Cross-Country Skiing 5:00:00 [3] 10.0 mi (30:00 / mi) +500m 25:58 / mi
shoes: Rossignol Backcountry Skis

Backcountry skiing with Sam and Presto at Hope Valley! After some deliberation, Sam and I decided that as long as we A) did not use any public restrooms and B) only filled up the gas tank in the Bay Area, it would be ok to go to the mountains. We figured backcountry skiing was likely to involve the least actual contact with other human beings. In order to make this work, I had to severely limit my normal morning tea consumption, but miraculously we did make it all the way to the mountains without making a bathroom stop. Luckily the Prius does not need much gas, so only filling up the Bay Area was not really a challenge.

We were the only car at the trailhead when we arrived, although there were some ski tracks heading out up the mountain we were planning to ski up. Sadly for us (and Presto), the tracks ended after like half a mile, and from there on out we were breaking trail. For us this just meant a super tiring day. For Presto this meant a day spent postholing in our tracks, which I guess is also super tiring, but somehow also seems demoralizing...

Anyway, it was an absolutely gorgeous day to be outside with the sun shining on copious feet of glittering snow and awesome mountains to look at. We were hoping to make it to the top of the mountain today, but with all the trail breaking, that was not on the cards. We did make it to a really nice lookout, where we stopped for lunch, and Presto took a nap curled up on Sam's rain jacket. The trip down the mountain was WAY easier for me and Sam, but seemed about as challenging for Presto, so it took almost as long as the trip up. In good news from an epidemiological stand point, we saw no one on the trail, and only one other person who stayed more than 6 feet away from us at the trailhead. Awesome ski, and a successful day of social distancing!

Running 34:11 [3] 3.1 mi (11:02 / mi)
shoes: Brooks Running 22

Run after not-lab with Sam and Presto! Day three of shelter-in-place. Somehow today was much harder than previous days. I think it is because I was working on particularly tedious stuff today more than anything else. We barely made it out before dark because I really wanted to finish what I was working on so I wouldn't have to do it again tomorrow. We ran pretty slowly, but in good news I barely felt my hamstring at all tonight. Yay!

Strength 5:00 [3]

Normal abs.

Stretching 10:00 [3]

Normal stretching while chatting with my mom. I'm super tight from sitting all day. I'm going to need to get out for some extra walks since I'm not walking around lab or biking to and from work or even walking to meetings or walking to drink water or...

Running 34:29 [3] 3.5 mi (9:51 / mi)
shoes: Brooks Running 22

Running after not-lab with Presto! This is going to be a long 3 weeks... Anyway, I'm still healthy, so YAY! Presto and I had a very nice run up the hill. My right hamstring is still bothering a bit, so I took it nice and slow. We waved (from like 10 feet away) at a bunch of people, including a family that we saw out last night, which was nice. Good to get out!

Strength 5:00 [3]

Normal abs.

Stretching 10:00 [3]

Normal stretching. Tried to roll out my hamstring, but I don't think I was that successful.

Running 26:40 [3] 3.1 mi (8:36 / mi)
shoes: Brooks Running 22

Running with Sam and Presto after not-lab! We snuck out for a run just before sunset after our first day of shelter-in-place. We don't really have enough room for 2 people to have a comfortable working environment in our apartment, so we're going to have to trade off the desk+extra monitor periodically. At least Presto is totally excited about the fact that we'll be home all the time for a while :-).

Strength 5:00 [3]

Normal abs.

Stretching 10:00 [3]

Normal stretching. My right hamstring is still a bit sore from the weekend. Hopefully that goes away quickly!

Monday Mar 16 #


And...the Bay Area is under a shelter-in-place directive starting at midnight tonight until at least April 7. We spent a frantic afternoon and evening prepping the lab for a 3 week shutdown, since only COVID-19 research will be allowed to continue. Hopefully this gives all the testing centers time to get tests up and running in a high-throughput enough fashion that we can do some serious testing by the time the shelter-in-place is lifted. (Since the pandemic obviously won't be over by then...)

We're still allowed to go out for runs and to the grocery store, so I think I'll be fine, if a bit stir crazy. I'm SOOOO glad Tilden is close enough to run to!

Orienteering 1:49:50 [3] *** 9.4 mi (11:41 / mi)
104c shoes: Brooks Running 22

Stanford Sprint Camp with Presto! After some brief debate, Sam and I decided that it would be ok to go to Stanford and spend the day orienteering with a few people. There was basically no one on campus, since all the undergrads were sent home and it was drizzling, so not too many non-dog walkers were out and about. It was pretty nice for orienteering :-).

My watch doesn't really do splits. (It takes splits, but doesn't allow you to look at them.) So, this includes the entire time, distance, and controls for the one person relay, O-tervals, forking course, and score-O. I can't say I actually did any running at sprinting speed per se, but I did have a lot of fun running around on a fun, new (to me) map! There were a lot of fun, tricky levels sections. Presto really enjoyed it whenever Sam ran past, but then he would drag pretty badly once Sam was out of sight because he kept thinking Sam was behind us.

Super, super fun day! Thanks to Tori, Carlo, Riley, and Kevin for the courses and the map!
