snow shoe 1:30:00 [3]


Did the entire three loops with Cheryl. Gorgeous mild day which after having to cut the first loop was pretty warm. Hopefully it doesn't stay warm for too long or the pond loop with all its creeks and gullies will become inaccessible.

snow shoe 20:00 [1]


Night snowshoe, the small loop with my daughter Danielle. Because it was short, I think she enjoyed it. Plus it was very mild out.

Ofcourse ,me fumbling on Larry's big snowshoes was pretty entertaining for her.

biking 30:00 [3]


Finally set up the trainer! Hopefully biking doesn't aggravate that herniated disc. So far so good.
But I have to ask...why are the seats on road bikes so much more uncomfortable than the mountain bike ones? Generally you go for longer rides on the road bike, no?

stretching 10:00 [0]

xc skiing long 2:25:00 [4] 17.0 km (8:32 / km)


The plan was to do a longer distance at a slower pace. However, it appears I didn't stick to the lower pace. The trails weren't well groomed and I spent the whole time trying to improve my technique ( which I'm convinced sucks). Might benefit from some instruction....

Still, I was pleasantly surprised when I figured out the time and distance.

...a few parts ( right knee, both hip flexors) were complaining but recovery was good.

stretching 10:00 [0]


Have to make a conscious effort to stretch ...therefore better record it.

Looking forward to my hot tub tonight!


Realized my error with the time. Not such a fast ski after all. But it didn't seem to add up. Oh well...

Great snowshoe with Larry out on our trails. Suprised by the amount of snow that has fallen. Thus it was a good workout!

xc skiing 1:20:00 [1] 5.0 km (16:00 / km)


After two days of relative inactivity I was looking forward to getting back on my skis. Only, I had set up a ski date with an old friend. Turns out I now realize what an exertion level of one feels like. Eventhough I dressed warmer than I nomally would for a workout at -9, I still didn't wear enough for this pace.

On the plus side, today I finally believe that I'm not a slow skier!
