running 1:00:00 intensity: (50:00 @2) + (10:00 @4)

On the trails at Clinton. It was muggy out, not hot but warmish.

I did 3x HU/ML/HE.

I wasn't really working well - physically or mentally - today. I think some of that is just thinking about things. Jeanine is my SIL. Jeanine's father died yesterday. He'd had ALS. I'd met him a few times and didn't know him well.

And another person I've met just a few times is in the ICU. Tilford crashed his bike and has a head injury. Sounds very scary.



I watched some of the streaming coverage of the Swiss world cup race this morning. At one point, a runner in a US team jersey passed by the camera. I had no idea anyone from the US was running.

I don't follow the US team closely but I was still surprised that someone from the US was at the World Cup and I hadn't known.

cycling 45:00 [1]

Work commute. Lots of crazy traffic on the trip home. Some of that seems to be related to the Brad Paisley concert. I have no idea who that is, but I'm thinking country music (based on seeing lots of students walking towards the concerrt and wearing cowboy boots). Yep, just did a Google search and found him.

cycling 45:00 [3]

Work commute. This morning was the first day with temps in the 30s for the season. It felt great.

running 30:00 [2]

Jogging around on West Campus. My right knee felt strange for about 2-3 minutes in the middle of the run. That was strange.

Work commute. Would have gone for a jog, but headed over to Mom and Ron's for gumbo.

cycling 45:00 [1]

Work commute with a trip to the dentist on the way to the office. It is always fun to see Charlie.

When I got home, I mowed. I'm hoping it'll be the last mow of the year, but I won't be surprised if I need to do it once more.

Row, row.

running 1:30:00 [2]

Mindless and easy jogging on the Clinton trails. I listened to a couple of Swedish podcasts to help pass the time. I felt ok, but legs are a little tired from yesterday. With about 15 minutes left I did a short uphill and my legs were slow.

It won't be long before getting off trail and into the forest will be reasonable.
