3 PM

X-C Skiing (Kingdom Valley) 1:02:55 [2] 10.57 km (5:57 / km) +8m 5:56 / km

Home after overnight flight to Boston from Smurf via NY, then bus. Maybe 3 hours sleep on top of not much last week, so ready for an early doze.

Got snow on the Fields trails, but it's fair to poor with a few icy sections and generally thin granular cover. Only one short bare patch, which I'll fill in tomorrow.

10 AM

X-C Skiing race (Auburn Ski Club) 19:55 [5] 4.3 km (4:38 / km)

Blue M-21 sprint course. Fun and quick. Trails in excellent shape: full cover, hard surface and well groomed.

Much slower than the elite skiers at 12 min, still closer than if we were running. Mistake to 2 taking wrong side trail, but knew it right away and only lost 30 seconds.
11 AM

X-C Skiing 38:00 [3] 5.5 km (6:55 / km)

Control pickup.

Setting out white controls and warming up.

X-C Skiing race 54:52 [4] 8.48 km (6:28 / km) +109m 6:05 / km

Ran unofficially to try green course. Came into maze at high school too low and turned further low for big error 4 min. Next control also too low for 30 s lost.

Stopped for a minute on way to 5 to fix code box 51 which was knocked over and had flag lying separately. Since I was unofficial, thought I could spare the time to try and fix it. This was the central control of a butterfly and just got beaten up more later on.

Further along, a couple missed turns in the larger networks of narrow trails and while correcting quickly, still lost 2 min.

Need to tape a compass onto the map holder and use it occasionally.

X-C Skiing warm up/down 20:00 [2] 2.0 km (10:00 / km) +271m 5:58 / km

Cleaning up start/finish and moving material to parking lot.

X-C Skiing (Tahoe XC) 23:46 [3] 3.03 km (7:51 / km) +36m 7:24 / km

After another early morning arena setup and prep for today's sprint relays, a chance to watch the intense competition as 2 person teams each completed 3 laps through short but challenging courses. Even at the elite level many World Cup teams stumbled with navigation errors.

Got a chance to try out two of the courses later in the day, towards the end of the open relay competition. Courses certainly were tricky, with lots of choices on the narrow mazes.

WCup middle race. Predawn setup of start/finish areas as usual. Distributing gps units to racers later on. Later on up to map exchange to releive workers. Then short search for overtime racer in afternoon, who was just slow.

Picking up controls. Setting out controls for tomorrow. Sprint relay will be awesome: 2 skiers, 3 legs each, lots of narrow trails at a very fast pace.
