Good training buddy, man you are getting a serious amount of beach volleyball in.

 

Don't rush back, it's bloody freezing here!

Loving the BVB! So good being able to dive, and not fear for too many repercussions

Me and my jogged a lot of the way back, we couldnt find our friends we got a ride with so were worried but turns out they had told people they were turning back, the message just didnt quite reach us Not too much elevation overall but the jog made it tougher. Will post the couple of pics I took below.

Thanks for the heads up regarding the stickied posts, the other thing you mentioned might take a little longer as I'll have to look into how I could do that.

 

All good in the hood?

 

No worries! All good in this hood mate, crazy busy, seems to be something happening everyday then when there isn't I just wanna chillax

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

 

As above, everything has been hectic! Two weeks later I have finally got a bed and bedding, few nights I spent on the floor cause I'm stubborn

 

Last 5 days (excluding today which is rest day (although did bike home from Ikea with Sheets, Duvet and pillows which would have looked ridiculous)!).

Saturday: Hike out at Bowen Island (only 8km, but walking around rest of island added up)

 

Sunday: Beach Volleyball

 

Monday: Gym

Incline Press - 75x8, 105x10,105x10, 105x10

Shrugs: 90x25, 90x25, 9x25, 90x25

 

Tuesday: Rugby Training, 1st one in over 7 years! Pretty much was 90 minutes of touch, but my legs are still feeling it!)

 

Wednesday: Pitch and Putt Golf, think its the 2nd time Ive played this year.

 

So not a lot of gym happening, but Ive decided thats cool cause apparently the winter here means lots more indoor time so I shall make the most of it!

 

Couple photos:

 

1st: From the top of Grouse Mountain looking over back towards Vancouver.

 

2nd: A cool fallen tree trunk fallen in a lake at Bowen Island.

Crap session today, about 15 minutes in I wasnt feeling it at all. Was a combo of a bunch of things I think.

1/ Hadnt eaten much that day (was late to work so couldnt get to supermarket) so was hungry going into gym

2/ Wellington got hit with a good size earthquake 30 mins before I got there so was thinking about that alot (mind wasnt on the job)

3/ Minimal sleep previous night

 

So a recipe for disaster, I did some Arnold presses, bench press and elbow rehab though so all was not lost!

 

Happy Ive stayed over 150lb thus far, hopefully I thats some lower resistance and I dont drop below that again
