6K completed. Dogs along the way given treats. Good tunes.
6K completed by noon. Moderate temps and wind at my back for the return leg. Pendulum: Live at the Village Vanguard in my ears. Fantastic recording you probably missed. David Liebman – Randy Brecker – Richie Beirach – Frank Tusa – Al Foster.
Today’s 6K walk featured dead legs. Not promising considering I have a lot of rowing still to do this evening. One of the greatest big band albums ever recored helped my ears feel good. Toshiko Akioshi-Lew Tabackin – Tales of a Courtesan (Oirantan)
6k walk completed. Toshiko Akiyoshi/Lew Tabackin Big Band – Long Yellow Road. I had a nice view of Missouri River valley. I could see from downtown KC all the way to Kansas from the ridge at Park Hill South H.S.
6K walk today. Added an extra kilo by looping through the neighborhood that takes me behind the high school complex. Bud Shank and Bob Cooper for music. Love that west coast sound.
Walk completed. Brisk. Legs are good. Andrew Hill – Mosaic Select 16 for accompaniment.
Started my walk after dark tonight so the walking and rowing all got jammed into the same workout period. 2x5000m on the Concept2, powered by Art Pepper – The Complete Pacific Jazz Small Group Recordings.
Great 5k walk today. Finished by 1pm. Nice conversation with one of the street construction foremen before I set out. The great Tony Williams in my earbuds.
5K walk at mid-day today. Beautiful. Had to take off my top layer! I saw other humans. Nice.
5K done lickety-split. Still listening to King Princess on repeat. Seems like my knee is holding up better lately.
Finished my walk. Nice in the mild temps. Music was one track of Curtis Amy – Mosaic Select Number 7 because my earbud batteries died straight off.
Apartment felt pretty empty after visiting with family on Thursday so I took my own advice and got out walking. Wind on the face. Stretching my hips. Felt a lot better afterwards.
Just as last night’s walk in St. Louis (O’Fallon,) was cold, dark, and rainy, such was tonight’s in Kansas City. I finished as the lightning began.
My right knee folded up as I approached my house but it is not a problem as I will simply unfold it again.
Walking on Thanksgiving Day.
In St. Louis, joined by my father, it rains on us. About to eat dinner together with my sister, my dad, and my brother Steve and his family.
Late evening walk by streetlight. Esbjörn Svensson Trio – From Gagarin’s Point of View
5K done. Checked out King Princess – Cheap Queen for the first time. Loved it.
Actually overdressed for my 5K. Beautiful out as the sun went down.
The Temptations – Anthology (1995)
Tonight on my walk I saw the usual mix of deer and wild turkeys but on the return leg I noticed two cats sitting by the walkway, their heads turning to follow me as I passed. When I got to the shortest distance from them, I realized that one of them was not a cat but rather an Opossum! Were they just hanging out together before I appeared?
Good 5K. Mild temps. Half in the light, half in the dark.
John Handy – Mosaic Select for accompaniment.
I could feel snow flakes or ice crystals on my face during my walk tonight. I couldn’t see them but it felt nice.
