xc skiing 1:50:00 [3]

Lovin' these sunny days! Supposed to rain tomorrow so I went for another loop. Skied the first loop with Sandi and the second with Kristen.

Sore right knee on the second loop which I think is a result of a tight IT band. (same problem last year). Followed with a good stretch and the foam roller.

With Emily at the KOA. Another gorgeous day! A little icy but better than I expected.

snow shoe 1:05:00 [3] 4.4 km (14:46 / km)

I was meeting Lori for coffee today in Huntsville so we thought we'd strap on our snowshoes and try out the trails at Arrowhead provincial park.

Great trails and an absolutely gorgeous day out there with that blue, blue sky and bright sunshine. We took time for pictures and yakking. Did the Stubbs Falls trail and ,of course, checked out the falls. The mist had frozen on the trees which was beautiful!

hiking 30:00 [3]


Tonight we enjoyed the Banff Mountain Film festival at the Algonquin Theatre in Huntsville. About 24 of us met for dinner beforehand at The Cottage restaurant. Great company and wonderful stories about trips and adventures.

The festival was awesome. My favourite film was called Take a Seat: Dominic Gill's 32000 km ride on a tandem bike from the northern coast of Alaska to the southern tip of South America. Picking up random strangers along the way.
Great clips about skiing, biking whitewater kayaking and climbing & lots of crazy stuff that I'd never do!

Finally it's snowing today. Not much but enough to make it all clean and pretty. We still have a good base for snowshoeing (a couple of feet). But the ski trails are messy and icy. So this should make things better.

As a result of yesterday's strength work I am having trouble with stairs and getting in and out of my car, and pretty much sitting down or standing up. Not sure what I'll manage for activity tonight...

Pretty pleased with my results at the Thomass event yesterday. Although there were a couple of controls I could have done better. Next time!

biking 30:00 [2]

Longest 30 minutes of my life.

strength 34:00 [3]

Really worked up a sweat here.

Core 18 min.
Walking lunges 8 min.
3 sets of 40
Ball squats 8 min.
3 sets of 20

Realized I've been neglecting my strength workouts. Need to work glutes to balance strong hip flexors and work core. All that to prevent imbalances that trigger back and hip problems for me. (and my back/hip have been acting up lately).

Too bad that's what it takes to remind me. If only I had a little warning light that blinks "danger, danger!"

biking 1:02:18 [3] 19.27 km (3:14 / km)

Little unmotivated today.

orienteering (approx.) 1:12:00 [4]

Awaiting results.

Absolutely a great Thomass event at Forks of the Credit, put on by Caledon Navigators. Phatty designed a fun and challenging course.

Terrific food, especially the famous "Crash brownies"!
