XC Sking 1:02:00 [3]
shoes: Pursuit

5 min of loops and weaves in the parking lot. Then many minutes of no poles working on just shifting weight back and forth, then other minutes of adding back in the poles and maintaining efficiency, balance, and good technique.

I still feel slightly off.

Bike 57:00 [3]

Lift (Cross Sym) 7:00 [3]

Sunday Jan 13 #

XC Sking 1:55:00 [3]
shoes: V2 Aero XL - ver2

5 x FPH = 5 ( ~2 min / ~4 min)

Firstly, the North Texas Nordic Ski Team has upped the anti in the all around absurdity of their endeavor by opening their own merchandise shop at cafepress. Check it out! Anyone crazy enough to be reading my log, which resides in one of the dark, dusty and seldom visited corners of AP is certainly a "cool cowboy or cowgirl" and more than welcome to ski on the NTNST or jump on our support sleigh.

Secondly, today I was rolling on the Aero-ver2, which have the new wheels I installed a few weeks back. They spin faster than the Pursuit #2 wheels, but not extraordinarily so. When weighted my guess is the rolling resistance probably is such that they are not too far apart, maybe, I think. I didn't double check against the original Aero wheels which were kind of quick and I don't feel like reinstalling them to really compare. Nevertheless, I'm pretty sure the new wheels are slower. Thus, given that I was hitting times roughly equivalent to my those on the old wheels is pretty good I think.

Ok, on the the workout. 4C, cold and windy. Wasn't really feeling ready to go this morning and wasn't sure how much fun I was going to have.

rep) split, HR_max
1) 1:59.5, 160
2) 2:02.5, 163
3) 2:02.5, 165
4) 1:58.5, 167
5) 2:02.0, 167

Surprised myself by being under 2 on the first one. Kept at it and happy to find my pace was holding on the third. Sometimes I really drop off on the last and I want to try to avoid that so I really concentrated on good form an dwas happy to be under 2 again. Well, I guess I have to do another. Worked on upping the cadence a bit figuring my power might be waning. Legs started failing near the top of the 5th. Time to call it a day.

On my second some lady in an SUV who looked like she was dressed for church started slowing down. I though, uh oh, looks like she has something to say. Sure enough, the window rolled down and she started talking. I gasped, "Can't talk! God needs me to go up this hill hard 5 times! Let's meet later for tea!" I never did hear what she really said. (I really only managed to spit out "Can't talk now. Ack! ")

Rolled around on some hills and then an out and back at the lake after that.

Wilted later in the day. Bundled up and watched biathlon and xc-skiing on TV in the afternoon. Fingers crossed I don't dip too low into the fatigue hole.

Orienteering 1:20:00 [3]

NTOA event at James Ray. 6.7k in 74 min. I had a rather large mistake I guess due to misreading the terrain -- I thought a second gully was big enough to be the one I needed to cross and so started looking for the control too soon; turns out I had to go farther. Then a medium size mistake on a border line bingo control: come at it from the right direction and it isn't bad but come at it from every other direction and it is a search in dark green. Otherwise, if I accept that I will get some thorn scratches, the nav an James Ray is challenging and fun -- so many complicated gully systems.

It was 7C but gray and windy so it felt like is was closer to 0. Running was ok but before and after were very chilly.

Bike 46:00 [3]

I brought my mt bike and took a little tour of the area outside the camp. Some really big and impressive houses overlooking Lake Texoma have gone in. My digits got cold.

Thursday Jan 10 #

Bike 1:15:00 [3]

I set out to do a flat easy ride and ended up in the hills of our hold neighborhood. No one knows why this happened.

Lift (Cross Sym) 8:00 [3]

  • 50w, 0d: Waxing note: * Slow down a bit with the iron. Not so hot to burn the wax and base but enough so that the base warms up and the wax absorbs. If there is chipping when scrapping that means the wax was just sitting on top. Take my time, down the middle, down the sides, down the middle, etc. * Keep scrapers sharp. Then I can apply less pressure and have better control. To touch up be light, slow and patient. Mistakes always happen when being impatient.
