Trail run on Mt Rowe. Gunstock trails were mostly washed out and/or glare ice, except for the few GNA groomed for their race this morning. Took a wuss pill last night, so didn't go over to race.
Wish I had left my studded O shoes in the car from yesterday. In the shade it was very hard and slick. it did soften up where the sun had been hitting it for a while. Went down on my ass a couple of times. On downhills, tried hitting with a straight leg right onto my heel to bust into the crust a bit. Worked for the most part, except once. I went right on my butt and started sliding down the trail. lifted one cheek to avoid a potentially disastrous encouter with a protruding chunk of ice... Worked my way over to the side of the trail and got into the stuff that the snocat hadn't touched - was able to drive my heels into that and stop.
Snowshoes, with the claws, would have been a good thing.
There's going to be a snowshoe race at GUnstock on the 26th - 5k, including an up and over Cobble Mtn.
