Biking 1:09:01 [1] 13.08 mi (5:17 / mi) +38m 5:14 / mi

Temps were 55 with 8 mph wind - nice. Debated doing this tomorrow, but it is supposed to be 65 with 16 mph wind, and less wind is better for me. So, pool tomorrow, which is better anyway to leave my legs a bit fresher.

Some 2016 numbers...not sure where I am going here, but they have been running around in my head this week.

Exercise hours = 260. The highest by ~10 since I started on AP in 2002 after excluding 2006, which included 141 hours of boot camp, which wasn't really good for me in the long run.

The 260 hours were spread out nicely between orienteering, cycling, swimming, and running and walking.

Biking 78:27
Swimming 57:54
Orienteering 55:16
Running/Walking 55:00
Other ~14:00

I exercised 237/366 days for an average of 1:06 per exercise day, or :45 per day. I averaged 2.5 days off per week.

Yup, I had some big chunks of down time. For 2017, I would like to limit the consecutive days off to 1-2, unless there is a physical reason I can't do anything. Even a jeans walk for 30 minutes counts. [I am going to ignore the three in a row I took off last week. :)]

I will try to swim twice a week, bike twice a week, run once per week, and get into the terrain once a week (can be orienteering or trail running).

On the food and drink front, I am cutting down on diet cokes - from 6-8 per day to two today, and one tomorrow. Testing the theory that the artificial sweetener is causing the bloat. Sweets still call my name, but at least I have stopped the massive Skittles consumption, and my gums and teeth thank me for that.
