Good day, Shredders!
Today was a busy day of sightseeing for me. My project partner picked me up from my apartment just before lunch, and we first drove to a lookout over the city in the Adelaide Hills (a bit higher up and further out compared to the one I went to on day 132). Then we drove the short distance to a very nice wildlife park, where I got to interact closely with many native Australian animals like bandicoots, potoroos, wallabies, emus, and of course, kangaroos and koalas. I was even able to feed a few of them, like the wallaby and emu below.
I tried to feed a pelican too, but the bird doesn’t seem to like the food.
After the wildlife park, we then drove down the hills to an old town at the mouth of the river Murray, and then drove back to Adelaide through acres of vineyards. Finally, we had a nice dinner at the local pub.
I tried sticking with my meal schedule, but it sort of drifted as we drove all around the countryside, and I had to skip one (substituting some mixed nuts I brought with me) as it became too close to dinner time. I did make it up though with my last meal at the pub (grilled chicken and avocado with mashed potatoes), so my caloric intake shouldn’t have been too far off.
I wanted to do some cardio today, but as I didn’t know my schedule for the day, I had that floating for whatever time became available. As it turned out, the only time I had was late at night after arriving home, so I drove to the beach jogging path and did 20 minutes of HIIT running at a quarted before 10. It was the first time here in Adelaide that I jogged in the dark! It was a bit cold as well, but at least I didn’t feel tired immediately because of that. For some reason too, my running gait seems to have improved again so I was able to take care of my still aching legs.
Hope your weekends are going well! Keep shredding everyone!
