11 AM


An easy walk up to Grassi Lakes with Carbon and her parents.
Soooo nice that the smoke cleared out and we can see the mountains again. It has been so long since we've had such a clear day that I had forgotten how great the mountains look; they seemed new again.

Then a guided sightseeing float trip down part of the Bow River with Carbon and Carbon's dad, from below Bow Falls to about 7 or 8 km downstream, pulling out along the golf course road. Fun to see the various mountains and the hoodoos from a different perspective, and great to scope out the river for our own future paddle from Banff to Canmore. Barely a Class I rapid here or there, there might be one little section or two where you could try to make a Class II of it and barely make a splash by hitting it hard in just the right spot; you're biggest challenge would be avoiding shallow spots. Would be a beautiful trip. There are really nice, calm put-ins on gentle beach just below the public parking at Bow Falls.

Biking (Mountain) 1:30:00 [2] 15.0 km (6:00 / km)

Rebound group ride.
Lowline, Highline, Mosquito.
First mountain bike ride since the crash 4 weeks ago. Felt like a beginner again in terms of technical skills. Bummer, but it will come back.
Again had my mild "warm up" headache that went away. Going to get that checked out, in case it matters.
ConditIons were quite dry.
Time and distance are estimated.
2 PM

Biking (Mountain ) 1:00:00 [1] 10.0 km (6:00 / km)

Canmore Nordic Centre with Carbon and her dad, his first time mountain biking. Tried some of Get In trail, then toured a bunch of double track up to the meadow for photos and out toward Rundle Riverside and back. Out on Meadow, back on Banff trail.
Time and distance are estimated.

Too smoky to go out and play. We were going to mountain bike tonight but we don't want to subject our lungs to it.

Total Body Blitz class at the gym at work

Head felt fine with everything, and the intensity.

Then a 5-minute guided stretch after.

"Burpies don't like you either"

Re: concussion, feeling very normal and good today. Maybe the run was good for me?, getting the body back into activity. The ribs are also feeling less discomfort (but still a little). Maybe the run helped mobilize some things that needed to be moved. Motion is lotion. Still a bit of discomfort in the right hand, but improving.
And yesterday at the football game was sure a big exposure to lots of loud noise (including CF-18s doing very low fly-bys), crowds, sun, dehydration, etc, with no issues.

Running (Road) 1:20:00 [3] 13.0 km (6:09 / km)
shoes: Hoka Stinson Evo

No specific pace or plan, just running. Headed east along the north side of the river toward the zoo, then across Memorial Drive into Bridgeland. Took lots of options to go up and down hills. Felt good but the heat started tiring me, 80 minutes felt like enough at this intensity.
Could feel my head just a little early on but it went away and all was good. No visual effects this time.
