The Lake District is the most popular and also the one I'm closest to in terms of "mountains" (although the highest mountains are only between 800 and 1000 meters in the UK). The lack of height is made up by the amount of variation and accessibility - i.e. people attempt "rounds" and to "bag" multiple mountains in a route or across a life time. In the Lake District many walkers attempt bag "Wainwrights" which are the 214 hills that Alfred Wainwright described in his books, while in Scotland they bag "Munros" which are the 282 mountains over 3,000 feet in Scotland first listed by Sir Hugh Munro.

There are also lots of long distance trails that people take multiple weeks to walk, similar to the Appalachian or Pacific Crest trails but given the amount of land we have - much shorter.

been feeling kinda run down lately mentally, cranky and shitty

got a 97kg snatch PR on monday but took one too many attempts at a heavy clean and jerk so I've been gassed for a few days. Kinda not wanting to even see a barbell for the past few days, just stay home and play guitfiddle.

Still hitting daily minimum numbers within 5-10kg of my bests without too much difficulty or soreness, just did me a short workout today scaling back the volume. Already starting to feel better. :greenie:

well this all sounds magical and great :ba: you've got me reading a bit about the lake district national park, i would love to visit it one day. it seems the british take their hikes very seriously :judge:

i hiked a bit of the appalachian trail a couple of weeks ago. that makes about six miles total :occifer: would love to do a thru-hike sometime but i doubt i'll ever have five or six free months, plus enough in savings. if you get a chance i recommend coming over and hiking a stretch :santa:

I had a recurring knee tweak this month and I've been going to PT to fix. Almost healed, so I've been hammering other lifts besides the canary quad tremors.

Should be good to start loading the squarsh today.

Cycling and weights in this period. Losing weight slowly, down to 74kg now.

Planning day hikes as well.

No impressive lifts, with my weight down strength is down too, benched 95kg x2 the other day, most I've tried in a long time. squarsh 100kg x6, probably had a few more there but not pushing it, aim is just volume and a balance to help aid fat loss.

i've been doing more and more again as I recover from a knee injury. Physio +kinesio tape and lots of hip stretching has been doing me good, pain is pretty much gone now.

made a 10rm pause squarsh pr lately, 120kg

Currently only 3-4x week as I am approaching my phd candidacy exam, but after that I am increasing the frequency and loading.

went for a good solid run this morning. only the second since moving last month :shock: and only the second this year :eek:

it rained in the night and conditions were even soggier than usual. the park we live by runs along a creek in a floodplain, so the fog was dense and the humidity heavy. an absolute swamp :ickface:

i somehow managed about three miles at a touch over nine minutes per mile. i will accept this result :beer:

i went for a run in the afternoon yesterday, during the heat

it was going well but then i took a new trail and wound up back on a different road than i expected

and then i thought i was turning back onto the right road. but, no, it turns out that road has two different independent segments

so i spent the next 45 minutes thinking i was running (and walking) closer to home when i was actualy getting farther away :homework:

good exercise though

I've taken a month long break. A lot of it has to do with a shoulder pain I've been experiencing. Don't know what it is, probably a sprain but it's been bothering me for a month. It hurts slightly when I move my arm over to the other side, and definitely hurts when I lift.

went for about a six-mile run this morning. it was probably a bit less than that but the great majority was in a park & i can't map it so who knows

anyway it was a good long run to do after being sick for a week, i am pleased :serenity:

hang snatch 70kg 5x3
clean 95kg 4x3
behind the neck split jerk (2nd day doing them) 90kg 3x3
front spaghetti quad tremors 115kg 3x4, should be good for 120 next week

my squatting is not as strong as it should be tho

The doctor said it was an inflammation of some tendon, something like that, bursitis. Isn't that supposed to heal up? I got an Xray done I don't have a fracture. So why should this pain last so long...

The human body is complicated I guess. I've had x-rays, ultrasounds, MRI's, massages, physical therapy... no better.

I just train around my injuries now.

Unsolicited advice:
1. Benchpress, if you can - find a variation that works for you. I can only do flat bench with a wide grip, I do 1-5 sets per week with a heavy weight and no more than that. I still get stronger when I put the effort in.

2. When I do train shoulders I don't do overhead pressing movements, I just can't do these without pain. Instead I do the following for high volume:
a. Side raises on a cable machine, I lift the weight handle only slightly to the side of my body.
b. Upright rows with a wide grip on a bar, sometimes I also do these with a heavy dumbbell (20kg or so)
c. Lying face pulls. These feel great for me, much better than rear raises. I go somewhat slow/controlled and do sets of 12+ repetitions.

3. Pull ups or any rowing movement, if arms overhead hurt then do seated rows instead but lots of volume.

We're not all built to have the most balanced physiques, there's always something you can train with things are repairing themselves, even if my injuries don't seem to do that.

If any of the above seems too much for you then I'd go see a physical therapist for some exercises and further advice.

Some cases of bursitis involve draining the fluid sac that builds up around the area. Swimming is supposed to help with shoulder injuries like that if it doesn't aggravate it. And training around it and doing other lifts that don't aggravate it is a good idea, promoting circulation.

Joints/connective tissue are avascular so they don't heal nearly as fast as other things due to the very low blood supply. Certain injuries won't improve at all on their own without surgery like meniscus tears or full tendon ruptures.

My knee injury happened in Feb/March and I've only been lifting approximately fully pain-free for the last month, squatting 130kg now hurts less than 45kg did about 3 weeks after the injury. Pain barrier was raised gradually, my PT says it's a process of pushing until you find it and retreating, repeating. It takes time. Probably would've taken longer if I did absolutely no exercise.

Literally why I bought my own equipment and moved to a place where I could lift without noise complaints. Paid for itself already basically. Not being able to do stuff past 8-9pm at my regular gym got really annoying.

i ran a footrace yesterday, for the first time in many months

it was a trail run and i was inadequately prepared. this resulted in my slowest-ever race time

also i tripped on a root in the 6th mile and fell into a barrel roll and bruised my back and knee pretty good

however finishing was quite a satisfying thing :beer:

onto the next race
