Elliptical 21:30 [3] 2.0 mi (10:45 / mi)
slept:6.0 weight:160.5lbs

So, I was going to take the day off, after running longer than planned yesterday, and working almost 12 hours (and not having lunch); however, a government employee was intruding in my kitchen when I got home, so I got the hell out of there.

I didn't really feel like running, so it was off to the Y, where I first jumped on the elliptical and pressed the performance button. That triggered the "fitness test" which started out at 10/1, and gradually built up. By 15 minutes, it was up to 10/14 and was pretty challenging. When it got up to 10/20, it was a major struggle and I had to eventually call it quits.

The weight is unfair, since it was after the workout, but it was nice to see it 6.5 lbs less than last Thursday or so.

Biking 25:00 [2] 6.75 mi (3:42 / mi)

Next up was some biking. I did the Auto Pilot program and only averaged 89rpm. My HR seemed to stay below 110, which was very strange, given the perceived effort and the amount of sweat on my shirt.

Erging 17:27 [3] 4.0 km (4:22 / km)

Finally, in honor of Chelsea making it into MIT's second boat (a 4) for Nationals, I jumped on the erg. I was a little lacking in energy, and my back was a bit sore from the bike, so I did 4K as follows:
1K @ 26 (2:15.2 pace)
1K @ 28 (2:09.6)
1K @ 26 (2:16.0)
1K @ 30 (2:02.8)

The downside of Chelsea making it to nationals is that she doesn't get to come home, or at least not for long, between finals and her summer job at Mass General. But I didn't realize that her team is quite respectable - their first boat is ranked 7th in the country, according to the latest poll.
