yeah its actually been reasonably well managed at my hospital(massive expansion of ICU/ventilator availability + staffing this with adequately skilled people) and my area isn't the worst hit (but up there after london). but saying that we are openly starting to struggle now, staff are tired and being asked to learn new skills quickly i.e. nurses learning how to be ICU nurses on the job basically. people are walking around with their face bleeding from open sores from the PPE also, its grim.

nobody has seen anything like this before, its killing 50% of ICU patients according to latest data here and in a brutal way with patients totally isolated from their loved ones surrounded by people in space suits.

at the moment i'm failing fit tests for the masks available so i'm currently not in the covid land (having sacrificed my beard of over 5 years), which is actually frustrating because working in that environment with all that equipment is really physically demanding and not being able to help the team sucks. Now moving onto the 'rest week' of our fixed rota designed to stop us all just completely burning out. Hopefully the weather is going to stay nice and can get some nice peaceful socially distanced runs in.

stay safe everyone.

Today 15km bike ride home from work + 7.4k easy run at dusk

Going to be taking things very easy with training over the next few weeks with lots of easy runs. looking forward to it really, i've been putting my body through gym workouts consistently for years so maybe its time for a break other than some body weight stuff. hopefully not gonna lose too many gains.

Anyway -

Flatmate got covid so have been self isolating ... 14 days total
No running

Managed to go outside to a deserted bit of land to do some jump rope/yoga. Yoga daily. Jump rope every other day or so at least whilst my calves adapt, doing like 30m low intensity not sure how it will help preserve my running

Also doing armstrong pull up program as now have a bar for home, consists of 3x max pushup before and then 5 different pull up workouts
Just finished the first today

Day 1
Push - 25, 32, 30
Pull - 11, 6, 4, 3, 4 (5x max 60s rest)

Day 2
Push - 40, 35, 32
Pull - 1+"+3+4+5+6+3+4 (ladder up rest = 10s x reps of previous set + 1 x max effort at the end)

Day 3
Push - 40, 40, 30
Pull - 9 x 3 60s rest (9 x work set 60s rest)

Day 4
Push 43, 40, 40
Pull - 13 X 3, 2  (work sets as per day 3 till fail)

Day 5
Push - 45, 40, 32
Pull - 10, 6, 2, 2, 2 (repeat hardest day, tried day 1 -hard ? accumulated fatigue)

Now 2 rest days and repeat
Will probably do some leg stuff tomorrow

bump, how you holding up?

Not too bad, thanks for the bump! Went through a bit of a dark period but things all around improving now. Covid cases in our hospital fell quite dramatically so we were all sent back to departments we were meant to be in rather than Icu. Now rotated into general practice which is a different world, barely any face to face, all telephone. Shit cray. Think we might be back on ICU soon though given the way the government are handling this.

Time to start logging training again as life resumes some normality. Out of this period I've decided to make some dramatic life changes with altering some shitty completely counterproductive behaviours that I won't get too far into here.

==================================

Today

Pre work yoga x 30m + 30m meditation (now going to log this kinda stuff to help with accountability.. Made a commitment to daily yoga/meditation.

Cycle commute 2 x 5miles

Pushups 55, 50, 50 (submax rather than 3x max as left pec strained)

Run 8km mostly easy with 2x fast ~1km

Pull ups 9x5 1min rest

========================

Armstrong pull up program has been amazing, have hit 70 push ups now and seemed to have maintained/gained upper body mass on these 2 movements alone.

Running slowly improving. Had a 14 day self isolation period with 0 running so took some getting back into stride.

Leg days have been non existant, may start some easy stuff tomorrow, dreading the DOMS.

word, glad to hear you're doing well. +1 on the dramatic life changes, although in my case it wasn't me doing the deciding...

also the armstrong program looks interesting. i lost steam with 20 push up/100 pull up challenge, need to get back on that horse. might be worth trying something different.

Yeah, fortunately it got to a point where I realised I had to change before things got worse and somebody made me/went down a wrong road all together. Bleh, onwards and upwards...

Armstrong has been great! Would totally reccomend especially in current times with no gym access... Tbh in not sure if I'll go back to lifting after this.

=================

Yoga 30m meditation 30m

Cycle commute 5m each way

Pushups 55, 50, 50 (accumulated fatigue stalling can't imagine hitting 70 rn!)
Pull ups 5 x 6, 4 + 3 (d4 of program)

Evening stroll.
