I mowed the lawn. It was >= as much fun as mowing the lawn.


Blackboard discovery...I can record announcements as audio and video from my lap top. I might have to try that next week.


Swedish newspaper article about Peo Bengtsson.

MTB cycling 1:40:00 [1]

I should have gone for a run in the morning. But, I lounged around the house, drank coffee, read the paper, worked on a map project, and worked on the KU class. Then it got hot. I decided a MTB ride would be the best way to get outside without suffering too much.

I biked to the river trail and did some single track. I haven't done that in a while. I felt a bit clumsy. They've made a few changes to the trail. I think that's to address problems with erosion along the river bank from the high water this year.

Fun, but hot.

MTB cycling 1:40:00 [1]

Bike paths and roads - I visited Clinton State Park.

As I was heading west on the bike path past the Arboretum, I spotted an ambulance driving east on the bike path. The ambulance stopped and I could see that someone was on or next to the trail, sitting up. I reached the spot about a minute later. A cyclist was sitting in the grass next to the trail. A bike was next to him. He looked ok or not seriously hurt. But, he must have been hurt enough to call for an ambulance.

He was at a spot on the trail that was very slick. Rain washes very fine mud onto the trail. Where it is wet, it becomes slick. When I bike through those areas, I always roll slowly and often unclip my pedals. I think the problem could be fixed if the path had been designed with a bit more care.


7 AM

running 40:00 [2]

I shuffled around on West Campus. My legs felt dead for the first 10-15 minutes. And I ran slowly the entire time.

Temps were ok. Air was humid. Grass was very wet.
