Climbing1:45:00  shoes: La sportiva NAGO climbing
Good session today. got a tricky slab route, one with a sorta sketchy knee bar, and a sloper route Also made some progress on the black boulder problem I've been trying to campus since october- made the move from 4-5 3 times consecutively and I've only done it a total of 3 other times ever. Now I just have to string that on to the moves up to the 5th (which I can now get pretty much every time), and figure out the last move.
Logged at 1/3 time because it was super chill circles around a hockey rink

Definitely the hardest run I've done in a while. Supposed to be warmup, 5 min at 5 min/km followed by 3 min at 6min/km do this 4x, cooldown. Part was in Moores Meadows, which was super cool because there was thick, layered fog all over the snowy main field. Also it was warm and I was in shorts, so that was good. Struggled with getting the correct paces on this again. This was due to a variety of things: some off leash dogs (slowed me down as they got in my way/chased me), me making bad decision of where to run (hills), and then my breathing got bad . It's the first time I've had any breathing trouble since switching inhalers though, so that's pretty good. Also I was not really thinking straight on the 2nd half of the tempos and because of that hadn't started turning around to go back, so my 15 min cooldown turned into 45 mins. Also before the start of my tempo bit, a massive SUV passed me, cut in front of me and then stopped with no indication of what they were doing (which obviously worried me). I paused and then crossed to the left side of the road (I was on the right because the snow/ice was better for running there), and the people in the SUV turned out to be an older couple who rolled down their window to tell me that it's much better to run on the left side of the road (I know this). Anyways, point of the story is that I was kinda flustered after that and then did my first two 5min/k bits too fast because I just wanted to run. In other news, my shoes (spikes, which I have to wear in town because the roads and sidewalks are ice) have given me blisters on 8/10 toes and the upper inside sides of my feet. yay! That made climbing easier (not).

This was supposed to be my long run but... it's not really long (in distance) Had a lot of fun though, bear crawling up steep snowy hills and butt-sliding down them :) Also didn't go where I'd originally intended because I forgot about roadside snowbanks was very worried about my shoe choice after the first 3 blocks of pure ice but it was fine after that
