I mostly hate it as it tries to murder me any time I spend more than five minutes on it. Every now and then I do a 2k and I keep meaning to force myself to do longer distances but I puss out almost every time. I am often impressed with your rowing times but I haven't been able to convert row envy to a concerted effort at getting better at it yet.

Sometime over the holidays I set up a 5k and then stopped after 2k. Went back five minutes later to do another 2k and stopped after 1.2k. I ended up sneaking in maybe 20 minutes total that day but most often I have just been using it for a 5min warmup before lifting.

I get it; 8 minutes made me feel like I was going to die back when I got into it. There's not much to do other than build up slowly - going slower (pace-wise) than you think you should is also fine. I'm assuming you're not one of those bros that sets the damper at 10?

Going slower pace wise is key and something I tend to struggle with. Though, any pace I do is relatively slow. My damper is set somewhere between 4 and 5. I forget how exactly I determined that setting but you were involved with the provision of advice either directly or pointing me towards some online video resources with respect to both the damper setting and form. So, thanks again!

That's an expensive warm up machine!

Go a lot slower than you think you should go. 5k will be easy.

It sure is when you put it that way!
Did a slower than I thought I should go 2k last night as a gap stop. It wasn't horrible nor was it wonderful. May try to do more of that.

Legs were surprisingly tired from the last couple days of marching through snow. I will blame the snow rather than just admitting I am out of shape. I suppose I ought to be thankful for the extra workload provided by the snow. Thanks snow. Gratitude session for the year complete.

Throat is still sore but I think I have kicked the cold to the curb. The throat issue feels more like it may be plain ole winter dryness at this point. Got away pretty lucky with this one as my energy levels were pretty good throughout, at least in the mornings. Spent a couple hours chopping at ice trying to relieve water build up as we had a pile of rain, ice pellets and more rain today. Feeling that in my lower back this morning.

Hours spent chopping ice? Your version doesn't sound as romantic as what was portrayed in Frozen.

Squat – 10xbw, 10x45lbs, 10x85, 3x10x120
Ab rollouts – 3x13

1974 cal/175 carb/66 fat/178 protein/23 fibre

Crappy sleep and was awake way too early. Lower back was sore and I have to spend Wednesday sitting on planes so my inner wimp was begging me not to squat. My inner jackass chimed in with the fact that my 10-year-old could probably squat the weight I was planning to lift. In the end I didn’t dare skip a workout as travel is too likely to derail things as it is but I still managed to squat less than planned. Off to Vegas for work for a few days and will see if any exercise gets squeezed in.

2099 cal/147 carb/84 fat/199 protein/31 fibre

Had to get up at 4:30am to get to the airport but was wide awake an hour early so eventually gave up on more sleep and slipped in some yoga before leaving. After about 14 hours of travel I hit the Vdara gym shortly after arriving in Vegas. Grabbed a nice steak and called it a very early night. I am off to my standard Vegas start and was wide awake at 3:30am local time this morning.

Snuck in a poker session of almost 8 hours and dropped the better part of $200. Managed to turn AA into a loser a couple times, including once with a full house. Ate at Scarpetta and logged a salted caramel budino as 750 cals which may well have been double that.

Friday January 17 – xxx lbs

5:00 treadmill

Yoga – 20 min

1955 cal/100 carb/97 fat/151 protein/28 fibre

Wide awake at 3:15am but was able to doze on and off for the next hour or so. Killer week for sleep as I had a couple sub 5 hour nights before heading to Vegas and I seem to always wake up at normal eastern time when in Vegas which messes with my system. Work is all done as of Friday night and I get Saturday to do whatever. Sold one of my kids plus my left arm to buy a ticket to the Cowboy McGregor fight and will likely slip in some poker ahead of that.

Yet another east coast wake up time but I managed to get up and get some physical activity in every day on this trip. I will have another opportunity for a derail shortly. UFC 246 was pretty electric live and the fact that going to the event dragged me away from the poker tables may have actually saved me money. Got in another session in the morning and dropped a little under $100 when all was said and done.

Good time in Vegas and managed five workouts plus some daily yoga. Took it easy Sunday morning, did a bit of work, grabbed a bite and went for a walk before heading to the airport late morning. Got home after 2am after 13 hours of travel which ended up making Monday a bit rough.
