(rest day)

Planned to ski all day. Got up top and we were all under dressed. Bailed after two runs. Very cold today.

Montrose with the bairns. Plan was to see Star Wars, but showing was too late. Supplies and home.

On a side note... After telling the coaches "I'm terrible at basketball, I got cut from the B team in Houston." Kendal made the 8th Grade Team. The coach did say "don't worry this is Telluride, try out!"
Kendal hasn't taken the kit off since finding out. I love this. I can't smile wide enough. There's a lot to be said for failure and being cut. Makes success at any level sweeter.
1 PM

Nordic (skate) 1:27:01 [3] 13.09 km (6:39 / km) +271m 6:01 / km
ahr:113 max:151

Took this very, very easy which for the effort still isn't easy. Always prided myself for having jelly boobs, but I may start having to ditch this sport. Maybe it's just the chilly temps in CO, but everything on the upper body looks perter.

Alpine Skiing 2:30:00 [3]

Beer has a very bad reputation as a medicinal remedy. I swear by the stuff. Woke up feeling great, no sign of a sore throat or virus.
Girls had Ski PE so after I'd dropped them and did some house chores I hit the bumps hard. Saw our first coyote of the year in the Valley Floor on the school run.

11 AM

Running 37:13 [3] 8.05 km (4:37 / km) +44m 4:30 / km
ahr:140 max:153

HR is total mince. One mile Easy, 2 miles Steady, 2 miles Hard. How my HR wasn't in the 170's by the end I've no idea. I was trashed. Wanted to skate, but wasn't able to.
Finished the trim and lights in the house. Thought I was going down with something, but a couple of beers has perked me up. Let's see what the morning has in store.

Alpine Skiing 1:45:00 [3]

Went for it. Absolutely knackered by the end. Every run was moguls. Felt pretty happy about the morning. Bitterly cold though.
1 PM

Nordic (skate) 58:26 [3] 9.93 km (5:53 / km) +39m 5:46 / km
ahr:113 max:151

Spent 15 mins feet only, on Tom's recommendation. I can see how this helps enormously. I was exhausted after being on the mountain. Snow was great. Even the shade wasn't too sticky.

Running 13:18 [3] 2.14 km (6:13 / km) +21m 5:56 / km
ahr:152 max:169

Legs dead...IT band killing on the left. Bailed immediately. Wanted to go four miles.
