XC Ski - BackCountry1:29:56 7.89 km (11:24 / km) +143m10:27 / km ahr:131 max:145 shoes: Rossignol Blue/Orange Clunker
First ski of the season - about 4" of powder. Slow, as it had warmed up a bit and the snow as sticking to the bottom of my skis and clumping under my boots.
Grinding over rocks in many places. Fortunately no dead stops and face plants. Around the E side of Cobble, out Birch, up Oak and back along Maple - coming down the S-curve was hairy, but successful.
Cut over Short Oak, then reversed Cobble back to the clubhouse.
A beautiful day out there

Green Course at Urban Forestry Center in Portsmouth.
Started off as a runner's course, with the struggles I'm having with that now - dead legs, labored breathing.
Felt like I was moving better in the woods, although much of that was on trail.
