cycling (road) 3:05:00 [3] 73.0 km (2:32 / km)

Gorgeous bright sunny morning and a bit warmer than yesterday. A group road ride had been planned for those doing the RTCC preparation for next weekend's event. Steve C., Connie and Dave O, Carolyn and Gerhardt, Martha and I rode out 6th Line past Glen Huron to Creemore and then over to Dunedin. I was barely able to hang on to the group. Good thing Carolyn and Dave took pity on me and kept waiting. Some turned back home at Dunedin but Martha, Carolyn and I carried on, up, up, and up the looooong climb toward 124 (those 2 kicked my ass) and then across to Badjeros. Once we got there the ascending was done. I didn't feel bad, I guess I was still not recovered from last weekend or just didn't have the gears? Once we started headed north rolling along toward Rob Roy is was steady and smooth and lovely all the way down Pretty River Road. So fun. We headed into Nottawa where Martha treated us to a latte at the General Store which was a treat. Then we headed back into town. Great ride:)
11 AM

cycling (road/trail) 1:20:00 [3] 27.0 km (2:58 / km)

I felt so good, that after leaving the others I rode to Sunset and then along the harbour out to Cranberry, up Ash Creek trail, and around town to the market. When I got home I checked my distance and decided that since I was at 93km I really should go finish 100. I took a long route to the Spit and dove in for a most delicious swim. It was not ice, Cool but not painful. It felt soooo good!

cycling (Train trail) 1:00:00 [3] 24.0 km (2:30 / km)

Beautiful bright but very cool morning, 6c! But no wind.7 of the crazy ladies met at the bridge and we rode to Stayner where I had to beetle back to get to school to supply teach. I rode pretty hard but at least it was slightly downhill:)

Goose and I picked up Tman and we drove into TO for his his first in-person neurology app't since before Covid. Drive in wasn't too bad. The drive home was classic stressful downtown Toronto driving. I remembered why I hate driving down there. But the app't was good.
I went to the first beach volleyball practice when we got back down at Sunset. Nice kids. Fun:)

cycling (Train trail) 1:30:00 [3] 30.0 km (3:00 / km)

Connie O, Carolyn, Susie and I met early and rode to Stayner, around the pond and back. It was quite chilly but what a glorious spring morning with dappled sunlight and sweet birdsong and bunnies. No unicorns though.

cycling (town trails) 1:00:00 [3] 20.0 km (3:00 / km)

Susie was kind enough to do a flat, wimpy ride with me and my still slightly stiff legs.

9 AM

strength (basement) 1:00:00 [3]

Dreary grey drizzly morning - good for an indoor activity. Connie O, Susie and Jen came over and we did our anti-aging strength and mobility workout. The squats were hard and not very powerful but the stiffness started to soften.
3 PM

cycling (town trails) 1:00:00 [3] 18.0 km (3:20 / km)

There was a break in the rain so Goose and I took a chance and did a loop of the town trails and didn't get wet:)

Felt surprisingly good today. Not too sore, just generally tired. I certainly wouldn't have wanted to climb any hills. The walk up the hill to the biathlon range may have triggered some PTSD but I survived.
Went for a very gentle, flat 10 km bike on the town trails.
