year old dog. I'll call it good for now.

Knee won't let me run but I can do the Stairmaster. 5 Miles or 75 minutes whatever comes first. A little bit of weight work after. It's a 7 days a week thing. Missed 2 days driving up here to Washington a couple weeks ago. Probably won't be able to keep it up when the Outage starts:-)

Totally resting today, some stretching, but Saturday, placed 4th in the Bjornloppet (Bear Valley race) 20k skate, and 4th again yesterday in the 10k classic. This weekend is the big marathon, the Gold Rush, 45k skate at Royal Gorge, so this week will be pretty chill, some speed work and a short interval workout, and lots of rest.
