Tuesday night race
I was being a space case right before the race, and missed getting a spot in the start pen. I ended up in the back row, but the other ladies were there so I figured it was ok. Slick, icy, rutty conditions with a chaotic start and one fall near the front of the field. Made it around that but really got stuck hard behind one guy with very crazy wide form. Took me most of a lap to get around him, and by then everything was strung out and the next group pretty far ahead. I was feeling good so just kept picking people off. Then surprisingly saw Ari on the side of the course yelling "oof" or something like that. Found out later it sounded like a well planned fall. I was getting somewhat closer to one of the lead groups, but didn't have enough distance to make the gap. And luckily held off Ari at the finish line! Gotta barge my way closer to the front of the start line next time, so much passing tired me out.
Skiing 49:55  6.8 mi (7:20 / mi)
Post race ski on some of the natural icy snow and then the course when the 2nd wave was done.
Not many hours last week but feeling mighty burnt out. I think it was the hassle of birthday planning/shopping all week long plus a surprise stomach bug that led to no sleep Thursday night. Sunday BKL + crazy trampoline park + entertaining guests all day + hilly trainer ride = zombie.
Skiing 15:00  1.0 mi (15:00 / mi)
BKL at Great Brook on actual snow. Not enough to groom but definitely rock skis around the fields. Andy sat this out too, but I figured I might as well go up and do that coach thing. I had too much wax, but didn't really matter with the kiddos. We did some hill work, which seemed a bit too hard for them. I think the head coach is pushing them a little too much. We had them skiing for almost 1.5 hrs, but at the end they had taken their skis off and were running for the tag game. Lots of smiles with the games at the end.
Cycling 1:00:00  18.78 mi (3:12 / mi)
Tour de Zwift after a crazy bday party day. I'm so toast and my house is a wreck.
Skiing 45:00  6.25 mi (7:12 / mi)
Warmup/cooldown. WIth not much snow Weston was pretty packed. And snowmaking pipelines went across the course the minute the race was over. Couldn't get much volume after the race.
Skiing race 13:25  2.61 mi (5:08 / mi)
Race for Snow, evening race this year. This is always a fun event that the local kids set up. The past 2 years Andy has done the lollipop race, but with a nasty stomach bug she was sitting it out and trying to recover for her bday party on Sun. So I just went down for the adults race, a mass start 5k for the women. One of the highschool girls put on a fast start (read not double poling in the double pole zone), so I followed her up the hill and down through the driving range. Snow guns were out and she bobbled hard at the bottom of the downhill, so I pushed for a pass and was out front the rest of the race. I ended up lapping the entire field on the short 800m laps. Felt good and like I could have raced a lot farther (hopefully that feeling lasts for the marathon coming up).
