Snow Shoveling 45:00 [1]

I decided to move snow while it was still light and fluffy using the "snow sled". About 6 inches. Sleet and ice is forecast for the rest of the day, yuk! I cleaned the cars out, dumping the snow out to the driveway for the plow. Then walkways around the house and finally the porch, moving all the snow to the front yard. The solar collector clean-out will have to wait.
4 PM

XC Skiing (back country laying track) 1:50:06 [2] 6.1 mi (18:03 / mi) +100m 17:10 / mi
shoes: Karhu BC Tele Skis

Perfect BC conditions! 6 inches of powder under 2 inches of sleet. Sleet makes for fast cruising: all these micro balls keep the skis moving. I just slapped some green kicker over who knows what old layers of dirt and wax on my Tele skis. Worked beautifully! Temps 15 rising to 20. No wind - feels balmy. I was able to make tracks on about 3 miles of trails - tracks are about 1 inch deep, just like machine-made. On the second run through, it was quite fluid with even some double poling. I tracked most of the logging cuts. Another skier had made nice tracks on a loop up Electric Avenue and around the Hole. Spruce Hole Cross Country Skiing is taking shape!

Road Running 3:09:49 [3] 24.5 mi (7:45 / mi) +480m 7:18 / mi
shoes: On Cloud grey-black

Boston Training. Had to do a long run before the big snow storm. Next few days will be snow dealings, classic skiing, and then school starts Tuesday. This was my chance. I planned out a hilly course - and hilly it was. I started at the wrong intersection which added a couple of flat miles - not bad for the mileage.

In Nottingham: Out Gile Rd to 152, then out and back (mistake) to Flutter Rd to Deerfield Rd (towards the Boat Ramp) , but then over Stevens Hill (Rd), over Bean Hill via Coffeetown Rd to Rt 43, W 1/2 mile to Harvey Rd, and then down - "sailing" on Nottingham/Deerfield Rd .

Around mile 19 the brutal Nottingham Square uphill (270 ft climb according to Garmin) . My legs gave up on me, and I had to add in a couple of short walking breaks. Over the hill and mostly down on Ledge Farm Rd, which allowed me to recover somewhat. Left on Poor Farm Road. I started to lose it - I probably was near bonking, but did not notice it in the cold temperature (25 ish). I only had 1 gel and 12 oz of electrolyte drink for the whole tour. Every little hill now slowed me down to over 9 min/mile and I felt really spent. Finally via S. Summer Str to McCrillis Rd and back to the car where I wolfed down 20oz of warm water.

Afterwards: I felt my hips and bottom of feet, but mostly I am overall exhausted but no other noticeable repercussions. (Note: about 50% was on "town" dirt roads solidly packed with sand and sand over ice. Better for feet! ) More long runs are in the plans before April.

Road Running 40:46 [3] 5.35 mi (7:37 / mi) +80m 7:17 / mi
shoes: On Cloud grey-black

Run to Randall Farm to pick up our weekly bread. This time we received Oma's Best (on special request) which is about a 2.5 lb "brick" - so this added to my weight on the way home. Not really noticeable though, as I am used to running with pack.

2 PM

Classic Skiing 50:00 [2] 1.8 mi (27:47 / mi) +20m 26:51 / mi
shoes: Fisher Nordic Cruising 164

Easy ski w. Nancy at MtWash Ski Touring: the river loop behind the touring center.
3 PM

Skate Skiing 1:13:09 [3] 8.38 mi (8:44 / mi) +200m 8:08 / mi
shoes: Rossi Xium Skate

On to Whittaker Woods, starting on Rt 16, next to Cigar and Bar. Steep uphill from the beginning to Stonehurst Manor, but tracks were hard packed/frozen, so it was an easy uphill. On to powerline trail over to WW. Grooming was better here: softer yet still fast. Fast "bombing" around the WW hill. The Kenneth High School team was out training; about 30 students buzzing around. Fun to watch. This area would be so nice for a Ski-O if the natural surface was not frozen as it currently is. Numerous ungroomed connector trails and some very open woods - and there is a foot-O map of the area.

Trail running 59:23 [3] 6.0 mi (9:54 / mi) +70m 9:33 / mi
shoes: On Cloudflow dark grey

Back to running... Around the hole then over to W Foss Farm to bike trails and back. Very quiet around, I stirred up a hawk like bird, mostly white/gray on its underside, then later a pileated woodpecker. Also there was a pile of white/gray hairs smack on the trail, blood traces and finally a deer carcass on the side of the trail. The "native" inhabitants are busy on this warmish day (32 F).
2 PM

jogging 22:00 [2] 2.0 mi (11:00 / mi) +20m 10:40 / mi
shoes: On Cloud grey-black

Running from garage (oil change) to office, and back at 5 pm.
6 PM

Road Running 38:35 [3] 4.6 mi (8:23 / mi) +60m 8:04 / mi
shoes: On Cloud grey-black

Dover pub run with Six03. Their usual "5 mile" loop starting out Mt Vernon. Good chatting while meeting new people. Then "pubbing" afterwards at the Brickhouse (Beer and tacos). Quite the eclectic group.
