Strength 50:00 [2]

Easy workout 2 + rehab. I had a sore neck since some tricky work yesterday.

Running (Microspikes) 1:08:00 [3]
shoes: Saucony Razor

Too nasty out for studded shoes, so on with the Kahtoolas. Didn't do much extra beyond the normal commute in the grey drizzle and ice with AD.

The rain let up for the late run home at least, and all the ice fell off the branches.

Running 1:15:00 [3]
shoes: La Sportiva Crossover GTX

Run in with BZdog in rain on crusty ice. Much slipperier for the return- running on hard lumpy ice in the rain by headlamp- lovely.
At least the big boy was amused sniffing things that are thawing out under the snow.

TOC O-cup Claireville.
Icy conditions on trails but not much snow in the bush.
I did some extra distance in the first box as I thought the river crossing was forbidden, but came out in 3rd place behind Hans and Andre.
I was with them to the second box, but decided to do my own thing, and promptly wasted 6 minutes not finding b and having to run to a farther control and back, but at least it was *my* error, not due to following a crowd.

The rest went fine, and I enjoyed navigating myself at a speed where I can read the map.
I did give my bad hamstring a painful yank on a misstep.
Decent course, good venue.
Nice brewpub lunch after.

Cycling 1:10:00 [3]

Albion Hills Fat Bike Festival.
Bash and I tried the rental fat bikes for a bit of tootling around. The real fat bikes ride the breakable crust off-trail that stymied my 'bent, but the trails were mostly hardpacked.

I switched to my 'bent. I hadn't wanted to ask if I could do the race as I had no idea how I'd compare to the fat bikes, or whether I'd be allowed. The RD let me chase after the mid-pack riders on the 20K race once the hardcore riders had done lap 1 and the pack spread out. I was surprised to be passing them fairly easily on the doubletrack. I managed to hold my own on the singletrack sections, but on 2 corners I had to take a wider line and got stuck in soft snow, so I had to get off and push for a few seconds. One guy passed me there, and another passed me in a softer section, but on the whole I'd say I would have had no problem doing the 20k race in these conditions. Things may have been different if I hit a traffic jam at the first single track, but it seems the fat bike riders are content to chug along sanely and I'd be fine.

Next I got to demo an all-carbon fatty, which was very nice. It cruised the trails very easily. I got it bogged down off-trail, but when I got off I was up to my knees in crusty swamp, so that's fair enough.

Fun day out! Didn't really keep track of the time.

Strength 1:00:00 [2]

Rehab, light workout 1, lumberjack.

Cycling 1:00:00 [3]

Ride around Palgrave E and W with Adventuredog. Pretty tough ride at first, but the doubletrack frozen snowshoe tracks were not bad at all on the plus tires. Some spots were a grind, others felt like hard dirt. A few glare ice bits.
