Mountain Biking w/ Jess 2:10:00 [3] 21.1 km (6:10 / km)

Headed out mid-afternoon to enjoy the sunshine and the first above-freezing temps all week, and to escape the house cleaners, who typically show up at that time. Did the full loop. Still no cleaners. Did the loop in reverse. Got a text that the cleaners finally showed up right as we were finishing up. Jess chose a couple more old favorite trails and then we finally headed home, with just enough light to find our way through the woods.

Mountain Biking w/ Jess 1:15:00 [3] 10.0 km (7:30 / km)

As soon as we left the house, I knew it was a mistake. Is this what getting sick feels like, or am I just tired and suffering from over-use? Dragged our way through the usual loop, but with little energy. Scored a beautiful sunset, though! Jess seemed to know what was up (and was dragging a bit, herself) and took the shortest route home, even before I could suggest it.

Mountain Biking w/ Jess 1:15:00 [3] 11.8 km (6:21 / km)

Chilly dawn ride on the fattie. Tested some new ideas in the cold. Dog poop bag around right foot as makeshift vapor barrier liner - definitely warmer than the "control" left foot. Both big toes are pretty chilly now that I'm inside, though. Also tried some thick fleece gloves inside the Bar Mitts, instead of my usual full-fingered MTB gloves. Nice and warm, and wicked away moisture beautifully, but the leather palm pad really didn't like being wrapped around the grips, and most of my fingers went numb unless I make a conscious effort to ride with a loose grip.

Mountain Biking w/ Jess 1:15:00 [3] 11.0 km (6:49 / km)

Another night loop. Sat in the dark by the outflow from the beaver dam and enjoyed the night sky. Trails are hard packed and rolling fast. Really liking my new Redshift suspension seatpost - hopefully my spine appreciates the smoother ride!

XC Skiing 2:00:00 [3] 10.0 km (12:00 / km)

Just enough snow from last night's storm to ski at Delaney. Bluebird skies with temps rapidly climbing to 40s. Rolled the dice, didn't bring wax. Every time I hit a patch of sunlight in the woods, the softer snow would immediately clump up. Looped back after 30 minutes, drove home for glide wax, and things improved from there.
