Rollerski 47:21 [1] 7.07 mi (6:42 / mi) +147m 6:18 / mi
ahr:93 max:142

Out for a short ski before it rained. My dad gave me a ride to the bottom of the hill and I skied up the other side of the lake and back and then up the hill.

Which was fine but my L ankle is still swollen and the ski boot was not making it particularly happy and I could not use good technique. But it didn't rain at least?

Might be some biking for a while.

Birkie note (mostly for kensr and biggins):

Birkie will be spread over five days. Three days skate, two days classic. Regroomed each day (so much better surface with many fewer skiers). And the ability to ski multiple days.

So, you could skate the race one day and stride the race the next. Which doesn't seem like the stupidest thing ever.

Then there's the question of travel. I might take a couple of days and drive out. Who knows what things will look like in five months.

Bicycle 1:04:46 [1] 16.24 mi (3:59 / mi) +382m 3:43 / mi
ahr:114 max:154

Easy bike ride today. Felt pretty good. Reasonably-sized blister on my R heel means I probably won't be running for a couple of days yet. Also L ankle. But biking was fine. Although my L shoulder was wonky at times. Didn't go hard!

It is a gorgeous day out today, 60s, sunny, leaves coming down with lots of color. And at the end of the ride, I took a jump in the lake, which was colder, probably in the 55 range, so it was a quick swim.

Post-race … feeling better. Legs are not too DOMSy, the worst is where I kicked myself in the shin around mile 90, that's a bruise. And my back has a knot in it from the pack. Nothing too bad, and legs seem fine IT/achilles/etc-wise.

Looking at my yearly progress so far, since I'm not about to go out and run in the rain:

* 415 hours of training (most logged ever), only 1:05 per day the rest of the way out to crack 500.
* 1700 miles run, only 300 (3.8/day) to make it to 2000
* 88,000 m climbed, only 147/day to 100km (barring injury, this will most definitely happen; at this point in 2018, when I did make it to 100km, I needed ~360m/day)

So anyway, I did something stupid, I seem to have survived, and now I can look at ski season (whatever ski season brings).
