I managed to squeeze in a couple workouts this weekend. But the main activity was cleaning up our garden beds and mulching. Nothing like manual labor to kick your ass. Today is about the first day that I haven't thought it was winter. Not that it was particularly warm, but at least there was some sunshine!

    I forgot what the acronym AFAP stands for - but I have an idea. :23+ with fins is pretty ridiculous - even if you may think otherwise. Nicely done.

    And yes - garden work is somehow deceivingly hard. A few hours is all it takes. They should have a Garmin setting for it.

    Thanks. AFAP = as fast as possible

    I should create a flog entry for gardening, I do so much of it. I find the manual labor kind of peaceful and cathartic though.

    <br>If I think the yard work counts for "drylands" I record it under "other" in the flog.<br>I don't count simple stuff, but if I move a lot of stones/pavers, dig out stumps, cut up a lot of tree limbs or other arduous stuff, I track it because it definitely impacts my practices for the next couple of days.

    Hauling bags of mulch is definitely weigh lifting! And digging tree stumps is serious stuff.
