snow shoe (race) 2:40:00 [4] 12.5 km (12:48 / km)

Lori and I raced the Into The White snowshoe race in Mattawa.

Great venue. Second year and they more than doubled the number of participants. Lori and I stuck together and ran at least a third of it. Some tough hills, but very proud of how well we did.

Gorgeous day!


Shoulder is feeling pretty good today. I think skipping cardio kick and skiing this week is helping.

snow shoe 1:15:00 [3]

Night time snowshoe with Emily and Robert on the Hahne Farm trail. Bitterly cold but still nice to squeeze one in.

So, my Achilles tendon seems to be just about healed. Very exciting. I was worried it would plague me in Spain.

However, my shoulder seems to be getting worse. So we've started some active release and laser treatments on it. Plus icing and ibuprophen I guess. Using my blinker is painful right now so I better get on top of it.

yoga 55:40 [2]

Practicing today's routine one more time before I have to teach it.

The focus today: Hanumanasana, Monkey God Pose
or, in other words, the splits. Definitely a challenge for me that I will be working towards for a long time , if not forever ;)

yoga 1:00:00 [2]

Preparing tomorrow's class.
Funny how much better you feel after doing yoga, yet it often is at the bottom of our priorities.

snow shoe 52:00 intensity: (32:00 @2) + (20:00 @4) 4.3 km (12:06 / km)

Hahne Farm trail. Ran about a third of it.

Even though a trail has been cut (mostly by Sandi and I on Saturday), it is not hard packed. It is soft , granular, like running on the beach. When your foot hits the edge of the trail, it slips off and down into the deep stuff at least a foot. Little hard on the knees.

It's an out and back trail. so I measured the split time 27/25 and listened to tunes on the way back.

cardio (step class) 1:00:00 [4]

Added another riser and the Achilles tendon tolerated it well :)

snow shoe hills (10x) 35:10 intensity: (10 @2) + (35:00 @4)

Wasn't feeling it this morning before I went out but I'm committed to hill training once a week. Great to get it out of the way on the first day of the week.
Ran/walked to the hill; down and up 10x; walked down one time at the end to take some pics and walked back up to see how different that might feel . more snow this week than last .

I find the worst part of the run up is cresting the hill. Same thing when I'm biking. I almost prefer to just keep climbing.

Ran the snowmobile trail back. No dog bites and lighter snowshoes made this an "enjoyable" workout after all.

Gorgeous, mild sunny day out there. Maybe I'll try to fit in a ski later although I need to plan my next yoga class. Haven't taught in a few weeks .
