Cycling 1:50:00 
I wanted to get out in the calm before the storm. Bash and I had snowshoed the first km of deep snow to the main trail, but it was cleat-clogging, tire-bogging wet cement, and where I wasn’t wallowing I was hike-a-biking. Maybe a shorter bike with fatter tires and platform pedals would do better here.
The main trail was excellent riding on the snowmobile and tractor tracks. I tried some singletrack, but every time I got off the narrow packed bit on tight switchbacks I bogged down, so I stuck to firm doubletrack which was great riding and I did all the Palgrave doubletrack. The last km was miserable again, but on such a nice day who cares?
Orienteering 1:11:00 
Out with Bash and the beasts, exploring some little-seen areas to the SE of us. Dogs love the bushwhacking!
XC Skiing 1:02:00 
Fast glazed tracks, but Bazingadog wasn’t in a hurry so I ended up in front of him on the downhills.
Strength (Core) 20:00 
Caron’s class. Not too bad- more strength and less groin-splitters.
Yoga 50:00 
Mostly ok, but no monkey pose for me. Zero hamstring flexibility doesn’t help.
Strength 40:00 
Workout 2 + core and rehab
XC Skiing 1:05:00 
Commute with AD via the rollercoaster. The little guy has a sore shoulder so no extras today.
Night ski back in drizzle.
XC Skiing 1:05:00 
Easy ski with a trotting/sniffing BZdog. Frustrating technical issues and short-staffed at work, but a ski home cured all.
XC Skiing 1:00:00 
Family ski with Bash and the beasts. Conditions are so perfect, and another bluebird day!
Strength (Lumberjack) 45:00 
90 min of wailing away on some big green logs, which split better when frozen. Maul + sledgehammer.
Snowshoeing hills 1:15:20  5.66 km (13:19 / km) +320m 10:23 / km
Out the back door and bushwhacking peak-to-peak in the back bowls that can only be accessed in these conditions. Solid workout pounding steep hills in snow- love it!
Strength 50:00 
Workout 1 with some core and rehab.
Orienteering race 42:45  5.14 km (8:19 / km) +145m 7:17 / km
shoes: La Sportiva Uragano
Meh. Had an OK run but I think I MP’d 7.
