Snow Shoveling 10:00 [1]

About 15 inches on the ground this morning. Also did some walking around the neighborhood. Difficult going outside of the few tracks. Got up to Wheaton Plaza, and found the supermarket open. Snow continues for the next 18 hours, and the total seems likely to be 2 feet or more.

Snowshoeing 40:00 [3] 1.4 mi (28:34 / mi)

Addie got into the Sherpas and set off just before dusk. After some shoveling I strapped on the ancient bearpaw snowshoes and followed her tracks. I finally caught her after she stopped to talk to the neighbors on Drumm. I had to improvise one strap on the bearpaws, but the rest of the bindings and the shoes themselves are in good shape. My dad bought them at L.L. Bean, probably about 60 years ago. There was another, smaller pair, but I don't know what happened to them.

Road running 34:24 [3] 3.8 mi (9:03 / mi)
shoes: Adrenaline 16

Drumm loop, with a little snow on the ground from last night's flurries. The roads were clear and crunchy with salt.

Core strength 12:00 [3]

A challenge-inspired workout, after the run.

Core strength 12:00 [3]

25 pushups, 2-min plank, 2-min wall sit, 50 squats, 2x20 reverse lunges, 30 figure-8s. Can't say it's the D.C. because it has left me behind. This workout is probably sustainable.

Orienteering 53:03 [5] 5.2 km (10:12 / km) +175m 8:44 / km
shoes: IceBug Olx 4

GNC Day 2 Green. Today was much better. The vegetation wasn't an issue, and the trails were more trustworthy. Navigation wasn't too hard. I made a big mistake on the way to 2, crossing the road loop to the right of the line, and going down the second road I crossed, which wasn't the right one. Backed up, crossed over to the right road, and proceeded to run to the end of the road. Finally got the attack right, probably 3:00 lost. Some really good legs after that, running well, and a good time overall.

First overall in M60+ by a couple of minutes.
