AM/Lunch: 75' on the trainer (Whorl -1). 140W. HR ~128. 

HRM dropped out a few times. Started watching Hemlock Grove the other day. Sexy, weird, and scary, which is pretty much in my zone.

Megan and I listened to the updates via Zoom on the ongoing bargaining. It's clear the university doesn't care about special lecturers. No idea what the winter will bring with enrollments. I'd like this to be a bit more long term. 

PM: 4 miles w/ Megan and boys, averaged 10:07. HR 148.

Do you watch "Dark" (German)? That show is dark, weird, and scary. Not sexy though!

I haven't, but will make a note of it. Dark, weird, and scary is just fine with me!

"The Defeated" is one I have been viewing. Pretty dark also, yet interesting to watch.
