XC Skiing (classic) 57:28 intensity: (1:56 @0) + (55:29 @1) + (3 @2) 7.68 km (7:29 / km) +103m 7:01 / km
ahr:108 max:145

A little ski outing in the backyard with a large percentage of new-to-me trails. Slightly warmer than yesterday, went with VR30 instead of 40 and that seemed to be a better call. First I did the Korsvoll lysløype and it was about as I'd expected based on running around it -- abrupt. it would be fun for me with fresh, soft snow. I'm sure good skiers enjoy it and can stay in the tracks but I didn't appreciate that the middle was totally eaten up by all the walkers (and their dogs).

Then down the main trail to Låkeberget where I took another new-to-me trail up towards Nedre Blanksjø. It was delightful but I'm glad I wasn't going down it today. It would be super fun with a little bit of snow on top. Or backcountry skis. Or both.

Home from there to the end of the road which was again a treacherous 600m walk. Ski boots + ice is just not a great combo.

I can feel yesterday's ski in my upper body but otherwise ok.

XC Skiing (classic) 3:06:30 intensity: (29 @0) + (1:47:43 @1) + (1:06:26 @2) + (9:57 @3) + (1:40 @4) + (15 @5) 25.64 km (7:16 / km) +427m 6:43 / km

It's cold (-10C) and sunny in Oslo and there's still a lot of snow out there (2-3x normal amounts) so of course it's a ski weekend. Earlier this week I had picked out routes for Sat (short) and Sun (long) and I was excited to get out.

Started from home and went out to Maridalen and up to Skar. Not as many people as I expected, I guess they'll all show up tomorrow. As I got started I thought through my route and realized that there was no way it was only 15km, as I had it in my head that it was. Weird. I got close to Skar (9km) and realized that the reason the route seemed long is because the route was supposed to involve taking the bus to Skar, not skiing there, and starting the loop 9km in. Oh.

The snow up the valley wasn't that awesome and I didn't want to go back down (it was very hard), so I figured I had to continue up towards Øyungen. If it wasn't that great I could just turn back and catch the next bus, still getting in 13 or 15km or so. If it was good then I could just bite the bullet, continue on, and hope I had the energy to make it all the way home.

It was wonderful, even across the lakes, and I got to ski a bunch of stuff I'd never skied before. Only negative was a dramatic and painful faceplant going down a short but ridiculously steep hill. And also how tired I was for the last several kms.

Brought water with me but never drank because I really didn't want to stop, afraid that my sweaty parts would get very cold. Should have also had food rather than just my card (for emergency waffle stops), even though I hadn't planned to be out so long. Not sure I would have eaten anything (see: didn't drink) but that would have been a good idea. Basically, I was not very smart today. And as awesome as the skiing is right now I am definitely looking forward to running around in a place where I can stop to take in the scenery without worrying about my sweat freezing.

The Relive video for this is amusing since it's a summer view. I've got some Jesus Christ lizard activity going on there.

Strength/Core 1:00:00 [3]

In the gym with Amir. Mixed it up a bit today, some twisty lunges, something I think could be called a dumbell Bulgarian split squat, and kettlebell deadlift jumps, plus some core and the regular stretching + mobility stuff.

The increasingly large spare tire around my waist is generally well hidden, so Amir was under the (false) impression that I didn't have much to lose. I made a comment about it today and now I've been commanded to stay away from sugar junk for four weeks. This is fine except for the fact that we are going to be in the US for two them. I may have to make a few purchases of special American candy to bring back and save as birthday treats or something.

Strength/Core 1:15:00 intensity: (30:00 @1) + (30:00 @2) + (15:00 @3)

Training with Amir. Got in 10 minutes of rowing and a bit of the warmup before officially starting, so we were able to do a bit more. Will do a bit less rowing and a bit more of the warmup next time. Today was all legs and core to "see how I handle it". Definitely tired legs, we'll see what happens.

Lukas seems very chipper and healthy and went back to school today but I feel like I'm coming down something (again). Germs: the gift that keeps on giving.
