Saturday the 30th was forecast to be a little warmer (0 °C) with just a little chance of snow, so it was a good opportunity for my colleagues from Manila and I to go see the Old Town (Stare Miasto) of Gdańsk, the main city in the region. Though we started a bit late (after a night of bowling and drinking Friday night with our business partners), we were able to see quite a bit. Though the temperature reached as high as 3 °C (positive at last) just past midday, it quickly got much colder as the sun began to hide behind clouds in the afternoon. By the time we finished, it was as chilly as -6 °C.
Today Sunday the 31st, we then went to see Sopot, the third town in the “Tricity” (with Gdynia, where I am staying). It is a seaside resort/spa town, the most famous in Poland, so there were many people walking about on this sunny day. However, the temperature stayed at -6 °C. I was able to get some interesting pictures though.
Right after we got back from our visit to Sopot, I went to the gym to do a mostly “push” routine:
- Barbell jump shrugs (4X3)
- Bulgarian split squats (10, 8, 8, 6)
- Reverse-grip barbell bench presses (10, 8, 8, 6)
- Dumbbell push presses (10, 8, 8, 6)
- Corkscrews (4X10)
- Planks (30s, 35s, 40s, 45s)
I finished just as the gym closed at 17:00, and walked back out into the chilly night air.
