Spin class 50:00 [3]

Increasing resistance

Adventure Bike (Pavé, gravel) 1:27:00 [3] 18.58 mi (12.8 mph)

My son and I drove to Viewpointe Winery to say hi to my stepdaughter and I sampled a couple wines. Then he drove back to our place and I took the scenic route back by bike.
I stopped to make a small adjustment to my saddle and my Park multitool exploded Allen keys all over the side of the road. Humph.
The Greenway was too icy where the trees shaded it so I soon bailed out to the road.
Oddly not very windy.
This all worked out well as he could take my vino purchases back to the house in the car so I didn't need to put the bottles in my bike jacket pockets.

Spin class 45:00 [3]


Gym time 25:00 [3]

Kettlebell stuff, then a few dozen floors on the stepper.

It was 10C/50F as I drove home from work today. Sublimation has been happening since last night so we've been fogged in all day, and then it rained. I am glad I skied last night as that might be the end of it for the season down here. Some people want to move to Arizona when they retire. I want to move to a place with more consistent snow cover.

XC Skiing 48:00 [3] 3.17 mi (4.0 mph)

Warm, foggy night ski around the soccer fields. The glassy ice crust softened today After 2 laps, some spots were down to the grass. At least my hands weren't cold.

Spin class 50:00 [3]

Into the wind.


I compared my wrist watch Garmin Forerunner 35 heart rate recording to my chest strap Lezyne system during spin class today. I have noticed that the watch will show the odd, and short term, (say, 1 or 2 times per spin class) drop on HR (ie from 120 to 90 and back to 120), presumably because the watch has slipped a bit on my wrist. But other than that, each time I checked the two systems, they were within 1 or 2 BPM.
Garmin said the wrist system was accurate, and compared to the Lezyne system, I will certainly agree.

Hockey 30:00 [3]

Hill Work (Snowshoeing) 30:00 [3] 1.77 km (16:57 / km)

Stomped up and down the steepest hills in the park. There is a crust on the snow so there was a constant cascade of icy bits sliding down the hills. About 4-6" deep with the snowshoes on.

Jogging (snowy paths) 15:00 [3] 1.8 km (8:20 / km)
shoes: Speed Cross

Right after snowshoeing, put the SpeedCross on for a ginger trot around the snowy/icy paths in the park.


Then I tried skiing on the Greenway (breaking trail), but the ice layer seemed to be trying to slice through my ski boots.

Hockey 30:00 [3]

Team Canada probably wasn't scouting at our game tonight, but we played our best.
