8 AM

Snow Shoveling 30:00 [1]

Digging out cars, scraping, making a path to woodshed. We have 4 - 8 inches of snow. Top layer has dried out over night. Cold (23 F).
10 AM

XC Skiing 1:10:00 [2] 4.5 mi (15:33 / mi) +70m 14:50 / mi
shoes: Karhu BC Tele Skis

Fantastic conditions for skiing: good kick, good glide wit totally transformed snow. No tracks needed as the base had solidified. Great start of the season. I had to stop in places to bang and shake the bent down trees, which turned me into a snowman. Slow but steady skiing otherwise using the tele boards. Left boot delaminated from my attempt at teleturning down to the solar pit. Too bad! Hopefully I can glue them back together.
12 PM

Snow Shoveling 1:00:00 [2]

Raking the solar panels and shoveling the fallen snow from porch. As exhilarating as snow is for me, it can get tiring...

Road Running 21:00 [2] 1.9 mi (11:03 / mi) +20m 10:42 / mi
shoes: New Balance MT 910 sz 9

Running from the Garage to the office (8 am) and back at 5:30 pm). It's snowing on and off. Nice to run on a 1/2 inch of soft snow. Some puddles forming though. Runs were short enough to avoid getting soaked.

Run to work, early b/c of phone interview with applicants. Received a couple of inches of snow over night. Wet and splashy along the road. Took the detour down the dam which has a muddy section due to the construction. Grr

Road Running 19:55 [3] 2.33 mi (8:33 / mi) +30m 8:13 / mi
shoes: On Cloud grey-black

Running home late (again due to phone interviews). Road quiet. Good energy - stepped into the snow now and then to avoid cars. All nice and runnable.

Orienteering race 1:51:16 [3] *** 9.78 mi (11:23 / mi) +280m 10:27 / mi
spiked:21/24c shoes: VJ Falcon w spikes

Blue Hills Traverse. 13.1k Nice course set by Jeff. Started out at Pankopoag and traversed over by Houghton's Pond to Blue Hills West. Both maps were 1:10k which I liked. This was one of the faster courses with less climb. I have not orienteered at 8.5 minutes per k in quite a while.

I started out a bit slow, but eventually made my way to about the first 10 or so by # 1. I was closely behind Jon to 2, leaving a group of 3-4 behind. I lost a minute tying a shoe on the way to 3, choosing the S around route. I then caught up with Jimmy and we stayed together for the longest time.

A 1 minute mistake at 8 - we came to the boulder that was on the circle, and then overran to the trail a bit too far E. We went straight 8 -9, had a bit of a hesitation at 10, and so eventually a group of about 6 were catching up as we crossed over to the spectator loop. Now that was interesting - I slurped my goo on the way before the water stop, and simply sprinted through 13 and 14 and found myself in front going E to 15. Looked like a bunch of 8 people now spread up to 1/5 of a mile behind me.

Approaching 15, Alex closed in on Jimmy and I, but then Jimmy and I left all behind to 16. Here we caught up with Jon, and then I led into 18, where I saw Ari and Wyatt further ahead. I went straight through to 19, taking advantage of Wyatt who led me to it. Others went around and were slower. Then with Wyatt to 20 and eventually also with Ari to 21, which I led taking a gamble, but found it in the "area that I used to hate".

Out of 21 left leg hamstring cramping set it for a bit after all this uphill hopping. So I had to shake it off by slowing down, Wyatt and Ari forged ahead. Goal now was not to let any of the group behind me catching up. 22 was easy but uphill, so still a bit cramping. I choose to go N downhill to the trail, which I could run fast. I came a bit to low and overshot 23, but eventually saw the control and saw Ari above it circling around. I took it as quickly as I could hoping Ari would not see me. He didn't. Then, carefree and still fast running to 24 and in.

A lot of fun. I had energy to the end, and kept my place which ended up being 6th overall.

Snow Shoveling 30:00 [1]

A bit of roof raking and then catapulting it off the porch. Good arm and upper body workout. Before that cutting wood for 3 hours, but I had assistants (UNH rowers) who did all the lifting and transporting, so all I had to do is wave the (very light electric!) chainsaw back and forth, so not worth (word) logging it.

12 PM

Road Running 18:47 [3] 2.32 mi (8:06 / mi) +20m 7:53 / mi
shoes: On Cloudflow dark grey

Snow! 7 inches and water saturated. Not much to play in. So I ran to work on the road, but cut down ontrail to the dam. I was the first one on the trail which is very steep. Fun to make tracks, and I had good traction by sinking in good. Shoes and socks soaked by the end.
4 PM

Road Running 29:38 [3] 3.68 mi (8:03 / mi) +35m 7:49 / mi
shoes: On Cloudflow dark grey

Running home via fish pick up. Just getting dark as I started at 4:30. I Put my headlamp on before leaving the sidewalk portion. Quite a bit of traffic. I ran with the traffic flow (as usual) but kept an eye of what was coming. I moved into the snow a couple times to let cars go by. Otherwise pleasant.
