Mountain biking at Pond Meadow Park

10:00am - Plan for the day: Walking at lunch with the health coach from work.

2:30pm - So yesterday I decided that I'm all done with triathlons for the season, but today as I was signing my girls up for the Kids 2 Camp race I decided to try the off-road sprint myself.  Should be fun!

6:00pm - When I got home from work I was not hungry for dinner yet, so I took "the Rock" (my 1989 Specialized Rockhopper) out for a recon ride through Pond Meadow Park.  It's been about 16-17 years since I last went mountain biking and it was my first time mountain biking with clipless pedals, so it was an interesting experience:

  • Lesson one - don't try to ride over an obstacle unless you're sure you can make it, because getting stuck in clipless pedals and falling over on a rocky trail really sucks. 
  • Lesson two - when you coast, keep the pedals at the 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock positions instead of 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock , so you don't bash your foot into a rock in the middle of the trail.

Monday - August 25

Met with the health coach at work again today.  It's been two weeks since I met with her, but in that time I lost 3.8 pounds, mainly due to my two big races.  I was glad to see that even with all the pigging out I did on vacation, my weight is still down.

Starting to think about what comes next, as I'm all done with triathlons for the season.  I need to spend some time working on things at home (for those who don't already know, my wife and I separated about a month ago), and I need to focus on my running.

The health coach at work leads a walking group every Tuesday and Thursday at lunch, and even though my legs are pretty tired I told her that I'll probably join them tomorrow just to get outside and get moving again.  She laughed and said that there's usually a "bunch of medical forms to fill out" but that since I had completed two triathlons in 8 days, she had "no concerns about me being able to walk 3 miles"!  LOL!
