Thank you Boris for the links to the video in your comments to yesterday’s blogs. Here are a few examples of the circuit training that Fritsch/Nolte suggest. Apologies for those who don’t speak German. I suggest you throw the text in Google Translate.

Romana’s circuit training, all stations 12 repeats (they will do 15 later)
- Hanging on ribstole – legs
- Lying pullup bar
- squats on bosu ball
- Bench press 25kg
- Bench pull 25kg
- Leg press 70kg
- Sit ups
- Rowing motion
- Jumping over a bench
My inventory of what I have at home
- Jumping rope (used now for quick hotel room workout)
- dumbbells 2kg
- Pezzi ball
- A pull up bar to put in a door opening. It doesn’t work because our 1920s doors are too wide
Perhaps the addition of a sandbag, and maybe a simple fitness bench will be enough to create a simple improvised circuit training for when I don’t have time to go to the gym/rowing club. The idea would be to do a 30-40 minute circuit training, then erg. All critique/suggestions/comments welcome!!!!
Nice weather: 15 degrees C, windy and medium to medium/big chop. Overcast.
I did my weekly 6km hard distance row, but the lake was really choppy at the Sirka end. My time was over 28 minutes … 🙁
The stats are as follows:

Slow, sloppy and choppy … not a good day. Tailwind didn’t speed me up and the headwind slowed me down by a lot.
My Garmin Forerunner 220 froze after 33 minutes of rowing. I had to reset it after the training. Luckily, that worked. Even though, I was already fantasizing that I had a good reason to buy a new GPS watch … 😉
I am glad I build in the redundancy with the CrewNerd / Garmin combo.
I am using tapiriik now so I have all data on Garmin Connect, SportTracks and Strava. Used the Strava segments for the first time to look at my historic data on the 6km. I have defined a 5.8km segment in Strava that should capture my 6km efforts without having to line up on exactly the same starting location every time. Here are the historic data that I captured:
I took a GoPro video of the effort. Will upload it once done processing.
