Snowshoe Raid with Hammer.
Flash freeze and snow over a ton of rain made for dicey conditons, and -15c meant frozen hydration hoses and cold fingers at times.

Hammer was in fine form both in speed and skill, and we ended up breaking trail for a fair bit off the start, with Hammer diving through the thickest bush sometimes in luge postition, sometimes in skeleton mode. We were with Storm Beowulf up to the matrix. In the second half we ended up breaking way more crusty trail than expected, and iced up the snowshoes a bit which made for uneven running. Even where we followed a few tracks the uneven breakable crust made for hard going.
Hammer’s nav was right on but for one CP with tracks all over the place which cost us a few min and meant we had to drop CP50.
We had a dicey log river crossing in the South end which cost us a few more minutes, especially when my pants got stuck on a broken branch.
We were a bit overtime on the final road run.

You can see that Hammer left it all out there.

Pleased to see that we were second overall, behind Storm Beowulf, with the most points minus our penalty. Great to race with the Hammer again.

Nice to see Bash and Browner take the masters female, and second female overall I think.

Strength 45:00 [2]

Rehab and most of workout 2

Snowshoeing 29:00 [3]
shoes: Saucony Razor

Solid run in with AD- breaking trail for a fair bit. Soggy run back in the freezing rain. Razors were dicey on shiny slick sidewalk, but better than no ice grip.

Tuesday Jan 9 #

XC Skiing 1:00:00 [2]

Got another ski commute in before tomorrow’s rain with Brody McSniffalot.

Monday Jan 8 #

XC Skiing 1:05:00 [2]

Commute with AD.
Breaking trail in fairly light snow to work, skis bricking up a bit on the way home so a slog for the last half or so.

Sunday Jan 7 #

Snowshoeing 1:22:00 intensity: (52:00 @1) + (30:00 @3)

Snowshoe in Palgrave with the C3 gang and the dogs.
The big guy had me doing hill sprints for a while, then settled in.
9 AM

Cycling 1:52:57 [3] 17.34 km (9.2 kph) +291m

Albion hills with a big gang.
Storm and DD_11 rented fatties, and I was on Plus tires on my ‘Bent.

We did 3 laps of all the fatbike trails, then back to the chalet parking lot then back to find the ladies and do another loop with Funderstorm, Bash, Browner and Tracy.

Some hard grinds up snowy hills. The ‘bent managed to climb everything but one nasty slope, but floundered when we tried to go off the packed trails more than the fatties did.

Ski helmet and goggles were perfect, but -15 is about the limit for my boots.
