Same route as yesterday. Working pretty hard this time, and there is satisfaction in that, but yesterday was certainly more fun.

At some point in the last 24 hours a tree came down across the "road" up the Gutter, fortunately just above the steep section, so getting going again after I climbed over it was no problem.

With Walter on a beautiful morning. To Leverett and Montague Center via Rattlesnake Gutter. Couldn't have been nicer.

biking - dark blue bike 1:21:03 intensity: (1:06 @1) + (58:29 @2) + (21:11 @3) + (17 @4) 21.14 mi (3:50 / mi) +514ft 3:45 / mi
ahr:124 max:151 weight:137.5lbs

Warm and humid, though not bad except for getting sweat in my eyes. Steady breeze out of the south. No plan, took it easy when I felt like it, and put out some effort when I felt like it. Not a bad way to ride.

6 PM

Note

10:04 (5;06). Not sure if this is helping or not.

biking - dark blue bike 1:02:10 intensity: (1:57 @1) + (54:37 @2) + (5:36 @3) 15.11 mi (4:07 / mi) +517ft 3:59 / mi
ahr:119 max:138 weight:137.5lbs

Hot and humid. Busy in the morning so didn't get out until early afternoon. No desire to work hard, nor any need to, so I didn't. :-)

And then took a nap. Been getting up way earlier than needed the last couple of mornings and it was catching up.

5 PM

Note

Walks continue, plus shoulder exercises every day and pelvic area stuff every other day. 5:30, 5:37 (right after dinner), 10:53 (5:23) to the fork just past the hairpin.

Meandering around on the flats until I figured I'd been out long enough. Rather pleasant, actually. And no falls.

Thought it was time for a trip up South Sugarloaf to see how things stood. The result of which being that I'm not sure. Time was 9:30. Certainly better than in the spring (but I hadn't been riding much), but roughly 30 seconds slower than last year. Maybe that's the annual rate of decay now?

On the other hand, when I was riding a few miles to warm up, it seemed like the bike wasn't moving too well. No fault of the bike, just obviously the legs weren't real spry.

Or maybe I'm just imagining....

One thing I'm sure of is that my stupidity, which I do my best to keep under wraps, still manages to assert itself from time to time. The latest was deciding, with no apparent thought, to do a u-turn at the top of the climb and head right back down (as opposed to coasting 100 yards or so to the parking area). So I was at max effort, also stopping the watch, and at the same time initiating a sharp turn on a narrow road. Dumb, dumb, dumb, even if done properly. The result was some flesh left on the pavement, from just below the right elbow. The only good news being that my right shoulder, which I've been working on, seems not to have been bothered. Hope I'm smart enough not to try that again.
