Trail Run 6:15:52 [1] 25.27 mi (14:52 / mi) +595m 13:52 / mi
ahr:127 max:216

Low Pemi Loop. Mel wanted to do this, weather looked good, extra hour of sleep, so we started around 8.

First 7 miles or so were great, running uphill, but then her knee went twang. Responsible adults would have said "hmm, maybe we should reassess and turn back" but then it got a bit better and we said "onwards!"

Onwards included a couple of rough river crossings, one which required taking our shoes off. The water was cold (there was snow on the Shoal Pond Trail). Then up the Shoal Pond Trail and her knee did not get better, but we had made our bed, and got to sleep in it. Decided not to split up (she could have hiked out the Zool trail) and struggle-bused down the Thoreau Falls Trail, which was lovely (even during a dry spell, Shoal Pond is wet). Her struggle busing was lifting her left leg over every log, mine was keeping warm given the pace. So I did a couple of sprints back and forth to keep warm.

Saw one guy on the TFT who confirmed the Thoreau Falls Bridge had been removed but said it was an easy rock hop. And it was … for me. I did it three times while Mel scouted (we have to work on her rock hopping skills) and eventually waded the river. At least it was reasonably good trail the rest of the way out, and between us we had two dry feet (mine). Weather held, and the first rain drops fell as we got to the parking lot. Snowing on the Kanc as we came home.

EOM report:

√ 50 hours logged. Blew it out of the water with 59. Thanks, 100 miler.
√ 200 miles running. 228. Thanks, 100 miler.
- 12km D+. 11325.
- Core. HA. Thanks, 100 miler.
- 100 miles of rollerskiing. 14, plus a couple skiing. Thanks, 100 miler, and weather, and wet leaves.

So November is here, and I should be in Maine the first half and then ?? the second half. So goals:

* 50 hours logged. I'm at 434 for the year, so 500 is a non-injured two months away.
* 128 miles run. This will leave me with 100 to go in December. Probably logging 25 tomorrow.
* 7.5 D+ should happen and push me over 100.
* Speed work and bounding (3x), 1000 PU/SUs.
* 100 miles rollerskiing. Or skiing.

Ski 37:12 [1] 2.66 mi (13:59 / mi) +40m 13:22 / mi
ahr:126 max:171


It was 20 overnight, so I figured the ground might freeze under the actual powder, and I was kind of right. But I got a later-than-planned start and parts weren't frozen and I should have gone back and forth where I started because once my skis iced up it got worse and then got clumpy, but every so often it felt like skiing when I somehow got rid of some of the ice. Saw a few other skiers out, too.

I have skied in October (2009 in Minnesota, on crust from an early storm, and 2011 in Maine) but I have never logged skiing in October. It's 2020, what are you going to do?

Woo run around the lake. 38 and spitting rain, which was pretty nice, and not too muddy on the first mile on the ATV trails, and then a nice run around the rest of the lake. My uncle is excited that the lake is run-aroundable, but if I do this again on a non-Sunday, lots of orange will be worn.
