Ooh, Greens! Had about 7 hours between thing to ski, and Greens did not disappoint. A few thin sections, but otherwise really quite nice grooming on corn snow over a solid base. Hopefully they can get some snow over it. Just over 2h, which is exactly what I wanted, a bit of adventure skiing, but mostly just fast skating. Felt really good, hopefully that holds through the next 6 days.

6 days to Birkie!

Moar bikeshare score-o. Five point rides out of Harvard. One sprint to get back to station in time.

Run 1:19:53 [1] 8.45 mi (9:27 / mi) +24m 9:22 / mi
ahr:180 max:208

Skiing seemed suboptimal and there was traffic to the Blue Hills, so Elena and I went on a nice easy run around the river. Nice running weather.

We found a wallet belonging to a NSHS student along the way. Later we were out we saw a bunch of high school-looking students near Harvard and inquired and it was a speech and debate tournament. A guy looked up the student and she is part of the tournament. So tomorrow we are dropping the wallet off for her.

Bikeshare Score-O 35:12 [1] 4.23 mi (8:19 / mi) +7m 8:17 / mi
ahr:175 max:209

Another fun day of Bikeshare Score-O. Got some good running in and got some points. Unfortunately the "map" is a screen so it's hard to look at it while running and not dropping it or tripping; it turns out, the screen is a very expensive map. The problem is that the map updates, so it really needs to be on the screen.

So the Somerville Project is on temporary hold since BlueBikes has a highly-gamified promo going on for the next four weeks. For their (yeah, ironic) you get things for certain numbers of rides. The big deal is at 65 rides you get a free annual pass, which is worth more than $100, so now each ride is worth more than $1.50. But it has to be 5 minutes long.

So now Bikeshare Score-O is an optimization game between finding sprints between stations with high point values and which also have a 5ish minute ride in between.

Luckily it's about a five minute run from Kendall Square's point sink to generating locations, so I was able to run/bike down there, run around to some stations, move some bikes, and run back. Weather good for it, but my hands were chilly by the end. Got 6 rides in, and about 25 points. Lots of rides where I'd have to wait a bit for my phone to show 5m, and then dock the bike. Kind of fun.

Running felt okay. A little heartburn from, you know, messing up my GI tract the other day.

Feeling way better … if there was good snow at Weston I'd go. But there is not.

Monday Feb 13 #


Time bomb went kaboom at 2130 last night. Turns out all the stuff people were doing in March 2020? That was the right thing to do … for noro.


I have now eaten about 70 calories in 36 hours. I guess the timing could have been a lot worse! Not sure if I'll make it to Worlds tomorrow (or if there will be snow for Worlds).
