They day ended much better than expected (after tumbling on ice in the morning and getting a warning push notification to stay indoors because of the fire in the not yet opened water amusement park). It started snowing for real. Which improved traction quite a lot. No spikes needed. This resulted in a 17km trail snow shuffle. Nice and easy. Enjoying the quiet forest. 1/3

@WTL those 222s are not too far away. 🙌🙌🙌 (not mentioning 2^8 yet 😜)

(I successfully completed 18 pushups and after a 30 seconds pause another 9 👊; started at 3 a month ago; plank between 80s and 120s depending on time of day)

Friday: 200 seconds of plank, 13 minutes of kettle bells, followed by 6.2 km of (0°C with a windchill of °-5C).

Firstly, woot! Hit my plank target; figured it was Friday and I should go for it. Sore though.

Opted for a shorter run today to try and save some energy for the long day ahead.

I expect these numbers to fall dramatically in February; I’ll be off on a special project three days a week, plus a week (we’re shooting a movie- Shhh!).

I haven't figured out how to track the stuff yet; per exercise feels like it will add a lot of columns. Maybe number of exercises/time?

January month is in the books with two funemployment runs yesterday evening and this morning.

500.7km and 10700m of EG

I closed a great and amazing work chapter yesterday afternoon. And will start a new one in a couple of days.

Tuesday: 170 seconds of plank, 10 minutes of kettle bells, followed by 11 km of (-6°C with a windchill of -12°C). Grey and overcast, just how I like it.

I typed too soon yesterday; plank was really hard today - barely made the goal time, but the run was great, even if it was a bit messy out. Fastest run of the year and (checks spreadsheet) since my return to running from injury.

"SRF bi de Lüt – Hüttengeschichten" is a series from the Swiss Public Broadcasting Corporation about life in mountain huts. It tells the stories about the people living and working in the huts and mountains, their daily lives and surroundings.

German subs available.

@bergmeister thank you. this is great. and it even works without a VPN. 😀

IIRC the Bavarian public service Television did something similar about huts in the Bavarian Alps, Tirol and Salzburger Land.

Wednesday: 150 seconds of plank, followed by 11 km of (-17°C with a windchill of -25°C).

I'm pleased that I've been able maintain the plank level so far. If I make it through the week, I'll add 10 seconds Monday towards my eventual goal of 200 seconds and see how that goes.

Had a stopped car honk at me as I was crossing an intersection, to ask me to press the beg button for them. 😳

Fresh snow (10-20cm) from this night/morning. Pleasant temperature with -1C (-7C). A little bit of sunshine. But stormy wind. Great run, or should I say speed hike. 😅 About 80s slower per km in all the snow compared to a usual run on those trails. It was lots of fun nevertheless.

@WTL Exactly. And even better if you are the first to leave tracks on pristine snow. Had 5km of that. So much fun.

Saturday: 30 minutes of snow shovelling (I record it as a HIIT workout), followed by 5.48 km of (-3°C with a windchill of -11°C, w/ wind gusting to 45km/hr), came home and sat in my comfy chair and drank a lot of tea.

I think I've invented a new running workout "Snow intervals”, where you run in deep snow until your heart nearly explodes, you stop, then start again. I swear, it's fun. 🤣

@WTL The Swedish word for that workout is “snöpulsning”.

@WTL that workout is nice to do on a golf course after fresh fallen snow.

@WTL I agree on the parks. Luckily there are a couple of them here that are like forested parks. One of them I regularly pass on my trail runs.

Allmansrättan or “Freedom to roam” makes it possible to walk/run/hike through them. Of course without disturbing the players. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freedom_to_roam
