🎶Go your way
I'll take the long way 'round
I'll find my own way down
As I should
And hold your gaze
There's coke in the Midas touch
A joke in the way that we rust
And breathe again
And you'll find loss
And you'll fear what you found
When the weather comes
There'll be oats in the water
There'll be birds on the ground
There'll be things you never asked her
Oh how they tear at you now🎶 ... Oats in the water - Ben Howard

Taken above Brotherswater at the Red Pit car park, on the A592 Kirkstone pass.
This time without @s888tvn and his fantastic M4.
Looking North down into the valley, looking down onto Hartsop, Bridgend, Patterdale, Glenridding. Only Hartsop and Bridgend in view....just.
Music 🥁 🎵- we have plenty of other things going on during the show to get you in to the summer festival spirit. They are a community drumming group who have been drumming together for nearly fifteen years,
exploring and passing on their love of Taiko, by teaching, workshops and performance. We are very fortunate to have these guys rolling by the show. Hard to beat #thunderdrummers#taikodrummers#boatshow2019#windermereboatshow#bowness#cumbria#lakedistrict

Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday dear Ekundayo, Happy Birthday to you.....😍😍🎁 Well, I'm getting a little hoarse from all this singing with the amount of "another year older" celebrations we have had recently! But little Ekundayo is definitely worth it.
Kordofan Giraffe Ekundayo was born here at Safari Zoo and turns the big "2" today, his mum Eloise lives with the lady tower in our Africa house and little "Ekun" shares his home with Kofi, also here at Safari Zoo. Here's some throwback shots from his earlier days.
Only an estimated 1400 Kordofan Giraffes remain in the wild and populations have declined by more than 80% in the last three decades, these guys are classified at Critically Endangered. In 2017 only 46 Kordofan Giraffes remained in Garamba National Park, the last remaining in the Congo. Numbers had more than halved from over 100 in 2008. Poaching is a major threat to giraffes, Giraffes are hunted for their meat, hide and tails. The tails are used as good luck bracelets, offered as dowrys and used as string for sewing beads. It is not uncommon for a Giraffe to be killed for their tail alone - Documentary film maker David Hamlin recounted a visit to the Garamba National Park in the Congo (National Geographic, 2016) and the exhilarating moment he caught sight of 3 of the remaining wild Kordofan giraffes, 12 hours later, rangers heard gunshots leading to the discovery of 3 dead Kordofan Giraffes, bodies fully entact and only the ends of their tails missing.
Garamba National Park was also home for the last remaining Northern White Rhino, now extinct in the wild and with only 2 females remaining in captivity - essentially they are gone forever. It's not too late for the Kordofan’s yet, but they need our help before it is!
I’ve learned that today is World Poetry Day. I’m not really a huge poetry fan but I have always liked this one, and it seems kind of relevant at the minute...
One day people will touch and talk perhaps
And loving be natural as breathing and warm as
And people will untie themselves, as string is unknotted,
Unfold and yawn and stretch and spread their fingers,
Unfurl, uncurl like seaweed returned to the sea,
And work will be simple and swift
as a seagull flying,
And play will be casual and quiet
as a seagull settling,
And the clocks will stop, and no one will wonder
or care or notice,
And people will smile without reason,
Even in winter, even in the rain.

We are a society that loves numbers. We like track everything. Even our dominoes delivery to our door!
When it comes to fitness it's no different:
- Apple Watch
To name just a few!
Seeing that number post workout gives us immediate validation of the work you have put in and it motivates you; gives you a level of accountability...pushes you harder... All good stuff!
And the stats show that when it comes to steps and measuring your heart rate generally speaking, trackers are pretty good! It's these variables you can measure with more confidence so if one session your output is higher than other sessions, you can deduce that your effort or the intensity of the workout was better.
However, when it comes to nutrition... people are using those numbers under the impression they are an accurate measure of energy output...otherwise known and calories... Not to dishearten you but they aren't!
It’s vary hard to determine the exact calories you burn during exercise. So to use this data to predict how much you should eat is a dangerous game.
At the end of the day, your effort is what matters when training. And when it comes to nutrition, it may require a little bit of trial and error to calibrate just how much energy you're expending...
When using your watch to monitor your calorie output maybe try using it as a guide of work rate rather than taking that 600 cal 40 min workout as gospel!! But compare it to the last 40 min session you did...
Lastly, if you're a MyFitness Pal Junkie, remember to disable the activity tracking function...don’t get caught out!!
