skate ski (school field) 35:00 
Similar to yesterday but actually a bit crustier. I felt like an arctic explorer trying to go from ice floe to ice floe. I had fun and it was fast skiing where there was slushpuppy snow still on an ice base.
skate ski (school field) 30:00 
Skiable on the field. It's not quite ice everywhere, but puddles on ice in spots, slush in spots, grass in places with ice bridges to snow-cone snow on a layer of ice. It was like skiing on wet ball bearings where it was good. So pretty fast but bumpy too. Strange but kind of fun.
weight room (strength/stability) 1:00:00 
Another very icy day here. Buses cancelled again, but it was worse for walkers. I know I couldn't have walked up Humberlea today without spikes - but they worked great :) Still not interested in running on greasy sidewalks, or roadsides, or slippery bumpy trails. So it was a weight room workout day.
Thumbs and elbows are screaming so I had to avoid things that needed a tight grip. Did a fair bit of core/balance stuff and quad strength.
swim 45:00  2.0 km (22:30 / km)
Ok- there's no such thing as bad weather, but there is dangerous footing. It was just treacherous today. I walked to school in my Spike Cross. I would not have been able to get up Humberlea otherwise. Good thing buses were cancelled, the walkers would never have made it in.
Tagged along when a colleague went for a swim workout. Had a preetty good swim considering I've been once since the summer.
100 free, 100 kick, 100 pull, 100 kick
200 drill/100 kick x 2
2 x 100 on 2 min., 100 kick
2 x 50 on 1 min. x 100 kick
2 x 100 IM/ 50 kick
50 pull/50 kick
Then I just wanted to nap instead of go back to an empty school and do marking.
skate ski (coaching) 2:00:00  12.0 km (10:00 / km)
Beauty day for a race. Not quite as fast as yesterday, sugary and starting to getting a bit skittery near the end but easy to fly along. The kids had a blast staying on their feet. There were some very good skiers at the Hepworth high school event today, several just a day after O'cup races at Highlands. You could sure tell who the club racers were. Wow, they looked awesome - especially on the fast snow.
My kids had a good day. The senior girls rocked the relay despite my starter getting one pole ripped out of her hand when a competitor stepped on it. She hardly missed a step and carried on without the pole to the top of the hill with some great speed until a senior boy on the side handed her one of his. Fun event - love the Sawmill trails and people. Both so nice :)
skate ski (Scenic Caves) 2:45:00  35.0 km (4:43 / km)
Guessing at the distance. It was pretty easy and fast. Goose wanted to try a bit of skiing today which was good news. He created blinders for his sunglasses and skied a few loops of the Northwest Passage out in the open. I skied with Hermes. She was "nervous" to ski with me, and thought I should ski for an hour first to get tired. Whatever. She skied merrily beside me chattering away, even going up steep hills. Didn't break a sweat, didn't miss a word. Sandbagger. She brought wicked oatmeal cookies for us too :). It was a lovely day of skiing in great conditions, in good company!
