I showed up early at work to run with my coworkers just to learn that they went running Thursday instead so I had to run alone. No problem, I had a good relaxing run which suited me well. Distance: 5.87 km Time: 31m:44s Average speed: 11.1km/h = 5:24 min/km Average heart rate: 177 bpm URL: http://connect.garmin.com/activity/10361031 I forgot to switch my watch to running mode which is why Garmin Connect say I burned too many calories.
Finally I got around to increasing the distance some. I am gonna try to do at least one trip a week that is over 1h:30m as long as the season lasts. The weather was very good for a ride today. Not too windy and not too hot. Distance: 42.27 km Time: 01h:31m:57s Average speed: 27.6 km/h Average heart rate: 149 bpm URL: http://connect.garmin.com/activity/10020764
Twig and I went for a run this morning. It was very windy which only made it a lot harder pushing the jogger. It was a nice run all things considered. Distance: 7.79 km Time: 42m:15s Average speed: 05:25 min/km Average heart rate: 176 bpm URL: http://connect.garmin.com/activity/9961088
It has been a while since I late to my bike out. I need to get some rain weather tires for it so I can actually take it out on days where it has been raining. I did have a very good ride today, it was hard because of the wind but I am not complaining. Distance: 34.94 km Time: 01h:14m:24s Average speed: 28.2 km/h Average heart rate: 160 bpm URL: http://connect.garmin.com/activity/9804489
One of my coworkers and I had a nice run. We weren't super fast and my heart rate was high but I enjoyed it very much. Distance: 7.21 km Time: 39m:35s Average speed: 05:29 min/km Average heart rate: 180 bpm URL: http://connect.garmin.com/activity/9668742
A good little run with my coworkers. We took it easy and I decided not to run more than 5k after the fiasco of Sunday. Distance: 5.13 km Time: 27m:29s Average speed: 05:21 min/km Average heart rate: 175 bpm URL: http://connect.garmin.com/activity/9668729
After a couple of days with some stomach problems I went to take a run. I started out too hard and struggled through it. I should have spend another day recovering. Distance: 4.70 km Time: 23m:12s Average speed: 04:56 min/km Average heart rate: 177 bpm URL: http://connect.garmin.com/activity/9668711
I had a good run with my coworkers Tuesday morning. They ran around 5km and I did around 2.5km extra. It was all good. Plenty of energy and I could have continued on but I don't want to hurt my knee again. Distance: 7.47 km Time: 40m:02s Average speed: 5:21 min/km Average heart rate: 171 bpm URL: http://connect.garmin.com/activity/8834902
I got a good little bike ride in today. I enjoyed it a lot even if it was a little rough with some wind at times. I do need to get out on the bike more often though if I want to have a chance of starting to increase my distance. I probably need to ride a little slower and then try to ride further.... maybe I am just pushing too hard. Distance: 28.48 km Time: 58m:04s Average speed: 29.4 km/h Average heart rate: 158 bpm URL: http://connect.garmin.com/activity/8697347
I wonder if I will ever get used to running with the jogger. It sure is hard work but I am sure it is good exercise too. Weather was nice, it wasn't too hot and not too cold. I could have wished for a little less wind but on the other hand it could have been a lot worse. Distance: 5.25 km Time: 26m:03s Average speed: 4:58 min/km Average heart rate: 174 bpm URL: http://connect.garmin.com/activity/8604926 Since I am having no more knee problems I think I can safely start increasing distance although I doubt I need to do that with the jogger. I do need to get my ass in shape for Erimitageløbet in October. I just realized that Erimitageløbet is the day before I need to hand in my thesis.....
I had a good if a little hard run with Twig in the jogger. I enjoyed it though and so did the little man. It was somewhat windy but could have been worse. Distance: 5.29 km Time: 26m:25s Average speed: 4:59 min/km Average heart rate: 177 bpm URL: http://connect.garmin.com/activity/8350649
They cry like children when the data goes "bye bye". Yesterday I had an aweful scare. I have for the past 3 years had a dedicated server with Netdirekt and I have had no real complaints. I have had a some minor issues but none of great importance. My server had been up and running for 290+ days without a reboot (which is not uncommon for a Linux server at all) but when I got to work yesterday morning I couldn't access my email or connect to the server via SSH. A quick search on Google told me that I was not the only one having this problem. There was some speculation if this was a network or power problem but in the end people started reporting their servers coming back online but mine was still dead. I took it easy and assumed that it would come back online when it was ready. Several hours later I was still unable to reach it and I started getting worried. What if something like the harddrive had been fried or something. It is after all an old machine with old hardware. I tried going into my online server administration tool and rebooting it but that did nothing. Then I tried to boot it into rescue mode but that didn't work either. At this point I was starting to get really worried because all my email from the last several years are in Maildirs on that server and I access it all via IMAP so I have no local copy. I then wrote a hasty email to Netdirekt technical support and crossed my fingers that it was just because someone forgot to push the start button on my machine. After a little while I could check my email again, access the server via SSH and not long after I received an email that my server was back up and running. Thank you lord of computer hardware for not punishing this fool for not having backup. You would have thought I would have learned my lesson when a had one drive die on me in my desktop which was running Raid0. Luckily back then it was a new setup so I only really lost a little bit of configuration. Today I sat down and set up a simple backup system using rsync, SSH, tar and some simple shell scripting. Why on earth I never did that before I don't know. I even have rotating backups in case of corrupted or unintentionally deleted files. I used http://www.linux.com/archive/feature/113847 as inspiration for most of my scripts. But also the use of pg_dumpall came in handy to make sure I have backup of my Postgresql database. Now I just need a server out on the Internet somewhere with enough space to backup all the most important stuff from my home computers. All things in due time. I am hoping to be able to get my hands on a couple of 146GB harddisks for my IBM System p5 505. I have found some on ebay but the shipping and import taxes scare me a little. I want this computer up and running soon though.
It was a very nice day, not too hot, not too cold and not too windy. Performance wasn't too good today. I felt low on energy which also shows on my elevated heart rate. Maybe I should have eaten more breakfast and or had a glass of juice before the run. Distance: 7.47 km Time: 39m:44s Average speed: 5:19 min/km Average heart rate: 181 bpm URL: http://connect.garmin.com/activity/8185519
Finally I got around to taking a my bike for a spin. It was very nice to get out there again. My bike shape has not advanced as much as I would have liked. I probably need to adjust my expectations for this year. Distance: 30.42 km Time: 1h:07m:03s Average speed: 27.2 km/h Average heart rate: 152 bpm URL: http://connect.garmin.com/activity/7974194
I had a nice run with 2 of my coworkers on Friday morning. It was warm but not too hot. Distance: 5.11 km Time: 26m:53s Average speed: 05:15 min/km Average heart rate: 171 bpm URL: http://connect.garmin.com/activity/7949105 I still need to get back on the bike. Let's see what the weather is like tomorrow or maybe a can take a ride then.
