    Morning: 10 mile walk with around 5 hills. I did it quite quickly, as I'd forgotten to pack any lunch. I found a parrot at the top of a hill - I'm seeing if I can use Facebook to reunite it with its owner.

    Afternoon: Walk the pool, and a 1 mile swim. I got 26,000 steps in total, so not a bad day's effort.

    That is a much more brightly colored bird than the ones I typically see ;) I typically see great blue herons, bald eagles, geese, duck, seagulls, more geese...so many geese. I think I may have seen a few cormorants this morning and yesterday as well (they might have a nest near our dock).

    Hopefully the parrot gets reunited and also wasn't a victim of an owner dumping it somewhere.

    They are certainly not common in England!

    It turned out that the owners free fly them there, so it wasn't lost.

    Oh that's great to hear! You guys do have more swans though which aren't a thing on the river I row on.

    Another walk. There were no parrots on this one.

    I did 12 miles in 3 hours 40; around 25,000 steps. I like his route as it's from my house, with no need to drive.

    50 easy minutes on Zwift. Nothing exciting, though I got a strangely large number of ride ons (essentially people liking my ride mid ride).

    Just some very light lifting today. Still recovering from moving a metric crap-ton of wood and putting in fence posts this weekend. :)

    90 minutes bouldering.

    I was pleased that the gym was open - I wasn't expecting it.

    It was a good session. I got pretty much everything I tried. I flashed a bunch of routes. Only one needed multiple goes, and when it occurred to me to get the final hold initially with my right rather than left, I got it. (It took at least 10 attempts for this to occur to me.)

    85 minutes bouldering.

    A pretty good session. I flashed a few v3s. I then did a bunch of cave climbs, which didn't go as well. I got a bit pumped.

    I do stacks of diving out of Portland, Dorset (UK). There is apparently good climbing there - I have bought the guide book.

    14 mile cycling in a 17 mph wind - parts of this ride were brutal, parts were glorious and the other half reminded me how much I hate cycling in high winds haha

    working on the farm a bit..pitching rocks/stumps that the frost worked up to the surface out of the fields

    Chest and Back today, took a break from the normal 8x8 routine and completely skipped on legs today. Tomorrow morning I’ll be paying for my mistakes today 🤦🏽‍♂️

    Did a lower body workout for the first time in weeks earlier and it kicked my butt. My legs had that nice rubbery feeling walking up the stairs afterwards. As a side note, I had kinda forgotten how much I hated reverse lunges.

    Our little island is packed with vacationers and it’s wonderful! Everyone’s shopping, walking and bike riding! I got in a few miles from point to point and met a bunch of smiling faces! 4fx4ijt6gu6n.png
