Got up to catch Flights race only to find the feed off air. Now trolling it to see if they pick up coverage again since they do list the event as being active.

Road cycle (Bacchetta ) 45:48 intensity: (36 @1) + (9 @2) + (1:06 @3) + (8:33 @4) + (35:24 @5) 21.42 km (2:08 / km) +216m 2:02 / km
ahr:153 max:162 shoes: Specialized Comp mountain

I took a bit of time while Mrs and J were out to log some intensity 5 time. There were a lot of cars on the street, but most of them weren’t moving so I was able to maintain a decent pace. My heart reached its steady state mid way through the second interval. In the third interval the little neighbourhood kids decided to join me on their bikes so I eased off when they got in range.

Mrs’ Camry came home near the 20km make so I finished that interval and took a couple of cool down laps to see how well my heart would recover. I might not be as far out of shape as I suspected.

Road cycle (Greenspeed ) 1:06:48 intensity: (10:14 @1) + (14:33 @2) + (22:37 @3) + (15:45 @4) + (3:39 @5) 21.39 km (3:07 / km) +96m 3:03 / km
ahr:132 max:166 shoes: Specialized SWorks road

Cool, damp, windy outing before going to collect J for the long weekend. Parking suggested many people took the day off - most of them seemed to be driving around town so I avoided all roads.

The trike is running well, but must have known I visited ‘Bent yesterday because it threw my emergency Cliff Bloks on the trail twice in the first 5 km. I also had a pause to adjust the mirror - the driveway setting wasn’t quite the rear visibility I really want. And I need to remember to mount the big taillight.

I was surprised to see these shoes have almost 11 thousand kilometres on them. It suggests that the shoes I had before recording this stuff might have had more use than I estimated. It might be time to start looking for new road shoes since these are the last I have in service.

Right side joints all a bit wonky today - I’ve had this periodically for a couple of months.

Note

Strange corporate group at Habitat today. A few no shows so I expected to be working alone and set up my space for that. Then at the last minute I got 3 helpers.

One said he couldn’t do anything with his arms. I wondered what he expected to contribute at a build site. He disappeared in the first half hour. A woman from another group left after an hour.

Another of my helpers said he couldn’t reach above his head or use his left arm. I got him to measure and score drywall. He also hammered a few nails and disappeared when lunch arrived.

My third helper was filling her summer after a university term and was good, until she hammered her hand. I didn’t learn this until she had been missing for 45 minutes. After getting some ice, she came back to provide moral support while I worked alone, then put away a few tools and left early.

Translation of my bike names:
Big Unit: 29er mountain style 1 speed, usually set with free wheel hub because gearing is to small for my legs to keep up on down hills.

Goldie: gold fixie built on a KHS frame.

Greenspeed: X5 steers like a go cart and is the most fun you can have on a pushie. It is a bit to short to be road safe.

Smokie: Specialized road bike: S Works SL2, full dura ace, Zipp 404

Stumpjumper: what the name says, S Works version

Cross Bike: This is a Wilier Cross bike my wife bought me as a spare. I run it with knobby tires and egg beaters in winter and for summer switch it to road tires and speedplay zeros. It has a less aggressibe setup than Smokie.

Vinnie: mid 80s mountain bike. No suspension. Mostly original parts, though I changed the bottom bracket and replaced the pedals that had smashed into too many rocks and curbs. I use this as a dirty bike - bad weather, rides the roof of the car to far away places and generally gets all manner of abuse.

I'm not currently using any of my other bikes for training. I have a write up comparing these, a BikeE and a Bachetta that you can read using the link below.
