Time to get the house working again. Our phone stopped getting a dial tone 2 weeks ago. Odd that we can still receive calls. Today the water heater quit. And the water softener needs a new batch of salt.

Clearing my head and collecting my car. Notable mostly because the flood plan my trail through the woods is on was still flooded to my ankles from the Thursday rain. I might have gone the long way in daylight but didn’t really see it until I was committed

Note

Great conditions for the bike ride this morning, but lacking the ambition to glue on the proper compression.
Maybe I’ll set up the trainer even though it is 2 months early for it.

Just the dial a weight parts.
I have to rush the car up to VW so they ‘might’ be able to fix it as an emergency before they close for the weekend. You’d think they would reserve some capacity for emergencies-
9 AM

Road cycle (Brompton) 31:51 [3] 8.91 km (3:34 / km) +62m 3:27 / km

I tossed the Brompton in the back of my car so I could get home a bit quicker than walking and arrive in time to book today’s hospital visit. The map might look like I failed navigation, but I went for the quietest roads that would get me back to the river, then overshot my turn to see if I could find Floght on her run.

ahr:113 max:137 shoes: D2 2D yellow mountain

A river cruise. The bents aren’t especially phone friendly, and I expected phone stop...so a regular bike away from traffic seemed like the right choice.

I made a last minute switch of clothes to yellow RTCC jersey and my FU (spelled out on the sock) Cancer. I did however, forget water, which turns out ensured I was back before Erin went to the hospital.

7 text stops and 2 phone calls.

Still a nice ride. The big GO train lot is back to just over 100 cars. Much more Han I’ve seen in the last 18 months.

I not took a couple of minutes to cast my vote today, so I had some spare time before my visit slot with Mrs. I used it to walk to the hospital. Nice river cruise.

Life in slow motion after the second Shingrix

Note
rhr:43

We didn't plan anything today so as not to jinx our 5th vaccine in the last 6 months: now also shingles safe.

So, while loitering around the house I finished up my drone video of the growth season on the Holland Marsh. I took video of two other sections, but their story is harder to tell because they have multiple crops with different growth rates.

This is north on Jane Street. It extends the May-June I did a while ago to test my video editing. I added some more original music. This time I stretched the video slightly so the piece would finish.

The stress in the connective tissue behind my right knee came back after bein in compression for 5 hours yesterday. I probably should have taken it off the right leg when I finished the ride. And maybe done air compression after the moderate length ride.

ahr:145 max:191 shoes: D2 2D yellow mountain

With my big rides over for the year, I thought I would get back to trying some different riding.

Today I went to Uxbridge to give their very long trail a try. It turns out, access is via a bit of single track. Not tragic. I put a bit of video of it of Facebook/Instagram.

3km riding behind some of the homes on the edge of town, then 12km through wetlands. It is a very quiet trail, with few road crossings. Far less traffic interaction than Caledon or Oro trails. At that point there was a branch - I took the right arm, continuing mostly east.

After 24km I got to km 0 of the next jurisdiction. The map showed 53km and then indicated it extended further to Peterborough. This section was even less used. Big concrete blocks were placed to discourage dirt bikes, but a couple were to tight to get the recumbent through. I turned around at about half my age. No sign of any services, so carry everything you need. I should have packed my spare bladder, but didn’t think it was warm enough to require it.

I took a fair bit of video on the return. That and a growing headwind made it slow getting back. I overshot my entry point to map the extreme west end. I headed into the single track early and ended up riding a bit of residential to get back to the truck. The trip, and more requires no road riding, so definitely ‘Bent friendly.

Between getting there, and the drone stops, the 3 hour bike ride took 5 hours.

I highly recommend this trail.

Oh...I should note the elevated heart rate in intervals 9-11 is false. Time for a new heart monitor.

ahr:152 max:173 shoes: D2 2D action blue road

It was windier than I like, but after a week off cardio (deliberately, not forced), I felt I should try to clear my intensity deficit. Out to the marsh, where I expected traffic to be light.

For the first lap, I tried to keep my heart rate mostly in the 150s. The wind made that pretty easy to do. For the second lap, I wanted to do some 30 second sprints. I try to do these at 400+ watts.

As I got to the southwest corner of the marsh, I noticed some threatening clouds. Even though we didn’t have afternoon rain scheduled, I opted to take the shorter loop the second time. This would mean squeezing the time between sprints, but I figured my legs could handle it.

With 3km to go, the rain started and the already strong wind got fierce. I blame not make my target on the last sprint on the road conditions.

Still nice to get back out.
