Soccer 1:30:00 [3]

Game vs. Penfield Rangers. Both defenses were tight and both goalies played solid, so we had 0-0 going into the 2nd half. We made the first mistake, with a cross into the middle and no defender covering. Penfield took a 1-0 lead into the last 5 minutes, but the D finally got tired. After many good looks, consistent pressure finally led to a loose ball scramble in front of the Penfield net and a Pittsford goal.

Final Pittsford USC 1, Penfield Rangers 1

Free and open to the public, and it's a good program to boot. See website below for addresses and directions.

Arrowhead - Park - RR Mills

Cycling 2:00:00 [2] 49.0 km (2:27 / km)
shoes: Jamis Quest

Training ride for the charity ride I'm doing next weekend. Emphasis was staying in a group and not going too fast. Started at Webster Park and then went E along the lake and back. No major hills, so pretty easy ride.

Cycling (Night) 2:00:00 [3] 47.0 km (2:33 / km)
shoes: Univega Gran Turismo (fixed)

Mi Square - Van Voorhis - Canfield, through Mendon Ponds (eerie this time of night with all the eyes glowing in the dark) then out Williams, L on Wardell, E on Lyons, Sheldon to Mendon Center, Bulls Sawmill, Chamberlain, Taylor, then E on Cheese Factory to Harloff, back on Taylor-Mi Square & home.

First true night road ride. Typically when I go out after dark, its either mtbing on trails or on the Canal Trail or LVT, so I don't have to worry about cars. Up to this point, I had resisted plunking down the $$$ for a real set of lights. Mostly b/c it the lights would be significantly more expensive than the bike I put it on (I only spent $75 on the Univega frame and the rest of the parts I just had lying around, after all).

Well, I bit the bullet and shelled out a handsome wad of greenbacks on a Dinotte 400L front and rear light set. Boy what a difference. This was really a novel experience. I ran the headlight at 50% power (200 lumens) since that was all I really needed and the 100% seemed like overkill. It also has a 10% setting. For the taillight, I ran on the hi-low strobe setting, putting out 240 ls on the top end of the strobe, I'm guessing 120 on the low end? Anyway, passing cars gave me a wide berth. I felt very visible. After almost 2 hours I still had ~25% charge left in the battery and didn't need to use the backup.

So, I now effectively have a larger number of hours in a day to squeeze a ride in. Sweet.

Spent the day with the kids helping Roz show her calf at the Alfred State showmanship day. Quite fun although the 4H kids with more experience had it much easier.

Roz was assigned a very easygoing and trainable calf. I am concerned that she will bring it home at the end of the term.
