2 PM

Road Running 35:14 [2] 4.49 mi (7:51 / mi) +30m 7:41 / mi
shoes: Altra, Escalante

Rehab Road Running - easy relaxed at all times; staying at level 2. Did a good warm-up (back strength, calves and leg stretching, stair jogging). Hope this works and I can eventually get my mileage up. No immediate repercussions, so hopefully good to go.
(Around the block with added loops at Carriage, then Figure 8 Griffith to Surrey to Griffith, then home clockwise).

11 AM

Classic Skiing 55:00 [2] 4.6 mi (11:57 / mi) +350m 9:40 / mi
shoes: Fisher Nordic Cruising 164

Last day at GGT. 10 F and winds howling. Cold!!! but sunny and gorgeus scenery - I photo day but did not have the courage to take my 3 layered glove/mittens off, so left phone at the lodge. Slow especially with waxless skis, but just wanted to be out and a few miles in.
12 PM

Classic Skiing 1:10:00 [2] 2.45 mi (28:34 / mi) +130m 24:32 / mi
shoes: Fisher Nordic Cruising 164

Round two w. Nancy. Slow moving and chatting. Eventually my extremities got cold, so I sprinted up side hills and back down to just get a little heat flowing esp into my fingers. That was is for the day - scraped original plan of also some skate skiing. Headed back home with a nice stop at Angelines for soup in Jackson. Jackson was "balmy" compared to GGT. Somehow the northerly winds did not make it down to the valley.

12 PM

Swimming 25:00 [2]

Hanging out at the swimming pool while the snowflakes are falling. I did some "laps" in the diagonal to overcome the small dimensions. Mostly breast stroke - forgot to bring goggles. Then later Nancy joined me - so I did water-jogging. Get that spa feeling!
3 PM

Classic Skiing 1:30:00 [2] 7.32 mi (12:18 / mi) +200m 11:20 / mi
shoes: Fisher Nordic Cruising 164

At GGTrails. Staying at the Glen House, so it is skiing from the doorsteps, just like home. The snow has just subsided - 8 inches of it. Not much groomed (apparently the groomer was clumping the snow off the surface, so just a bit of snowmobile packing). Classic was fine, a bit unstable in places, slow, but beautiful. A few tracks from other folks, incl. Sue W. the director - I chatted with her about Ski-O - they have permanent controls for the kids program with critter pictures on them - similar to our string-O controls. Northerly wind started to pick up towards the end with a few white-outs in the woods, and drifting in the open. Glad to be up here.

1 PM

XC Skiing 1:19:34 [2] 5.33 mi (14:56 / mi) +100m 14:06 / mi
shoes: Fisher Nordic Cruising 164

JSTF: Easy skiing the Boggy Brook Trail. Fantastic conditions against all expectations. With Nancy.
3 PM

Skate Skiing 1:05:04 [3] 7.93 mi (8:12 / mi) +235m 7:31 / mi
shoes: Rossi Xium Skate

Then Solo up the Wildcat Valley to Quail and EST and back. Then further up to Orchard and back. Schuss down and an out and back on the Boggy Brook and back to parking where Nancy just arrived to pick me up. Fantastic skiing. Seems to be the only place in NH that has reasonable conditions and/or is open for skiing. A bit of a storm coming tonight. Staying at the Glen House. Hope to be able to ski GGT tomorrow.

4 PM

Skate Skiing 35:28 [2] 3.15 mi (11:16 / mi) +45m 10:47 / mi
shoes: Fisher Revolutions

Seeing yesterday that about 2/3 of the woods have some kind of snow cover. Where there is snow, it is a solid pack. So skiing I did on whatever patches were left. This was moderately pleasant: Bumpy where it had been postholed out, but smooth in quite a few spots. More sticks and logs to step over than before. Now waiting for more snow this weekend.

Monday Jan 13 #

2 PM

Trail running 45:03 [2] 3.99 mi (11:17 / mi) +25m 11:05 / mi
shoes: Topo MT3

A cautious attempt to see if tendinitis/osis will be aggravated. And it was.
About 70% on snowpack, the rest on road shoulder or snow-free woods.
Around W Foss Farm, to Surrey and back on Packers.

3 PM

Mt Biking 59:05 [2] 11.53 mi (5:07 / mi) +133m 4:57 / mi

Around the "big" block: Wiswall - Lee Hook to Lee, 155a to 155 and return home via Garrity. I stopped at Maud Jones, and slowly jogged the forest loop (~ 1 mile : Mile 10. ~ 12 minutes, about 2/3 with snow cover). Legs felt strong for biking - is it the skate skiing?
