From Chard Pond up Gunn Cross and Gunn Mountain roads, and back, jeep roads with good footing. Good effort, walked the one steeper part as expected.

Quads will probably be sore from coming back down. Might need to do something like this a little more often. Or just have sore quads for a couple of days.

Whatever. It was a good run and a pleasure to do it at what seemed like a good speed.

ahr:125 max:148 weight:136lbs

Short ride north along the river, just to get out. About 45, cloudy, NW wind. Felt a little chilly, probably more psychologically than physically.

Plus slowly but steadily getting stuff done around the house.

Along the power canal in Turners Falls, flat as can be. Low 50s, calm, light rain. First time running in a new pair of Nike Pegasus I got a few days ago, replacing a pair I must have had for 5 years or so. Felt OK. And the legs in general were OK.

Interesting how running seems to push my heart rate high pretty quickly, though the perceived effort seems much less than a similar heart rate on the bike. Don't know why or what it means. The pace didn't feel hard, even though at the end of two miles I was certainly happy to stop.

And hit my running goal for another week. :-)

My new forerunner (a 245) seems just fine. Figured out how to disable the heart rate monitor via your wrist, since I see so many examples of heart graphs bouncing all around with no change in speed or elevation that would account for it. Also declined to pair it with my phone, no need for that. Much better to have to plug it in to upload the data, as that way it stays charged. And the GPS tracking is more accurate than my old 220, picks up the Russian satellites too.

Short ride to Montague and back. Moderate effort. Warm and a bit muggy, but got done before the rain.

With Walter and Bill, starting at Walter's place in Conway, to the top of Massaemett Mountain in Shelburne and back. Lots of hills, mostly paved, a little dirt, plus the climb from Davenport's up to the tower in full mountain bike mode.

A fine ride, another gorgeous day. Bill is the strongest, but he is a bit out of shape. Walter is the weakest, but he has an e-bike that he uses with the proper amount of discretion and respect for the egos of his companions. What's not to like?

Pretty tired now. The legs know they've done some work. Plus just enough daylight left when I got home to take care of the rest of the leaves, rain coming tomorrow. Now off to the Thai place to pick up some curries, and then I would imagine early to bed. :-)

And my Garmin, RIP, ran out of battery just as I reached the top of Walter's driveway. Its replacement arrived in the mail today. This one has served me well for long time.
