xc skiing 2:00:00 [2]

Went out skiing with some less experienced skiers which was good for me because I had to keep things low key. Lots of fun and very social. Gorgeous weather to boot!
We were out there about 3 1/2 hours but only skied about two. Usually this section takes me less than an hour.

Have to consider buying new boots because I got new blisters again. I'm positive the size is fine and I've tried all kinds of socks.

hiking 45:00 [2]

Very low intensity stuff today . Went to the chiropractor for treatment on hip/back thing. Feeling much better after treatment but have been advised to take it easy this weekend. sigh...

xc skiing 46:00 [3]

What a gorgeous sunny day! Because of that, I decided to start off on the Marsh trail to enjoy the sunshine. This year I guess they're grooming it (quite roughly) for skateskiing. Seeing as I usually only ski on groomed, trackset trails, that was a bit of a challenge. Twice, I simply fell right over!

The rest of the trails were groomed nicely for us classic skiers so it wasn't a problem.

Only downside? Blisters. Will have to try different socks although I recall the same problem last year. Will have to research...

Better do some stretching.


Found out today that there is a dietitian in our health centre and that it's covered by OHIP! So I've made arrangements to meet with her on Monday. Pretty excited!

Still, thanks Bash for recommending Crash (or is it PGB) to me. I might feel more accountable if I actually meet in person with someone.

swimming (lap swimming/pool) 50:00 [3] 1.5 km (33:20 / km)

Yeah! Nailed one of my goals. I don't think I'll be able to make Friday's spin class because I have to take Danielle to horseback riding. But maybe something will work out.

As for the running, I guess I'll have to try it with my grips. Can't find any Yak Trax in town.

xc skiing 35:00 intensity: (20:00 @3) + (15:00 @4)


By the time I found my shoes, skis and wax there wasn't much time left for a ski. Beautiful out on the trails. Too bad I struggle so much with this discipline.


Time to start tracking sleep.

Easy ride. Still have a sore hip and leg.

hiking 30:00 [2]

Easy day today due to sore hip and knee. Probably IT band.

Pretty cold out there today! Dare I say even colder than yesterday?


Not sure what all my goals are or will be but here are two I've decided on:

1 Try winter running this week and get at least one session of running (hopefully outdoors otherwise track) in per week.

2 One swimming session/week. I really enjoyed ,and was proud, of my 2k swims at Gull lake this past summer. Plus it will keep me from overtraining certain muscles.

3 Join the spin class Fridays at the Bike Shop. (guess that's 3)
