    Every two years or so, we debate Steve O's sanity.

    It's really not so bad, if you stick the right, avoid the drainage grates and hustle:

    The heart rates say otherwise.

    Default S. Arlington conditions Friday 3/17

    W&OD from S 7th to S. George Mason fine, with one icy patch at 7:45 a.m.
    Bike lane on George Mason to Wakefield High covered in some places
    Trail on Walter Reed from Dinwiddie to 4 Mile Run Trail fie
    4 Mile Run Trail and detour to Mt. Vernon Trail fine, with a small icy patches
    Mt. Vernon Trail to 14th St. bridge fine, with one 10-or-so-foot long icy/crusty patch in shade under bridge and frozen water from 14th St. bridge drain
    14th St bridge has minor frozen rivulets that pose no problems.

    Maybe by tonight most of it will be gone? Just watch for icy patches if you're riding after dark!

    At my age, I can no longer achieve those heart rates. In theory (220 - age) anyway.

    I'm part hummingbird. I stopped wearing a HRM because I was tired of people freaking out over my max rather than looking at how quickly I recover.

    At my age, I can no longer achieve those speeds, either. (Whom am I kidding--I never could!) And the last thing I want is to be careening down the Whitehurst with drivers behind me pissed off because I'm holding them up.

    You get checked out by a cardio? I usually have to wear a HRM because I get a-fib once in a while. If you used max HR formula, I was -7 at this race, and a few times I have been up to -32 years old.

    Mulch path at south end of Roosevelt Island Parking lot getting deeply rutted (my pedal hit the muck at one point and I was completely upright!).

    Swamp and bog are two words that come to mind. Time for the 110 detour again.
