16.7 miles. It was 71.1F / 21.7C just before the sun rose above the mountains this morning for almost an hour ride. All the cars behaved.

Zero miles today but shoveled 3 yards of mulch onto the new garden with another three to go.
My wife had her last of the two Pizer shots about 4 weeks prior to me getting the Covid, she and I came down with it on the exact same day! So she got covid after getting what is called the best shot on the market currently. I don't know enough about science to know what the hell I'm talking about, but the 2 shot vaccines supposedly somehow interfere and change our genes to make us immune, I'm not so sure if I want my genes messed with. The Johnson and Johnson one doesn't do that from my understanding, so I think if I were to get one of the shots it would be the J and J one. I like I said, I'm very ignorant about this sort of stuff and the internet just confuses it all the more. I do know I have a couple of doctor and nurse friends and they say they will never take any vaccine for this, but I have other doctors and nurse friends who say they have already taken it and are recommending I do so as well. So apparently not even the medical society is 100% into this, if they don't know then how the hell is anyone else suppose to know?

Didn’t ride today but still achieved a 3 PR on Strava walking my dog up a short 8% grade. Made me feel pretty good until I realized how much I suck on my bike. Still had to laugh. Walked 2.5 miles. Average speed 1.5 MPH and climbed 360’. No e-bikes passed me either

My Terrier has his own PR's. How many marks he can make on a 2 mile walk. His PR is 9 since I have tracked his PR's.

My dog is on prednisone and drinks water like a fish and pees constantly. On our daily 3 mile walks, 4-6 stops is not unusual. Your Terrier wins hands down.

Did a lap around Mercer Island (sans dog) on my bike. The west side has tons of S curves and is slightly downhill. The east side not so curvy and has between a 1 to 4% grade. I chased a guy down on the east side and passed him at the south end of the island. Mid-way on the eastside climb the guy blows by me on a $&@ e-bike. I could out handle him but can’t outclimb electric assist. He was going so fast there was no point in trying to draft, besides I don’t draft people I don’t know.

That'd be a rough draft, & surely would have to correct for the leads poor riding agility.

80 miles on the SoCal river MUPS on a mostly overcast May gray day. Meh!
Flattish, straight and grey is no way to go through life.

Look on the bright side; You've curbed some potential body curves & detoured away from some of life's mental blues.

Leaving downtown Seattle on foot/bike Kitsap ferry

Returning to Seattle on regular WA state car/truck/bike

The two straight legs were ferry rides across Puget Sound. The mileage was all by bike.
