Birthday Ice Ride

-3C to start, but tradition wins out and I always do a ride on Erin’s birthday. The melt and refreeze made for some very large slick sections on the path. I mostly went slow enough to keep the bike upright. Even with the 4.8 rubber, in one spot just my light pedal stroke tried to wash me out. This is exactly why I ride it with flat pedals.

It warmed a bit by the time I got back home, but not enough to melt anything new.

Beautiful birthday ride though.

Power failed last night so I got up early, tricked by a rare brightening in the window due to a cloudless pre dawn.

Day 2 soloflex and free weights

A few extra sets

Cardio 30:00 [3]

Ice breaker part 2

Today cleared one side of the driveway so I could get out for Habitat tomorrow. It was easier than yesterday because I was mostly clearing an area that hadn’t had any travel. The ice, however was thicker from yesterday’s melt and refreeze.

I stopped shortly after noticing that I only had compression on one leg.

Ice breaker.

I probably could have waited for everything to melt, but needed some air so tackled our ice. On average we had a base of 4cm of ice topped with pellets 4-10cm deep. It couldn’t be pushed. I had to use a garden spade to break it up.

It quickly became apparent that clearing the driveway was a losing proposition so I cleared the front walk and then tried to clear enough road so that the water collecting at the end of the driveway could make it to the sewer. This meant clearing about the width of the sidewalk near the curb about 40m. Seems easy enough but everything was the weight of water 10cm deep.

I was soaked from the rain outside and the effort inside. It was a satisfying outing though.
