Note

I've been debating taking a week off to heal some little things before vacation versus during vacation. Today seems like a good day to relax inside, so maybe I'll start with that.

Mountain bike warm up/down (FatBoy ) 1:02:00 [2] 18.8 km (3:18 / km) +110m 3:12 / km
ahr:122 max:147

Commute check - 8:30 Green Lane traffic

Much lighter than 7:30am. I guess everyone streaming to the 400 and 404 was gone.

There was a good bit of fog along the river. Mid 20s and very wet yesterday to single digits this morning will do that. 9C for the ride, but bright sun.
9 AM

Note

I neglected to note after the MTB-O this weekend that I concluded that QR codes wouldn't be particularly good for that type of event. When I looked into them a few years ago it seemed natural to have a bunch permanently mounted that you could compose a course from. While that could still be fun, having to scan the code with your phone at each check point isn't something I would want to do while riding a bike.

Mountain bike warm up/down (Stumpjumper) 1:05:00 [2] 18.7 km (3:29 / km) +94m 3:23 / km
ahr:122 shoes: Specialized Comp mountain

Commute test.

J asked me to check Green Lane traffic for an 8 am and 9 am start before she committed to riding to them on a weekday. I targeted hitting Green Lane at 7:30 and got there just as the 7:30 train arrived. This collected quite a lineup a good 150m long, but once that cleared the traffic thinned out some - but never enough to make a U turn without going to the lights into the theatre. Lots of dump trucks.

I thought of riding in the woods for a while and coming back to check the 8:30 traffic, but Mrs. has been planning to ride the changing leaves today for about three weeks. We'll head to Tottenham for about 11am, then pop into Albion for her to try the short course from the weekend. Beyond that will depend on how the weather looks. She wants to ride for a couple of hours.
11 AM

Mountain bike (Stumpjumper) 2:12:00 [3] 29.7 km (4:27 / km) +226m 4:17 / km
ahr:129 max:172 shoes: Specialized Comp mountain

Colour chase with Mrs.

Took the Caledon Trail into the wind to Albion Hills entering at Patterson. We went in via the single track which I thought would hook up with the red trail pretty quickly. Not quickly enough for me to get banished from *most* Albion single track.

We then followed the red trail to the chalet. It was a bit hillier than Mrs. was keen on for a bit but smoothed out nicely. The sewage was being swapped out so the chalet bathrooms were closed - a brief disappointment before I found an alternative at a nearby campsite.

We then start the short course from the weekend. I paused my timer to go over navigation with Mrs. who doesn't like maps and really wanted a compass. She quite liked the ride on this course, but opted to take the road back to the Caledon Trail. This did mean a long climb up Hwy 50.

It felt like a storm might come in so she punched out a brisk pace with the tailwind back to the car.

Driving home, my right Achilles was quite uncomfortable. I might have to rest it a bit.

dips and pull ups were quite strong this morning - even the overhanded pull ups weren't bad
