Saturday Mar 30 #


Rest day. A rainy one. We did walk - with an umbrella.

Friday Mar 29 #

8 AM

road run 30:00 [3]

A mild springlike morning. The ground was a bit squishy so the trail was muck. Ran through the park and then on the roads.

core strength.flexibiity 30:00 [3]

Balances, lunges, planks, stretching
11 AM

cycling (road) 2:05:00 [3] 42.0 km (2:59 / km)

Bright sunny day but a bit of a cool north wind. Goose and I headed out toward Schomberg through the Humberview subdivision. Stopped to check out a girls sprawled awkwardly on the sidewalk near the Bolton Camp trail head. Her friend was trying to get her to respond. The unconscious girl stayed that way for about 5 minutes during which time we questioned her friend about possible drug use - especially since it was right where kids go down the trail to smoke pot. The friend told us no, no drugs the girl had just said she couldn't walk and slumped to the ground then passed out. Right.
We called 911, and got put on hold for 3 minutes?!!? What?!?!? Eventually the girl responded to our voices, and was able to nod then opened her eyes but couldn't speak. It was a bit scary. The firemen arrived about 20 minutes later and when they asked the girl on the ground if she had taken any drugs, she said she had smoked something. Big surprise. So great that marijuana is now legal and more people are doing it on their lunch break.
We carried on to Schomnberg and had a nice latte and treat at the Grackle:)

The back and over to Pops' and Susie's.

Such a sunny afternoon we had to get outside. Goose and I paddled from Pops' and Susie's to the burnt-down bridge, then went for an exploratory hike on the far side of the river. Such a nice day!

trail Run (HVtrail) 30:00 [3] 4.0 mi (7:30 / mi)

skate ski (Quebec City) 1:00:00 [3] 12.0 mi (5:00 / mi)

Watched a very exciting and emotional final race for Alex Harvey in the pursuit this morning. He was amazing - so strategic and smart and skilled. I wasn't the only one who wept.
Then Goose and I skied on the Plains of Abraham, on the race course, past the canons and towers and bastions above the St. Lawrence. So cool.
