Liben Lark, Archer's Lark, Sidamo Lark - whatever you call this bird it is one of Africa's rarest species. Fewer than 250 individuals of this boldly patterned songbird are left snaking their way through the short dry grass of the Liben plains. More at home on the ground than in the air, we spent several hours searching this dusty expanse before finding one sprinting through inch high vegetation in search of food. Spending an hour or so patiently lying on the ground resulted in this individual scurrying within ten feet of our slackened jaws. When staring into oblivion, stand tall and stare defiantly back. Hope to see you again soon.
Max height (or depth?) 3 rep strict deficit handstand push-ups. Last time I did it I got my shoulders stuck on the plates, so opted for paralettes. Always loved being upside down, it keeps me calm, and more than happy with that result.
By the last few rounds, I felt like a lot of the tension has moved from my shoulder to my wrists (which was a pretty bad feeling), so I changed up the distance between the paralettes just before that. Had one attempt and I realized I can't reach it, but it was probably just fear. It was really high, I kicked the pull-up bar on the way down. The final rep actually had me engaging my back more than anything else. I wonder if I could go significantly deeper than that.
Swipe right to see what I thought would be the max effort for the day, to be gladly wrong. Music by @lukebryan for today.
