yoga 40:00 [1]

snow shoe 1:37:00 [3]

Debbie, Cheryl and I braved the -31 windchill and did the trails near our house. Stopped to jump (read: slide down) some cliffs for thrills. Soooo cold we had to cover our faces on the ridges.

biking 45:06 intensity: (10:00 @2) + (25:00 @3) + (10:06 @4) 16.63 km (2:43 / km)


Today I spent a little time reflecting on 2009. Although it was not a racing year for me due to injuries, it turns out that there were more memorable outdoor adventures this year than any other.Quite a few with new friends others with long time buddies.

So I think the injury provided me with a new perspective on enjoying the outdoors at a non-competitive level which turned out to be quite rewarding.

This year my main goal is to train smart and thus be injury free (knock on wood), and to be able to enjoy the outdoors as often as possible both at a competitive level and just for the fun of it.

snow shoe (elapsed time) 50:00 [3]

At 7pm Birdybird and I strapped on our headlamps and donned our safety goggles for a apres diner snowshoe. There is a full moon but it was snowing too hard to really see it. The temp was about minus 1 so it was beautiful with the snow sticking to the trees, but unfortunately it also stuck to our snowshoes (something awful). Guess it's like skiing at these temperatures. So the time is elapsed due to the several times we had to knock the snow off. You couldn't feel the big balls much in the deep snow but the packed trails were a little wobbly.

All in all, a gorgeous night for an outdoor adventure!

snow shoe 2:20:00 [3]

Big loop at Hardy lake with Larry, Birdybird and Paula. Some of the trail was hard to find and we almost turned back. Larry was getting worried that we wouldn't make it out before dark.
