Media - exercise
I'm sure it probably didn't cancel out lunch, but jesus, no wonder I'm exhausted.

And now, I've just hit a 1000-day move streak on my Apple Watch! That's every single full day since I got my Watch at the end of September in 2019 (https://virtualwolf.org/media/posts/1111). 😁 (It's also a thousand fully-closed exercise rings, and will be a thousand fully-closed standing rings in two hours time as well.)

I am now officially discharged from the exercise physiologist! 🎉 When we started a few months ago, she had a "force meter" device where it was attached to my ankle at the front and I'd sit down and pull as hard as I could backwards. My right leg measured ~13kg and my left was 11kg. Today we did it again, and the right leg was 20kg and the left was 24kg! I'm not at the point yet where I'm able to have the elliptical up to where I used to use it (previously I was at 12˚ incline, 14 resistance out of a maximum of 20, right now I'm at 2˚ incline with 7 resistance) but that'll just be a matter of building up to it. 💪🏻

For the first time I think possibly this year I've actually been able to watch an entire episode of something on my iPad while using the elliptical! 🎉 You have no idea how happy this makes me, since COVID hit I was doing it every day after work until I buggered up my right knee towards the end of last year. Ended up going to a physiotherapist followed by like two months of twice-weekly exercise physiologist. Tomorrow's my last regular visit, then I'll just pop in for a check-up every fortnight for a bit, then it should be smooth sailing! I'm still not at the amount of incline and resistance on the elliptical that I was doing before, but that's just a case of building up to it now.

Managed a personal best after this team event, haha. It involved more walking around the city than the last one, and I was able to walk home from the train station as well.

Between walking to the station this morning, going from the office to the bowling alley then over to Barangaroo for lunch, then back to the office, and an hour on the elliptical watching the new Wheel of Time episode... CHRIST. It'd have been even more except Kristina picked me up from the station because it was raining. First time I've hit gotten the 400% move goal award on my Apple Watch!

Ok, that's it, I can no longer move from this spot tonight.

BOOOOOOOOOM, that's two straight years of closing all three rings on my Apple Watch! 🎉💪🏻

Well, that was definitely a busy day.

So I finished watching all of Star Trek: The Next Generation in September of 2020 (https://virtualwolf.org/media/posts/1420), and tonight have finished watching all seven seasons of Deep Space Nine! I think this was my favourite Trek, I liked the darker and more shades of grey versus the unbridled optimism of TNG. As with TNG, it's always sad to finish a series you've been watching for ages. I bought the "What We Left Behind" documentary they made about DS9 a few years back, going to watch that on the weekend.
