Enjoying life one day at a time

Sunday - July 21

nothing today... just packing up and heading home. I decided to forego the epic ride home this year, even though it was a PERFECT day for it. I don't want to aggravate my foot/ankle any more then it already is. Felt fine this morning, but when I stepped off the vehicle while packing up I felt it twinge and then it started hurting again. I was considering on taking the crew to a waterfall in Owen Sound, but decided against it as my foot would have just pissed me off and I wouldn't have been able to enjoy it.

GREAT week at the cottage. Lots of fun (even though I was a lame duck all week). I did have one bad experience though... lost my wallet and had to cancel all my cards and report it lost/stolen to the police, drive to Owen Sound to have temporary license and health card issued and now have to worry about all the info being used for identity theft. :( 

Saturday - July 20

Bike
  • 1h 43m
  • 59.20 kms
  • 34.49 KM/hr

A good hard TT for my last ride at the cottage. Legs felt pretty wasted after the first 2/3 of the ride but I kept going. That meant another 11 km into the wind but the same distance back with tailwind. Had a great hard ride.

Frolicking in the waves... first really windy day, had some pretty impressive waves to play in. I went out for a good 30 minutes, making sure the kids understood the serious undertow and cautioned them about going out to far (as they were trying to get out to the next sandbar... bad idea. They listened though and had fun playing in the waves... these are all teenagers, not children any more, so I was impressed that they listened and didn't argue at all.

Wednesday - July 17

Bike #1
  • 1h 04m 53s
  • 34.40 kms

Ride up to Oliphant and back through Sauble. Nice morning, just a little windy though along the beach.

No metrics though... I have it but am too lazy right now to look it up.

Bike #2
  • 45m 44s
  • 20.60 kms
  • 27.03 KM/hr

Ride with #3 son and it was a good one. He stayed with me and didn't complain. Took it very easy and rode out for 10 km (about 2 km short of Southampton turn around) but I'm not pushing it with him, 20 km is a good ride for him.

He sprinted a couple times... and took the lead most of the way back (tailwind, so easier for him). Good ride with my buddy! :)

Swim
  • 31m
  • 914.40 meters
  • 03m 23s /100 meters

Did a lovely swim in crystal clear calm water. Was just amazing, like swimming in a pool. Just a nice steady swim.

Tuesday - July 16

Bike
  • 30m 26s
  • 12.90 kms
  • 25.43 KM/hr

VERY easy ride up to Sauble Beach and Macbeth's bakery. The kids wanted Cinnamon Buns, so I went into town before anyone was up and got us some. It was already unbearably hot at this time... with humidity was probably over 30*C at 9 in the morning. This was a brutal hot day, but I didn't really care, I was at the beach!!! :)

Did a little swimming but nothing to write about. Mostly just hung out under the umbrellas and read... my ankle has been bothering me lately and walking gets very painful. The more I do, the worse it gets.

Monday - July 15

Bike
  • 50m
  • 30.00 kms
  • 36.00 KM/hr

Just a quick little TT down to Southampton and back. Put up some serious times on this route and I wasn't really trying. Had a great tailwind down and was mostly protected on the way back. It is a PERFECT cycling road too... full bike lane for the entire 11 km, mostly flat, fully tree lined, and traffic is usually pretty considerate. It was a perfect morning for a ride.
