alpine skiing 2:10:38  20.34 km (6:25 / km) +2700m 3:52 / km
Sunday River, with Nancy. Spring conditions, temps probably in the 40s, but with a pretty good wind up top. Didn't have to dress all that warmly. Trails were icy in spots, and soft loose granular in others. Seven runs before a snack.
alpine skiing 1:59:32  19.27 km (6:12 / km) +2431m 3:48 / km
Seven more runs before my watch ran out of juice.
alpine skiing 30:00 
Three more, including one trip up the magic carpet lift, before grabbing a sandwich.
alpine skiing 50:00 
And since this place stays open late, three more under the lights, after they had done a grooming pass.
exercises 1:50 
80 situps, 30 pushups.

Singletrack in Wilard Brook SE, In The Dark. Temperature was still in the 60s, so it was T-shirt weather even at this hour. Picked this run because it seemed like it might drain better than other places, and it may well have been the best choice, but there were still a lot of puddles. Had a few hesitations when it wasn't clear which way the trail went.
I am a crazy old man who goes running around in the woods at night...
exercises 1:20 
80 situps. And there was no snow to deal with in my driveway, because when I got home after a day that hit 70F in Boston, there was none to be seen. But I also did something I'd been meaning to for a few days. On the run that I did, there was a very branchy tree that had fallen across the trail leading from Gilchrest St., so I went down there with a headlamp, a bow saw, and a pair of loppers, and sliced a piece out of the middle to open the path back up.
Snow dealings, round 7a: Nancy's driveway. After arriving back here at about 4:30 AM by car (I did most of the driving, because Nancy had to work today), we found much more snow than expected in her driveway. So I dropped her off at work and came back and gave it a pass with the electric snowblower, because it doesn't get much sun. As for my own driveway, I haven't been home yet, but my inclination is to just say screw it because it's supposed to be 60F tomorrow and 70F the day after that.
hiking (pavement) 1:39:27  10.41 km (9:33 / km) +68m 9:15 / km
shoes: GoLite Blaze Lite
Didn't have any running clothes with me, and I needed to pick Nancy up after work, so I wasn't that motivated to go home to get stuff to wear on a run through the slushy, muddy woods. Instead I just went for a brisk walk on the roads near her house. Pretty consistent speed, the only slowdowns were where I stopped briefly to read a sign, and when I went off the end of Milot Rd. and was walking at first in snow, and then on railroad ties. Pretty dark by the time I was done (~6:30).
