25 minutes.

Another good walk, although I was much tighter today than last week; I'm sure from the heavier snatches I did yesterday. Probably a good idea to do Rifga first and then walk.Hammies and calves were tight from the start although everything was good until the last block or so when things just got very tight. SO:

Rifga stretches; 15 min.

lots of attention to hammies and calves.

timed the walk so I started just as the sun started to rise. love being outside in the very early morning when things are so quiet,still and clean.

Still need to stretch more a bit later.

Beautiful. Early morning is my favorite time of day. It is the most special time of day for me.

I'm in Edinburgh, Scotland. There are some nice little hills - the Pentlands- just outside the city that I often go up early on a Sunday morning. Yesterday was beautiful. A little snow on the ground, which was pink with the rising sun. I do more hillwalking in the summer further north too.

I use a kettlestack rather than a kettlebell but do other things too - sprints, deadlifts, thrusters, chins etc. Kettlebells are not that easy to get hold of in the Uk and the kettlestack is pretty versatile.
