Alpine Skiing 4:00:00 [3]

Pretty easy today. Lift was shut due to high wind. Met up with Nicole, an old player from Houston Christian. Half of UT is here at the moment. Gorronos was packed when I went past. Planned to Nordic, but had a beer with Nicole at the end of the day.
Followed Newcastle v Rochdale on the chair.....a satisfactory result.
Also read the medals thread. Grrrrrr I just don't get people. Jordon makes a good point. Make it meaningful. Get a local artist to make mugs or coasters or something cool. And if you're having a National Champs make sure the Champs get the awards. My kids were pissed after that BAOC debacle. Needless to say. This year it's NAOC and that's it for orienteering (Niels convinced me. I hope he's right and not another shambles.) The event, just for my entry, has cost me more than the World Masters entry and the flights for the whole family from the UK to Latvia. I'm pretty over US orienteering. But I know I shouldn't be. When it's good, it's awesome. Rant over.

Alpine Skiing 3:30:00 [3]

Checked the weather. Perfect.
Went out hardcore all over the mountain. Could be the best day yet. Skis are wrecked.
4 PM

Running 38:59 [3] 7.43 km (5:15 / km) +53m 5:04 / km
ahr:158 max:182

Easy from Gymnastics. Out and back on valley floor. Feeling great, although that's something to do with zero volume. Watch says detraining......Understatement.

(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.

1 PM

Running 59:02 [3] 8.54 km (6:55 / km) +278m 5:57 / km
ahr:156 max:179

Easy up to Meadows via Boomerang and back past HS. Felt very good.

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.
