My only activity today was riding my bike to the store for some bread, significant only because I finally put winter tires on my bike. I've had them for years and just never felt like I was going to ride anywhere in the winter so I never put them on. I've been missing out! It was super awesome to ride on all the icy, snowy surfaces and be all grippy. Recommended.

Running (ice) 2:20:09 intensity: (11 @0) + (1:50:19 @1) + (25:10 @2) + (4:15 @3) + (14 @4) 20.3 km (6:54 / km) +345m 6:22 / km
ahr:134 max:177 shoes: Georgia O (X-Talon 212)

Training #2, should have worn dobby shoes. :-(

Today I took the train to Movatn and ran home. Decided against dobbs because I figured it wouldn't be so different from last weekend. My plan was to do about 50% on trails and 50% on dirt roads but I changed my mind after suffering through a little more than a km of tip-toeing on ice and stepping into half-frozen marshes and streams, and then finally wiping out sideways and landing on the side of my knee. That hurt. A lot. After I stopped whimpering and limping I decided that if the roads were decent that I would stick to them the rest of the way, repetitive stress be damned.

I popped out on the road and was very sad to see that it was a sheet of ice. Thankfully there was generally a little strip of crusty snow on the very edges and it worked ok to run there. Slipped a few times but didn't fall again so that was a success. I was also a little worried I might be running a bit lopsided after the fall and that 18km of running lopsided might hurt me but I didn't feel anything funky, even at the end. We'll see how that works out for me.

Forgot to bring calories but felt quite energetic the whole way anyway. Must've been the pancakes. I suspect I will feel this run for the next couple of days.

I'm surprised there haven't been more people interested in the OUSA tech committee. Maybe people don't know? I know I'm not the only OUSA member whose day job is making computers do what you want them to do, and since when do orienteers shy away from sharing their opinions on things not directly related to finding controls in the woods?

8 AM

Running (snow) 35:21 intensity: (18 @0) + (13:22 @1) + (21:40 @2) + (1 @3) 6.36 km (5:33 / km)
ahr:145 max:159 shoes: Watapana (NB Zante3)

In to work, the little bit of snow on everything really made it seem wintry in the daylight.

I invited my coworkers to join me for the run in January but so far no takers. Normally I'd try to convince Sam to do it but I suspect she would not be game this time around.

Running (road w/pack) 35:52 intensity: (15 @0) + (14:00 @1) + (21:12 @2) + (25 @3) 6.3 km (5:42 / km) +13m 5:38 / km
ahr:145 max:168 shoes: Watapana (NB Zante3)

Fairly uncomfortable run to work, both because I had a fairly large bag (silly change in plans) and because it was snowing directly through my eyeballs and into my retinas.

Fun fact: the average first day of snow in Oslo is November 14th.
5 PM

Running (snow) 43:21 intensity: (7 @0) + (3:29 @1) + (34:46 @2) + (4:50 @3) + (9 @4) 6.42 km (6:45 / km) +204m 5:50 / km
ahr:154 max:176 shoes: Watapana (NB Zante3)

Back home. Dark but also quite wintry, more so the higher I went. Felt pretty good, doesn't hurt that I was unencumbered by baggage.

That's a first for running both directions of the commute while working at Fluido. Doesn't really take longer than public transportation so I might as well do it more often.
