Sunday Jul 28 #

11 AM

Paddling 6:00:00 [2] 35.0 km (10:17 / km)

The start of our Bowron Lakes canoe trip with Tom, Heather, Dave and Suzanne. It starts with a 2.5 km portage (using portage wheels) on trails that are rocky and rooty in spots. You are allowed to have up to 60 lbs of gear in the boat while portaging. Meanwhile we each had a decent-sized portage pack on our backs. A total of three portages today; the third one was especially tough with mud bogs that were knee deep and boardwalks that were easy to tip the canoe off the side of. To make it all worse, we were given a brand new canoe and asked to not scratch it up.
Carbon and I went AR style, using kayak paddles (SRS Shark) in a canoe. It felt good to be paddling again.
The day became extra long because we needed to find a site with three open tent pads. The ones we had our sights set on didn’t have enough space so we paddled until 8:40 pm and were getting concerned about daylight. Paddled all the way to site 21a on day 1 (about 2 days worth of paddling).
Amazing calm water with great reflections and clear views to the bottom. Loved it. The long epic day was fun, minus the stress of not knowing if we might not have anywhere to camp.

Running (Trail ) 45:00 [2] 7.0 km (6:26 / km) +180m 5:42 / km
weight:64.6kg shoes: Hoka Stinson 3

Montane-golf course shorter loop with Carbon.
Got buzzed by the Snowbirds in full formation with smoke trails while we were high along the Montane traverse. So cool. Felt like they were close enough and low enough to wave to them.
Felt a bit tired from the last couple of days, but our pace may have been a little quicker than I thought.

Biking (Spin class) 45:00 [3]

Pretty fatigued from the stairmill last night, so this probably wasn’t as effective as it could have been. Not a surprise. Still happy to stack it on because the next week or so won’t be too intense with our paddling/camping trip. Stack the workouts this week and have a light week next week.

Strength (core and upper) 40:00 [3]

myotatic crunch with 7.5 lbs
planks: front 2:00, 1:40. Sides 1:15-1:30
forgot to do my cat vomits
Standing Russian twist with 35 lb plate, 2 x 60
push ups
seated bench press
wide pull down
40s with 10 lbs
curl pulley
tricep pulley

Hiking (Stairmill ) 2:05:00 [2] +1700m
shoes: Hoka Stinson Evo

600 floors
80-85 spm
AHR 130-145 bpm
1900 calories (? Not sure if I totally believe that. 900+ calories per hour? Maybe from a super intense spin workout, but not sustainable at that intensity for two hours)
Originally intended to watch a couple of Netflix episodes but realized I forgot my iPad and had to tough it out. Wasn’t as mentally unbearable as I thought it might be.
