Hotel Nouvel to Park Güell
12:16 AM; Barcelona, Spain

20.1 °C; Clear
Park Güell was on my bucket list for Barcelona and since we did not have enough time, I made this today's running destination. I thought that today's run would be relatively easy compared to yesterday's climb up to the top of Montjuic. Not so, as I approached my destination, I was confronted by an interminable looking stairway. It did have a working escalator going up along the stairs but I'm too proud to use mechanical means. As I huffed and puffed up the stairs, interrupted by a short section of a steep road, I had the opportunity to contemplate that running up stairs is easier then running up a step-less incline of similar steepness. One I stepped off the last stair thread, I was confronted by a signe that pointed down hill to another entrance, because the one where I arrived was closed due to construction. Oh well, more training effect. The reward was being able to run through Gaudi's beautifully quirky structures and up yet more stairs to reach the very pinnacle of the park. Awesome, albeit somewhat exhausting way to start the day.

Walking Around La Pedrera
2:46 AM; Barcelona, Spain

26.6 °C; Clear
Went to visit Casa Mila aka La Pedrera. I pushed for an early slot but even at 10 AM, the place was full. At least, there were no lines. Very impressive structure, like everything by Gaudi I have seen thus far. Hard to take pictures though, people in the way everywhere. After we were done with our visit, we headed north, to Eglisia Sant Joan, stopping on the way back on Placa del La Vila de Gracia, where we stumbled into a Catalan happening involving Castell, or human pyramid building. We arrived as one was just at its apex, and then two more being built in succession. Ont eh way back, we ate lunch and looked at several other local Art Nouveau houses.

Hotel Nouvel to Playa Barceloneta
11:21 PM; Barcelona, Spain

15.8 °C; Cloudy
Needed an easy day after having two hard hill segments during the previous days. Ran to the beach and waded for about 500 m in the knee to hip-deep water, which felt good and provided a little relief to my sore quads. Returned via La Rambla, which is nice and quiet this early in the day. Will be another travel day, heading for Belgium, to see relatives before returning to the Barcelona area.

Hotel Nouvel to Picasso Museum
3:44 AM; Barcelona, Spain

26.1 °C; Clear
I screwed up picking the right date for the right visit. Thought that Picasso was today and Gaudi tomorrow. They let us in at the Museum, which was great but I had t hurry back to get the Sagrada Familia tickets.

Hotel Nouvel to Castell de Montjuïc
11:50 PM; Barcelona, Spain

15.4 °C; Clear
First workout in Europe, a worthy goal, to jog up Montjuïc Not bad, about 150 m of climbing, a lot of it steep or on stairs. Rewarded by beautiful views of the city, the harbor and the Mediterranean. Very comfortable running temps at around 12 C. Ran into a park through an open gate, the gates towards the other side were closed, fortunately, I found a hole in the fence through which I could crawl to continue my ascent to Castell de Montjuic. Great way to start our first full day in Spain. Later this morning we're headed to the Picasso museum, so a lot more walking.

McMurray Field
6:03 AM; Hamline Midway/Como Park

14.7 °C; Clear
Lovely and mild morning, scents of spring blossoms wafting in the air and a hint of summer. Last walk for the dogs before trip to Europe. I doubt that James will give them as much time. They took full attention of my time with them, having about 3 km off leash. As the siberian corydalis wilts, it is being replaced with the next invasive, garlic mustard.

Home to Midway Animal Hospital
3:57 PM; Hamline Midway

29.7 °C; Clear
Repeat of this morning's destination, forgot my wallet at home then and needed to pay the piper, in this case the vet. Dogs had a clean bill of health, nice chat about our various animals with the staff. Just like this morning, the dogs appreciated the treats and pets they got, without the pricks from various vaccinations and blood tests.

Yoga Sculpt
7:03 AM; Minneapolis-St. Paul

12.0 °C;
Very small group this morning and a reversed gender balance: four guys and one gal. And no music, the sound of heavy breathing is balm for my ears! Good workout, with a lot of one-sided exercises like one legged and side planks. Those one-legged exercises are important for me to help improve my balance, which is my Achilles heel for skate skiing.

TCC to YMCA Elliptical
6:34 AM; Downtown Minneapolis


From TCC bike park to YMCA lateral elliptical. The usual drill, brisk walk from TCC to the Y, 14:00 on the elliptical with 3 x 1:30 at level 15. I used the machine on the left on top floor, noticed that the left arm for upper body had some play. Let one of the attendants know. Always working up a good sweat on that machine.

Cool and lovely morning. Last ride to work for the next two weeks. Will probably be a lot warmer next time I ride to work.

TCC to Home
3:38 PM; Minneapolis-St. Paul

25.8 °C; Clear
Warm and sunny, couldn't quite figure out the wind. It was blowing into my face on going north down the bridge on the campus connector towards Como and then again going south, along Snelling. Got another confirmation that most semi drivers are among the best and most courteous. Had one slow down and wave me through when I was getting ready to cross one of the entrances on the bridge.

Energy Park Short
4:15 PM; Hamline Midway/Frogtown

Quite a bit of running mixed in, calling it a run because of that. The smells of spring are everywhere, so many different trees, bushes and flowers in full bloom.
