Induction at Newburn Climbing Wall. As a development of a strength and conditioning program based around primal, evolutionary movement skills, the hunter gatherer activities evolutionary biology designed us for. Great facility. The auto belay took a surprising amount of bottle to sit into at the top.
Been working on my bushcraft-making char cloth for primitive firelighting with flint and a steel striker. And got to build a lean to shelter with my fencing instructor and archery pal Mark Oswald and his crew.
I've been experimenting with various types of fasting for a couple of years and am due to complete my first 5 day fast tomorrow, so it's great to hear the awesome Steve Maxwell championing the benefits of intermittent fasting. Its interesting he touches on how fasting can be the best treatment for a cold as it was a heavy cold that prompted me to start my longest fast so far. It cleared up within 2 days. He makes some excellent points about 'habit hunger' as a primary source of confusion around our dietary habits. So far its been a very positive experience for me and I consider it a very valuable tool for promoting health and longevity. Its also a fundamental paleo specific concept, so right up my street.
Part time work hours is da bomb, bitchiz. I got to spend the day doing MovNat basics with the addition of cycling and swimming in the river. I tentatively experimented going totally barefoot up in the fells, practicing MovNat basic drills and carefully jogging for a short distance. A much more involved, organic experience and an enjoyable alternative to my usual wheezing stagger masquerading as a run.
