9 AM

Gym 15:00 [3]

mini yoga class from Rhonda, with my friend Dave. good stretching, and an eye opener for Dave, who has his own flexibility issues.

Gym 10:00 [3]

small session with Dave, including some wall squats, and then 100 air squats. humid day and got sticky pretty quickly.
1 PM

Hike 1:00:00 [3] 3.0 mi (20:00 / mi)
shoes: 2011 Merrell Trail Glove

Around Waskosim's Rock with Zack. Pouring rain, much more than I had anticipated. We were soaked in the first minute, and didn't get any drier. Otherwise fine.

Hike 1:30:00 [3]
slept:6.5 (injured)

Walk from oak bluffs to first bridge at state beach and back, mostly with Isabel, while Rhonda & Jess were running. Jogging is not compatible with the state of my wrist.

slept:4.0 (injured)

since the surgery is not happening until Wednesday, we got up at 2 and headed to Woods Hole to catch our 7 am ferry. Made for a long day, including picking up Zack who arrived on an 830 pm boat, and Jess who got in from NYC at 1015 pm. Nice to be in Oak Bluffs, hanging out with my old friends.

A little setback - not sure the full dimensions of it yet. Fell off my bike yesterday and broke my wrist. Surgery scheduled for next Wednesday. I would tell a more elaborate story, but logging with this injury is a bit like trying to deliver a speech with laryngitis.
9 AM

Gym 10:00 [3]
shoes: 2011 Merrell Trail Glove

Stopped by the gym in town mostly to visit, but ended up doing several sets of squats and 100 lunges for time (3:10). Just to keep my hand in, as it were.

5 AM

Gym 1:05:00 [3]
slept:7.25 weight:159.5lbs

Rhonda's morning class. I haven't been in a long time. A pretty good crowd for a summer morning, six of us. Pretty hard for me, with weakness in my left shoulder and a tight sore back. Probably a step in the right direction.
7 AM

Gym 45:00 [3]
shoes: 2011 Merrell Trail Glove

workout today was a bunch of overhead squat practice, then 21-15-9 of overhead squats and burpees, except I got to do a different kind of squat, holding a 30 lb dumbbell endwise just under my chin because I am so bad at OHS - no back flexibility.
3 PM

cycling 20:00 [3] 5.0 mi (4:00 / mi)

Mt bike to Stanclift Cove to meet Rhonda, who was swimming. Almost there when it came to an abrupt end. Preparing for a left turn on the steep downhill, looked back to see a truck coming. Because of very limited neck mobility, I turn my body pretty far to see back. When I straightened out and started to brake the front wheel started to whip back and forth and I couldn't get it under control in the nanosecond or so before plummeting to the pavement.

My wrist was obviously broken, but otherwise very lucky. Very minor raspberries on r shoulder and r ankle, no other discernible damage. Got up with a bit of assistance from the truck guy who had stopped, coasted down the access road to find Rhonda and which a ride to the ER at Charlotte Hungerford in Torrington, where they decided I was a fast track patient. Location, location, location. I would have been a much lower priority at St Francis or Hartford Hospital, where gunshot wounds and stabbings are regular competition for less dramatic injuries like mine.

8 AM

Hike 24:00 [3] 1.3 mi (18:28 / mi)
slept:8.0 weight:160.5lbs shoes: 2011 Merrell Trail Glove

dog walk with Sassy and Rhonda. Nice morning, not too warm yet.
9 AM

Gym 35:00 [3]
shoes: 2011 Merrell Trail Glove

some warmups and practices, then the workout was as many rounds as possible in 13 minutes of 5 deadlifts and a "sprint" that may have been a run of about 60m out and 60 m back. Plus a little transition jog because I wasn't set up for the deadlifts near the start and finish of the run. DLs with 135. Made 11 sets of DLs and 10 runs in the time limit. Big class today - 15 participants. Most of them were slowing down considerably as the workout went on. So I was about in the middle of the pack early, but running faster than most of them by the end. Made my calves hurt again.
12 PM


AOWN - a couple of foxes out strolling across the driveway, one quite young. Sassy blissfully unaware, just hanging around snoozing.
3 PM

cycling 1:27:45 [3] 19.0 mi (4:37 / mi)

From Pleasant Valley, partway up Sandy Brook and back, with Rhonda. Nice afternoon.
