In Taiwan at the Ambassador Hotel in Hsinchu. I arrived this morning at 6am, and was at the hotel by 7:15. I unpacked, called home, and the got into my gym clothes. I was planning another fitness center snooze-fest.
I made a delightful discovery. In the fitness center, there was an old Model D with PM2.
On top of that rower, there was a person. The person was rowing. Slowly. Underhand. I got on the treadmill closest to the erg and started to do some inclined marching. I figured he couldn’t go on too long like that. He didn’t I hopped off the treadmill at the six minute mark and jumped on the erg.
New plan: 2 x 30′ / 2′ with a HR cap at 155.
This turned out to be a challenge. Between jet lag, fatigue, immobility, and dehydration, my HR climbed steadily and even when I slowed way down, it stayed high.
Despite that I enjoyed the session thoroughly.
Tomorrow morning: First crack at the CTC, at R24, just to get the hang of it.
