201#, getting closer.

5 last week. 4 so far this week, took wed. off due to feeling a bit rough. Planning to dirt bike all day sun though.

>Been on a new thing - very slow running

When I was seriously boxing training I don't think it was the brutal workouts that increased my fitness level the most, pain threshold for sure. The biggest bump I saw was from 45 min brisk walks on the treadmill, 5% incline, touch under 4 mph. Heart rate likely around the 110 mark although generally my heart rate seems to be less than the norm.

From memory Lyle McDonald notes that for a lot of elite athletes hard training is a very small part of their total.

Oh... and I installed a barrel sauna a week ago tonight. I think I've used it five times. A little too much - had to take an electrolyte supplement. I think long-term it will be 2-3 times per week.
