(rest day)

Avalanche School. One hour prep. Four hours skinning and digging. Excellent course. No room for a run due to returning the equipment. Even though tomorrow is going to get a bag full of snow, a longish run as opposed to skiing powder is the priority. (Boss is in Vail, so no work). Tuesday looks ominous. High of -10C with snow. BRRRRR.

Running 33:20 [3] 7.12 km (4:41 / km) +42m 4:33 / km
ahr:144 max:163

Easy to steady after Avalanche School. Hike and bike trail on Valley Floor. Classroom for 4 hours. Skinning and digging for 3 up at Lizard Head. The study of snow is a degree subject apparently. It's very eye opening the dynamics of these monsters.

(rest day)

Avalanche School. 6 hours classroom....3 hours shoveling. Backcountry skiing doesn't really look like my bag all of a sudden. Silverton Avalanche School Instructors are both hilarious and spine chillingly overwhelming in the same breath. Learnt a ton today.
Had a beer with Father-in-Law tonight and happened to bump into two lads in the 506 (Band of Brothers fame). One went to Westpoint. Had a very interesting conversation. Good people.
Very nervous on my current amount of inactivity.

(rest day)

More traffic survey and regular stuff. -18C this morning. Very cold by two too. Very long day today. No running on the cards until Monday.
On a side note anyone been following the tiff taking place on the WUOC thread? Yurets could be the biggest Bellend I've ever encountered on the internet. Not that I've encountered many. While we're bragging about our coaches here's mine from when I was a Professional Wedgey Puller.
He had Biceps bigger than Putin's jelly belly on that calendar. It's amazing what pulling on underpants can do to arm muscles.
Truly incredible behaviour.

Work and Kendal's game at Ridgeway.
7 AM

Orienteering 47:35 [3] 2.05 km (23:16 / km) +189m 15:55 / km
ahr:115 max:151

I forgot about this. Had to do a traffic survey at rush hour above town. I was cold, so decided to yomp all over the hillside for an hour. Timed it. Not training though.

Work, work, work. Oh and very cold.

Monday Jan 27 #

Alpine Skiing 3:30:00 [3]

No work, more powder. Managed to ski (poorly) the whole of Mammoth without an air break. First time in 21 years of trying. Now to ski it well.
Out with Lewy and Chip who basically fell top to bottom of Kant-Mak-Em on their skates. They'll be suffering tomorrow.
Legs were heavy to start. Now they're dead. Over a foot fell today. I keep saying every powder day is the best.....but, seriously...this was the.....
