Re: Old man river's log

I had a 2 week holiday in South Africa. It was brilliant.

My weight is now 171 pounds, so I managed to continue to lose weight. Exercise wise, I stayed at 1 place with a gym, where are rowed 5k in 22.5 minutes. I swam 4 sets of 30 minutes, and walked up Table Mountain 2 5 times. (I arrived in Cape Town relatively late, so went 1/2 up the first day there.) India Venster was the most fun route I used - there was a little scrambling.

Today I rowed 5k in 22 minutes 10 seconds. I will move back into the Pete plan this week.

Re: Old man river's log

I did some lifting on Monday after the row.

Today, I rowed 7k in 33 minutes 29 seconds. Pretty slow, but I was tired

Re: Old man river's log

Today I did a 15 mile walk. This was the last bit of the London Loop Walk.

Yesterday, I went climbing for the first time. It was fun. My arms list all grip strength by the end.

Re: Old man river's log

Yesterday I rowed 4 sets of 800m, quickest pace being the last at 2.04 per 500.

Today I did 7 k in 33 mins 19 seconds, so only slightly quicker than my previous 7k.

I went go karting, then lifted afterwards. I have lost strength due to my weight loss.

17 May 2019
Did an hour yoga over lunch, and did a relatively slow 20 minute row (4323 metres done).

Weight: 167 pounds. It's the first time I've been below 12 stone for many years.

Went bouldering at an indoors gym. It wa brilliant fun - I will try to do it more often.

19 May 2019
Walk along the Thames Path, about 16 miles in total. Now I have finished the London Loop, it looks like a few if may try the Thames Path from London to Oxford. The logistics from where I live are a bit grim, though.

25 May
Climbing. I managed an hour before my grip completely gave up. Did an over-hangy one that eluded me last time. I don't really understand the grades, but I think it's a UK 5 plus.

26 May
Rowing machine: 7.5 km. Just over 38 minutes, so a lot slower than last time. I felt tured, do took it easy. Average heart rate: 143.

Weight: 164 pounds. The diet is still having success.

15 mile hike. It was good - we got lost, and ended up hacking our way up a hill off a path as a result.

Re: Old man river's log

31 May
First day off for a while, which I needed.

1 June
Climbed for just over an hour. Again, I got a couple I failed on on Wednesday. My technique is crap, but slowly improving.

In the evening, I jumped up and down a lot at a New Model Army gig. I have no idea how many times I've seen this band - maybe 30 times?

Weight,: 162 pounds.

Nice another climber, we have about half a dozen now!

You’re in London? Which gym are you going to?

Re: Old man river's log

Cool, are you in London as well? Where do you climb?

My client moving so far has been Sutton(Craggy Wall.). Some other friends use VauxWall, so I will check that out soon - maybe tomorrow.

Re: Old man river's log

No I’m in the states but I get out that way 1-2x a year.

I do follow a bunch of London climbers on YouTube and Instagram so that counts right lol?

Re: Old man river's log

Cool - if you fancy a climb when you're over next, let me know.

2 June 2019
Rowed 8k in 39.30. Then a bit later, did a 10 mile walk. I walked through Epsom racetrack - I forgot it was the Derby on Saturday. It was open, and not filled with drunk people, do it worked OK.

3 June
Climbing - used VauxWall for the first time. It is a lot more crowded than Craggy Island. Went up some V0s and V1s. I fell off most harder things, but got one v2.

Rowed 7 sets of 500m with 2 minutes rest. Started slow, finished in 1.55 pace.

Re: Old man river's log

6 June
Day off

7 June
1 hour yoga.
In the evening, 3x 500m row. Quickest was 1 minute 48.
Then I lifted. I started at midnight, and elected not to go heavy.
Bench: 1 set of 5, 55kgs.
Deadlift: 1 set of 5, 120 kgs.
Facepulls.

8 June
Rowed 8k, 38.23 minutes. Lost some time when my music randomly stopped playing early on, so was probably equivalent to 38 minute no seconds .

Not much weight loss this week - I am now 161 pounds.

Re: Old man river's log

I got bored yesterday after the row, so lifted.
8 June, continued
Squatted 80 kgs. This felt really heavy, so I did 1 set of 5 followed 2 of 3. I am definitely weak at the moment. I guess it's now way more than bodyweight.

9 June
Rowed 6k. This was horrible, I really struggled with it for some reason.
Walked 7 miles.
Climbed for 1 hour. The routes had all been reset, so my projects were gone. I have found a few more, though.

Re: Old man river's log

10 June
Climbing. 90 minutes. Good session, got up a lot of things I failed on last week, I think v2 Max.

Some people ther logs have had a lot of talk about mental health. I thought I would list the rules I live by, which I find helpful:
  1. Focus on the negative. Be grumpy and complain. At the extreme, bear in mind that death is inevitable.
  2. Don' t navel gaze. The answer isn't within me, and I am a fool and a charlatan if I think it is.
  3. Say no more.
  4. Suppress your emotions. Under the previous points, I am a miserable git, so this makes me more bearable to others. On a more serious note, shame, embarrassment and anger are all part of the human condition. I will experience these emotions; I should seek to minimise their impact.
  5. Don't believe random self-help advice, such as this list. The person compiling it is probably a charlatan and a fool.
  6. Read more novels. I aim for 1 a week.

Re: Old man river's log

I had some medical test results today:
  1. 1CA 38 (pre-diabetes starts at 42)
  2. Blood pressure 112/75
  3. Cholesterol 3.2

3 months ago, these were not as good - all three were high. Moving around a lot and losing weight helps things, it appears.

10 June
Lifted. Repeated the weight from my 8 June session, as I struggled then. It was was all lightweight this time, nothing but a peanut.

I also got 22,000 steps in, which is more than my average work day
