fpb sent me this photo, taken of me about half-way through the race (thanks for standing out in the wind, Frank!)

From Miscellaneous

Added: The Schenectady Gazette posted a whole bunch of pictures (including the one Glen included in his log). I'm here, towards the left in red top and black pants. :-) And I think I'm also here. This far back in the pack you had to wait in line to get up the narrow track.
9 AM

Running (paved) warm up/down 5:31 [2] 0.43 mi (12:41 / mi) +2m 12:30 / mi
shoes: Trail NB 706 9D # 2

Jogged around the parking lot, about 20 minutes before snowshoe race started. Someone mentioned there were more than 200 runners registered--impressive! Then took clothes to change into to leave in the school gymnasium, like many others. ;/)

Snowshoe race 1:10:17 [4] 4.17 mi (16:51 / mi) +52m 16:14 / mi
shoes: Dion 121 snowshoes

And we're off! First a jog around the field trying to spread runners out; but when you're slow like me you still end up behind a few. Time to be patient--trail will open up at some point. Temp was almost ideal, at around 28, not warm enough to melt the snow but warm enough to be comfortable. Settled in to a spot where I only switched places a few times with people and ended up not having to race anyone in at the finish. Didn't quite make 70 minutes. Counted 3 other 55-59 ahead of me (and a 63 year old who usually beats me).

165/202, a nice placing for me. I think there were a lot of newbie snowshoe racers out today. APer fpb was a course marshall and snapped my picture. CMorse did well, finishing 15th; Glen was 44th, about 15 min behind the leader (whereas I was more than twice the leader's time...I think I was about twice the woman leader's time...).

Glen figures the straight-line distance on my route at 4.9 km.

Navigation was yellow/orange level, and the map was familiar so I barely had to use my compass (which developed 4 bubbles due to the cold, by the way! Good thing I didn't need to rely on it.). I also pinned my e-punch to my jacket since I was wearing Gore-tex overmitts that didn't allow me to wear it as usual.
10 AM

Orienteering race (snowshoe) 1:38:19 [3] ***
spiked:13/14c shoes: Dion 121 snowshoes

Snowshoe score O at Moreau Lake. Possible 23 controls, 2-hour time limit. Snowshoes slow me down so I didn't figure on getting them all anyway (Glen did). Did a counterclockwise loop around the main lake. Forgot to carry FR from the car to start so went with just my Timex. Managed to turn it off between the 11th and 12th controls I visited and I didn't know what time-of-day I started, so hustled back in only picking up two more which were on the way. A lot of folks on skis for the ski-O (ESG qualifier), not all that many on snowshoes.

Temp on my car said 0F when we left home; 8F when we arrived at the park. By the time I finished it had started snowing lightly; the car thermometer said about 23 when we left. Managed to keep my feet and hands warm enough. Good clothing test for tomorrow's snowshoe race.

(rest day)

Two events this weekend, so nothing today.

Hope I don't freeze off any fingers or toes...

10 AM

Pilates class 55:00 [1]

Using weights.

Funny how a side plank on my good shoulder/side still bothers my other shoulder/neck. Oh well, no more side planks.
11 AM

Fitness equipment (erg) 5:08 [1]

Concept 2 PM 3, flywheel set on '4' -- 710m

Fitness equipment (quicksilver course) 27:29 [3]
ahr:126 max:138

6.33 mi

Fellow on the next bike complained that his biking 'history' had been lost. Guess mine had been too, but I'd only done this twice before. No big deal for me.

Shoveling (strength) 20:00 [1]

Shoveling a path up the drive and shoveling out the mailboxes at the end of the road. 0.3 mi round trip to the boxes. Snow was generally pretty light/fluffy; a little stiffer where it had been plowed, and a little more where they were replowing salted snow.

No time for the Y today--had to deliver my son's backpack halfway to college (he met me partway and we had lunch together). He remembered his laundry, pet rabbit and supplies, etc... but when he went looking for his computer, realized his backpack was still sitting at home.

Took the opportunity to shop at nearby Woodbury outlets for a few kitchen items. Maybe I'll try the core DVD again while snowed in tomorrow...

Exerc. Class 55:00 [1]

10-10-10 workout today. Legs not as tight today as I thought they might be considering how tired they were Saturday. But stretching felt good, especially hamstrings for some reason.
