    I got an early start, taking granddaughter #1 out today to bicycle on some of Fort Collins’s trails. She led, with advice from me on where to take which branches, because it’s just so much easier to stay close and keep an eye on them from behind. It must have been obvious that Grandpa was hovering, as lots of the people we met were grinning. When we got back to her house she got off her bike and announced, “My legs are so tired! I’m gonna die!” When her mother came out and asked how the ride was, though, the granddaughter said, “It was great!” About five miles out and five back, so respectable for a seven-year-old. The remaining snow pack is melting furiously and the creeks are all full. We had to ride through a few inches of water going through a couple of the underpasses.

    This past Monday I was out by myself and did 20 miles at a considerably brisker pace. It was tiring. I don’t know if I’m ever going to get my legs back.Report

    I was completely wrong about the finish.

    Instead of having a firm(ish) triangle that you could not shift your weight on, you were supposed to turn your right hip into the wall and have your left foot on the nub below the finish (and your right foot supporting you a little bit).

    That took about half my energy.

    And everything hurts again.Report

    Went out yesterday and did my first “heavy” fieldwork (lots of walking over uneven ground, lots of stooping to observe the plants and collect data). I’m a little sore this morning but not as sore as I expected to be. (I work out, but it’s indoors, and walking over uneven ground where you can’t really *see* where you’re stepping because of tall vegetation leads to some jolts to the hips and knees).

    it’s good to be back doing it but I don’t love Oklahoma summers; it was already 90 when I was leaving the site around 10 am.

    I gotta go mow the lawn this morning, then am running down to a N. Texas quilt shop because I have a top I took in a couple months ago for quilting that’s ready to pick up. Might also run over to the Brookshire’s for better grocery shopping than can be had locally.

    Tomorrow is online Knit Club, but before that – a cleaning and yardwork workday at church, I guess. Not sure what I’ll volunteer to do; I don’t think climbing the big tall ladder to replace lightbulbs in the sanctuary is something I want to be doing. I’m hoping there’s something that needs cleaning; I can do that.Report

      Ugh, I have a certification I’ve been studying for (RedHat Certified Systems Administrator–Jaybird has to get it, too). I vacillate daily between “I could take this today and pass it” and “there’s no way I’m ever going to pass this.” And I have to renew my Security+ this year, though CompTIA has somewhat acknowledged that their entire shtick is a scam, so now we can pretty much just pay our money, do six hours of online training, and renew.Report

    My body remembered how to climb; my brain did not. Surprisingly, I wasn’t in any pain at all yesterday. I even went running! I guess that means I didn’t work hard enough…

    Personally, I’d like a quick refresher course in tying knots and in belaying, because I’d really rather not have to explain to Maribou how I dropped you!Report
