The prospect of a yet another Groundhog dog of domestic drudgery and fighting to get the kids to leave the house tipped me over the edge today. I've been trying to keep chipper but all these lockdowns really take their mental toll. So I petitioned for a late pass to go and get some air and some headspace up a hill. We're so lucky to have wee gems like Ben Ledi on our doorstep - and in our health board region.
A bit of gratuitous hammering up the Stank Glen and a modest mountain panorama does wonders for the soul. The one - legged limp off the hill was mercifully short. Still basking on the afterglow. Fabulous.

Dragged Jamie out for a dander before he installed himself on the loft sofa for the remainder of the day.

Well, that was a disaster. I thought that I was ready for a decent workout, Jon's Mix, but had no power, and my HR wasway too high; clearly I'm not out of the woods, yet. A real struggle. Not helped by lack of sleep over all of this stupid CV-19 event-wrecking "guidance" (or lack of it).

Nice and easy, whilst the dinner was cindering in the oven. Mmm, crispy (whoops).

Hilly route, hard. I only had half an hour whilst dinner was cooking, so, I tried to make it count. Decent effort.

Back on the bike! Two weeks of cold-induced sloth have been good for my knee, but I still kept it short - that HR is still way too high for this effort level. According to Strava, my fitness level hasn't been this low since July 2019, when I was totally unfit after 3+ months off with bad LBP problems. It certainly feels that way. Hey ho, the only way is up.
6 PM

Strength training (Pilates) 1:00:00 [1]

Hmm, it has been a while - ouch
