Note

450/1000 days.

2017:
Hours of cardiovascular exercise - 140
Total training hours - 152

Days with illness - 65
Sick days taken due to illness - 6
Total working hours - 1576

2018:
Hours of cardiovascular exercise - 146
Total training hours - 178

Days with illness - 30
Sick days taken due to illness - 14
Total working hours - 1259

So this illustrates the improvements to life balance I wanted to make, the idea behind the 1000 days. Of course I haven't got a comparison for the number of quality hours spent with the family but I'm sure that has also increased somewhat. Not sure I can say the same about the house (still a todo list as long as my knee brace) but priorities eh.

It's obvious that I am looking after myself better, the number of sick days for 2018 above does not include the 9 working days I took off work for the broken knee. So the comparison with 2017 is simply for illness and there's a big difference. I get less ill for less days and when I do I'm more likely to take time off work. Great.

An interesting test of my resolve just now, my main work contract finished in December so now I am looking for another source of income. It will be hard to find a part-time one like I had - at approx 3 days per week it was pretty perfect for what I wanted to do.

Virtually everything new I am looking at is full-time which combined with running my own company and existing, secondary work commitments has the potential to destroy the life-balance again. Could be back to periods with 60 hour working weeks if not careful. Worrying.

Rowing (indoor) 46:20 [1] 10.5 km (4:25 / km)
ahr:126 max:146

Went for a walk after lunch over to the major windblow area around the classic hill, first time in daylight since the storm. One of the big trees that has fallen is at approx 45 degrees, resting on a smaller, dead tree that is somehow still standing. I've ducked under that tree a couple of times recently, oops. Risking more than just a broken knee there.

I had thought it would be safe to just tidy up a bit and still use the classic hill exactly the same as before. It's a fairly obvious decision now to re-route it - planned that today, cleared some of the dead stuff but will have to go back with the saw to make it properly meathead again. Shouldn't be significantly different in terms of distance/climb.

3*3.5km on the rower today, felt harder than the HR suggests but still an easy session. Still resistance level 0/10.

I think it was difficult to get my HR up today because I am a little fatigued, have increased the volume of training quite significantly the last few weeks. All things considered it feels pretty amazing to be able to say that I probs need a bit of a rest week!

Stretching (static) 24:45 [0]

Did my range of movement exercises before this, they went ok considering the abuse I've put my knee through the last few days. That's 3 times this week and what with next week's plan of less hours/intensity on the cardio side there's a good opportunity to get back into a routine again, from a strength/stability perspective.

Stretching was good tonight, certainly felt better than earlier in the week.

New alternative long trail route, icy. Just like 6 days ago this was fairly taxing on the knee. Not sure if I got away with it last week, not completely in any case. We'll see if it recovers better this time.
