Morning walk with the dog 1h 5 min.

Body weight traning 1h 25 min. I was starting using DBs to make it challenging enough, so this time I did 20 rep instead of 15. I dropped the fourth exercise. Effective. PWO: 20g pp, 5 dl raspberry/grape/aronia juice.* In the description I gave about the workout, I failed to mention that the breaks are 30 sec. Body weight exercises aren't as hard as with weights, so to make it a good workout I use short breaks (makes good cardio exercise too  8) ). New also, were more strethes; to include front of hip and another one for the back. Important ones so they should be part of the routine. I need new ways to stretch parts of my body too, they don't work well anymore. I've never been this flexible in my entire life!  :)

*44% grapes, 29% apple, 20% raspberries, 5% aronia, 1% strawberries, 1% red currant berries.

Afternoon/evening walk with the dog up the mountain. Fortunately the snow in the lower areas disappeared. Uphill and fun.  :) 1 h.

6 km jog this morning. Cold wind, but otherwise milder. PWO: 1,5 dl juice / 7,5 dl juice. PWO2: 5 dl juice, chicken breast. Short on time. It's been a busy day.

Evening walk up the same mountain as yesterday, 1h 5 min. Loved it. I'm gonna miss this the most when winter comes. About that, I'm already starting to worry about getting my runs done. It get's cold around here. I worry too much, but I wish I could move to NZ or something to avoid the whole thing and just keep doing what I'm doing.

Good night! I'm beat.  :)

If you think the weather is better in NZ you are dreaming.  We had snow yesterday!  Suze

Come to Southern California.  The temperatures were over 100  (38 C) for about 7 days.  It was too hot to sleep at night with temperature 85 (29 C)
It is now about 70 (21 C)

It maybe global warming but the California almond growers say it will be one of their best years for growing almonds.  Same for the rice growers (but rice isn't paleo)

Really? I thought you guys had summer when we have winter?  ??? ...And this is when I remembered it's still early September.  :-X I've always thought living in Europe half the year and on NZ the other half, as perfect deal - the nature being similiar and summer year around. Is that possible?

21 C sounds great to me.  8) But, yeah, hehe, 38 C is a tad much.  :-\ You know, it can get too cold to sleep too...  :(  But I guess it's still better since you can dress to keep the cold off.

Soo... I suppose my new wish is to get rich quickly and buy my own treadmill. Yep, as if.  :(

Yeah- you and Suze are in high enough latitudes, though in different hemispheres, that you both can get snow at the same time!   :o  I'd rather live on the Equator, although at a kilometer or two up from sea level, so it's not so darned hot all the time.   Not very picky, am I?   ;D

Soo... I suppose my new wish is to get rich quickly and buy my own treadmill. Yep, as if.  :(

KP?  You have all that gorgeous mountain scenery, and easy accessibility to hike in it, and you want to get a treadmill?!?   But I guess it does get a little too cold there in the Winter, for comfortable hiking..  I have no such excuse in San Diego- yes, it does get hot, as Al says, but for most of the year, it's comfortable outside.

I'd love to live in Europe (France or Italy) part of the year and NZ, AU and the States part of the year.

So I have to ask:  Are the rumors true?  Does the water really go down the drain the opposite direction south of equator?

I dunno.  Next time I have a bath I'll check. Which way is opposite though?  Suze

You're not satisfied with San Diego?  :D I'd definitely adopt the Jack Sparrow style if I moved to those latitudes, even if I (likely...) got mocked for it.  8) That would be the icing on the cake.  Heck, I'd love to join you! 8) Mob country, though, isn't it? Especially higher up. Or cannibal tribes in Asia. Hope the latter is just a myth.

Hiking in winter? Only by snow shoes or on skis! Most of the mountains are "off limits" in winter due to how to steep they are. The worst thing is still that it varies between slush, ice, really cold, really mild and also heavy snowing. The roads are ridiculously dangerous to run on; nature on it's own, narrow roads and the cars...

There is absolutely no stability in the weather here in winter. It really is annoying to work up a good stamina from jogging and then not knowing at all if you will be able to keep doing it and definitely not be able to plan the workouts. The best runners move to Mexico in winter...

Evening hike up the same mountain, with the same date. It was a little slippery and wet today. Funny how much more fun it is the better shape I'm in (wonder why). It amazes me how much I enjoy hiking up there. I use orienteering shoes since the track is really poor, but it's nice. 1 h.

Body weight training. Another version of it. 1h 30 min. I got on the bike for the warmup and I just wanted to keep going. The hike gave me a lot of energy. PWO: 20 g pp, 5 dl juice.

I should really get to bed. It's past midnight.

6 km jog. Strong wind and rain - of course I was running against the wind through all uphills. PWO: 1,5 dl juice/ 7 dl juice.
