They're actually very comfy to wear except when driving or seated in an office type chair. Also, you don't want to sit on the pleats all day.

i did about 20 minutes of kettlebell work last night. This morning, I bouldered at the gym for 35 minutes after dropping the kid off at school (not a euphemism).

I'm fighting off of a pulled muscle in my right shoulder, so have been taking it easy on the overhead lifting.

Also, forget renting a kilt. Just buy a SportKilt if you want to try it out.

Fuck it, I'm back to reporting by the run...

After my day off, it was 6 x XC / hill repeat laps today, for a total of 8.4km (41 3/4 furlongs... oops sorry, 5 1/4 miles), half of each lap on ice, after the strange succession of warm and cold days we've had, so my Salming iSpikes were really proving their worth. Quite a bit of crusty weird snow too. Felt really strong, and wouldn't have said no to a couple more laps, but I am sticking to my program.

Total time: 38:20 for 4:34/km (7:20/mile)

What are the spikes made out of that ice isn't an issue? I would never get the value out of them but curious.

Tungsten Carbide, AFAIK. They shoes will probably last me many years with the amount I actually use them (no more than 10k a week for about 3-4 months of the year). I may not ever need to buy another pair. But they fill a niche and they do work really well.

16 “miles” tonight. Tough workout at sub-threshold with 10s spikes into anaerobic. Had to pause a couple of times which likely deprived me of some of the training benefit, but no one’s paying me to do these intervals. :)

6.9 miles in 5 laps around the neighborhood. The first 2 laps ticked in at 12:30, the second 2 with some effort right at 12:00, and the final lap was 13:xx. Each lap is roughly 200ft gain/loss so hoofing it up the one big climb requires me to focus. Tonight will be an hour on the bike in a steady effort. Not that anyone cares but here is my current schedule:

Monday: Off, maybe stretching
Tuesday: Run. Neighborhood or Tempo on greenway
Wednesday: Peloton, steady effort and stretching
Thursday: Run. Opposite of Tuesday
Friday: Off or 20-30 minute Peloton class
Saturday/Sunday: Longer runs likely in double digit mileage.

Once I am vaccinated, I will figure out where to through the gym for weights in here. KB work at home isn't really weights.

Windy AF today. So windy when it was on my beam it nearly blew my front tire out from under me.

7.3 miles this morning in 54:55 (7:31min/mi) for my tempo/interval. 1 mile warm up, then 0.25miles on / 0.25 miles off for nine sets, then run out the remaining 2ish miles. Temps were in the 40s so it felt great. Only challenging spot was where the flooding occurred covering the path in mud so I had to walk as it was slippery. One part I ran in a field to get away from the mud and thought, "this must be what fell running in England is like."

35 minutes of bouldering at the gym this morning. I’m getting my mojo back pretty quick. I flashed a V4 and did about 15 problems total.

I’ve now shed my holiday weight gain. Now it’s time to work off the COVID weight gain. I weighed 181 at this point last year, and was at 188.6 this morning. My peak in January was 193.6.
