Sunday Feb 28 #

11 AM

Hiking 1:34:19 [0] 3.83 mi (24:37 / mi)
ahr:111 max:210

Trails seemed icy and muddy and not a great combo, so we walked around the Mount Hood golf course up in Melrose.

Added benefit, I put a worm in my brother-in-law's ear about "do you think the town would let you drive a sled and roller around?" Answer was "probably." He's on the City bike/ped committee and it's a small town, plus my sister runs with a Canadian friend who skis.

The only issue is the terrain would only allow for so much easy terrain, but there would be no problem putting an A climb in. Oh and, you know, snow, although several of the fairways held snow pretty well even today.
5 PM

Run 40:35 [1] 4.85 mi (8:22 / mi) +39m 8:10 / mi
ahr:178 max:195

Evening jogaroo.

Trail Run 1:51:55 [1] 6.57 mi (17:02 / mi) +514m 13:42 / mi
ahr:148 max:217

Melanie wanted to run until her legs were tired/hurting; I wanted to run until the snow changed to rain.

Both of these took place at about the same time, and right near the end of our first loop. Nice snow running before that on microspikes. Glad we got out early. (Word from Jackson was that it was great, but a bit of a longer drive / some people can't go to NH, glad I went to Dublin yesterday.)

Ski 2:52:24 [1] 27.1 mi (6:22 / mi) +1116m 5:38 / mi
ahr:87 max:138

Traffic? Some traffic on the way to Dublin. WTF.

But the skiing was superb. Hardpack, great skating, would have been fine klister weather. Was concerned about the 45˚ temperature on the way (didn't turn the car heat on until I got past Nashua, and my boots had nicely dried out) but then it dropped to 28 by the top of the hill, so no worries. Stayed on the competition side and was thinking about a Birkie-length ski. It was fast enough. The sunset was unreal (bright red sky through the trees) and then headlamp skiing, nice to forget that there's a pandemic with no one around. Four laps of everything, then a lap of just the race trails, then some loops up top, then finishing it out. World Cup conditions on the downhills: edge of control and fast.

Go lectured about Friday nights something something by someone who wishes they could leave the state of Massachusetts. Don't worry, mud season cometh.

Thursday Feb 25 #

5 PM

Run 35:11 [1] 4.09 mi (8:36 / mi) +26m 8:26 / mi
ahr:175 max:195

Shorter jogaroo. Busy week. Thought about Dublin but with the warm day it seemed like if it wasn't groomed it might be a shitshow. Confirmed with Kathy. Tomorrow.

Wednesday Feb 24 #

5 PM

Run 55:55 [1] 6.68 mi (8:22 / mi) +32m 8:15 / mi
ahr:180 max:204

Shorts jogaroo around the frozen river. Spring + winter.

7 PM

Ski 12:47 [1] 1.85 mi (6:55 / mi) +30m 6:35 / mi
ahr:105 max:128

Well they figured out how to add more to the course; in fact, it would be possible to draw a straight line that would go through the course 10 times. It was kind of fun to be in an intestine! It would have been more fun as a mass start with some of those corners, with more broken equipment. I don't think anyone has broken a pole yet this year.

Ski 24:17 [3] 5.4 mi (4:30 / mi) +90m 4:17 / mi
ahr:121 max:129

GPS did not work, and my legs kind of worked, 120km weekend something something. Definitely got faster during the race. Wound up behind Frank, so a bit slower than usual.

Ski 20:16 [1] 3.55 mi (5:43 / mi) +60m 5:25 / mi
ahr:113 max:136

Two chatty but fast cool down loops.
