Completely unmotivated today. Should have been grading homework but it didn't happen. Finally decided to get outside on the crowded Wissahickon trails.

Really buggy. Little biting gnat like things. Annoying.

strength & stretching 40:00 [3]

Put my watch on but never started it. :(

Another decent free on-line workout:

I plan to try the free Peleton app. next.


I just went to the grocery store for the first time in over a week. It was very interesting to see which items were gone. I wasn't expecting to see flour emptied out - are people suddenly deciding to bake, are they baking with their kids, or what? There was plenty of the bread in the bread aisle so it didn't make sense to me. Must be missing something.

But the big takeaway was driving past the "New Frontier Outfitters" store. There was a long snaking line of people who I am assuming were buying guns and/or ammunition. That has really shaken me up.

It turns out, that when I was young and unaware of what was going on in the world, during the scary beginnings of the cold war, my parents bought a rifle and hid it behind a fake panel in their closet. I was never aware when I was little, but only learned of it 15 or so years ago. They must have been pretty scared of what might happen to decide to bring a gun into a house with 6 kids.

Is the same thing going to happen now? Are people arming themselves in anticipation of a total breakdown of society? This is not good.

ahr:101 max:101

Some yard work then around the meadow loop. Again, tons of people out - lots of kids with (I presume) their parents and lots of older folks. And everyone was getting off the trail to pass keeping much more distance than a few days ago.

Yard work takes its toll on my back so I just did a short easy loop.

strength & stretching 45:06 intensity: (18:42 @1) + (14:42 @2) + (10:55 @3) + (47 @4) 0.67 mi (1:07:20 / mi)
ahr:103 max:141

Pretty good workout and it was free. Just modified the jumping stuff but they had someone showing modified moves so it all worked.

Hopefully I can find a few more of these so I don't get tired of just one.

hiking 3:01:59 intensity: (42:45 @1) + (1:12:11 @2) + (1:05:36 @3) + (1:09 @4) + (18 @5) 7.07 mi (25:44 / mi) +186m 23:48 / mi
ahr:106 max:159

Despite stopping and sitting and eating at about an hour 45, my knee was not happy the last two miles. Grrrr.... I thought I had figured that out. :(

Park pretty crowded again today. Lots of parents with kids and elderly people walking in twos and threes. And a handful of high school students. Just so strange see all these folks on the trails. It's a good thing but unusual. I wonder how long it will last.
