Saturday Jan 30 #

Jogging (Pavement) 38:00 [3] 2.9 mi (13:06 / mi)
shoes: White Hoka

Down to the lake......pretty neat ice formations along the shore. Then jogged back to the downtown area, and did my part to support the local coffee and chocolate culture. Tough job, but someone needs to pitch in.

Trekking (Trail) 1:00:00 [3] 2.5 mi (24:00 / mi)

Easy walk with Paul and other couple (double masked......good thing it isn't 28C!) around the paths at a nearby rural property that has very recently been opened up for pedestrian access only. A couple dug ponds, some 10-15 year old trees planted in rows, more mature trees around the perimeter...... It would be a great place to ski or snowshoe once we get some snow.

Thursday Jan 28 #

Gym time 20:00 [3]

Dumbells and resistance bands.

I have not been doing enough stretching, and I can feel it.

Tuesday Jan 26 #

Trekking (Pavement) 20:00 [3] 1.27 mi (15:45 / mi)
shoes: Altra Lone Peak 4

We missed the snow...just enough wet snow to make a glaze on the sidewalks. I was very disappointed when I got up this morning.

Trekking (Pavement) 1:01:30 [3] 4.09 mi (15:02 / mi)
shoes: Altra Lone Peak 4

Almost done the Spine Challenger distance event.....mathematically, I am at or near Hawes, the home of Wensleydale Cheese. Paul and I camped just outside of Hawes and walked into town for supper at a pub. I had run out of gas that day (a beer and chips (french fries) was not a proper lunch for a day that consisted of riding up, up and up some of the Yorkshire hills that had been featured in the early days of the Tour de France when it started in Yorkshire a few years ago), so I was grateful for the warm bowl of cream of mushroom soup to start the meal. Many of the locals had their dogs with them in the pub, and there was only one fight (between dogs). Some of the mainline grocery stores around here carry the Wensleydale cheese, so despite my fierce loyalty to the Little Blue Cow (Canadian) dairy products, I do indulge in some special cheese from this lovely bit of Yorkshire from time to time.

Meanwhile, back in Kingsville Ontario, the sidewalks were slippery so I walked on the streets quite often. Very little traffic even here in town, so dodging cars wasn't a concern. And here I was worried about slippery conditions while biking on the Greenway.

Monday Jan 25 #

Trekking (Pavement) 1:17:00 [3] 4.11 mi (18:44 / mi)

Everyone was out walking their dog. 3-5 cm snow is expected tonight. I finally installed the studded tires on my fat bike as there is a bit of ice on the Greenway, so I want to be ready for slippery conditions tomorrow night.

Gym time 25:00 [3]

Dumbells and resistance bands.

Sunday Jan 24 #

Trekking (Pavement) 52:00 [3] 3.14 mi (16:34 / mi)
shoes: Altra Lone Peak 4

Just a few snowflakes in the air. Down to the lake, across the ravine, and up to the Greenway. I was going to walk along the road to one of the beach roads, but it was snowing so hard, I thought that walking in the poor visibility was asking for trouble.

Jogging (Trail) 31:00 [3] 2.62 mi (11:50 / mi)
shoes: Altra Lone Peak 4

Jogged along the Greenway from Kratz to Ruthven. My legs were not impressed. Snowing very, very nicely!

Trekking (Pavement/trail) 1:07:00 [3] 4.11 mi (16:18 / mi)
shoes: Altra Lone Peak 4

Walked back from Ruthven......the snow slowed down and eventually stopped. But it was fun while it lasted.

Trekking (Woods) 1:00:00 [2] 1.77 mi (33:54 / mi)

Met up with Lynda for a hot chocolate walk around Cedar Creek Provincial Park. Less snow there than at Ruthven.
