Saturday Feb 8 #

9 AM

XC classic race (Winona Forest) 2:48:55 [3] 25.0 km (6:45 / km) +205m 6:29 / km

Temperature? like 6 degrees Fahrenheit.
It went shockingly well compared to how I was afraid it would go. Now just gotta do twice as much next weeK! Both days, too! yay, so excited...

No really though, I enjoyed it. Yeah, the time is pretty slow and I definitely could have done better. But this was my first ski race that was this long, so I wanted to conserve my energy and be careful.
Am I making excuses for why I was slow? maybe.
It was fun, I enjoyed being on my own and not having anyone on my back who always makes me stress about "what am I doing wrong this time" (ehm ehm dad)
I really enjoyed being in my own head and literally trying to think about the skiing as little as possible (I didn't want to know what was hurting and how much). I was doing math in my head (mostly calculating my pace estimates for the race) and stuff like that. It was nice.

Weight Training (Deadlift) 27:00 [2]

3 sets of 10x 85lb deadlift
3 sets of 20x hip bridges
3 sets of 10x 10lb (per arm) bicep curl and press
3 sets of 1 min on/1 min off band pulls (double poling thing) (w/ green band)
8 mins of throwing around an 8.8 lb ball (4kg) with friends because I didn't know what else to do.

I was basically trying everything in my power to still work out but avoid being sore tomorrow because the Winona Forest XC ski race is going to kick my butt.
