  1. swim
    good open water swim attempt 300 m

    Well, it wasn't that much swimming and there was a lot of choking on the waves and so on, but I got into the open water and spent some time thrashing about.

  2. walk
    good around and about 3 km

    Went for a nice long walk this morning... knee and leg were still swollen from too much driving and who knows what else so I didn't want to run. Then on the way home I passed the mountains and... read more

    I had planned to run a free 5k race tonight but I forgot to take my knee braces, and my knees flared up anyway and were really sore, clicking away. Thought I might buy another pair of braces on the... read more

      Yeah, some of the women who used to be in our DM friends group would go running at 4 am, Robert, and seemed to be OK with that, but "what makes sense" should be your determinant. If the evening is all that you can do, I guess that'll be what you can do. I am just surprised how many people run in the evening now. I used to see lots in the early morning, say 5 am, but now I see them mostly in the evening. If you have a choice....

      Today I saw women running on the track where I have been going, at high noon. It might be their only chance to go but summer at high noon isn't exactly a recommended time.

    good usual loop 5.6 km 00:35 10:03 pace

    Easy run around the usual loop. It was nice and cool today, 17C, so the dog walkers (including some who were smoking like chimneys and leaving a pall of smoke behind them) were out in force. Saw on... read more
