Run (to and from ASP) 1:45:00  10.0 mi (10:30 / mi)
River Road to ASP visitor center and back from ASP
Snow, hills, slow
saw pfc on the way back (driving to balloon event in Hudson). I never see anyone... so this was fun!
Terraining (picking up controls) 2:00:00  3.1 mi (38:43 / mi)
shoes: Inov8 Roclite 305
I figured it would be a perfect snow/hill workout to go and get the controls from last week....
It was indeed a good workout, more than I bargained for. It took forever.
(I was tempted to enter 2400 ft of climb, as per pwentz3l's calculation, which would have at least somewhat accounted for the slow time)
The snow was deep, seems like there's a large fresh layer and still the deep under-layer, so it was very slow going and I really could not run through much of this terrain. With the hills, the snow... I resorted to a lot of walking, but tried to keep up the heartrate.
I stopped a few times, to dig snow out of Alice's paws... to talk to a park ranger who was lecturing me for being with a dog near the ski trails, with no leash (I had one when he "caught" me, but he had seen me earlier). I assured him that I was trying VERY hard to stay off the trails, and that I would be going off trail for the remainder of the time..... he was actually okay with that. As long as I kept her on leash. Fair enough. for today
And also stopped to talk to the nice delinquents who were busy shoveling snow off the main path. What an big job! Good thing there's an endless supply of community service "volunteers".
