    Good luck with the STP ride. Do you earn a medal for completion of it?

      I think there's a printable something, but since registration is free I am not expecting anything.

          Kanary well at least there might be something even if you have to print it.

          I'm halfway through my personal trainer course. Can't wait to see if I can start a personal training business after it .

          Just need a bit of practice first.

            Today, I determined that the app for tracking rides for STP doesn't actually do anything when it syncs with my FitBit, so I get to manually track mileage. All good (or good enough), now I know, but I was a little annoyed.

            Happy Independence Day to American Bees (or anyone else who likes fireworks)!

              Hitori Geiko Card - walkthrough
              Kickboxer, Level 1 (420 strikes per set = 1,260 total)
              Half Marathon Training, Day 79 - Upper Body Workout - Paladin, Level 1 reps/Level 3 sets (4 plank pushups per set = 20 plank pushups with good form throughout!)
              Daily Dare w EC, 2 minutes high knees
              30 Days of Yoga, Day 4
              Meditation Challenge, Day 6 - 10 minutes

              Definitely no EC on the workouts today: they both called for 30 seconds rest and it may be the hottest day I've seen so far this year and I just plain needed more time than that to drink my water and get my heartrate under control. (On the other hand, at no point did I think I might pass out, which doesn't sound like a success to anyone else but is to post-chemo me.) I went and got a wet tenugui to tie around my head and that helped.

              Also, some comments on Kickboxer: despite variations on punch-to-elbow being one of my favorite combos in sparring (somehow people don't expect it???), it was really difficult to keep the hook-to-elbow from devolving into just an elbow. I ended up slowing way down and doing technical drills on that, rather than faster "workout" sets. Which is also part of why I stopped at Level 1 - it's a long workout to begin with, and I was not going to get better at that movement if I tried to drill it tired.

                Fantastic workouts!

                Have fun on the Seatlle to Portland ride!

                For keeping cool during workouts, I usually have a bandana drenched in water, squeezed out, put inside a ziplock sandwich bag and chillin inside the refrigerator or ice box. Which I usually workout with a bandana wrapped around my head anyway. So when there are hot days, I get the added benefit of wrapping a nice, cool, wet bandana around my head.
                COOL-REFREASHING -Aaahhhh!!!😅

                  What I used to do was wet down my ponytail, but I don't currently have enough hair to have a ponytail and it doesn't hold enough water to be helpful. So I'm glad my wet-cloth work-around is not actually a new invention, just new to me.

                  And bandanna is probably the English word for the object I used. I would usually call it a "towel", but that brings up images of terrycloth bathtowels or wearing an antimacassar like a hat...

                  Also, while I am commenting on my own log: I think I'm going to add a Full Body Workout on Wednesday, then the two days of 20 minute "walks" per the last week of the plan, and then do the long ride on Saturday (instead of Friday per the current schedule) so I don't have to worry about when I get done at work and that type of thing. Also, that way, I can do some sort of crazy cheat-day celebration dinner on Saturday. (I don't have a plan for that part yet.) I had been thinking I needed to insert a day and then I looked at the structure for the week and I think this is my best plan for moving things a day out. (Should I post a thread? Should I tag an expert? Or should I just trust my instincts?)
