xc skiing (classic) 2:15:52 [2] 11.64 mi (11:40 / mi) +178m 11:09 / mi

Decided to classic ski again this morning, as I didn't want to take the chances that it would be as bad for skating as it was yesterday. With both Ross and I classic skiing we went about the same speed and stayed together. Slightly warmer temperatures (-18°C) and two layers of tights plus wind pants helped my legs not freeze.

Great weekend!

xc skiing (skate) 2:15:25 [1] 11.08 mi (12:13 / mi) +338m 11:10 / mi

Only one ski today in the morning. Everyone else was doing a run in the afternoon, but I didn't bring shoes and didn't really want to run. Went out on skate skis again this morning, but the conditions were horrible. I got no glide at all. I thought maybe it was me, but then later in the day I talked to others who tried to skate and they all agreed. I think it was just too cold.

xc skiing (skate) 2:00:00 [2]

Linné ski weekend in Orsa. Absolutely beautiful, and although it was cold, it wasn't too bad when skiing. The coldest part on my was the outside of my thighs - brrr..

In the morning I skate skied around the trails, trying to ski with Ross, but we go different speeds when he's on classic skis and I'm on skate skis.

xc skiing (classic) 1:30:00 [1]

Beautiful sunset classic ski with Ross. You can see the pictures here.

Heading up to Orsa for the Linné ski weekend! It's been a fantastically sunny week here in Uppsala and I've really enjoyed being outdoors. The bright blue skies, though, bring cold weather, and while it will be about -14°C here this weekend it's supposed to be closer to -24°C in Orsa. I don't know if I've ever been anywhere that cold before... we'll see how I can stand it!

Orienteering 1:01:25 5.04 mi (12:11 / mi) +57m 11:46 / mi

UOF Cup. I actually thought this went quite well, one of my best night-o's yet. At the same time, I got beat by everyone and brought up the rear. There were three loops, and my first and third loops were quite good, while I think I lost all my time on the second loop. I was never horribly lost, but I missed most of the controls, by 30s to 1'30" on the third one. Still, I had a lot of fun out there and really felt in control most of the time. I felt good about my race, until I saw my result. Overall, though, it's starting to feel more like day orienteering :)

Tidsdagbana. It was a beautiful night, but I was having trouble keeping up with everyone. I was following along ok, for the most part, but the pace felt quite fast for me. Others seemed to be ok, so maybe I'm just tired. Still always nice to be out running around with lots of company :)

trail run 25:28 [2] 2.74 mi (9:17 / mi) +12m 9:09 / mi

Running with Elisa before we did Rock Gympa in the apartment. She also has to work tonight, so we were able to motivate each other this morning.

lifting/strength (rock gympa) 47:00 [3]

Rock gympa with Elisa in the apartment since I have Swedish class tonight. The plank section felt the hardest today. I think it's because the mat I was using wasn't good. Elisa had a good idea though about borrowing one from the clubhouse, since no one uses them. Will do that for next week. Good that Elisa was there, or else I would have stopped early again ;)
