Spin class 2:00:00 [3]

2 hour fundraiser spin in class. Featuring video footage from a fat bike race in the Alps, some downhill racing, Tour de France and Coast 2 Coast (yes the MI event).

Jogging (rail trail) 3:00:00 [3] 21.6 km (8:20 / km)
shoes: New blue

Paul dropped me off by the marina in Leamington as he headed off to do a couple errands in that area. I jogged the old railway trail up to the former Heinz plant, making a brief detour into the tiny wooded area along the way (and found out there is actually a Strava segment in that woods....and not surprisingly, I'm the slowest lol. But maybe I'll go back sometime and let 'r rip in there and redeem myself). Then back south to the Sherk Rec centre, then north again on the old rail trail behind it. That was when the sun started to come out!!!!!!!! What the glorious heck?????
Within 10 minutes it was very grey again as I shuffled along the bike path we often ride that runs along the 3rd concession near Leamington. I added an extra couple klicks to the route by doing some out and backs on dead end sections and a couple repeats on the "hill" that goes up and over the former garbage dump (yes, garbage dump hills are the only ones we have). The trail was generally sloppy so I stayed to the side or on the odd bit of frozen snow.
Once I got to Ruthven, the trail was much firmer (it had been upgraded a couple years ago). Along that stretch, it started to snow, and by the time I got into town, I was leaving footprints. No, not enough to ski on.
I listened to 2 podcasts about the State of Gravel (bike racing) and an interview with Peter Stetina. When Peter won the Belgian Waffle Ride last spring, he weighed about as much as I do when I have my winter layers on for biking. No wonder his forte is hill climbing. And my forte is enjoying all that life has to offer (food, drink, slow rides and jogs).

Spin class 35:00 [4]

I had to work at a trade show today so missed boot camp.
After the trade show, I headed to the London area to see my parents, but went to the gym there first. I was too late for spin class, but they have a couple fancy "Tour de France" bikes that put you through a "hilly" workout. A huge step up from the bikes at our gym (same chain). I sent a note to our local gym suggesting they step up and add a couple to the fleet!

Upper body.

Spin class 50:00 [3]

Very good mix of sustained intervals and shorter ones.

Yoga (Yin yoga) 1:00:00 [1]

Lots for hips and some for hamstrings. Well appreciated.

Adventure Bike (Pavement) 1:45:00 [3] 20.0 mi (11.4 mph)

Once I got out the door on this grey rainy/snow showery day, it wasn't too bad. Just above freezing so I didn't need to worry about unseen ice on the bike path along Seacliff heading to Leamington. The ice along the dock/beach in Leamington was pretty neat (waves of ice chunks tinkling against each other). And it was a slog heading home into the wind....a few sub 10 mph moments in the windtunnel bits.
