Meadow loop before heading into work to do things that were canceled Wednesday for the snow day. Running a bit late so pushed the pace. Not super fast but faster than any recent outings which is pretty good given that 1) the trails were a mess of snow, ice and mud; 2) I didn't run a step just tried to walk fast; and 3) I've still got a bit of chest congestion so had a couple of coughing fits.
Could really feel yesterday's workout!
strength & stretching 45:00 
Good session with Melissa. We were relegated to a different room that didn't have as many weights so I ended up using 6lb instead of 5lb for a lot of things. Definitely tougher (especially anything over my shoulders), but doable.
strength & stretching 30:00 
Two rounds of shoveling. More to come later I'm sure but I'd rather do several quick ones.
Finally solved one of the weekly maps - at least I'm pretty confident I did.
hiking 54:00  2.87 mi (18:49 / mi) +268ft 17:17 / mi
A nice morning hike - felt full of energy. Was just thinking how yesterday there were people everywhere while I was out and this morning I hadn't seen a soul, when of course I met some people going the other way on the trail. One woman asked me about how the trails connect up across Wise's Mill - she had been coming the other direction and the trail across the road isn't that obvious, you have to know to go up the road a tad and around the uphill side of the overgrown gate to get to it and you can't see that there is a trail there at all from the other side of the road - but after I explained that she waved away all my attempts at how to get to this side of that trailhead from where we were. I am not convinced she will find it. Oh well, I tried.
hiking 3:15:46  7.28 mi (26:53 / mi) +1724ft 21:58 / mi
Hill workout. For some reason this seemed more appealing than driving out to Hibernia to orienteer. I've noticed I'm getting very picky about which maps I want to orienteer on.
Another gorgeous day - sunny and 50F when I finished.
