2007/09/30 Biking from San Francisco's Pier 39, through the Golden Gate Bridge, to Saulsalito
π 2007-09-30 23:26 by Merlin in Exercising

Since we were already in San Francisco Saturday, we slept over in a hotel there, picked up my burning man bikes and our stuff that had been trucked back from burning man, and used the bikes to ride from Pier 39 to the Golden Gate Bridge. Once on the other side, we did a nice climb to see the bridge from up high (> 1000ft), before going back down towards Saulsalito.























Saulsalito was a nice old city to see for a couple of hours while we were waiting for the ferry from Saulsalito back to Pier 39, to finish with a nice dinner on Fisherman's Warf with view on the water during the sunset.

Here's a link to the GPS track of our biking and a link to all the pictures of our little trip
2007/09/25 A new 3m/5k/3.2m record
π 2007-09-25 19:15 by Merlin in Exercising

After getting back into boot camp a bit, I took some diet rockstar energy drink, and went running for a couple of laps around the building (3.2 miles).
I don't know if it was the caffeine or just my shape, but I was able to beat 4 of my personal records today: sub 7mn mile for two miles in a row (6:55mn and 6:59mn)
3.0miles: 21:13
5k (3.1m): 21:57
3.2miles: 22:45
avg speed: 7:05mn/mile

I did run out of steam around the 3rd mile though, and I wanted to stop and walk the end more times than I ever wanted before, but still managed to shame myself into finishing. I guess it was worth it :)
