classic ski warm up/down (Muskoka Loppet) 35:00 [3] 7.0 km (5:00 / km)

Finally, actually made it to the Muskoka Loppet! Went with Mrs. Huet and stayed overnight at the Jones again which meant we should have had some time to wax this morning - but conditions weren't nearly so nice and easy as last week. Rather warm, wet, some almost snow sort of rain, glaze in the tracks. Klister conditions for sure - which we tried but couldn't really get to work so used our zeros. Worked ok, slipping on the climbs in the track but could run up outside the tracks.

classic ski race (Muskoka Loppet) 1:00:00 [3] 15.0 km (4:00 / km)

Fun race, fast glaze but work on the uphills. Lots of double poling so I worked hard on the flats and felt good. Outpoled a bunch of university girls in the first 5km and caught up to some of the slower men then skied alone all the way around the back of the lake. Then a 13-yr old passed me with 5 km to go with no one else around. So we raced and had a blast in the winding flat final section. Sharp left at the bottom of the final hill, neck and neck heading into the tracks for the final 100m straight away and bam! Belly flop. Not the 13 yr.old. So she did beat me. But I still won the old lady division:)
