    Cheers Fred. I'm just moving until I can't. No goals scribbled down and no meets scheduled.

    Notes I'm heading out tomorrow for the rest of the week, leading a saw team as we log out trails in the local Wilderness. Not high mileage days, but long days cutting and clearing everything manually (no power tools). So I need a bit of a respite before we start, but I wanted to get these squats in.

    - PC - Skipped. See note above.

    Have you read the book The Comfort Crisis, by Michael Easter? You might like it (based on what I read above).

    I haven't read it. Just scanning the synopsis (and a few reviews), it looks like he'd be preaching to the choir.

    One thing that we are not adverse to in this house is discomfort, both mental and physical. I openly embrace Type II Fun, while my wife tolerates it if there's a point. She really is a tough cookie, but just didn't grow up pushing boundaries like I did, so she's not naturally inclined to seek Type II events out. But when I suggest, as I did a couple of winters ago, that we needed to test our survival gear that we carry while back country snowboarding, she toughed out a +10F night up on the mountain to make sure we were OK. She immediately followed with a "let's not do that again", meaning "let's never get in a situation where we need to do that." I can't disagree. But she now knows that she can do it if she needs to, and that's the important part.

    A long weekend of logging out a local Wilderness trail. Each and every one of the trees gave us fits in their own special ways. In other words, we were planning on clearing about 9 miles of trail, but got about half of that.

    Trees like the one that we dubbed "Orange Julius" were the main culprits.

    That bugger broke off sometime over the autumn/winter and spent the winter collecting snowmelt down its entire length, quickly rotting the center. What should have been a smooth 45-minute or so cut all the way through would take 2 hours. For four cuts.

    The lifting that I do and log here was an immense help. We had a very dense 24" diameter 20-foot length of cut log that we needed to move that was not cooperating. Two grown adult men had a strap wrapped around the front and couldn't get it lifted a couple of inches to force the front over a log lying crosswise. So I got down, wrapped my arms around it, locked fingers, locked the lats and back, vasalva'd, and lifted it over. It was heavy as hell, but no different than a heavy deadlift. There were several audible gasps from the crew.

    I'm taking a break for a couple of days before lifting again.

    Music — Eulogy In Blood Vs Slayer, Bloodline; DevilDriver vs Metallica, Holier Than Thou; Tormenter vs Testament, Over The Wall; World Under Blood vs Megadeth, Wake Up Dead; Pallbearer vs Type O Negative, Love You To Death.

    Notes — Back at it. I picked up the program as if I had run it continuously, just skipping those workouts that I would have done during that time that I was out on crew. I only missed heavy triples on Bench last week, plus a Rack Pull session, then earlier this week heavy Singles on Overhead Press and Squats. But during that break, I did get plenty of work in those areas, so I should be good with this, although I apparently dropped 5lbs of body weight over the week.
    - BP - Heavy Singles across. Overall, smooth and steady. The last rep slowed on the way up, but there was never any doubt. All good.
    - OP - Light sets across. All good.

    That was a bugger! We've cut quite a bit bigger, but those are usually good wood all the way through, not truly rotten to the core like this one was. Thanks CP!
