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.

I missed a workout a couple of weeks ago, 4/4 for the rest of it.  We had a few days of nice weather and I did a little sprinting and skateboarding.

Still doing a lot of the lowe heart rate stuff. Very frustrating. We'll see if it reaps benefits in the long run.

Steady at 5x per week. One of those was dirt biking last week, can't wait for the next.

I'm getting back on track with running/lifting mix. 2x weights, 1x run this week.

What bike are you riding these days, Drastic?

I'm pretty much back to normal, thanks LM. Ankle is 100%. Shoulder still bothers me occasionally, but it's minor. Heavy travel has thrown the schedule off, but still getting runs in and things should calm down in January.

Still on the yz250f.

You still thinking about the TA trail again? I will definitely be in shape for it this year.

Yes, but still undecided. Would love to have the company.
