Today we spent the entire day at the track.  We headed over in the morning to stake out good seats to watch the race, then after the race we stayed behind and had dinner there so we would not have to deal with the heavy traffic right after the race.  When we got back to the campground, it was raining steadily, so we sat under the canopy for a while, then I went to bed.

  • 16.12 Mi/hr
9:00am - This morning I did an out-and-back route along Seneca Lake before we headed over to the track.  I forgot my sunglasses, but that did not prove to be an issue until just before I got back to the campground.  I was coming down a long, downhill section at about 35 mph when my eyes started watering.  Just ahead, I noticed what I thought was a small rock in the road.  I tried to veer away from it, but I clipped the edge of it instead.  It shot up and hit me in the foot, at which point I realized that it was a lug nut from a car wheel.  Wow, did that hurt!  :(

Friday - August 10

7:00am - I had planned on getting up and riding this morning, but it poured all night and I did not get much sleep from the noise of the rain on the roof of the tent.  There was still a light drizzle this morning, so I decided to skip the ride altogether.

9:00pm - Today we spent the afternoon doing wine tastings at a number of local wineries, then went to the track for tonight's Rolex Grand Am race.  Once we got there, I had to walk up to the part of the track where all the merchandise trailers are to pick up a scanner and pair of headphones that I had rented for the weekend.

7:00pm - Today I spent 6+ hours driving out to Watkins Glen, NY with a friend for the Rolex/NASCAR race weekend.  Once we got to campground, got set up and had dinner, I went out for a run.  The area is outrageously hilly, which was reflected in my pace.  At the start of the run, I discovered that the battery in my HRM belt had died, so there's no HR data.

Wednesday - August 8

Sport
  • Yard Work
  • 1h 00m

7:30am - Tomorrow morning I'm leaving for a 5-day camping trip to Watkins Glen, NY.  So, my time after work tonight is going to be spent finishing my laundry and then getting everything packed.  Weather permitting, I may take the girls over to the kids track meet, since tonight is the last meet of the summer.

5:00pm - When I got home from work it was steaming hot, so I decided that it would be unwise to take the girls up to the track meet.  They were a bit disappointed, but I did not want them overdoing it in the heat.  Also, it allowed me to get my lawn mowed before packing for my trip.

Tuesday - August 7

Sport
  • Volleyball
  • 2h 00m
8:00pm - Tonight was the last night of outdoor pick-up volleyball, so I wanted to go despite the humidity.  Thankfully, I had the good sense to bring one of my running tops to wear instead of a cotton t-shirt like everyone else. :)

Monday - August 6

9:30pm - Well, it was not a great workout, but at least I did get my a$$ off the couch and do it.  :)  After dinner I dozed off on the couch, and when I woke up around 8:00 I decided to try to squeeze in a quick swim before the "Y" closed.
