11 PM

Biking 1:12:32 [1] 30.14 km (24.9 kph) +212m

Evening ride, 8 C. I saw a possum, fox/coyote, and raccoon. Getting out into the night was glorious, though my perineum and sit bones are not acclimated to the pressures of a conventional bike saddle.

10 PM

Biking 1:12:46 [1] 30.17 km (24.9 kph) +233m

First outdoor bike ride of the year! It was a balmy 12 C today, so I decided to head out. One of the screws on my aerobars had apparently stripped, so I removed them and rode in the drops and on the hoods. A possum started marching across Victoria Park, and despite my braking and swerving, I side swiped the poor little guy. To my relief, it seemed unharmed, turned around, and marched back into the shrub from whence it came. Garmin isn't downloading for some reason.

My fitness had clearly declined somewhat, and I noticed that my crank arms are somewhat larger on my actual bike than my stationary bike. But my bike was mechanically sound. I lacked red line discipline; I was too enthusiastic attacking climbs and quickly overdid it.
