Running 30:00 [2]

Easy trot with the dogs. Big test for Brody when Logan took off after the 3 Muskedeers, but he sat on command. Next up was Fabio the turkey with Longan in pursuit, then the 3 deer again. Big boy never faltered, but I needed to be vigilant.

Strength 45:00 [2]

Easy workout 2.

Cycling 55:00 [3]

Finally got a new trainer set up, and tried Zwift.
The new trainer is nicer than my analog one, and I can see Zwift being less boring.

Looks like lots of features and info that I don’t know how to use yet.

The trainer is a direct drive one I got on the MEC gear swap. Hope to use it a bit during muck season.

Running 1:02:00 [3]
shoes: La Sportiva Uragano

Commute with the big guy, via rollercoaster on the return. He passed the Turkey test, and also passed when Crash’s Sadie took off after Bambo, and he sat beside us. He *was* annoyed.

Ice cascade is finally gone. Singletrack still soggy but rollercoaster doubletrack is dry.

Running 58:00 [3]
shoes: La Sportiva Uragano

Commute with the big guy. He was apologetically excellent again, even when we met Deathwish Deer, Banzai Bunny and Suicide Squirrel in one small section. He even sat while Banzai dashed right out in front of him.
I never let him get further than half his long line.

The one steep hill was tricky even with spikes, or 4 legs and claws.

Running 57:00 [3]
shoes: Brooks Caldera blue

Commute with AD. I thought summer shoes would work, given a forecast high of 17C, and they were a delight on the bare ground but awful on glazed refrozen ice pellets in sections. Had to ski down one steep slope basically tree-to-tree.

Hard to get back up this section as it was water cascading over ice. The rest was soft crust, mud, some dry ground and some deep standing water.

Snowshoeing 50:00 intensity: (45:00 @2) + (5:00 @4)

Fail.

The plan was to take the two dogs and hike up the ski hills for a bit before it got too soft. Brody was on his long line but was In a feisty mood. At one point I stopped to clean up a mess and he went full Bazingadog out of long line reach despite his collar and us yelling hard. He blasted up the ski hill with us in pursuit and -eventually- came back from the other direction bleeding from a foot.

After that it was back on leash for him and he dragged me around a bit up and down the mountain until we took him back home cleaned him up. We’re both in the dog house.

So Disappointed. I’ve been working so hard with him and he’s been doing so well lately. I think he’s just been playing me.
