cycling 45:00 [1]

Work commute. I really like how quiet the commute is on spring break.
6 PM

cycling 15:00 [1]

Biking to/from Ulrik's Hill.

running 30:00 intensity: (20:00 @2) + (10:00 @4)

This includes 4 x Half Ulrik's Hill. I felt pretty good. That was a bit of a surprise since my legs felt a little tired from yesterday's MTB riding and it was crappy hot out.

I saw Mary on her West Campus run. She was running well.

MTB cycling 55:00 [1]

First ride on the river trails in a long time. Mountain biking is fun. But, I also noticed that I was a bit rusty and got more tired than I'd have liked for a not-very-long and not-very-hard ride.


Tuesday Mar 21 #

cycling 45:00 [1]

Work commute. When I first got outside this morning I thought, "gee, it is a bit chilly." I should have followed that with, "I'd better go get some gloves." I didn't. I'm not going to lie to you, my hands got cold.

6 PM

cycling 15:00 [1]

The biking part of today's bike/run/bike session.

running 40:00 [2]

On West Campus, including 5 x Half Ulrik's Hill.

I felt a lot better running the hill this week than I did last week. I also ran a bit harder.

I met a guy walking a dog on the hill. Both the guy and the dog seemed nice.


Monday Mar 20 #

cycling 45:00 [1]

Work commute. Another hot day, but it should be nicer tomorrow.

Mary and I went to Bon Bon for dinner. The food was good. We sat outside and that was nice. Mary spotted Tom Harper as he came in. Mary is starting to be a real Lawrencian - bumping in to people she knows at restaurants!


Sunday Mar 19 #

running 1:30:00 [2]

I ran/jogged on the trails and a bit in the terrain at Clinton State Park. I took frequent short stops to add notes for the map. The Garrmin said I was "moving" for a bit over 1:40, but I'll call it 1:30.

When I started the temp was mid/low 60s F. By the finish the temp was low 80s. I'm not sure how hot it got in Lawrence, but Topeka reached 90F (breaking the previous record of 81F). Yuck. The temp was draining. The trees haven't leafed out yet, so every step was in the sun.

The warm brought out lots of slithering things in the woods - snakes, I guess. I only saw a couple of snakes, but I heard a lot of things moving around in the underbrush. No ticks.
