hiking (Yellowknife) 2:25:00  11.5 km (12:37 / km)
Goose and I headed out on a cross-town exploration. We took streets to "Tin Can Hill' about 3 km across town from us. Then we hiked the trails up there and saw views of Great Slave Lake and the ice road. We hiked back down and into "Old Town". We headed out onto the lake to see the Snow King Castle. Pretty cool Sadly all the events in it have been cancelled due to
Covid:(. We made our way back through town to Frame Lake and home. Despite a bitter east wind off the lake it was a good walk. After 62 straight days of skiing daily since Jan.1 I chose not to go out again after this outing. I was too chilled.
hiking (Yellowknife) 45:00  4.0 km (11:15 / km)
My early morning outing that I've been doing daily is getting lighter and it was not bitter cold today. I hiked/jogged on the treed, hilly trail part way around the lake. Gorgeous day break again:)

back/ab ex., stretching - between episodes of "The Crown"
skate ski (Yellowknife) 50:00  8.0 km (6:15 / km)
Since it "warmed" up to -19 I tried skating. Still a strength workout of relentless one-skating but it was a change from uninterrupted classic striding anyway. And it was bright and sunny again so it was great to get outside:)
classic ski (Yellowknife) 1:40:00  12.5 km (8:00 / km)
Balmy today! Got up to -19 so we headed out for a ski. Goose went off at his pace which I couldn't keep. At the far end of the lake I headed off to check out the access trail to the highway and over to the xc ski club that Bent's brother Allan had told us about. It also led to another multi-use trail through the trees so I went exploring. It was nice to be on a different trail, in the trees, with some small hills, and no wind.
hiking (Frame Lake) 1:10:00  8.0 km (8:45 / km)
Happy St. David's Day! Had intended to just go fro my regular morning walk out to the lake and along the trail a bit but it was so much warmer this morning than the weekend and I felt the urge to go up some hills. So jogged and hiked on the trail above the lake. I felt good to do some terrain. Jogging in my parka, Steggers and big mitts was a bit hot even at -25.

planks, balances, stretching
classic ski (Yellowknife) 45:00  6.5 km (6:55 / km)
Another lap around Frame Lake. It was the first cloudy day but the sun came out while we skied. NOt as cold but the snow was still slow.
classic ski (Yellowknife) 42:00  6.5 km (6:28 / km)
Another frigid day but a bit less wind than yesterday so it didn't feel quite so biting at -32 this afternoon. Still clear and bright. The only thing that really bothers me is that I can't put my sunglasses on with all the face coverings and not fog up so I'm a it blinded when I face the sun and it's reflecting off the snow as well. Such hardship.
classic ski (Yellowknife) 48:00  6.5 km (7:23 / km)
Coldest day for us yet, especially because there was a bit of a NE wind but still crystal clear and bright. Endured the first km and then felt much warmer.
