Spring seems to be here, at least for a little while. Mid-60s, W 5-10. First time out in just shorts for several months. Lots of people out riding and running, burgers were on the grill in a couple of spots, a couple of cars went by with their tops down.

Went by the Franklin County Fairgrounds and its 1/2-mile dirt track. Brought back memories of running in a 24-hour relay there. I think I had the 4-6 am shift. Will have to see if I can look it up.

ahr:130 max:158 weight:143lbs shoes: red bike tires #2

Two new tires, one new tube. Had 3,776 on the old set in not quite 11 months, so I figure I got my money's worth.

Upper 40s, WNW 15 mph. Another day with a lot more wind than I care for, but managed to get out for at least a short ride, up the river and back (ie. mostly flat).

Looks like in a couple of days I'll be complaining about it being too hot. :-)

Windy for this guy too --

Leverett loop clockwise, except I didn't finish, got a flat rear tire right at the town line on Bull Hill Road. Must be something in the rear tire causing a problem, thought I checked it pretty good when it got a flat a little bit ago, but I guess not. Time for new tires.

And as far as the post-flat experience, humanity got an 80% approval rating:

-- First house, when I asked to borrow the phone to call my wife, the old guy just said No.
-- Second house, the woman said sure, come right in. Plus she was baking cookies, offered me one. Husband, lying on the couch watching the Masters, was friendly too.
-- Back outside waiting for Gail, a guy in a pick-up stopped, asked if I needed a ride someplace.
-- And then a guy riding a fat bike came by, offered to help fix the flat, but then I said my new tube hadn't made it into my saddle bag...

4 out of 5 is pretty good.

About 50, WSW 10 mph.

biking - red bike 1:22:33 intensity: (51 @1) + (14:48 @2) + (57:30 @3) + (9:14 @4) + (10 @5) 20.7 mi (3:59 / mi) +1068ft 3:48 / mi
ahr:138 max:161 weight:143lbs

Mid 50s, N 0-5 mph. First time in a long time I went up in the hills a little bit, up to Lake Wyola and back. I had the excuse all winter of not feeling like it was all that safe, but the ice is long gone. Started with this modest route. Going up sure seemed difficult, but then coming back was fun.

Back is doing better. :-)

biking - red bike 1:24:04 intensity: (1:03 @1) + (29:17 @2) + (49:13 @3) + (4:31 @4) 20.74 mi (4:03 / mi) +548ft 3:57 / mi
ahr:133 max:159 weight:143lbs

Low 60s, S 0-5 mph. Sure a lot nicer than it's been. Pleasant ride except for the section of dirt road I ventured on that got muddy enough I was barely able to keep going. There was a sign saying it was not maintained in winter....

The upside of venturing on that rarely travelled bit of road, at least this time of year, was scaring up a flock of horned larks, maybe 75-100 of them.
