X-C Skiing (Kingdom Valley) 49:17  5.18 km (9:31 / km) +77m8:51 / km
Still snowing, groomed the 4" we had so far. Soft skis on soft snowpack, right skis, but soft base under another inch or two additional made it slow and laborious. Nice to be out in gently falling dry snow.

Temp cold 10F, wax SG10, okay; skis #2 Fischer soft, not right for what is now hard pack, also rounded edges so skidded out on the hard step turns.
Snow coming in tomorrow and again on Xmas.
Road Running1:24:11  5.12 mi (16:27 / mi) +27m16:11 / mi
Run to get legs loose after yesterday wgt workout. Rail trail has not been plowed, so that made half the run on 3" of lumpy slightly packed snow. Still, felt good to be out. Temp around 40F and light rain showers all day.
Class cancelled tonight and worked out on my own. Got client work the next few days, so decided to make this tough. Not quite as expected...
Warm up with balance and jump rope.
Pullups 2 x 12.
Box jumps 18" x 5
Legs presses. Plan was to start with heavy wgt and low reps, and proceed on to lighter wgt and high reps. Found this to be quite a strain at the wgts I've been using previously. In fact, on the last set I could only do 25 reps of lighter wgt instead of the planned 40. Then started unloading the rack. Took off all my wgts and found an additional stack of 100# on the back of the machine. So what I did was:
10 x 325#
10 x 280#
15 x 235#
25 x 190#
Plus the rack itself adds another 75#. Definitely more than planned.
Pitcher squats with and without 20# kettleballs
Ab roll x 30
Skull crushers 10#
Leg ups with 10# wgt x 10
Ab/ad machine 2 sets 20 each with moderately heavy wgt
Ski erg 1000 m balanced on dynadisc
