Road running 1:36:03 [3] 9.02 mi (10:39 / mi) +424ft 10:12 / mi

A clockwise loop from the condo taking me south a bit, then over to Golden Hill Road and out past Lenox WTF and Woods Pond and then home. Trying to gradually increase my longest run of the week; it's not easy though--had to walk a bit on one steep hill.

9 AM

Road running 48:23 [3] 3.06 mi (15:49 / mi) +150ft 15:07 / mi

Morning walk out toward Woods Pond and back. Above freezing and the roads are pretty clear now, so a pleasant walk.

4 PM

Walking 1:03:31 [3] 4.03 mi (15:46 / mi) +180ft 15:07 / mi

Afternoon walk with Colette out to Woods Pond and back. Pretty close to 40°F, so quite warm for January.

Road running 56:43 [3] 5.11 mi (11:06 / mi) +295ft 10:31 / mi

A mix of paved roads and snow-covered dirt roads starting from the parking area at the southern end of Woods Pond. I was hoping to run on a snowmobiled trail, but evidently the last snow fall wasn't quite deep enough to lure the snowmobilers out, so I got back on the clearer paved roads instead.

Hiking 2:12:34 [3] 6.0 mi (22:06 / mi) +1004ft 19:04 / mi

Drove to Shandaken Wild Forest in Big Indian, New York, to hike on the trails there, which I've done before. The parking area was nicely plowed, but the trails had 4-6" of snow, so I needed microspikes for traction. No one else had been on the trail, nor did I see anyone else during the hike.

The going was tougher than I expected, mostly due to the snow, or at least that's what I'm hoping.

Walking 24:00 [3] 1.42 mi (16:54 / mi) +20ft 16:41 / mi

Short walk with Colette in Phoenicia, New York, where she was attending a faculty retreat. We had planned to do much more, but the roads were a mess and the wind was biting, so we cut it short.

Hiking 2:36:00 [3] 4.25 mi (36:42 / mi) +2200ft 24:38 / mi

Peter Crisci and I met at the South Bellows Pipe Trail parking lot. We planned to do one loop up to Mt. Greylock and back down via the Thunderbolt Trail. We both wore microspikes and they were the perfect choice. Still, there was a lot of snow-covered ice on the Thunderbolt Trail, so caution was warranted. Any fall would have been on a very hard surface, nothing I wanted any part of.

Hiking 1:39:00 [3] 4.67 mi (21:12 / mi) +1381ft 16:34 / mi

I started from the October Mountain State Forest Campground, where there is a plowed parking lot, and headed up to the Boulder Trail. That's a good long climb with lots of, yes, boulders and ice as well. Then it was a right-hand turn onto the Tannery Trail, not quite as rough as the Boulder Trail, but with a lot of ice to make up for that. Finally, it was back on the Boulder Trail before dropping down to the Campground.

I wore microspikes which offered great traction, but with the ground completely frozen the spikes led to a lot of ankle twisting, nothing serious, yet still an issue to worry about while I was out there.
