Ski 1:39:00  12.6 mi (7:51 / mi) +370m 7:12 / mi
Up with parents to WVV; they had a friend along and wanted somewhere you could stay warm, so Dublin was out. But someone else driving, so I could do work in the back seat (and not just check weather models).
Started in town with most of the north end groomed but the trail up was super scratchy with hardpack with a dusting on top; terrible for kick. So I strugglefested up to the North End which had been PB groomed and ooh, nice hard track. I wound up leaving my classic boots at home so kicked in the skate boots, which was suboptimal (the new Salomon classic boots are comfy) but great kick. Kicked all the way up Livermore, then down Beanbender, which hadn't been groomed today but was fun. Had to yell at a couple of walkers to get out of my way but I hope I impressed them with my 210cm classic ski skillz.
Then back up Lower Snows, also older track, and then down in a fast fun track and back in for lunch. Also someone else made lunch. Also tickets were 2-for-1 and my dad paid. Yay!
Ski 41:47  6.0 mi (6:58 / mi) +244m 6:11 / mi
Afternoon ski was up the North End. Took my skis for the hardpack new skate lanes up Tripoli. Nice trip up, not too hard, then a fun trip down. Snow a little dirty from blowdowns but ready for The Storm, which Waterville is primed to get. Everything will be open for next week and some time thereafter.
Run 50:20  6.1 mi (8:15 / mi) +47m 8:04 / mi
Run mid-morning, because I was not feeling stairs (knees, congestion, stomach). Nice run. Also, people were skating on the pond in the Public Garden.
Ski 52:24  8.2 mi (6:23 / mi) +77m 6:13 / mi
Warm up before race. Untransformed manmade, which wasn't bad at all! Guns still going around over Mount Weston, so just a 1k loop, and a bike race course (not really my type of course). Harder skis felt fast on the snow (and cold powder skis still have storage wax) and I varied poles and no poles before the race. Wasn't feeling great; gastro wasn't too happy today. Temperature dropped pretty good, too.
Ski 13:35  3.1 mi (4:23 / mi) +30m 4:15 / mi
Exactly 1 km per lap, five laps. Went out in the second row, felt pretty good, but couldn't keep up with the front group. Combination of legs still tired from the weekend (I did ski 45k and 900m on Sunday, including some L3 at Oak Hill) and stomach. Fell back pretty hard laps 2-4, pulled it together on Lap 5, passed someone, and almost caught John. Would be nice to have a climb up Mount Weston to push.
