Saturday Feb 16 #

MTB 1:33:00 [4] 13.6 mi (8.8 mph) +1443ft
ahr:119 max:157 weight:150lbs shoes: SW MTB 2012

Grand Ridge-Preston: Gritty and gross roads, snowy and slushy trails, but it was great to be outdoors. First ride in two weeks, and it was a good bike handling practice day. The skills were a bit rusty, especially in the snow. I'm the only rider on Grand Ridge all week, at least according to Strava.

Thursday Feb 14 #

Hiking 1:15:00 [2] 4.0 mi (3.2 mph) +414ft
weight:149.8lbs (rest day) shoes: Altra Olympus

Trail (and sidewalk) recon: Even the raccoons are walking in the middle of the street. The Park Pointe and High School trails are tough to walk, but they are in much better shape than the sidewalks. It's going to be awhile before Grand Ridge-Duthie-Soaring Eagle are rideable, and eons before Olallie-Raging River-Tiger are melted out.

Wednesday Feb 13 #

Trainer 1:05:00 [4] 23.4 mi (21.6 mph)
ahr:128 max:151 weight:150.6lbs shoes: SW Road 2008

Numbers lie, lie, lie. The biggest liar is ride time, so I never look at it. A given heart rate on the trainer feels equivalent to an outdoor HR miles higher. A five minute indoor "climb" seems like an hour long climb outdoors, except that it isn't any fun.

Tuesday Feb 12 #

Walking 25:00 [2] 1.2 mi (2.9 mph) +300ft
weight:151lbs (rest day) shoes: Altra Olympus

Walk home from DHZ in unbelievable snow, slush, and water.

Monday Feb 11 #

Trainer 1:01:00 [4] 21.9 mi (21.5 mph)
ahr:124 max:146 shoes: SW Road 2008

Reaching into my bag of tricks. After shoveling snow for the 2nd day in a row, I was in no mood for the trainer, but I turned that attitude into a decent session. With no goal other than staying on the contraption for an hour, I devised a plan by gut feel during my warmup to get me there. I didn't look at the ride time until the end and only focused on the segments I cooked up, and it worked. PS It sucked watching new snow cover up my shoveling again!

Sunday Feb 10 #

Walking 52:00 [2] 2.9 mi (3.3 mph) +213ft
(rest day) shoes: Altra Olympus

Snow is only pretty in the mountains or when it occurs very rarely. I drove Tracy to Golds and walked home, then shoveled our 20+% grade driveway so that she could put the car back in the garage. It's been at least 25 years since I shoveled snow. As if I needed another reminder (besides not being able to ride my bike) that snow sucks. Living in Denver for 15 years taught me that lesson well.
