Not quite feeling sparky today. A little tired from yesterday, I guess.
with Rhonda at Stanclift, first outing of the season. Some wildlife on the lake: turtles on rocks, dragonflies, mother duck and ducklings, a pair of red-breasted mergansers on a log that didn't move as we swept by within 10-15 feet.
Picking up the rest of the controls, unremarkable but it started to rumble when we were leaving the first of them, and got pretty threatening by the time we got the last one, with about 10 minutes left to walk back, wondering the whole time if we would arrive before the rain, which came crashing down just as we reached the back porch. Very satisfying.
In the gym with Eric, feeling a bit looser than usual. Stretching, core, balance, deadlifts
circuit workout with Eric and Rhonda. First was 3 rounds of 20 BOSU pushups and then wall sit with 20# medicine ball while R was doing her pushups. Then row 300 and plank while R was rowing, then the easy part, alternating 20 crunches and bridges with feet on the swiss ball. Tiring

Course 1. Legs were tired from the circuit workout with Eric this morning, but a little faster than the other day.

Course 1 from yesterday. This was an experiment. I've been pretty reluctant to try to run the last week or two, and thought I would try going slowly and with as short a stride as I could manage - not pressing at all. And it was fine. I had done a lot of rolling and stretching before I headed out, and was certainly no worse off when I finished than when I started, and probably better.

Zipped out for a quick solo jaunt from PV. I'm thinking that biking is irritating my R quad, so maybe have to back off a bit, but this was a quick ride (for me at this stage of the game) and I tried to keep my cadence higher than usual.
