Gym 1:00:00 [1]
slept:7.0 weight:165.8lbs

With Eric in the gym.
2 PM

Running 29:25 intensity: (3:29 @1) + (31 @2) + (1:18 @3) + (17:24 @4) + (6:43 @5) 5.07 km (5:48 / km) +68m 5:26 / km
ahr:154 max:165

Well, this was interesting. Wicked hard for me, but about 3:20 faster than the last time I tried this the week before I left for Italy. The difference was all in having a less restricted stride. I am still extremely de-trained, but this was very encouraging. So keep up the good work.

5 AM

Gym 45:00 [1]
slept:6.75 weight:166lbs

Rhonda's morning class, Marj and Jackie. I was stiff this morning and it loosened me up a bit. Rhonda is home again, picked her up at the airport yesterday around 5:30.
1 PM

Snowshoe 36:24 intensity: (53 @0) + (25:38 @1) + (9:53 @2) 0.82 mi (44:15 / mi) +88m 33:13 / mi
ahr:103 max:126

Small excursion with Zack and Sassy. Very sunny, snow is starting to break down a bit, but very bright in the sunshine. Softer today than yesterday. Zack wanted to pinpoint the location of an as yet unmapped boulder, which appears at about 13:50.

Gym 1:00:00 [2]
slept:7.0 weight:166.8lbs

In the gym with Eric. In general I came through the trip in pretty good condition, and would have been even better if I hadn't done so much shoveling yesterday. This generally went well, and maybe time to start ramping up some of the strength training.
10 AM

Snowshoe 37:00 [2]

outing with Zack and Sassy. Nice snow, very sunny. Still tough to break trail, but pleasant on the sections already broken.
1 PM

Ski (cross country) 48:28 [1] 1.56 mi (31:04 / mi) +112m 25:24 / mi

More or less ok in the snowshoe tracks, but when I got out of them found that I sink a lot less on skis, and when I went downhill and was on two skis I could stay on top. Down to the bridge at the Big Down Marsh and back.

4 PM

Snowshoe 21:12 [2] 0.56 mi (37:44 / mi) +31m 32:13 / mi
slept:6.0 weight:166lbs

A lot of shoveling this morning left me kind of sore and tired. Thought I would go further, but the trail breaking was pretty hard and the dog was trying to hitch a ride on the back of the snowshoes, so this was enough. Still a bit jet lagged.

8 AM


Arrived too late to visit my Italian friends, so stayed at the airport hotel and they will pick me up this morning for a walk or a coffee before my flight this afternoon.
10 AM

Hike 1:15:00 [0]

Pleasant walk along the canal out to the sea with my friends Tullio and Giulia. My Italian is improving, chatted the whole time without having to resort to English even once. Beautiful day, very pleasant outing. We weren't there to eat, but it would be a good place to eat fish, very fresh, very inexpensive. Many restaurants, including one on a boat tied up to the dock. The promenade along the canal was full of fishermen repairing their nets.

Orienteering race 32:52 intensity: (2:11 @1) + (12:31 @2) + (10:01 @3) + (7:43 @4) + (26 @5) *** 2.15 mi (15:16 / mi) +74m 13:48 / mi
ahr:133 max:163 spiked:6/12c slept:6.0 shoes: 2012 MT101 Black

Longish sprint in the Reggia di Caserta, largest palace in Europe. Some forest and mostly in the "English Garden". Lots of mistakes. Ended 19th of 40, I think.

After the race we walked from the race center at the statue of Diana and Actaeon along the central water feature and fountains to the palace itself, a distance of 2.8 k. Amazingly opulent. Have to give these guys credit for getting permission in the archeological park yesterday and here today.
