Sunday Jan 31 #


Got out for some biking in the early afternoon, and then skied and ran later. Even in the late afternoon, lots of folks were out and about at Happy Jack.

Big volume in the month ended. Hip thing is still bothering me, but it's not worse and overall my sense is that it is somewhat better, in a very gradual way.

Saturday Jan 30 #


Skied some and ran trails on the north slope. Lots of people were out today. Actually, lots of people have been out almost every day this year--which is good to see. I don't know if this is left over from the corona virus, or because more people moving to Laramie recently are outdoor types or if it is simply randomness at work. Could be poor observations by me. Probably poor observations.

Friday Jan 29 #


Mild day with much more wind than advertised. Skied some and ran more.

Thursday Jan 28 #


Temps well up into the 40s in town despite being mostly overcast, and the wind wasn't even up to "decent breeze" standards, so I planned a short ski followed by something better.

Something better in this case being an O' run out at Twin Boulders, 11.3 kms, lots of looping running along the course looking for the areas with thinnest snow covering or (sometimes) bare ground. Don't remember any places where running went down into the slog setting, but perhaps that's selective memory. Nice to get out, and if the sun had been shining, it would have been brilliant.

Saw one small moose, and I think it saw me, too.

Wednesday Jan 27 #


Skied and ran. Sunny with some 40 mph breeze.

Tuesday Jan 26 #


Ski intervals were up today, and ski intervals went down today.

First day this year it felt more like a "normal" winter day--high of 13F. That's not normal compared to the average high of 33F for this time of January, but usually by now we've had a handful of chillier days, whereas this was the first one since maybe early December.

Skis were a little slow because of the (warmer) wax on them vs. the temps, but so what. You just deal with it.

Monday Jan 25 #


Skied and ran. Light flurries at times during the day; didn't add up to anything.
