Sunday Mar 24 #

9 AM

X-C Skiing warm up/down 15:00 [1] 1.4 km (10:43 / km)

Above freezing but very windy and gusty.

X-C Skiing race (Middle 2) 35:34 [4] 5.5 km (6:28 / km)

Raw with wind. Kept on jacket and was not hot. Trails icy.

Hard to get into course today. Navigated defensively to keep from plunging down icy chutes. Fair amount of double poling up narrow trails and then single sticking when they got steep. Last third of course cut across alpine trails in flat light.

No falls, but never cut loose so time was disappointing. Stayed at 13th of 20 something in class total time.
6 PM


Good week in northern Sweden. Good maps and trails. Only broke one ski and that was on the trip over.

Saturday Mar 23 #

10 AM

Hiking (Piteå ) 30:00 [1] 1.0 mi (30:00 / mi)

Climb to the top of the alpine ski area to watch the start and map exchanges of the WSOC Middle for the jury.

Later at the finish for the women’s race. Tove was struggling, but winning until she took a third fall coming down to the finish arena and ended 2nd by 10 sec.

12 PM

X-C Skiing warm up/down 16:00 [1] 2.0 km (8:00 / km)

X-C Skiing race (Piteå ) 35:43 [4] 5.82 km (6:08 / km)

World Masters Middle. Delayed start due to ice. Trails okay once the sun hit them.

Good race, no errors. Lots of double poling on narrow trails. Rolling flat terrain. Have to check splits to see where I lost time. Mostly just skiing speed. Ended up 13th of 20.

Thursday Mar 21 #

8 AM

X-C Skiing warm up/down 17:00 [2] 1.7 km (10:00 / km)

To start, flat on roads until the last 1/2 km. Then straight up a hill.

Slept well last night on my right side and ribs okay today.
9 AM

X-C Skiing (Pitea SkiO Masters) 1:16:14 [4] 10.09 km (7:33 / km) +118m 7:08 / km

Long course. Good start then into the narrow trails. Worked thru the first 10 junctions okay, then missed one coming off the top of a hill and got the next by mistake. Put me in a plummet to the bottom of the hill, bouncing off trees. Lost. Figured out the likely problem and worked over and up the hill, finding the control with 15 min lost.

Then back down the same initial trail to the bottom and off to number 3. Then more small trails with a little on a big one. Another hill section, better this time and a couple controls in a flat forested maze. Fast and fun.

Three legs just off big trails with a trivial dogleg. Then into the finish.

Snow was firm and fast just below freezing. Narrow tracks 42” wide with 10” berms. Small pine trees right next to trails, bounced my shoulder off maybe a dozen on the down hills.

2 PM

X-C Skiing (Pitea SkiO Masters) 1:15:22 [3] 7.74 km (9:44 / km) +79m 9:16 / km

Jury duty until SkiWOC finished. Then off to the model area.

Nice layout of narrow trails and main groomed ones. Solid surfaces for double poling. Easy rolling terrain.

Strained my L rib cage dragging the snowmobile around the turnaround last weekend after it bogged down in wet snow. Painful skiing and double poling and taking deep breaths. Hurt while skiing, see how it goes tomorrow. Did same thing to opposite side 2 weeks ago and it resolved after a week. At least when I woke up with chest pain last night I knew it was not unusually serious.

Monday Mar 18 #

9 AM

Road Running 27:52 [3] 2.15 mi (12:58 / mi) +68m 11:48 / mi

Short run before a travel day. Dirt road in fine mud season shape: 6-7 ruts, solid now due to overnight freeze.
Still no sap running.
