Adventure Bike (Mostly gravel) 1:57:00 [3] 34.4 km (17.6 kph)

I had to be in Tilbury for a brief work engagement this morning, so used that as a reason to go ride some back roads I haven't ridden on before. Still cold. Still windy. I stopped for a couple minutes as a huge dog loped across a field, hoping it wouldn't see me. It paused as it crossed the road ahead of me and looked at me, so I issued my sternest "Go Home". It went and sat by the nearby house, then only half heartedly jogged after me as I passed by (at a very swift pace.....). I got to use some of my lower gears as I ground away into the wind.
My toes were just getting chilly in the last half hour (neoprene shoe covers).

Adventure Bike (Mostly gravel) 56:00 [3] 18.6 km (19.9 kph)

I donned some key pieces of downhill ski apparel and did a backroads loop from the office right after work. Windy and cold, but only a minimal amount of ice on the roads.

XC Skiing 20:00 [3] 1.5 mi (4.5 mph)

Dawn comes late up here on overcast days....the headlamp came in handy. I just had to squeeze in a few more minutes on the skis on the way to the Timmins airport. A couple of piliated woodpeckers were squawking and flying around.

Hockey 30:00 [3]

I did not feel like a klutz the entire time I was on the ice tonight. I wish I knew the formula and could replicate it every week.

XC Skiing (Track set) 1:52:00 [3] 14.5 km (7.8 kph)

The Porcupine Ski Runners grooming team had worked most of the night as yesterday's mild weather and rain did rude things to the trails. They were just putting the equipment away when I got there, and I was the first one on the trails. Pretty peaceful. The fellows mentioned otter tracks (which I did see) and lynx prints too. I did see a set of prints that fit that description. And lots of snowshoe hare tracks. All firsts for me!
I did the yellow and the long, flat loppet loop. The sun was starting to come out from behind the snow clouds as I finished. A very nice ski. I would not have minded skiing on the inch or so of fresh snow we got last night, but the trails were now ready for a busy Sunday.
The recommended boot covers kept my feet cozy in the frosty conditions. Thanks, arthurd!

'Cross training' (Snowshoe) 1:18:00 [3] 4.7 km (16:36 / km)

Milton and I bundled up and set off on the snowshoe trails at Porcupine Ski Runners. Some good hills in there.
