Monday Feb 1 #

7 AM

running (pavement) 18:02 [2] 2.01 km (8:57 / km)
shoes: Inov-8 Oroc 350

Down the hill to the lake, carrying skates and sail and a cushion, then out onto the lake to the point where the ice was good.

skating (kitewing) 40:34 [1] 10.2 km (3:59 / km)

Sailing in a light NE breeze, most of the time just enough to work, occasionally a bit fresher. Hands and feet were all getting cold, but I was wearing ski gloves so it wasn't as bad as it could have been.

skating (kitewing) 9:12 [1] 1.97 km (4:40 / km)

As I was taking off my skates, Michael Coulomb came along (the guy I talked to yesterday who had drilled test holes). He asked if I could sail a little more so he could take a picture. At that point I wass back to shoes and was swinging my arms around to warm up my fingers, but I decided to give it another brief go. While I was putting my skates back on, a little wind vortex came along and picked up the sail and the bag and started scooting them across the lake. He chased them down for me, and I was ready to go when he brought them back. That little dust devil was thefirst taste of some brisker wind, and I was able to get moving quite a bit faster. I didn't have the watch on for the first run, which I think may have been the fastest, but the next one heading SE appears to have hit 22+ mph. Zoooom!

hiking (pavement) 20:49 [2] 2.02 km (10:20 / km) +49m 9:13 / km

And back to the house. We'll see what happens, but that's the end of the local ice for at least a while, big snow coming tonight.
