| ||No friends to ride with, so I decided to ride to the Back Bay. Got a bit of headwind on the way down, good practice for my umpcoming RAGBRAI.
Very nice evening, and very clear views of the mountains. ||396||100/129|
| ||Worked a bit late and couldn't go swim, and the dogs still need walking. ||69||71/98|
| ||Overcast and even a misty day. Group was going fast and I was dropped early and often. The group did hold up a few times and then later others also got gapped, mostly by stoplights. ||423||110/129|
| ||Overcast and pretty windy. Some headwinds for sure. Finally got some sun as the day went on. ||451||78/118|
| ||Went for a commute ride with Mike on the SART. Anaheim Canyon to the Green River Parking Lot and then back to ARTIC. Took a little diversion to the Anaheim Coves Trail and then a little extra to get that 30 mile mark.
Some pretty good head winds heading back.
Good Friday evening ride. ||636||106/121|
| ||Good trail out on the bluffs area for a hares BDay. A bit cool and chilly out near the coast. Fun times to be back with this group. ||623||100/142|
| ||Walked back to the start after the run.
Trying to stretch the legs out a bit. ||261||96/108|
| ||New course for the Laguna Hills Memorial Day runs. I did the 10k and struggled. Hurt my calf last week and went easy and slow. This course ends up with some back loaded hills.
No mass start, staggered to spread everyone out. ||908||128/141|
| ||A short loop with a Trinidad start. Friend brought some new paddlers so we kept it easy on them. ||698||86/127|
| ||Day before Memorial Day with very little sun. Still, a total sh!t show out on the water. So many poor boat handlers.
We still had fun, but wanted more sun. ||1462||84/126|
| ||An early (for me) paddle at 8am. Fully cloudy, windy and chilly. Stayed to the inside to avoid winds and did a few loops. Many sea lions spotted, mostly at the bait barge. All seemed to be bulls. ||195||64/105|
| ||My coworker takes the train and rides a mile plus to work from the station.
Lately, he's getting off the train early to ride more miles home to Corona on Fridays.
Today I joined him.
We took the train from Irvine to Anaheim Canyon (coincendentally our company was within 1/2 mile from here 22 years ago when there was no train station - we've both been working ther e a long time)
We rode SART to Green River where the trailhead is closed for neverending construction.
We parted and I rode back to the ARTIC station to catch the last train back to Irvine.
I got a good headwind on the way back.
Mostly new trail to me and a good Friday.
Had to ride a little extra to make sure I got to 30 miles. ||625||102/126|
| ||Taking both the dogs out for a bit a little bit of a walk. ||77||77/101|
| ||After the dog walk, took one of the dogs for a run (the others running days are over)
I was oh so slow, pupper kept up nicely. ||394||120/120|
| ||It got pretty warm today, and the ride went pretty fast. Cracked a bit but was able to hang on. Picking up a little bit of speed. Great temps post ride, like a warm (but not hot) summer night. ||518||125/147|
