Whoops, I forgot to blog yesterday.

BRAG has been great so far. The two hardest days in terms of climbing are done.

It’s 3:15am in Gainesville, and we are about to get slammed by a thunderstorm.

I solved today’s Wordle in three attempts; my starter today was CHART.

  1. We were spared! While it rained some it wasn’t nearly as bad as predicted.

    Not a bad weekend. Got the scooter ready for the trip and am almost packed.

    Rode Friday (awful) and rode Sunday (much better). Didn’t take the BP med before the ride Sunday and never felt light headed or weak (other than fitness). Good information.

    Wordle pissed me off on Saturday when I whiffed on NANNY. In 3 today.

    Looked like you might have had rain in camp yesterday evening. Glad the riding is going well. I was certainly hoping this wasn’t going to be a blog free week.

    You just check in, we can take it from here.


  3. Brewery in Jefferson, GA is open so the Chattahooligans have stopped.

    I had a glorious 50 mile ride on the Silver Comet on Saturday. I could have ridden faster/longer but Stuart was having some hip issues. I then swam 1/2 mile and that evening discovered Deepdene Park on Ponce. How in the hell have I been in Atlanta for almost 40 years without knowing about this place? It’s a wooded park in the middle of the city, with some stunningly tall tulip poplar trees.

    Sunday I got my zen on with a monthly qi gong/meditation class and another 1/2 mile swim. I was supposed to ride in the afternoon but that got rained out so I let my daughter practice driving in the rain instead. And showed her how to check the air in a car’s tires. I know “Mr. TPMS” here will appreciate that. πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰

    Today’s Wordle was another “grind it ’til you find it” day, 3 correct letters in 2, 4 correct letters in 3. Ugh. I was put out of my misery in 5.

    NANNY was definitely a close call over the weekend, I made it out in 5 on that one too.

      Look at you, Mr. Triathlete! Well done.

      I know I’ve run around that park, but don’t know about through it. This reminds me, is the Fernbank Forrest still around and accessable?

      • David says:

        Thanks, Steve! I actually am working toward doing a sprint tri at some point. I’m going to roll my own, this won’t be about being in a competition, rather it’ll be about accomplishing something that always felt like something I would never ever be able to do. Well, as they say, never say never.

        • David says:

          And yes, the Fernbank Forest is alive and well. I need to check it out next, it sounds similar to Deepdene, just bigger. https://www.fernbankmuseum.org/experiences/exhibits/outdoor-exhibits/fernbank-forest/

        • Barb says:

          I’ve never wanted to do a tri – the whole idea of swimming with that many people – I don’t feel the need to get kicked in the head.

          And – I can’t run…..

          • David says:

            That’s why I’m going to roll my own! πŸ˜‰ I can’t run either, but I can walk fast, again. It’s my tri and I’ll run if I want to… πŸ™‚

            I have an Olympic sized pool across the street from me. I don’t know if I’ll get a big enough head of steam during the season this year, but I could totally manage a sprint tri from my house. I can also base out of the Y at any time during the year. I’ll see where I get with it.

    I actually rode my new road bike Sunday – 38 miles on the Silver Comet – I don’t’ even realize the assist is there, I rode with it is Eco mode (the lowest option) the whole time. BUT -we averaged 15 – which is a little faster than I would have been on my old bike. The battery range is about 60 miles. I will need to get the battery backup (which looks like a water bottle) if we want to do longer rides, or hillier rides, when I turn the assist up higher.

    I actually mountain biked Friday night & Saturday too. Who am I???

    • David says:

      Go Barb, go! That’s great! It felt so good to be back on the Silver Comet on Saturday. We had a nice lunch at Rails in Rockmart. My usual haunt, the biker bar called Knucklehead Cafe wasn’t open yet.

      • Barb says:

        Where did you start? We actually talked about going to Rockmart next time – we started at Florence Road, so I think that would make it about 50. Even with the assist – my lack of riding made 38 a good number of miles.

        • David says:

          We started at Florence Road. It’s about 52 miles round trip. Florence Road is mile 11.7, Rockmart is mile 37.6.
