xc skiing (skate) 3:00:00 [3]

We went up to Craftsbury and skated around there. Hill, Ross, Dad and I started out on the Grand Tour, but were making good time and so decided on add on the extension. It was a beautiful day for skiing and my skate skiing has improved since yesterday. Near the end I was doing a lot of modified skating - I'm sure there's a term for it. Where instead of pusing off with both poles at the same time, I push with one pole with each 'step'. It's what I usually do to get up steeper hills, but near the end of the three hours I was doing it on any slight uphill.

xc skiing (skate) 2:00:00 [3]

We stopped at Northfield Mountain to do some skiing on the way to Vermont. We started skate skiing and I didn't think I was going to make it. The trails were icy and I was having a hard time. I improved as time went on. A lot of uphill climbing, since the trails are all basically on the side of a hill. You are either going up or down. The downs were quite impressive. The icy conditions made the downhills very thrilling. Ross and I were both wishing we had more edge to our skis. A lot of skating uphill today.

road run 50:00 [2]
shoes: Asics 1130

Running over to Westfield Street with dad. Then running down the hill 3 times and back home in the dark. We started in the daylight...

road run 22:00 [4]
shoes: Asics 1130

Ran up Westfield Street hill 3 times. The plan was to only do 2, and run the second half of the second one as hard as I could, while running the rest of it at threshold. But then on the way back down the hill after the first one, dad (and I) decided that I really should be doing more. So we tacked on another one. Splits: 7:14, 7:16 and 7:10. I was running around HR 182 for most of it, but then ran the second half of the last one faster, and HR was around 187. Feels good to run fast.

Then I came home and Ross made me the largest and best Valentine's dinner ever. And I am never eating again.

I also got a second DDR pad so we can have real competitions :)

It was pouring rain and cold outside. Later when I was driving to meet a friend for coffee it looked like a was driving down a river. We didn't want to run in that!

Orienteering 1:21:00 [2]
shoes: INOV8 Mudclaw -old

Today dad and I went orienteering!! It's been awhile. We ran around a ski-o course on the ponkapog golf course, because it''s the closest thing we have to Arizona terrain up here! We also did a few controls in the woods around it. Fun to be out orienteering again! I taped my arch as recommended (thanks Zan!) and it felt great while running my my Inov8s. I was worried it would bother my foot, since they were the shoes I was wearing when it all got worse, but it wasn't a problem.

Class, food shopping, and then making 42 Valentines. I meant to do plyometrics.

I do wish people would find a better pastime than bashing orienteers and NEOC on attackpoint discussions.
