Technique/balance work with a few ski team kids.
Legs only, double pole, 1-foot poling
1 and 2 skate
11 AM

hiking (doggie jog) 1:00:00 [3]

Such a nice morning but I needed to not do any more roller skiing since my thumbs/forearms are pretty tender. So I went a took Kato, Jamie and Oso for a jog on the trails behind their house. What great dogs to take out for a run; no leashes, no hassles, they run and run, and come back as soon as they're called and talk about feeling loved. They go berserk when I arrive and 3 big dogs at once just about knock me over in joyful greeting. Never any doubt that I'm welcome - at least by the dogs. Although I was invited for a cup of coffee and had a nice chat with Sarah afterward.

After enduring Anna's knuckle therapy/torture session you're not supposed to work out with any intensity for a couple of days. So I went for a slow, short, flat jog-ski stride on the Island Lake trails.

Went to "work" today with Goose at Highlands. We attached electrical junction boxes to wires out on the trail for their night lights - nothing like finicky work with your fingers at -6degrees, in the snow. Acclimatization day.

Nice hike at a very civilized pace with Mrs. BGY from Duffy's Lane south, across Castlederg and on to Duffy's Lane north.

roller ski (steady skate ski) 55:00 [3] 11.0 km (5:00 / km)

Met Mrs. Huet for a ski on the rolling roads of Cedar Mills. A recovery ski for both of us so we chatted while we skied and kept the intensity low. Very nice:)
3 PM

roller ski (technique) 45:00 [3]

One foot scootering, legs only, balance work with Humberview team. Sure is nice to have new pavement.

1 PM

trail Run (hv trail) 3:10:00 [3] 15.0 km (12:40 / km)

Solo long hike with poles on the Humber trail. Did some pole walking,/jogging, some ski striding, some off-set on hills. (See that pace Hermes? Now that's a "base" workout.) Definitely a shoulder season day: bright sunny morning, then gusty winds, then grey and raw, a few gentle snow flakes, then a heavy but short flurry, a bit of sun again. Winter is soon :)
