    Flight Simulator 2020

    Well, on my Xbox SX, since the latest update, a 3rd of Centurion, Midrand and Jhb buildings are now 2D images on the ground, and most of the highways are dirt roads. They were fine before the update. I deinstalled and reinstalled everything (what a bugger) and no change. Same thing in...

    Still absolutely loving the game on xbox. Graphics are certainly good enough for me. Maybe my expectations were lower haha.

    Flight Simulator 2020

    Very excited... I too launched the game the second the download was over. Alas, no go yet. Never used mouse and keyboard on xbox at all. Would be pretty cool if you could use controller and mouse, or controller and keyboard in conjunction for some operations.

    Wife diagnosed with Covid but she's doing better. I'm feeling better than yesterday. Just the body and headaches right now. Since I'm doing better, and our symptoms are for the most part the same, not sure if I even need to test?

    So I'm pretty demoralized and angry... I've aggravated a right bicep niggle to the point I can't even bicep curl a 5kg dumbell. The outside of the right elbow feels pretty fragile as well, can't do lateral raises without pain there. Pretty sure I can't row without pain either... Tried...

    Cheers! Never done a max heart rate test. Very good points about the different breathing that goes on, comparing bike vs squats! I can speak during cycling but towards the end (80% of duration), probably not. Measuring with the hand pads on the stationary bike.. It's a cheapie bike from Makro...

    220 minus my age... Happily then I need to push harder! But yeah I can easily hit mid to high 180s when I do push more.... Pretty sure it spikes higher during squats and deadlifts! Will be reading up more, had a fun argument at the office during a miraculous quiet moment.

    So when I jump on the stationary bike and go for 15-20min, at quite a high resistance and rpm.... According to the bike's heart rate monitor, I'm over 170, from between 8 to 10min till end... I'm sweating and panting but I don't feel like I'm going to die (hyperbole alert), like I sometimes...

    I was going to moan about my freaking sore elbows from barbell rows today, after they were already sore from barbell curls yesterday, and how after cooling down from today's back/triceps/calves I can barely bend them, but I won't...

    Did legs and shoulders today. Did regular squats, 4x8 (only 100kgs but went slow and tried to keep perfect form) Did all three delts of the shoulder x2 exercises, as heavy as I could, 4x15 each with pause reps as needed. OHP, lateral raises, rear delt flies, bus drivers, front straight arm...
