Finally in New Zealand! Arrived yesterday (7hr + 18.5hr flight across 13 timezones) now for 10 days of isolation in a hotel. Day 0/1 covid test was negative so hopefully tomorrow we will be allowed out for a period (no heavy exercise allowed though). Had a spin bike delivered today so that will keep me mostly occupied for now.

Today
Yoga ~40m Meditation 1hr + 20m
Spin bike 1hr (no idea how fast or far, very basic equipment! but got a decent sweat on)
Push up 50, 40, 40

Goals whilst I'm here will be to do an Ultra +/- Marathon, At least one mountaineering trip (hopefully Mt Cook but looks like I'll need to develop some technical proficiency).

you could get a band and do pull-aparts. that barely counts as equipment. otherwise, inverted rows under a table or desk?
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

unfortunately difficult to order anything like that in, and the table isn't sturdy enough! Did some single arm rear felt flyes and straight arm pullovers with my yoga mat!

yest
Yoga 40m Meditation 1hr
Push ups 50 40 30
rear delt flye into straight arm pullover 2 x 25 ea with yoga mat
HIIT on bike - 30sec on 90 sec off x 8

Had some god awful palpitations most of the day yesterday, big skipped beats, probably ectopic. Probably stress/anxiety related but really need an echocardiogram to be able to not he more stressed by them lol. Gonna take an easy day today.

I also had problems with inverted rows, so Im doing those silly 'back-widows'. They are prescribed to be done on the floor or standing at a wall, but i do them at the doorway for a greater ROM.
It is not the best or most compound exercise in the world but it does get difficult with controlled high rep scheme and gives you some real lat soreness (and bruises at the spots under the elbows that you push lol ).
Also, i am using a power bag, you can't order it but can't you build one? Any pullable object that weighs  over 15kg can make a great one-arm-bent-row workout.
Target training paces (min/km), calculated from 5K PR 22:49 :
Easy run : 5:48
Tempo run : 4:50
VO2-max run :4:21
Speed form run : 4:02

---

it's the biggest trick in the run game.. go slow to go fast. it doesn't make sense until it smacks you in the face and you're like ....... wtf?

I tried some row type stuff with bags but couldn't get a decent ROM and for doorway we're not allowed yo open the door other than for collecting food etc and our bathroom doorway isn't suitable for anything... but almost done now anyway and I'm sure years of training isn't lost in the 10 days ive been here haha.

1 day to go, released upon nx tomorrow after days and 4 negative PCRs!

2 days ago was rest letting my funky heart settle down
+ yoga 30m + 20m meditation 1hr 30 + 30

yest
yoga 30m + meditation 1hr + 30m
Spin bike 30m
Push up total 100
Bw squat 100
SL good morning with 5k ish bag 2 x 20

Today
yoga 25m + meditation 1hr + 30m
Spin bike 30m
Push up total 100

may have missed a day out idk they've all merged into one. this will be 34 days 9f isolation over the lsst 18 months ha

been doing some yoga with adrienne routines on YT as was getting bored of repeating my routine over and over. highly reccomend to anyone looking to give yoga a go. plus her and her dog are pretty cute ha

Meditation been doing a morning sit of basically vipassana/breath/concentration meditation and evening sits been trying out some loving kindness meditation which sounds kinda soft but think it's had a positive effect on my mood, leaves me feeling warm and fuzzy. def gonna stick with it.

Also been keeping a mood/day/thought/gratitude journal which again i always thought was a bit soft but found it nice to empty some of my brain on paper each day.

lots of mental stuff coming up here but u guess mind and body are one and all. for sure any of yoga, exercise or meditation can generally kick me out of a bad mood pretty quick and writing about that really makes ut obvious.

damn I'm becoming soff, need to find a squat rack and some barbells ASAP  ;D
