1 PM

road running 11:33 intensity: (32 @1) + (43 @2) + (3:40 @3) + (6:14 @4) + (24 @5) 1.2 mi (9:38 / mi) +11ft 9:33 / mi
ahr:146 max:161 weight:136lbs

Stage 1 of the Post-Halloween Triathlon, my weekly run, even done on time this week. Sure isn't easy.

biking - dark blue bike 42:21 intensity: (9 @1) + (4:47 @2) + (33:58 @3) + (3:22 @4) + (5 @5) 11.12 mi (3:49 / mi) +96ft 3:47 / mi
ahr:140 max:161

A pretty quick change of clothes as the storm was getting closer. Stage 2, on my own on the bike, so time to up the effort. Flats south of town. The wind was from the south, and a good bit stronger than when I was doing stage 1, maybe 15-20, the leaves were on the move, so the first half was hard work. The second half was hard work too, because why not.

2 PM

Note

And then another quick change into my pulling outfit (old clothes and two pairs of gloves) for stage 3, pulling more bittersweet. Working hard on this one too, but I've been training. Rain was just starting as I was finishing. Perfect.

Still waiting for results, but likely a spot on the podium?

And then something to eat and a cup of coffee. And something I never look forward too, it'll now get dark about 5 pm. Whoopee.

biking - dark blue bike 1:18:33 intensity: (1:38 @1) + (1:16:55 @2) 17.22 mi (4:34 / mi) +272ft 4:30 / mi
ahr:112 max:126 weight:136lbs

With Gail, north. About 40, so more clothing. Not yet the booties, though should have, feet a little chilly chilly by the end. Not yet the big mittens. That will come.

First hard freeze last night. Mid-20s when I headed out for a long walk this morning, though it was warming up some by the end.

Friday Oct 30 #

Note

Snowed all morning. By the time it stopped in early afternoon we had perhaps an inch. Went out late afternoon, Mt. Toby -- training area many many times over the last 36 years, though not so much recently -- was looking very fine.



Here's another view of it:





Thursday Oct 29 #

10 AM

road running 11:26 intensity: (14 @1) + (1:50 @2) + (8:52 @3) + (30 @4) 1.2 mi (9:32 / mi) +5ft 9:30 / mi
ahr:140 max:152 weight:135lbs

Last week's run, a bit late, so I had to do 20% extra, like interest. Rain, mid-40s, but no wind and reasonably pleasant. And had the place to myself, another plus.

Tuesday Oct 27 #

Note

My annual "wellness check." It includes lots of numbers when you add in the data from the blood tests.

It seems there is really only one of those numbers that you can't do much about, and that one, sad to say, has declined again. 64.75 inches this time, down a full two inches from my peak. In addition to the psychological damage, it also affects the body mass index calculation, pushing me closer to the obese category. Maybe this visit ought to be called the "badness check."

2 PM

biking - dark blue bike 1:24:09 intensity: (16:53 @1) + (1:07:16 @2) 18.44 mi (4:34 / mi) +266ft 4:30 / mi
ahr:105 max:121 weight:135.5lbs

North up the river to Turners Falls and back. Another day where I was quite happy not to be trying to go faster.

Drizzle and mid-40s all day. Glad I don't have some sort of streak to maintain. Did get out for a little while to pull more bittersweet. Making progress (75% done?).
