Here's what not being in grad school and falling and busting your face will do:

Feb 1-17, 2020:

21h of training, 5459m climb, 123 mi ski, 45 mi run.

Feb 1-28, 2019:

19h of training, 4490m climb, 136 mi ski, 22 mi run.

I'll add at absolute very least 31 miles to the ski total for this month. #BirkieFever

Ski 1:39:27 [1] 14.0 mi (7:06 / mi) +656m 6:12 / mi

Up to Dublin with my parents. I suggested Green's or Oak Hill, they countered with Windblown, I said eff Windblown and we compromised with Dublin. Which is always a good decision.

Conditions were superb. Well-packed, fast except in a few sunny areas, full coverage. Also I forgot my poles. Which might be good for my hands, but was pretty dump, but it was superhero skiing so pretty fast even no poles.

I told my parents they could probably ski down to the store and I would meet them there, but I'd check that it was groomed, so I set to cross the road and do so. Whee down the hill, and yup, ski to the store. Then back, also with no poles. Saw some Harvard skiers out enjoying the day. With poles.

Then back up, and then up the road to the view point, and down, and around the race course and the top bits and down, and then around the race course again. Caught one edge on one of the fun downhill turns and sort of slid down and skidded for a bit; like a speedskater crashing.

And these are basically the upcoming Birkie conditions and I am very okay with this!
