• Canoeing
  • 55m

Time is an estimate. We didn't get our official time and will have to wait for the results to be posted online. We did finish 4 out of 38 boats. I think we had a good race, but just couldn't stay with the leaders. We definitely need more time in the canoe if we are going to race. This was our first time in the boat this year. Race report will follow when I get the correct times.

First race of the season is today.  (5 mile Canoe race)
I behaved last night, and didn't drink too much or stay out too late.  So I am feeling good this morning.  Wife went to bed early last night, and is still sleeping.  I hope she is up to the challenge today.  I really think we can make a run for the front of the race this year.  Wish us luck.

Scheduled day off.  If I wasn't so busy today I probably would have trained a bit.  This is the nicest day we have had yet this year.

I took my sister-in-law for an eye appointment today.  It was a followup to laser surgery.  She is fine.

My wife got her final fit, and picked up her new Felt F4C today.  (Pic is in my album)
It really seems to fit her well.  I hope she really likes it.

The rest of the day was a small gathering for the mother-in-law's birthday, and dinner/cards with the neighbours.

1200m easy swim

Supposed to be a day off, but tomorrow is looking so busy that I might move tomorrows workout to today, and then take tomorrow off.  

I'm scared to step on the scale today.  Two day's ago I finally weighed in under 240 lbs for the first time in a long time.  It seems I have been stuck at 240-241 FOREVER.   I would like to be down close to 230lbs by June.  I am running out of time to do that unless I start seeing more movement shortly.

Was supposed to be a speed workout. I switched partway through to Z2 swim

Gym workout felt ok.

Baby chicks/ducks/geese arrived yesterday.  We already lost 2 chicks.  Both just dead this morning for no visual reason.  Hope that is not a trend that continues.

I feel better after a good nights sleep.  Yesterday's bike ride was tough to finish, I was really tired.

Z2 bike ride, with a few short bursts of high cadence.

Well, I worked straight through the night on a really frustrating problem.
I know I am really close to solving it, but just can't get there.  I really need to solve this problem and time is running out.

45 minutes sleep last night.  But I got the problem solved.

My new P2C should arrive at the bike shop within the next few days.  I'm anxiously awaiting the phone call to schedule a final fit.

Today is exam day.  I have a Psychology exam at 7pm tonight.  This might cause me to miss all or part of my workout depending on how late I am stuck at work.


High winds caused power issues at work today, which lead to equipment issues.  I was almost late for my exam, and had to rush bad to work.  I'll likely be here all night.  So much for getting a workout in today.

On a positive note, I think the exam went well.
