Backcountry skiing 2:30:00 [1] 5.44 km (27:34 / km) +300m 21:37 / km

Noseeum Creek with Peter.
Just looking to get out for a walk in the gear and get used to everything again. Had an invite to ski Aemmer Couloir but figured that was a bit much to go for on the first day of the season. Another time, when I am in the swing of things.
Coverage was a bit thin on the ski in, which we expected. As per the guide book we stayed on the right side of the creek but in current conditions this sent us onto the rock pile which was slow going (with full coverage you probably just follow the creek for the easiest and quickest access, probably only about 45 minutes to the slope we skied). Aborted that, crossed the creek to the other side and had no difficulty getting through the forest.
Skied the north facing slope. About 15 cm on top of a supportive crust but the main concern was watching out for sharks just below the surface. I got away with barely a light scratch or two but it was stressful skiing so we decided against any more laps. Went back to the climber’s left of the creek again and followed it all the way back to the road without issue.
Now I feel like I will wait for enough coverage to be able to do good turns but it was nice to get this day under my belt before upcoming trips.

Core and upper

Thursday Nov 12 #

Running (Intervals ) 1:00:00 intensity: (20:00 @1) + (20:00 @2) + (5:00 @3) + (15:00 @4) 9.0 km (6:40 / km) +240m 5:53 / km
shoes: Hoka Stinson 5 ATR

Dirtbags interval workout
2 sets of 5 x 2 min with equal recovery, and 5 min between the two sets.
The turnout for the Dirtbag runs was getting big (50 people?) so we stopped the group workouts this week with local Covid numbers starting to climb a bit. This meant that my solo run sure wasn’t as exciting as previous weeks, but it makes sense.

Wednesday Nov 11 #

weight:66kg shoes: Hoka Stinson 5 ATR

Running (Trail) 1:00:00 [3] 9.0 km (6:40 / km) +245m 5:52 / km
rhr:48 weight:66kg shoes: Hoka Stinson 5 ATR

Horseshoe and G8 with the faster half of the mid-caff group. The studded Hokas did fine on the fresh snow even though they don’t have much tread.

Monday Nov 9 #

Running (hill) 1:00:00 [1] 8.0 km (7:30 / km) +280m 6:23 / km
shoes: Hoka Stinson 5 ATR

Gap hill from the CNC dirt lot to the gate and back with Myka, Carbon, Clinton and Annie.
Intentionally ran a nice easy pace (Maffetone would be proud; I was just reading about him again in a book I have borrowed from Myka) and stayed sociable with the rest of the group.
