While this might get XC skiing onto SportsCentre, brutal move by the Russian:

11 AM

Cross-country skiing 1:17:56 [3] 13.18 km (5:55 / km)

Horseshoe Day! Drove up to get out of TO and was a great day skiing on some of the trails I grew-up skiing on. Had to buy ski pass in advance (over $35 which is a lot!).

Waxing was easy: used very old training wax of Swix Green Extra (or Blue Special), neither of whic hare used anymore. Had good grip, was an easy day for wax.

Skied the North section first, could not really remember any of the trails other than there are some steep hills! Some of the downhills are pretty crazy fast, I would not want to bail on them.

Grooming was pretty good, although you could tell that it wasn't done by people that ski much. But not bad!
1 PM

Cross-country skiing 57:46 [3] 10.03 km (5:46 / km)

More classic: the West section (or the Medonte trails if you're old like me).

Super fun trails, these are the big grinding hills that I remember and some of the most open woods from NAOC in the 90s.
2 PM

Cross-country skiing 1:04:41 [3] 11.66 km (5:33 / km)

Time to skate! Decided to switch as the trails are way better for skating than I remember. Fun width of trails, not too big but wide enough to pass people. Horseshoes seems to only have inexperienced skiers so passing people was tricky today.

Running 45:00 [2]

Wee run.

Running 1:10:00 [2]

After work run in the valley, up past Brickworks and then south until the pedestrian bridge. About -4 but decent wind at times and lovely snow.

Think I'll head north skiing this weekend, but looks like Sunday will be the better day.

Rest day and listening to a podcast on the New Radicals.

Running 55:00 [2]

Run down by the river after a long, long day of work.


Emailing the Race Director of the Eco-Challenge, I owe my old Trailhead colleague a beer or two for the contact.

Running 40:00 [1]

Run down to pick-up my car from the shop, Sumac and King. I'm sure at one point would have been a super rough part of town.
