Slow, slow jog down to the lake and back over to the gym. Oh, the lilacs!

Free weights and core.
Gravel Bike 40:00  6.5 mi (9.7 mph)

Meant for the lungs, heart and intestines. What happened to hips and hamstrings?
Anyway, mostly upper body stuff, esp shoulders.
Gravel Bike 4:08:00  49.35 mi (11.9 mph)
The grand loop on mostly rail trails which are probably a lot safer to be on than roads on this weekend that is known for notoriously bad decisions behind the wheel.
We followed a rain cloud for the first third but only had wet trail to deal with, but no actual rain. At Oldcastle, we were very excited to see that an extension is being added to the Greenway that will connect it to the Herb Grey Parkway path, thereby avoiding a ride along a shoulderless road.
I stopped to adjust one cleat 2/3 of the way through and that felt better.
We took turns pulling on the last 4 miles or so into the wind.
So nice to ride in shorts, fingerless gloves and a short sleeved jersey :)
Pretty cool that the background pic on the sign in page on Strava is the Old Man of Coniston.....on a less foggy day than when I went up there last September.
Gravel Bike 2:15:00  26.2 mi (11.6 mph)
Rain at 4 pm meant I was done work early!
The wind certainly didn't die down as the rain went through. About 8:30 pm, Paul and I set off on the Greenway with the intent to ride in the dark. And when we were tired (I have been stumbling into bed by 9:30 lately, so this was a very late night for me).
I will mention that hearing the BOOM of fireworks close to the trail (before I clued in to the source of the noise) was startling (I am sure Queen Victoria was honoured, as usual).
Clear safety glasses without an anti glare coating this time did the trick. Paul's Bontrager handlebar light made it look like a train was coming down the trail, but like all bike/hiking lights, it wears down the juice exponentially quickly at the top brightness. One setting lower works fine too. I had put Paul's Light&Motion light on my helmet (hadn't tried it out that way yet) and it is fine, but not as strong as my heavier Seras light.
Gym time 20:00 
Upper body free weights and core stuff.
Restorative (for the soul) gardening time in the twilight.
