Skate Skiing 1:45:10 [3] 11.9 mi (8:50 / mi) +400m 8:00 / mi
shoes: Rossi Xium Skate

Training in Jackson, incl. peering at Ski-O maps while skiing. I have to relearn all this multi-tasking. ~ 40 degrees and getting slushy in sun-exposed areas. Ellis to Wifferdil to S Hall, then down the Keeney, then N on the Ellis for a while but turned around as my stomach was growling for badly needed lunch.
1 PM

Skate Skiing 1:44:55 [3] 11.55 mi (9:05 / mi) +310m 8:23 / mi
shoes: Rossi Xium Skate

After a yummy soup at Madeleine's, drove up to Prospect Farm, where there had been grooming going on in the late morning. Tried the Fisher Revolutions for the first .6 mile but they were such awful clunkers, it made the difference between pleasant to dreadful. Of course it was after lunch, and the slush was now getting worse in the sun. So went back to the car and grabbed the Rossis. But I did use 10cm shorter poles, which did slow me down . Another set of Ski-O courses on my mapholder.
First the Boggy Brook out and back, then made it up to Orchard trail and did all side trails, but could not stomach going all the way to the top of the Wildcat Valley trail - just too steep in these conditions.

Trail running 27:05 [2] 2.68 mi (10:06 / mi) +25m 9:49 / mi
shoes: On Cloudflow dark grey

Run to work on trails, usual way. A few remaining ice patches made for a bit of a slow down.
5 PM

Trail running 34:23 [2] 3.55 mi (9:41 / mi) +50m 9:17 / mi
shoes: On Cloudflow dark grey

Running home just before dark. Via Waterworks to W Foss Farm to Spruce Wood, then an extra loop around the hole. Just trying to be comfortable but pushing a tiny bit. Getting used to the idea of regular running.

Trail running 1:18:50 [2] 7.02 mi (11:14 / mi) +55m 10:58 / mi
shoes: On Cloudflow dark grey

Lunch-time run going to J's trail off Surrey. I tried to find the connector from Adam's trails but lost it somehow. Then on J's trail ; a new clear cut - more rabbit protection projects - had to plow through. Looped out towards Highland H and back via Frolking area to J's trail and back via Spruce Wood as usual. I tried to not force speed but rather even comfortable pace with keeping the breathing to 2 steps/2 steps - as opposed to in-out in 3 steps. Having strong skiing legs helps especially on the uphills.

Trail running 31:40 [2] 3.08 mi (10:17 / mi) +35m 9:56 / mi
shoes: On Cloudflow dark grey

Snow seems to be gone for the most part. GRRR! After work "inspection" run around Spruce Hole, just to be 100% sure that there is really no skiing. There wasn't. Ok time to switch - 1/2 marathon looms around the corner (6 weeks) - trails were fine to run, mostly soft, a few ice patches to balance over but nothing major really. I was overdressed - correct attire needs to be relearned again as well... The thrill of changing seasons.
