”Keep close to Nature’s heart… and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.”
– John Muir –
Almost chickened out on doing today’s planned hike to ”my” cave on the Pipe Track. Knowing that going up there alone in a thick mist might not be the smartest thing almost got to me. But, hey since when did doing the smart thing start being equal to what I chose to do?
Funny how things work, I used to be this guy who loved the sun, still do, but so much that I couldn’t even think about going out if there was the slightest drizzle in the air. Now, all of a sudden I’m really enjoying the early days of winter down here. Pushed the tempo quite hard, and without having planned to do so, I reached the cave within 40 minutes of my start. A new ”PB” by at least 10-15 mins I would guess.. 😉
Didn’t wanna spend too much time at the cave risk getting cold, obviously enjoyed my breakfast Dark Ritter Sport and some meditation before I headed back though.
On my way down the drizzle turned into a light rain, but today I couldn’t care less. Strolled down in a slow pace since I knew I was a bit early for my needling appointment with Dr. Stuart.
So, end of my recovery week tomorrow when I will kick start the system with a hopefully intense metcon of Tire Flips and Rope Climbs! Shoulder has been very iffy and not quite improving as I was hoping during this week without any work for it, until today! It feels so much better after the needling today, and that’s a first as well when it comes to this specific injury. Fingers crossed and I can hopefully start pushing my self harder and harder from now on when it comes to upper body work as well…
