    Day 653

    ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ Programme:
    - Day 28 1 Min HIIT​​​
    ​​​​​​ Day 28 - Splits training app. 19 minutes.
    Exercise bike. Halloween Mission 2 - Horseplay. 25mins/12.13km. A headless zombie on a horse... The pace was about average. I didn't want to push it too much today, given I want to push the running tomorrow.

    Quite an easy day. Had to go out shopping. Wow! Since when has the price of petrol been so high?! Anyway, despite having to push a shopping trolley which screws with the Fitbit count, still got my step count today. On Worldwalking, I'm now doing the West Scotland trail and have just reached Loch Ness. No sign of any monster, though.

    Thanks, TheGrayLynx LizardFriend95 Anek ryś Fremen
    No, DorothyMH it's 500 of them!
    CaptainCanuck True. I was just wondering about wielding something too short or too long or just right. Balance and all that. I'll have a go with a broom handle.

    Broom handle would work I think. I just made my own as per specifications that I researche. I suppose I am never going to get into a fight with it, so it doesn't really matter if it is correct or not.

    Oops, nearly forgot. Today I passed 500 miles walking/running (mostly walking and sometimes cycling, except for the most recent 70 or so k) with Zombies, Run! Yeah, they generally work in kilometres, but sometimes you have to adapt. I got an email advising of this, and providing further instructions. Sam (the operator) had rounded up some glasses, and we donned them and walked around the quad singing The Song. You know the one!

    Day 652

    ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ Programme:
    - Day 27 1 Min HIIT​​​
    ​​​​​​ Day 27 - Splits training app. 18 minutes.
    ZR 5k training. Wk7WO2. Decided to push myself more today, really push it. On Monday, I did the last two minutes at 4.5m/7.2k; today I did all the running - the initial 5 minutes that segued into the next minute, then the other four minutes divided by 15-sec skipping (which I did just as a walk), then the next 3 lots of 5-min runs - at 4.5m/7.2k. Except for the final minute, when I cranked it up to 5m/8k. Okay, that was hard. But I did it. And I didn't die! Every time I do this training, I feel that I am getting better.
    Exercise bike. A Study in Ichor, ep 2 - A Deadly Discovery. 25min/12.58km. A bit slower than yesterday, but then I'd just done the running, and it was still a good pace.

    No bad effects from the rowing yesterday so I'll definitely do it again sometime. Pity ZR only has the one rowing mission.

    So CaptainCanuck guess the old broom handle won't cut it then. But playing with a big stick looks like fun.

    When I made mine I took my height plus an extra fist width. Alternately, just your height.

    Thanks for that, TheGrayLynx I haven't been there for quite some time and didn't know they had jump rope workouts. Could be a bit of fun.

    Day 651

    ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ Programme:
    - Day 26 1 Min HIIT​​​
    ​​​​​​ Day 26 - Splits training app. 19 minutes. Today, the 1-min butt kicks just seemed to take too long!
    Rowing machine. S2S9 - Zombies, Row! 22 minutes. Dusted the old thing off, changed the batteries, and found that although the display lit up with a lot of zeroes, they didn't actually change throughout the workout, so I couldn't tell anything about my pace. Oh well. At least the mission told me when to stop, and showed me the duration. On ZR Season 2, there is a number of side missions. Someone has gone through and made suggestions of the best time to do these - as in, between which main missions. This one was suggested for between M12 and M13. Oops, missed it by that much! I'm sure it makes no difference my having done it between M13 and M14! I haven't rowed for ages, so I expect I'll feel something from this tomorrow. I enjoyed it, though, and must see about using this thing more often.
    Exercise bike. 22min/11.17k. Really felt energized today and pedalled at an average of 19kmp. Can certainly tell the difference from days when I've been running! Anyway, another ZR mission, one of their Halloween ones - H1: Living Dead Girl. As it is that time of year, and there are three Halloween missions this Season...

    Thanks, CaptainCanuck I'd previously dug up one, the obviously named jump rope workout but searched up the others too. And saw all those workouts that use a bo. I wonder how long a bo should be...

    As you know, I am more into the individual workouts now than challenges or programs. I was looking for something else in the database yesterday, and saw that there are about 4 jump rope workouts. Maybr something for you to try instead, when you feel like it.
