The WOD: glacier walk

Exercise has been lax since I hurt my back on Tuesday and since I'm on vacation in Iceland. However today's itinerary included a 2 hr glacier walk which I'm calling my WOD for today. We only walked about 2 km and stopped at certain points to see the ice formations and the black lava ash that settled around the region. The ash was more like rich black soil and is actually used as fertilizer. The walk was fun albeit cold. We used crampons and carried ice picks more for stability than any actual ice chipping/climbing. It was actually pretty strenuous walking uphill on the glacier. Afterward we had lobster soup to warm us up.
