Paddling (Canoe) 25:00 [2]

'Bent and I paddled to my brother's cottage to pick up Mom and bring her back here. Then we drove around Lake Muskoka and admired autumn leaves.
3 PM

Running (Fail) 9:38 [2] 1.51 km (6:23 / km) +6m 6:15 / km
slept:7.5 shoes: Salomon Speedcross 3 - Coral

Time was tight and we shouldn't have tried to sneak in a run with so many family activities today. It was only going to be half an hour, and as we parked at the trailhead, three men and a dog emerged from the woods wearing hunter orange and carrying guns (except for the dog). AdventureDog looks like an animal from a distance - and even close up - so I didn't feel comfortable taking him in there for a run since his orange jacket was at home. I ran most of the way back to our cabin while 'Bent drove A-Dog back. Oh well.

Running (Trail) 1:24:50 [3] 10.15 km (8:22 / km) +172m 7:42 / km
slept:7.5 shoes: Salomon Speedcross 3 - Coral

'Bent, AdventureDog and I ran a spectacular autumn forest loop in Hardy Lake Provincial Park near Gravenhurst.

It was very quiet for the first hour, then we dodged tourists - mostly dog-fearing ones - for the last 2K.


AdventureDog also logged some swimming.

Happy Thanksgiving to all from the Tree Huggers!

6 PM

Paddling (Canoe) 25:00 [2]

'Bent and I paddled from our cabin to my brother's cottage for dinner, then we paddled back by moonlight later on.

Mountain Biking (Single Track) 2:45:00 [2] 29.6 km (10.8 kph) +520m

Rode around (and around) Albion Hills to do the final check of the Star Tracks MTBO Open and Novice courses. Lots of stopping - time deducted. I found a few small 2016 trail updates and map niggles to fix. The trails are in excellent shape and the autumn leaves are off to a great start. Beautiful day!

Used bike computer distance and moving time. Elapsed time was closer to 4 hours. I didn't bother uploading a second, shorter GPS track - just added the distance/time to this one.

Best headline of the day:

"British scientists win Nobel prize in physics for work so baffling it had to be described using bagels"

There was also a cinnamon bun involved. And a pretzel.

8 AM

slept:6.0 (rest day)

When the alarm went off, my brain and body thought it was the middle of the night. Rest day today for sure - maybe some yoga.

7 PM

Strength & Mobility (Boot Camp) 1:00:00 intensity: (10:00 @2) + (20:00 @3) + (10:00 @4) + (20:00 @5)

First boot camp since last spring. Ohhh, that was hard after yesterday! I'm sure it was good for me though. My knee only hurt during 1-legged side plank (upper leg lifted up) so I cut that one short.
9 PM


Earlybird entry fees are available until 11:59 p.m. for the Star Tracks Mountain Bike Adventure on Sunday, October 16.

Wokitoki is returning to defend his overall title, and our fastest woman, Coach LD, is going to try to repeat as well. It won't be easy; a lot of good riders have signed up to give them a run for their money.

As expected, the Family category has become a battle of Wilderness Traverse racers' kids. So far the children of team members on Pullin' Foot and the Long Sault Longshots will be competing with their parents, and they'll be taking on two teams of Gallaghers from Storm Beowulf.

Velofix Halton will be there to do basic tune-ups before the race and to address mechanicals. No charge for labour, just for any parts.

Hope to see you there!
