Monday 30k plus dryland

Rode in and out.

Muggy muggy morning. Liked it though.

Didn’t see anything of interest on the way in. Did have the displeasure of having to ride beside big ass trucks for a bit on Davenport. That wasn’t fun.

Went up he hill by castle Loma and decided not to gear down. Also not fun. Really sucked. I was standing and pretty much stuck in the gear because I couldn’t sit down and keep the pedals turning to stay upright while I geared down.

Ride home was super humid. Strong rain squalls today. Downright tropical. Roads were slick and grimy. Very close to getting doored. Just basic luck and innate good sense that i didnt. So glad I veared away from the cube van parked stupidly at the side of the road.

Didn’t see much else. Rode quickly along danforth. Not my fastest but not far off. I was pushing the pace quite nicely. The avg speed won’t be high due to having to slow in and out of lights but the power was decent.

Dryland was fine. I hurt my shoulder a bit doing press ups. I need to find a way to do pull downs instead.

That is all for now…

Sunday dryland

Skipped cycling all weekend. Just wasn’t feeling it. Almost went on Sunday but decided just to rest

Did some dryland

That is all for now

Friday am 6k

Up and out

Groggy first thing. Woke up from a deep sleep I guess. I was alone in bed when I woke up. It confused me.

Lots of fireworks last night. I think it was dwali (spelled incorrectly I’m sure). Gerard was a pig sty running through. Garbage everywhere. Cleaners weren’t out. Brutal.

Ran pretty consistently throughout. Didn’t feel good or energetic. Just ran. Pondered stuff going on as I ran. Though a lot about work and whether this is the place for me long term. Sad.

Didn’t see any runners on the way in. Just a sparse lonely run. Warm and sunny. Good for a short run but would have been harder if I was running long. Today is going to be hot.

I didn’t see a single thing of interest at all. Went to my espresso bAr. Nice to see the guy and chat a bit. Then onto the ttc.

I think I’m running At lunch today. That is the plan anyways. I don’t really care if I don’t though. Looks like two weekend rides. Once up the alpe and another general ride.

Need to hammer down whether I’m riding to nyc or not this year. Get a date. Get a route. Potentially get 2 more people.

That is all for now…

Thursday 30k plus dryland

Rode in and out today.

Slow and sluggish this morning. Wasn’t overly pretty but it was a thing. Still lots of trees down. Nice weather though.

Didn’t see much of interest on the way in. Lots going through my mind. That was the theme of the day.

Fucked up day. Never been this bad before. Quite upset and sad. Unfortunately today showed me definitively what I need to do. So I’ll begin that process.

Ride home was good. First few km were the happiest minutes of my day. I don’t understand how I am where I am but my god am I ever there. Rest of the ride was good. Still street lights out so there was real traffic. Zipped along for the rest of the ride though. Got home at 623 and nanny was gone seven minutes later. Crazy night.

Think I am running in tomorrow. Looking forward to a run and a coffee. Hope tomorrow is better than today. I expect more shit to come – in both directions.

That is all for now…

Wednesday 30k plus dry land

Rode in and out today.

Rained a bit on the way in. Touch humid. Not a ton going on. Kind of drawing a major blank when it comes to my rides these days. They seem to just go by. I think I spent most of the time running through shit in my mind. To little effect sadly.

Ride home was interesting. Crazy storm. Tons of trees down. Lights out. Strong winds.

Bit crazy at times. Happy to get home safe and happy to have no trees down.

Did dryland once at home. It was fine

Plan is to cycle and run tomorrow

Tuesday 5k run

Ran 5k at lunch. Was good. Yk is getting stronger. My legs are deeply shot. Just exhausted.

Anyways. Nice to get out and run. I’m going to spread out our run soon. Up to 6k.

Also going to get us on regular intervals.
