Really nice course set by Greg. Quick, not much climb, lots of controls (28) and off-trail travel. Went well for first half, then slowed a bit after map exchange. Still, good result.

Lots of hills, warm snow, slow skiing. This was work today. Royal Gorge gets plenty of sun and it hit the trails pretty hard. Last third was a grind.

X-C Skiing (Tahoe XC) 1:46:12 [3] 20.22 km (5:15 / km) +428m 4:45 / km

Rest day. Felt good hitting the perimeter trails around Tahoe XC. Altitude no problem now, just general fitness on the hills.

Wednesday Feb 2, 2011 #

X-C Skiing warm up/down 27:00 [3] 1.6 km (16:52 / km)

Up the trail to the start.

X-C Skiing race (Northstar xc) 1:30:00 [4] 15.3 km (5:53 / km)

Good fast day at Northstar. Fun area, you take a gondola to the xc center and then ski up another k to the trail network. Nice conditions for off-trail, powder over solid base. They forgot to groom one trail; we crossed it going down on a bushwhack to hit the trail with our control. I realized the trail wasn't there; others kept going down the mountainside ... ha! ha!

Then the next control was hung on the wrong side of the trail, high up and back from the trail. Missed it and carefully searched along a half k of trail before I spotted it on the 4th pass; 8 min on that one. Still, in 2nd place for the day (out of the 3 of us).

X-C Skiing warm up/down 1:18:00 [2] 10.7 km (7:17 / km)

Down to lunch (4 min), then back up later for control pickup. Finally a blazing descent down the alpine trails to the base area.

Note

In a display of unusual intelligence, we decided to skip the night xc race at Tahoe Donner. Shower and spaghetti was calling.

Stretching 10:00 [0]

Working on back and calves. Heavy climbing today.

Tuesday Feb 1, 2011 #

X-C Skiing warm up/down 8:30 [2] 1.12 km (7:35 / km)

X-C Skiing race (Tahoe Donner) 1:34:00 [4] 15.33 km (6:08 / km)

Nice race at TD. Trails well packed and off trail surfaces had 6" powder on top of firm crust. Two laps up to the top of TD and another in and out of the Euer Valley. Good bushwhacking as appropriate. Well behind Greg and Jonas, but what do you expect.

Found out I mispunched on Sat, clipping a nearby control in the maze instead of the correct one with a similar code.

X-C Skiing warm up/down 17:00 [3] 2.7 km (6:18 / km)

Lap around the night race course for tomorrow. Tell me again why I want to do this after the Northstar race?

X-C Skiing 40:00 [2] 5.0 km (8:00 / km)

Control pickup. Around the lower end trails, so did it all no pole.

Stretching 10:00 [0]

Light stretching. Calves felt tight this morning.

Monday Jan 31, 2011 #

X-C Skiing (Tahoe XC) 38:00 [3] 7.8 km (4:52 / km)

Two hours straddling a Ski-Doo setting narrow trails for Greg. Then a short ski
session to loosen up.
