Roller Ski Classic 2:00:00 [1] 18.05 mi (6:39 / mi)

Long roller ski day. Parked at the dog park, went up Sheeps Draw, extensively hit the 'burbs at the end, also hit the spur twice and the funplex, then returned to switch to skate. A couple of cows at the farm by the dog park were calving today. I didn't know there was a fall calving season, I thought it was only in the spring. I was lucky and got to see one cow eating her placenta. That's a bonus of living in Greeley, just get on the outskirts of town and you can see such things.

Roller ski skate 1:25:00 [1] 14.21 mi (5:59 / mi)

I switched to skate to make it less monotonous, both physically and mentally. Went out to Island Grove, a lap there, then back to the spur by east trail, then headed back and called it a day. Total of just about 52 km on the day.

Orienteering 25:00 [4] 3.04 mi (8:13 / mi)
ahr:172 max:187

Score-O at Westminster City Park as part of the RMOC annual meeting. A cyclo-X race was going one at the same time which cut out half of the controls, but it was still super fun. I really enjoyed using UsynligO, it is a million times better than handwriting codes or interpreting some stupid riddle for such "unsanctioned" (?) races. Ran well, but it was super easy, but I think I didn't pick the optimal route, but what I did was not bad. It was a good hard effort. Hams did get tight, but thankfully they did not get pulled, not sure what the problem is. Watched just a bit of the X race while doing a cool down.

Short lunch time ski around the Centennial lot to investigate interval potential, it could work I think.

Road Run 17:30 [1] 1.79 mi (9:47 / mi)

Warmup, run from funplex to end of Sheeps Draw. Saw an older couple walking a 100+ pound pig with a full coat of hair like it was a dog. Each to their own I guess, if I was roller skiing I'm sure they'd think I was freak.

Road Run 15:12 [4] 2.8 mi (5:26 / mi)

Started at the end of Sheeps Draw, then did 1.5 minute intervals x10 down the virtual t-trot course. I wanted to see if I was capable of running a reasonable race pace. I was really happy that it wasn't a problem at all. Walk back for about 1.5 minutes in between each. Paces were 5:28, 23, 22, 29, 40, 25, 20, 22, 27, 19. As I'm aiming for 5:40-5:45 pace, this was well above race pace. Despite how well the workout went, I know stringing it together for slightly over three miles is quite a bit more challenging.

Road Run 28:00 [1] 2.5 mi (11:12 / mi)
