Saturday Jul 27 #

8 AM

Walking 1:26:11 [3] 9.28 km (9:17 / km)
shoes: Salomon Speedcross 4 (7W)

Nice morning, but getting hot, Baby! Walked to The Bench and back. A few RUUUUDE cyclists who had their Weekend Warrior jock straps on. On the other hand, lots of nice hellos and brief exchanges with many friendly walkers and runners.
Avge HR 105, high of 125. Saw lots of Monarchs everywhere and the usual song birds and crows doing their morning things.
Heel OK, but I’m wearing down the nubs on my Speedcrosses!
4 PM

XBX Fit 450 Program 45:00 [3]

Good session. 7lb, no Rita bends. 1.5 min Eagle position each side at the very end.
WIT playlist was p e r f e c t .

Walking 1:14:33 [3] 8.0 km (9:19 / km)

The usual turn-around loop plus an Ivanhoe top-up. Lots of bird and butterfly sightings on the way. Friendly pedestrians and cyclists - no dufus bikers today! Yay! HR 97. Fastest km was 8:56. Heel still limiting me...

Thursday Jul 25 #

3 PM

Yard work 40:00 [3]
shoes: Merrell Ventilator-types

Reel mowing workout. Felt great. Arms are getting stronger. HR 108. Did some XBX modified exercises and stretching afterwards, then walked Hazel. Met a new neighbour!

Wednesday Jul 24 #

Walking 1:03:28 [3] 6.5 km (9:46 / km)
shoes: Salomon Speedcross 4 (7W)

To Duckie Point and back. Avge HR 89; max HR 106.
Felt the heel in some spots but overall good. Wore a homemade PF Stassburg sock during half of my sleep last night, and will try to wear it all night tonight.
2 PM

Classical Stretch 55:00 [3]

Haven’t done this in a long time, and I should do it more often. Good all-round stretching and ‘Essentric’ work on all muscles :)

Tuesday Jul 23 #

9 AM

Cycling 2:35:46 [3] 47.0 km (3:19 / km)
shoes: Shimano WR61 clip-ins

Cool ‘bikesplore’ with Francis: bike to Parc Moussette, then ventured into Gat Park, up Lac des Fées-Cité des Jeunes, then headed east along the Gat bike path to Lac Leamy. Followed the river(s) to the Portage Bridge, then made a detour from the Ottawa R path to check out Art-Is-In Bakery on City Centre. Saw Tommy G and Erin there! What a coincidence!
Beautiful day to explore: warm, not humid, sunny :)
Avge HR 108; high 151.
2 PM

Walking 45:00 [1] 3.0 km (15:00 / km)
shoes: Saucony Peregrine

Walked to do some local shopping. Easy.

Monday Jul 22 #

8 AM

Walking 1:15:45 [3] 8.0 km (9:28 / km)
shoes: Merrell Ventilator-types

Heel was sore when I woke up, so did a bit of stretching and rolling before I headed out. Decided to wear a different pair of shoes to see how it would affect my left foot. Focussed on foot placement and push-off. Seemed to be OK. Avge HR 101. Cooler day, but still a bit humid. Saw some Monarch butterflies around the milkweeds, and a strange bird I’m going to try to i.d. Greeted many people along the way :)
5 PM

XBX Fit 450 Program 45:00 [3]

Avge HR 88; Max HR 140
Feel tired and floopy today. Did some work in the garden for a few hours today after my walk. Maybe this wasn’t a good day for a Walk-Weed-Workout triathlon. Bummed out about stuff too. Wah.

Sunday Jul 21 #

8 AM

Cycling 1:33:29 [4] 40.55 km (2:18 / km)
shoes: Shimano WR61 clip-ins

Whew! Two times the SJAMP (War Museum turn-around) then a top-up few km to Iris and back to the Carling ramp. Warm but not nearly as humid as yesterday, with a nice breeze. Doggon headwind when going westward. Cyclists were entertained by a euphonium quartet near the Kitchisippee Woods!
I started off feeling really tired and saddle sore but seemed to warm up by about 18 km. Took awhile for my legs to engage, so I focussed on circular-pedal-stroke drilltervals for the first 15 km or so. Max HR 168; Avge HR 147 bpm.
