Saturday Aug 10 #

7 AM

Running 4:07:04 [3] 29.52 km (8:22 / km) +1046m 7:07 / km
shoes: Topo Terraventure 2.0

Pretty River- Quick first loop with Tarno, then another with Bash, hiking up all the hills we could find.

Swam the boys in very rough Princeton Shores after, then off to Sidelaunch Days for dockside drinks and an amazing electric violin performance! We had to tear ourselves away to go to dinner.

Friday Aug 9 #

Swimming 15:00 [3]

In the ABC pool. First time ever I actually felt like I got the breathing right-ish and was able to swim freestyle slow and smooth without being out of breath after. It usually feels like an unsustainable sprint.
12 PM

Running 1:31:13 [3] 9.76 km (9:21 / km) +500m 7:26 / km

We’d planned a long run, but on our pre-breakfast walk Bazingadog dragged me to some bushes where he scarfed down something that looked like hot dog slices. He then ate grass and puked it all up. Bash wondered if it might be poisoned, as there were reports of coyotes and nuisance dogs. After a morning of calling my sister the vet, as well as a pet poison control number, I went back to collect some of the hotdog slices to send off. I happened to pass a car with a “Missing Dog” sign and a number nearby. I called them and it turns out the lady was trying to bait her dog back, after being gone for months. So, not poison.

We ended up running the trails at Blue.

Thursday Aug 8 #

Cycling 1:20:00 [2]

Easy pre-dinner jaunt with our neighbours down the rail trail to Georgian and back.

Wednesday Aug 7 #

Cycling 30:00 [2]

Short jaunt around the local forest, with stops for raspberries.
The white farm dog was out on the trails with the smaller black one. He boldy barked at me, since I didn’t have the mighty Bazingadog to put him in his place.

Tuesday Aug 6 #

Paddlng 5:51:00 [2] 20.0 km (3.4 kph)

Burnt Island Lake to Canoe Lake takeout. Rainy day, but not rough.
We tried fruitlessly to find the Minnesing Camp ruin too.
We paddled past Arowhon where we stayed for our wedding, and even scored lunch on Gibraltar rock where we got married. The rock is still amazing. Sadly, the site was full of trash and forgotten clothing. Must go back some time and clean it up.
Out to the take-out, car shuttle, and a stop at AO and Kawartha Dairy before heading home after an idyllic trip.

Monday Aug 5 #

Paddlng 50:00 [2] 3.0 km (3.6 kph)

Short day trip with Aubrey, but things were getting rough so we limited it.

Swimming 20:00 [3]

Tried to actually swim freestyle a bit with some solid tips from aquaman Mick. It’s my breathing that is terrible, along with lousy head position, but it was rough out so I got some good snootfulls of water trying to do it right.

Sunday Aug 4 #

Paddlng 6:38:00 [3] 19.6 km (3.0 kph)

Paddled out to the Otterslide river, aka the Frog Kingdom, which kept the kids well amused. We had to get out and haul some shallow bits, and had a nice lunch beside a rapid. More portages today but they were all under 1km, some quite short. Another excellent paddling day.

Once on Burnt Island Lake we spend a while shopping for a campsite, and came across one with a great swimming rock and the Burnt Island Bistro- a wooden kitchen, with a granite “countertop” for stoves. Glamping!

More swims and a nice clear sky at night. Perfect!
