7 AM

slept:7.75 weight:163.2lbs (rest day)

Went out this morning with Zack to try to find some boundary pins, try to walk a line through some mountain laurel to see if a guy is building a patio on my property. Only found some of the pins, but best guess is he is right up to but not over the line. Of course there are supposed to be setbacks, which he has certainly not observed. I need to cut some laurel to get a better idea, though. I knew where all these markers were 15 years ago, but not so easy now. We found a pipe and a piece of rebar, but several more to go.

My back is acting up again today. Too much sitting, but a lot of sitting to look forward to, as all my rate filing reports are due on Monday.
4 PM


Driving east I came upon a really handsome black bear crossing the road onto the southern part of my property. Nice big male, looked very happy. Strolled across the road into the greenery, found a few things to munch on.

From PV with Rhonda. Felt ok on the way out, tied up when I turned around and the way back was pretty irritating to neck and hip. Nothing serious, I think, as it calmed down once I got off the bike.

Wildlife encounters while hiking in the yard:

1. Large dark animal scurrying across the trail got Sassy's interest. Turned out to be quite a big porcupine, safely scrambled up a tree. Perhaps Sassy remembered the last time she met up with one, because she didn't chase it.
2. Turkeys - Sassy has been chasing them pretty regularly, lots of squawking, flying up into the trees. So far she doesn't seem to have caught one.
3. The hawks are very vocal the last few days, calling pretty much continually. Not sure what they are up to, maybe being hassled by crows, as I heard some of them, too.
7 AM

Gym 1:00:00 [1]
slept:7.0 weight:165.4lbs

In the gym with Eric. He had been away on vacation the last two weeks. I was pretty twisted and uncomfortable this morning, but a lot of forced stretching and rolling got me much straighter, and I even managed about 5 sets of DLs, albeit with 85 lbs, and felt much better after, if still a bit vulnerable.

Hike 1:30:00 [1] 6.0 km (15:00 / km)
slept:7.0 weight:164.4lbs (injured)

Alas, another back episode. Whatever other stuff is going on, my back had been feeling pretty good the last few weeks, but just tightened up getting up from breakfast this morning and it has been pretty painful all day. Walking seems to be the happiest thing I can do with it. Several loops of the dog loop, so the dog is getting some pretty good exercise today.

Not making much headway with the stretches that usually loosen it up.
