cycling (mtbike) 2:00:00 [3]

Such a beauty day again!! Harps must be soooo happy.
Took an old O map up to Albion to try out my map board, my once-a-year orienteering skills and my sore ankle. The map board and ankle were pretty good and in my mind I found all the controls from 2 years ago:)
It was sure nice to be out today. So colourful and so pleasant a temperature. Lots of people were in Albion Hills - many hiking on the single track with toddlers and dogs etc. and a large group of somewhat elderly Asain hikers in full regalia, with poles, were bushwhacking. Not sure why, or where they were headed. Maybe they were in a hurry and were taking a shortcut - but it wasn't toward the parking lot. Or maybe they were just enjoying the beautiful trees like I was. My ankle is very sore now but I'll try the Bike O tomorrow.

cycling (road) 50:00 [3] 18.0 km (2:47 / km)

Yet another awesome autumn day today. Gorgeous lunch hour ride on Caledon country roads - enjoying that hard-to-describe pinky-reddish-orange colour unique to sugar maples in their fiery fall splendour, against the clear true blue of a crisp October sky.. As Hermes might say "magical". So nice to get outside:)

cycling (road) 30:00 [3] 12.0 km (2:30 / km)

Another beautiful fall day, but only a short ride. The swelling in the ankle has gone down, but it's very colourful and sore still. Goose and I took Tman to the Wiggles Concert in Brampton tonight. He was stoked!! So was Goose:)

circuit (classes) 45:00 [3]

circuit x 3 classes, st. bike instead of running since the ankle is still pretty swollen.
12 PM

cycling (road) 30:00 [3] 12.0 km (2:30 / km)

Only a small window at lunch but even only 1/2 hour outside on another fine fall day with the nearby hills ablaze with fall colours is better than 1/2 hour spent sitting at a computer or desk.

cycling (rail trail) 1:00:00 [3] 21.0 km (2:51 / km)

It was such a fab fall day I decided I had to try biking so I could get out. Once I got on the bike my ankle didn't hurt at all - provided I didn't put much pressure on that foot, so I rode the rail trail from Palgrave to Cal. East and back. Clear cobalt sky, full fall colours, no wind, cool temp. - just an all around awesome autumn day in Ontario :). We are so lucky to live here, especially at this time of year. Plus: No roofs blowing off, no storm surges flooding our homes, no evacuations., I'm pretty thankful today. I can't imagine being on the eastern seaboard or Caribbean right now :(
2 PM

canoeing (Island Lake) 1:20:00 [3]

Goose and I paddled our prince Tman around what is left of Island Lake - man is it low!! Hardly a breath of wind today - the glassiest the water has been all season, and the colours were gorgeous around the lake. Lots of water fowl still, and a lot of herons happily fishing in the shallow shoreline. So great to be outside today.

core strength.flexibiity 50:00 [3]

With an aircast on, I used crutches to get down to the exercise room at my parents' apt. building becasue I need to get some exercise. Did a lot of upper body, planks, push ups, abs etc. in sets that made me breathe hard. Not the same as getting out for a run but better than nothing.
