cycling (road/rail trail) 2:10:00 [3] 48.0 km (2:43 / km)

Hazy warm day. Not bright and clear but soft and warm and breezy - like a gauzy summer dress luffing softly. Everything was soft. Soft light, soft wind, soft sweet scents, soft sounds. Goose and I rode up to the trail trail and west to Cal. East where I left him to head back to the garden and he rode on to Inglewood. The colours were gorgeous today too. The trees have turned quickly and brightly. The red maples are popping beautifully, the sumacs are bright pink and the fall asters are furry and full on purple. Beauty day!

cycling (road, Albion) 1:40:00 [3] 26.0 km (3:51 / km)

What a gorgeous day! Rode my mt. bike up to Albion to start marking the race course for the fall xc race next weekend. The colours have just started and it was beautiful to ride up Duffy's Lane where there are some spectacular sugar maples, as well as in Albion where many trees have turned. So pretty against a bright blue sky. After I put up some arrows I did a bit of single track since I was there anyway. I love mt. biking, but it hurts my hands/thumbs etc. I did enjoy myself though.

cycling (rail trail) 1:00:00 [3] 20.0 km (3:00 / km)

After a few house tours with our agent in Collingwood we happened to run into another friend out on her bike so we joined her for a loop of the trails in town, then explored the neighbourhood of a house we liked:).
It was not really sunny up there but it was warm, and so it had to be done - jump in the bay, and to my surprise it wasn't freezing! I had quite a pleasant swim, in my bike shorts. Had to dry off with a sweatshirt but it was lovely.

fitness class (seniors' class) 1:09:00 [3]

I had to get myself filmed leading a fitness class for my certification and a few very nice friends gave up an evening to act as my class. I think they got a bit of a workout - some more than others. There was quite a range, 58-83 years old, a personal trainer/rower, an ultra trail runner, 4 grandparents, a xc ski coach, so a wide range of fitness. But they were great and were the perfect class:)

cycling (road/rail trail) 2:55:00 [4] 67.0 km (2:37 / km)

A pretty summery day for the first day of fall - beautiful but with that high haze again. The ash from the western fires made the sky a bit weird again but breathable here. We are so lucky.
Rode up Centreville Creek intending to go across Patterson to Innis Lake but it was closed do I rode up to Finnerty. Stopped for a short visit at RR's house at the top of Innis Lake Road then rode down to the rail trail. Headed east through Palgrave to Tottenham and then back home. Nice ride:)

fitness class (seniors' fitness) 2:00:00 [3]

Trying to prepare a class to present and film as the final requirement for the seniors' fitness instructor certification. I spent way to long doing the choreography over and over! The cardio portion has to last at least 20 min. and I don't want to bore my friends who I have begged to act as my class. Then we have to do 20 min. of strength, plus balance and flexibility so it's a decent length for a class!

roller ski (Cedar Mills) 1:00:00 [3] 13.0 km (4:37 / km)

Another in this string of clear bright days. Warm today too, up to 20 for the last day of summer. As good a day as any to start roller skiing. Goose and I skied the Cedar Mills subdivision streets. Very quiet and rolling. I'll be sore for sure but it felt pretty good.

orienteering (HVtrail) 1:20:00 [3]

Crisp clear morning so I thought I'd go for a walk. Guess the cool air was invigorating because instead of just going for a walk around the block I got onto the trail, then off the trail. Bushwhacked to the ravine where some of last spring's controls were - that was my "orienteering" without a map - and they were all still there! Did a lot of up and down steep banks and it was beautiful:) Think I'll count that as my virtual Terry Fox Run.
3 PM

cycling (road/rail trail) 2:00:00 [3] 45.0 km (2:40 / km)

A lovely day, just warm enough to be in bike shorts if you kept moving, and wore a windbreaker. Rode over to and through Cal. East on the rail trail and then back east again on Old Church to the rail trail to Palgrave. Home down Mt. Hope with an apple -picking stop.
