That didn't take long...monitor didn't have good connection, so app finally said to change the patch. Not sure if: operator error the first time, jostling and falling a bit yesterday, accidentally water ingress past the patch, or the two times Harvey yanked on it, since I tend to carry him left side which puts curious hands right there and he can get good leverage.

There's approximately no spares, so not sure how it plays out or how to get more if needed. You know me and calling people....

Joe's Peach Mountain. 27 c, approximately 8 km straight-line.

I got to peek at the map, although you try not to plan too much when printing, some happens.

I was worried about pace, so I figured that CW would leave me leave the hills of the antenna as a potential drop.

Looking at LiveLox, not sure I had the optimal route!

Some minor errors, worst on 31 not seeing it from the top and looking back into the woods instead of more into the gravel pit...oof.

Super fun, thanks Joe!

Medical HRM taped on, will be on for about a month. It's a small puck with a fancy sticker with electrodes (sticker gets replaced every five days), and then it uses bluetooth and some Samsung phone + verizon to send the stuff. Phone has to stay with, so maybe I will run a light hydration pack for o meets for the time being. Bike shouldn't be too bad, put feedbags on or use jersey pocket.
3 PM

Biking 45:53 intensity: (3 @0) + (21:37 @1) + (18:48 @2) + (5:22 @3) + (3 @4) 5.86 mi (7.7 mph) +65m
ahr:137 max:167 weight:229lbs shoes: 2015 Camber

Cheated and drove to the trailhead, but in my defense after over a month of waiting, the library's copy of Karate Kid was mine for pickup, so I can watch it with daughter and see if she, unlike spouse, will watch Cobra Kai with me. So I had to pick that up and driving was faster than searching my hoarder garage for a bike lock.

Fun midweek bike handling practice here, never really opens up.

Also, when COVID ends and places, like parks, finally open bathrooms, it will be nice.

Fellow reached out, looking to maybe set a permanent course up here

If he gets it, I will beg him to help us do an event. Looks like it would be gorgeous and fun.
8 AM

Orienteering 1:10:38 intensity: (44:31 @0) + (26:07 @1) 1.94 mi (36:25 / mi) +50m 33:43 / mi
ahr:87 max:121

It's very inconsistent, even I do not know why it sometimes happens and sometimes doesn't...but if people ask/hint around at the right time, sometimes they get lessons. Nice lady from Grand Blanc. It was fun because I was able to watch her Livelox from GOAR beforehand to pick up on some of her potential issues. I think progress was made.

The one downside to Maybury is there is a great handrail lesson...that is overrun with wood/stinging nettle. So I need to tweak that part of the standard loop

Biking 1:10:41 intensity: (40:32 @1) + (25:44 @2) + (2:49 @3) + (49 @4) + (47 @5) 10.79 mi (9.2 mph) +113m
ahr:133 max:207 weight:231.2lbs shoes: 2015 Camber

Wandered out to the single track I knew, then decided to tack on the section I didn't know. It ended too soon, I enjoyed it. Sort of a mini AR loop - confusing junctions, paved, gravel, single track, hiking type trail, abandoned two track.

Something went a little awry, like old flutter redline, then went away.

Tuesday Oct 13 #


51 people (slightly fewer starts) for PM, not bad this early in the week. I capped the time slots at 15, might be time to bump them to 20!


Note to the 15 person cap doesn't seem like it capped anything. 33 for the 11 am time slot. :|

11 AM

Biking 58:08 intensity: (5 @0) + (24:23 @1) + (23:31 @2) + (9:03 @3) + (1:06 @4) 12.98 mi (13.4 mph) +83m
ahr:140 max:172 shoes: Long Haul Trucker

Schedule permitted a lunch time tour, so I explored. Note to self, don't kick branches on downed trees, just come back with a saw (small scratch).
