Classic Ski 19:00 [1] 2.0 mi (9:30 / mi)

Just started out easy, not knowing what the rest of the ski would be like.

Classic Ski 1:24:00 [3] 10.78 mi (7:48 / mi)
ahr:148 max:172

Ran into 3rd@Birkie, a.k.a. "the terminator." Don't see her much now-a-days since she stopped racing. She was skating of course, I told her I'd keep up just the same, which I did, barely, for a lap and a half. She was skiing legs only towards the end so I could keep up. When I literally had enough, she went off to ski more and I went back to the car to get food and switch to skate.

Skate Ski 1:20:00 [1] 9.86 mi (8:07 / mi)

After food and switching gear, went out again, was tired and it took a while to warm up with the wind. It was fun to skate as I do it so little now a days, it still worked my tired arms well, avoided most of the hills, was too beat for that.

Classic Ski 3:02:00 [3] 21.37 mi (8:31 / mi)
ahr:146 max:170

Busy day, I finally found the time to get my new road bike, which came in last week. So given I had to go down to the hive for that, figured I'd ski at "the gold," which was what it usually is, super high winds, nightmare parking, and insane ski pass prices ($36). Despite that, managed to put in a good ski. Used the intelligrips and basically went hard right from the start. Pushed any easy to steep uphill hard, everything else was easy for recovery. Felt good, but by the end I was sick of pushing the drag of the skis. Coverage was good, just a few bare spots, and unfortunately the Jenny Creek trail was not open. I keep thinking I'll go 3.5 hours, but by 3 I've always had enough (hit all the trails multiple times and quite tired).


The women who did the bike fitting wondered if I was student or "teacher" at UNC. I thought, what student could afford this bike? I could only afford it because of insurance money and, its taken now close to 12 years, but I'm finally earning reasonable money for my monastic lifestyle (simple, largely solitary, and frugal). If I lived like a normal U.S. citizen, I couldn't afford the bike without going into debt... But then I remembered I was in the hive, I bet there's plenty of CU students who do have such bikes. At any rate, the gray in my "beard" should have been a hint that I'm more likely faculty than student. If anyone cares, the bike is a Felt FR3 Disc, everyone in the shop like it a lot (of course they are going to be positive) and its insanely light. Maybe I can find an ice free road this next week to give a try.

Bike Trainer 30:00 [1]

Second night in a row I didn't sleep well and didn't feel the best this evening, slight headache. So only a short ride. Watched the men's 15k classic individual from Planica.

Hike 10:00 [3] 0.5 mi (20:00 / mi)

From Gunter.

Bike Trainer 1:00:00 [1]

Planica W 10k classic interval. Tendon on left knee cap hurt for about 25 min. Then it quickly become ok. Didn't sleep the best and crap at work kept me from going to the Jack today.

Exer-Genie 16:00 [1]


Still can't find results from Saturday. But I forgot to mention the best part of the day. Who else showed up for the first bus to DTR? The women getting the Redlines at BNS the day I got the Intelligrips. She had brand new Salomons on (prolink, likely were top of the line) on at the bus stop 2 hours before the start. Guess she went back to BNS to get those after she got the Redlines. I could see she had essentially no kick on her skis yet, hope she found someway to get kick on her skis and that she had fun.
