75 and breezy. Hard to complain on such a beautiful day, though I whined a little in my head when I stepped outside and felt how windy it was...maybe 15-20 mph. Some really strong gusts from the side at times.
Took my mind off of things for a little while. Have to say that losing two siblings three months apart has shaken me up a bit.
Misc (Lesson on Ed) 1 
ahr:94 max:154 weight:194lbs
Some therapeutic box wrangling at work, including pushing the handtruck up the steep ramp to the truck a few times.
Then off to see Ed. We trotted a bunch. Does my HR go up during trotting?
Took my bike and was going to take a ride at nearby Merkel after, but after driving there and sitting in the parking lot for a couple of minutes, I decided that I was done for and headed home.
Swimming 30:45  0.85 mi (36:10 / mi)
3x500 yards with rest in between. Had to share the lane the whole time.
Pool 8:00 
4x2 minutes vertical scissor kicking with 1 minute rest in between. Definitely working hard to keep from sinking.
July 11, 1954 - February 22, 2017
Unlike my sister, this one is more of a shock. There has been some tension over the years related to his behavior, so I am glad my nice brother showed up on Saturday, and he and my aunt made up.
Walking 1:03:00  4.1 mi (15:22 / mi) +52m 14:47 / mi
ahr:103 max:135 weight:197lbs
After work. Some steps at the school to make me breath hard, and some zig zagging on the grass in the park to stay on softer surface. Only ran down the hill from the school, otherwise all walking. Another beautiful day in the neighborhood.
Biking 1:13:05  14.01 mi (5:13 / mi) +212m 4:59 / mi
ahr:145 max:195 weight:193lbs
Thought that I would do a 20 mile ride today, but then I thought better of it. But, as the day wore on, I changed my mind a couple more times, and then it just happened. Well, not 20 miles, but a ride on another beautiful day. Felt surprising fresh despite yesterday's miles. Not unsore, but not toast either. Very pleased.
Walking 3:45:33  9.74 mi (23:09 / mi) +387m 20:37 / mi
What a beautiful day for a hike with Sandy. About 25 minutes of stoppage time.
Horses! The stable is on the way from Sandy's house to the trail head.
A well appointed twig house.
The shot of the Indian isn't too good, but the sky sure is pretty...
Rescued a penguin from the woods...
Penguin tied to my pack for the rest of the walk. Then, he was put out of his misery (not pictured), being only half inflated, and all that.
Roger and Nora discussing politics, most likely.
Sarah and Lailah stopped by briefly.
Then to Baltimore to meet up with my brother, James, to lay (the matter of) my mother's ashes to rest. Kind of the last mom related thing fraught with conflict and emotion. Obviously, I am happy that the ashes have been settled into the place my mother wanted to be. She was joined by my brother, David, who died in his teens, and my sister, Betsy.
Then to Philadelphia to take Nora home. Her cat Otis giving me the stink eye because I was out of treats...
