rowing to valhalla

Post by dead man walking » Mon Apr 16, 2018 2:46 am

apr 15

going on 72 in a couple weeks, i'm trying to find the right mix of endurance and strength that allows me to be fit but doesn't inflame old injuries

weight--too much

hr--high 40s

tendons and joints--plantar, fine; right elbow, mild discomfort; left knee, quiet; right shoulder, intermittent popping and discomfort.

erg 54 mins
3 x 15 min easy + 9 min moderate
i've found that breaking up the session makes a big difference on my back

ab, hips, low back--a little of this and that

22 april

erg 15 min warmm-up

erg 30 minute "trial"
final hr 85%

the last couple of days i have had a painful knot/cramp/spasm in my neck. the spot doesn't feel tight when i touch it, but it hurts like a bastard if i turn my head wrong. last night, i asked the wife to massage it. the moment she got on the spot, i howled. pain was intolerable. she was pleased with her powers.

it has quieted down today some for no reason that i know.
