Trapped in San Diego – 60 minutes in the Fitness Center

So, my flight to Boston last night was cancelled because of winter storm “Niko”.  A huge Nor’easter that is pummeling the northeastern United States.

(side note:  One of the main online weather services in the US, has taken to naming major storms, not just hurricanes.  I like it.  It solves a referencing problem and it’s fun to talk about storms by name…back to the narrative)

So, I am stuck in San Diego until my rescheduled depart, tonight around 9pm.  I had a conference call at 6am, so I was unable to go to Crossfit Del Mar today.  I was relegated to using the hotel fitness center.

I decided to just do 60 minutes of aerobic maintenance.

  • 30 minutes treadmill (15% grade, 3.1mph…slowed to 3.0 at about 20′, and then 2.9 at 26′ to keep HR below 145)
  • 30 minutes on the elliptical (rolling hills, level 14 of 25), HR cap < 155.



The treadmill felt like hard work, the elliptical felt easier, but my HR was a bit higher.

Tomorrow:  I arrive (hopefully) around 8 am.  I plan to work from home and get in a marathon plan workout.

    There’s an unnamed Alberta Clipper going through here right now and as usual, we have way too many aircraft to deal with in the poor conditions.
    Its better for all concerned to give up on the day like they did yesterday in Boston (just long haul flights for the most part) and have all your crews and aircraft in the right place, rather than stranded all over the place. Makes recovery to a normal schedule much quicker. Unfortunately our airport and airlines think that snow has no effect on operations. Idiots.
