skate ski (Highlands) 2:30:00 [3] 30.0 km (5:00 / km)

Bright sunny day and below zero this morning but no fresh snow so conditions were hard and icy. It was rock skiing down below at Highlands but up top it was more pleasant and actually got a bit better as the sun softened the ice a bit and you could get an edge. The first 2 fingers, flat 500 and back orange were all skiable with a few icy patches and leaves but surprisingly good. It was a bit bumpy so good balance practice but so nice to be out in the sunshine :). I just repeating the loops until I got hungry.

skate ski (park) 40:00 [3]

Just enough frost early this morning, and just enough left-over snow to skate in the park - like jumping from ice floe-to-ice floe. But it was easy skating until you hit grass or dirt. Did sets of double poling/legs only.

skate ski (park) 40:00 [3]

It was just cold enough for a bit of crust this morning so I skated around the park and soccer fields before it got any warmer. It was nice:)

insanity intervals 35:00 [3]

Felt the need for some intensity so I did some "Insanity" and definitely broke a sweat and got my heart rate up. (Which I needed to do after eating MaxVo2's chocolate cake last night!)
4 PM

cycling (road) 30:00 [3] 10.0 km (3:00 / km)

The sun came out later this afternoon and it was very mild so I went for a short spin up the paved trail and back.

snowshoeing (Palgrave Forest) 1:45:00 [3]

Snowglobe snowy morning. Big fat flakes coming straight down. Goose and I headed up to Palgrave Forest for a tromp in the woods on snowshoes and had a lovely time. Then we got a call from Tman's day program saying he was
not himself, they couldn't wake him up for 3 hours, he couldn't stand up at all. So went to get him and he definitely could not stand up. He was pale, glassy- eyed, couldn't keep his eyes open or his head up. Looked a lot like a drunk or a drugged out person. Turns out he was. The workers at his house had given him his roommate's meds - and he's twice the size - and it's a sedative. Tman never got his own. He was quickly and well examined, had his blood and pee tested, his chest and abdomen x-rayed etc. right away at the Peel Memorial urgent care clinic - but it was still about 3 hours. Mostly we had to wait to see if the effects were wearing off. Bit scary but he started perking up and managed to eat dinner out with us, then walk tipsily into his house. Another tale of Tman.

classic ski (Mono) 1:00:00 [3]

Took some stuff to the Mono ski swap and since there was still enough snow there, headed out on my crowns to check out their trails. Ross had run the snowmobile over them to try to pack the snow down enough for people to be able to kick in a track but too many walkers had been out so it was bumpy and not very nice. However, right beside that and in sections where he hadn't run the snowmobile, no walkers had gone there so it was actually lovely for kicking in my own classic track:). Gorgeous blue skies and sunshine but it was early enough that the snow wasn't sticky. Another smiley day on snow!
