Forgot to add (exercise)

For the sake of accountability:

I managed to get up this morning and went for a walk before doing some core and shoulder strengthening exercises. While it wasn't easy to drag myself out of bed, I felt SO MUCH BETTER after just this wee smidgeon of exercise!

I also have a plan for an erg workout for tomorrow morning - one of the strength workouts from one of the marathon training programs. It's a cool workout that involves the use of a heart-rate monitor: set the resistance damper two levels higher than your usual drag factor, then do a set of ten power 10's at full/max pressure. In between each power 10, take paddle strokes until your heart rate is below 75% of your maximum heart rate, then start the next power 10. There's nothing like one of these power 10's to force yourself to focus on the present moment.

I think I'm in reasonable shape in terms of overall endurance, but my rowing strength has deteriorated among all this bike-cycling activity. After this workout, I think I'll be in a better position to sit down and plot out how to get from this phase to the start of the Holiday Challenge (Thanksgiving).
